IVF/ICSI at RVH??? Cycle buddy OCT/NOV xx


Hi girls

I'm currently on my BCP waiting to start ICSI at the RVH Belfast. I have my screening appointment tomorrow and hopefully starting in October was wondering if there are any other ladies on here that will be going through treatment around OCT/ NOV time?? Would be nice to have someone that I can share with x

Hi Gemma, looks like we got our golden ticket at the same time and will be on the same kinda schedule. i had my screening appointment on 17/9 and will be startin BCP on 26/9 when AF arrives

from what i can tell that means i should start down regging in oct and EC/ET in november. i am also at the RFC belfast. have you been given your protocol and schedule yet?

Hi girls, just want to wish you the best of luck with your cycles :-)

I'm on waiting list for RFC Belfast. Are you on NHS or self-funded treatment? And how long was waiting time. I rang today and was told that waiting time at the moment is 9mths for self-funded and 12 mnths for NHS funded. I have a private ICSI cycle with Origin during the summer but sadly that didn't work. I think we should get to the top of the NHS list at the Royal around May time so we are going to go for one more private cycle before that. Just working out where - Origin, RFC Belfast or GCRM (Glasgow) -- time is not on our side as I am 39 and have low ovarian reserve.
Who is your consultant at Royal? And do you know your protocols yet?
I'll be cheering you on.

hi threebirds, im so sorry to hear that your first try did not work my husbadna nd I were put on the waiting list with RFC in Dec '11 both their NHS and self funded lists. we were offered the self funded option at the end of July but had to turn it down as we will need icsi and could not afford to fund it ourselves. we had been told in Dec that the NHS list had a wait of 10months which has turned out to be pretty accurate as we recieved the letter for NHS funded treatment on the 12th september.

i had my blood screening done on the 17th and will be starting BCP in the next few days when AF arrives then see the consultant for injection training and treatment schedule. we will be doing long protocol which apparently is standard for RFC.
sorry rambled on a bit there but hopefully it helps in some way

doodle i was exactly the same and never thought i'd see the day where i would be excited about giving myself injections everyday lol

i was told to send the form back with the exact date i start the BCP (which will be tomorrow or friday) depending on when AF arrives, then they will send me an appointment to go in for injection training. from what i can tell that should put me on track for an EC date of around the second week of November.

TCMC yay for af and BCP! I would say that this is the first month in about 3 and a half years that i will be glad to see the oul witch!!!Im due to start mine on Saturday all going well!! i Cant wait!! Have you got your schedule yet? You seem to be about a week ahead of me! You on any supplements? I was thinking of trying that maya massage as well. Partly to relax and partly to have my 2ww potentially filled with stuff to do!!!!

Hi threebirds- im on a private round so im not sure what the wait time is for the NHS goes at the minute- i heard it had gotten a good bit quicker though recently.
