Feeling a bit down in the mouth. After speaking with the nurse at the planning appointment, we felt quite upbeat and happy with what we were doing. She was lovely, and any questions we asked she was able to answer and had a lovely manner about her. We then met the embryologist and I instantly didn't warm to her. I couldn't wait to get out of the clinic for some reason. She couldn't / wouldn't give me straight answers instead opting for the 'nobody knows' standard answer. I know that with this type of treatment it's difficult to know, but it was the fact that she was so evasive with her answers. She certainly didn't put me at ease, but maybe that's why she's an embryologist and not a nurse.

Not overly worried about the injections. I know how to make up the syringes and how to inject. First injection on Tuesday morning which will no doubt be the worst but never mind.

Hi angeldust, how you feeling hun

Maz, sorry you didn't have a nice experience at the clinic. Funny how some staff can be ok one time and others really un approchable. Maybe she was having an off day.
Good luck with your 1st injection hun

Take care all

nik

Maybe she was having a off day they do tell you its not a 100% incase you
think they done somthing wrong and it was there fault if it never worked

Girls here are some questions that you may want to ask your nurse etc.
remember if there is anything on this list you feel you would like to ask your nurse then ask her infact you can copy and paste this list into your word doc and print this out



1. What were the main factors that contributed to this negative cycle?
(well you might as well start with the obvious one!!)

2. What are this clinics success rates for couples in our position (taking age and diagnosis into consideration)? And what is that statistic nationally?

3. Eggs:
a) How was the quality of the eggs? (Were they mature enough?)
b) Were there as many as you were expecting?
c) Would having egg collection a few days earlier or later help?
d) Would more monitoring during the stimulation phase help you to control my drugs better (and thus get a better result)?
e) Is there anything else that can be done to improve the eggs?
f) Can we still do egg share? /Should we consider using an egg donor?

4. Sperm:
a) How was the quality of the sperm?
b) Had the count, motility or morphology improved at all?
b.ii) Is there anything that can be done to improve this?
c) Would we get better results with SSR?
d) Should we consider donor sperm (or ‘donor back-up’)?
e) Should we consider an appointment with an urologist? (Whom would you recommend?)

5. Embryological questions:
a) How did the embryologist feel the ICSI procedure went? (E.g. was it easy to find sperm of good morphology in the sample?)
b) How well did fertilization go? (E.g. more quickly or slowly than expected)
c) Did any fertilized eggs produce unusual results? (E.g. 3 nuclei)
d) What was the overall quality of the embryos like?
e) How do you grade them/what is your opinion of grading vs. live baby rate?
f) Does any of this suggest any issues?
g) Could assisted hatching help us?
h) Would delaying transfer (or carrying it out earlier) have helped?
i) What is your opinion on going for blastocysts next time?
j) Can the embryologist remove the fragmentation in the embryos?
k) What do you feel the link is between fertilisation rate, embryo quality and live baby rate?
l) What is the policy with regard to freezing/frozen embryos?


6. The drugs:
a) How do you feel I responded to the drugs for down regulation? (Did it take longer or less time than expected?)
b) How do you feel I responded to the drugs for stimulation? (Did I respond too quickly or too slowly? Did I produce enough eggs? Did coasting for a few days effect egg quality?)
c) Did the trigger injection work as expected? (Should I have taken it earlier or later for better results?)
d) Do you feel I am on right drugs at the right dose or should this be changed next time?

7. Further tests:
a) Are their any further blood/hormone tests you would now recommend? (E.g. FSH, E2, etc.)
b) Should we test for immune issues?
c) Should we test for sticky blood?
d) Should we have any further genetic tests?
e) Would you recommend having a hysteroscopy? (Why?)
f) i) Would there be any point to do PGD?
ii) How many embryos to you need for this?
iii) What are the risks involved?
iv) Is each embryo tested for one genetic disease or 9 of the listed diseases?

8. Next cycle:
a) When can we try again? (Why then?)
b) i) Which drugs for down-regulation?
ii) Why do you feel this one would be better?
iii) What dose?
e) i) Which drugs for stimulation?
ii) Why do you feel this one would be better?
iii) What dose?
f) Would you recommend any additional treatment this time? (E.g. low doses of aspirin, IVIG, heparin, etc.)

Hi everyone, do you mind if I join you?
We have been referred for IVF last month and have been told to expect a 6-8 month wait for our first appointment. So although we are not starting for a while yet, I'm really interested to hear your stories and knowledge.
Good luck everyone.
