Wells, I'm so sorry to hear this. I would have thought they would jump at the chance to have a young(er) person on board. It also said they would do tests like HSG if you hadn't already had one. Could you request tests via your gp and then get back to them?
Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been about the last couple of weeks, things have been hectic!
Wells I'm so sorry to hear this as well. Good idea Spacebunnyx about the HSG, its worth a try perhaps?
Has anyone here got PCOS? I hope they'll accept me, with PCOS. Less than 2 weeks to my appointment. Rather nervous about the whole thing.
By the way, when they do the EC are you awake or asleep? That part frightens me the most. Also the injections, do you give them to yourself or do you have to go to the hospital every time for one? I live over 200 miles away and it could get rather expensive, travelling backwards and forwards.
Sorry for all the questions, I just don't know much about the whole IVF process.
Clefairy - I don't know about the PCOS as I am unexplained
You will do all injections yourself except the kisspeptin trigger shot which will be done at the hospital and you will need to stay overnight as you need blood taken the following morning too.
The thought of the injections is worse than actually doing them. I quite looked forward to them each day!!
I was really worried about the egg collection too as it is under light sedation. However I don't remember a thing and slept through the whole procedure! The fact it was only sedation meant that I was up and awake straight after which was great.
I had a call from the hospital today and all 9 of my embryos are still going strong! 1 is not as good as the others but the rest are doing amazing and she said there are some perfect looking embies
We are set for a 5dt on tues at 1pm!!!
My boobs are sooooooo sore from the progesterone, I can't wear a bra with wire and have had my friends toddler jumping all over me this afternoon so they really hurt
But I'm not complaining
Wellsk I am so sorry to hear that. That really sucks Stay positive though.
My scan went really well. He said that I have a lot of follies there so I will only need to lowest dose and he said with what he can see, it is very very unlikely that my amh will come back as bad. So hopefully I can start next cycle. It is slightly annoying because my cycle starts Friday and it is not enough time to get all the tests done so it will be next cycle now. But I have been waiting 4 years so another month is fine.
I love reading everyones stories on here. It really helps the time pass. I can't wait to start seeing
Babybell that is so good.
Do the injections make you more emotional? I am already quite an emotional person and think this may make me a wreck haha.
Great news Babybell!! I found this part the hardest last time - waiting for the call to say how they are getting on. 5dt is excellent and maybe even some frosties amongst them...?!!
Cass- excellent news about your scan.
Clefairy - Last cycle I got told I had PCOS and cycled just fine with a good number of eggs. They will watch you closely and adjust meds as appropriate. Apparently I don't have it any more!
Nightmare start to day today - car broke down on the M4 whilst I was on my way for my day 5 scan - I was distraught! Anyway, finally made it in.. scanned and bloods done. Had 6 follies on one side and 2 on the other. I have fewer on one side because I have no tube there. happy with that number of follies as for me its about quality - last time my eggs weren't very pretty but they're go-ers! Next scan on Wednesday - hope its not quite a stressful!
Cass glad the scan went well - I was fine with the injections until day 10. I called my boss to tell him I needed the rest of the week off and he was a real sh*t about it!! I completely broke down and cried for ages!!
Space - what a nightmare, glad you got there in the egg. That's a good number of follies
Good luck for weds - let us know how u get on
AFM I am officially PUPO!!! I have 2 beautiful blasts on board - Bert and Ernie
The embryologist said they were very good quality and I think they were a 4AA and 4AB
We have 2 more that will def be frozen and they will check the last 2 tomorrow.
I cannot believe that we still have 6!! I was really worried about having none!
And to get at least 2 in the freezer is amazing!!
OTD is 6/4 but no way will I be able to wait till then!
Thanks all, I'm going back to my GP very soon to demand they refer myself and DH to a specialist. DH also needs a second SA done in the hope the trial may change their mind. I agree space, you think they'd be really interested in the impact on those who are younger than the limit for IVF on the NHS. I know they're looking out for me I guess, but it's so frustrating when they know as well as I do that due to DH's sperm morphology IVF is probably our only shot!
Ironically I've had more tests in ten minutes by the IVF trial, than I've ever been offered by the NHS about my fertility!
Thanks though, will ask about the HSG.
Awesome news about being PUPO babybel! Really hope Bert and Ernie are sticky beans!
Congrats on getting on the trial Cass! You had much better luck than I had!
