UK IVF ladies - Early Feb 2014


Are there any other ladies from the UK starting IVF in the next few weeks?

I attempted to start my first cycle back in October but I decided to stop when I found out my fallopian tube was leaking embryo toxic fluid into my uterus which was caused by the buserelin injections. I have since had my tube removed and i'm now ready to start my next IVF cycle.

I will start on the Buserelin injections on 2nd February for 19 days.

I'm looking forward to chatting to a few of you girls and going through this together.

Hi ladies,

I will be doing mild ivf first time and I am so nervous. I am trying to collect all the different tips from anywhere I can find.

However, I am too scared to read about the horror stories so will try and avoid them and just think positively.

I will be on gonal F and am hoping to freeze my embryos so will not have to go through this again.

I have the medication consultation on Jan 31st then shots begin week beginning 17th February hoping to transfer by latest 3rd March.

Good luck ladies

Bordeaux - What is mild IVF??

Technically this cycle will be my first IVF cycle because last time I stopped it at the end of down regging so I never actually used any of the stimming drugs.

I think it's good to be informed then at least you know what to expect.

IF your dates work out you'll be booked in for EC same week as me.

How many embryos are you having put back?

Sorry to hear about your last cycle hope you have a better experience this time around.

That will be great if we are on this journey together.

Mild ivf is the short protocol as we have male factor issues so the long protocol would probably make me over ovulate.

They recommend one embryo transfer but that is expensive if it does not stick so I would like two but not sure how I would feel about twins. Probably just blessed if they were healthy.

How about you? Also to prepare on folic acid iron vegetarian omega 3 and a conception assist vitamin

Hi MishC
Yeah it's my first go. It's been a long wait but finally here. Not feeling too bad after prostap, just a bit tender.

Hey ladies, can I join you? I'm starting buserelin (for the third time ) on the 9th Feb (see signature). We have an endoscratch booked for the 11th Feb. I'm on Menopur for stimms and Pregnyl for the trigger.

Cant wait to get started again and hoping 2014 brings us all our BFPs X

Bordeaux - You'll have to let us know how your appointment goes on 31st. It will be great if we are at the same stage. I'm getting 2 embryos put back but like you i'm unsure about twins but it's an awful lot of money if 1 doesn't stick. Plus I already have my 4yr old daughter so 3 kids seems like a lot to cope with. I'm going to take the risk though even though I've been advised not to ...lol

Bekah - Is prostap the down regging drug?

Pinkie - Of course you can join us. Hopefully 20124 is your year! How are you feeling about it all this time round?

What day of your cycle are you starting your IVF? I'm starting on day 21 and down regging for 18 days! I'm a complicated case because my stimmin drugs go out of date next month so ive been rushed through after my operation a couple of weeks ago. I was told they've never started an IVF case us so quick after an operation but because of my circumstances they'll do it.

Thanks for the welcome

I'm starting CD21 too which is 9th Feb. I usually down reg for about 12 days and then stim for about 10 (I think). Our first IVF got us 5 embryos which went to blastocyst. As it was NHS we only had one put back. Second round only got us 3 embryos so I had 2 put back on day 2. Keeping everything crossed for 2 good blasts this time

I'm feeling very calm about it this time. I know all the side effects of the drugs and how I am going to feel at each stage which helps. After what we have been through so far, I know we can handle most things but my biggest fear is another molar pregnancy. That was so incredibly hard on us both.

I'm also taking part in a study run by the clinic around the stress of IVF. Having filled in the first questionnaire this morning, I've just realised how all-consuming it becomes!

What stims are you on? How come they have such a short shelf life?!

xx
