Hi Wish, thanks for your kind words, I also really hope that we can cycle again using DH's sperm. As DH has to have TESE to get sperm, we've been told that if they do find cancer then that will be the end of our fert treatments using his sperm as it is too risky doing biopsy; they can spread cancer cells to the surrounding skin So sorry about your BFN with your IUI, hang in there though; I think your chances are much higher with ICSI, especially if there are some lazy sperm issues... When I did my stim cycle I didn't have to go on the pill; I did a short antagonist cycle and started with (I think it was) Puregon. Are you nervous about the injections? I was so nervous then found it so easy when it came time for it, so don't worry too much. Also I was really lucky that I had no bad reaction to the meds. Sending loads of

Dancing queen; how are you finding IVFA? I've heard that they're very good at Bondi. Sending loads of your way for this cycle.

Crystal; congrats on your pregnancy. It sounds like you've waited a long time for this one. Wishing you a healthy & happy 9 months

Crystal- Congratulations! Stories like yours give me hope...Sometimes it seems like you're chasing a ghost but then you hear success stories and it reignites something I guess.

Dancing Queen- Awesome that you've started....I can't wait to. Any side effects so far?

MJ- I had a peek at your journal....wow!! You guys seem to have a great relationship and I really hope you get some good news, you've had a tough journey but you have a great attitude- it's really refreshing. I'm not worried about the injections.. my best mate has gestational diabetes and I gave myself a (dry) needle cause I was curious,... haha weird! Im petrified of the 2ww more than anything! Was it as hard as what I imagine?

AFM- I have counselling and financials Friday, FS on Thursday..all tests are done and dusted, I've taken off my knickers for strangers more times than my husband the last few months! They run a regional satellite clinic quarterly in my town so I'm hoping to catch the June run otherwise I have to travel to Melbourne or wait until September. I'll know more Thursday!

Hi Wish, Not quite sure when I will be going in. It was supposed to be last Friday but my follies were being stubborn so I'm still waiting. I go in for more b/w tomorrow so hopefully with the increased injection of puregon they have grown. fx'd

GL with your testing in a few days.

Hi girls
It's nice to see some Aussies on here !
I'm also with IVFA bondi and I find them great (especially FS)
However my first cycle has just ended with a crashing halt . I got AF a few days before my test date . Was very sad as who knows what happened. I will probably do a FET in June

Mj I am so sorry to hear about your DH that must be really scary for both of you. Hope he is ok and you can continue your ttc

GL ladies all the best with your cycles

Just a quickie from me.

Hi sheri76, aleja & sam

Wish, I know what you mean about taking off your knickers more times for others than our hubbies. I think everyone in Sydney has had a peek down there now Yep, DH & I are very lucky to have a great relationship; the main thing that has got us through all this madness I think. We have the scan & the ultrasound today but unfortunately won't see the urologist for 2 more weeks, so I don't think we'll get any definitive answer re the cancer for at least a couple more weeks, which is extremely frustrating Hope your counselling & financials went well
