Hey everyone, I'm back...I have pulled myself together after our BFN and we had our follow up appointment yesterday.  Dr Kini has advised of a few changes for next attempt so we will be doing flare protocol and freezing some  ^HappySperm^ for a back up.  We are going to do few months of DHEA and coenzyme q 200mg first see if that helps and hope to go again in Jun/Jul.   Does anyone have any experience of these supplements?  ^pray^ this is our time.

wishingalways - yaaay you are so close now  ;D  I had the infusion as the nurse had noted that I had a high left ovary so they would need to do a bit of pushing to get there and I might be in pain and I don't remember a thing until I came out!  Guess everyone is different.

Love to all xx

Just wanted to add I think I have a high tolerance to pain relief, I had morphine at the hosp once and it didn't really affect me that much. I took tramadol for painful periods and o think that's y. So every1 is different. Xxxxx

Wishingalways - that's fab news about your follies, you get get some nice juicy eggs from them!  I want for full sedation & wad aware of what was going on until near the end when I fell asleep.  When I came round shortly after I then went on my way after an hour wait so it's nothing to worry about.  Good luck hun  ^hugme^

Brellini - great news they are going all out to make a difference to your next cycle, sorry I don't know anything about those supplements, what are these for?  I'm waiting on my review appt to come through - how long did you have to wait  ^hugme^

Had review at the EPC in the Vic today & it turns out pregnancy ended up being an early eptopic not in my cervix after all!!  What they removed was some tissue with bacteria (how that got there no-one knows) will ask more q's at NW.  I've just been so, so bloody unlucky but at least there's no long term damage & they said I should still be able to have a healthy pregnancy  :(

Taking a few months off but will have some fun again trying au naturale as I've missed my hubby!

Hope everyone else is well

Thanks everyone, I'm still in two minds about what to choose.... why do they give you the bloody choice, I was quite happy to have sedation if they said that was how everyone does it but now i dont know... too many decisions im driving myself  ^idiot^ and then I have to decide one or two.... :-\

Thats great news bellini that they are going to tweek it next time and that your still staying positive. I dont know much about those supplements but have heard of them before, they get mentioned alot on other fertility forums.  Anything is worth a try i would say, it cant do any harm.

I am having another dilema as well.  I have been having acupuncture for about 6 months in preperation for the IVF and she has been great but its just bloody typical she is off for 5 days over easter weekend and when is my EC friday and my transfer will probably be Easter Monday.  She has given me the numbers of other acupuncturist but I dont know whether to phone them or not... surely they dont know anything about me but is it best to just leave it until say tuesday or try to get someone.  My acupuncturist said that she would usually give me a session within 24 hrs before egg transfer and within 24 hours after egg transfer and she is going to be away for both!   :-[ :-[

Tjenny, hey hun.  How are you doing?  Sounds like you have just been so unlucky indeed.   ^hugme^  Hope you get some answers at your follow up.  The DHEA is to improve egg quality although they don't necessarily know if there was anything wrong with them.  Due to self funding we will only have this and maybe one more go so worth trying.  Coenzyme q is apparently an antioxidant that might help with DH sperm motility/quality.  We'll give anything a bash!  I had a phone appointment for the follow up as we are a bit away.  It was suppose to be 16th April (so about a month) but they phoned on Monday to say they had a cancellation if I wanted to bring it forward.  Also, I did ask for appointment when I phoned in to confirm BFN on OTD and was given it there and then so don't know if you have to wait longer for it to go through the normal channels.

Wishingalways - sorry I'm not having accupuncture so I don't know what to suggest.

Fairypants & Revols - good luck for your upcoming tx's  ^reiki^

Hi Folks,
 
Sorry I haven't been on in a few weeks, and seems like a lot has been going on, so havent caught up to do personals.
 
Good luck to those currently going through tx, and  ^hugme^ to those who have been unsuccessful. I hope you are all doing well, staying strong and positive.
 
AFM - I finally had my appoinment for screening and AMH yesterday after just over 2 years on the waiting list. Nurse advised us that can take between 4-6 weeks for these to come back as they send them away in batches.
 
She said as soon as they are back and signed off by consultant, we will receive our pack of drugs in the post!!  :o
 
So hoping to get started on my May period.

Hey Brellini - NW confused us when they sent a letter detailing the last cycle of how many eggs, date of transfer etc but the reason for treatment was down as "? Male factor".  This is news to us as we were always under the "unexplained umbrella" so got a few Q's to ask as poor DH is worried now  :-\

I also want to Q my eggs as we had 11 collected, 7 fertilised but only 1 blast in the end, all 6 failed at day 5??  I didn't question at the time as I was so excited in getting a top quality which did work but feel I need the answers too.

Like you we are now self funding as we were only granted 2 NHS attempts & the waiting list is now at 3 yrs, good god, I'll be collecting my pension by the time that comes round, lol.  Parents are helping out so we giving this everything we have.

Wishing - I did acu but was able to get her at the right time.  I wouldn't worry about it though as loads of people don't have it & still get BFP  :)

Gem & Stamper - it won't be long Luvies, hang in there  ^hugme^

Fairypants & Revols - waiting to start is the hardest thing ever.  In fact even when you start there is even more waiting.  I wish there was some kind of recognition reward for patience given what us girls go through, lol x

Hope everyone has a great Easter break x
