Spain- Instituto Bernabaeu part 7
« Reply #910 on: 18/01/21, 17:23 »
Awww, I totally understand your rationale Love_Lucy but remember that each cycle has a 50/50 chance of success, so success on the last 2 cycles doesn't mean this one won't work. Try to keep your positivity up. According to stats, 95% of people have achieved pregnancy by the time they've had the number of cycles that I've had, but none have worked for me to date.  There is no way of knowing, and each transfer has equal chance of success.

I've also been trying to find out if IVF is classed as essential medical treatment or not. I can't find any uk guidelines on what's classed as essential. It does seem like a good idea to get a letter from the clinic in current times, just to give some kind of backup for entry to spain.

What I have seen though is that you now need a negative PCR result to get back into the UK after being in spain. Thats new; it used to just be quarantine. I wonder if IB could arrange another PCR test once we get to spain? Or would the UK accept the PCR result that we used to get into spain, assuming its still within the 72 hours? The guidelines are so vague. Its hard to know.

    I just had my own question answered on the news from a passenger they were interviewing arriving home. He said that he only needed a PCR test on the way out of the UK, but he was only away a few days, and the same test was valid for getting back into the UK xx

    Thanks for sharing your experience Lollie, I hope your trip out there in November was a successful one ❤️

    Vrw100 - oh thatís good to know, I hadnít even realised a negative PCR could be a requirement to get back in and yes I think iíll request a letter as well for proof of why Iím travelling.
    You sharing your positivity helps me keep going. Iím praying your luck is turned around in your next cycle!

    Still waiting for the period, around a week late now. One thing that I always had going for me in my ttc journey were regular cycles, always spot on between 28-30 days. Now it seems totally messed up!

    Awww, don't worry, its probably just taking longer to get back into sync. It will get back to regular as clockwork I'm sure. To be honest, its probably better if it delays you a bit because it gives more time to get the border open.  I think it would be quite a challenge to get flights just now, especially since we aren't allowed to cross regions to get to other airports. And even more of a headache if we were trying to book flights into and out of Spain within a 72 hour time window for the darn PCR test. Xx

    Hi Everyone,
    Iím a total newbie to this forum but I have been watching it over the past few months. Its such a big help to read everyone's stories so I just wanted to thank you for all of your info.

    My heart is breaking for all of you who have gotten bad news. This really is the longest, toughest road but I hope that all you strong ladies get the baba that you have been waiting for.

    As for me, I have low ovarian reserve. Started TTC aged 36. We tried IUI once, then moved onto IVF where we only got 3 eggs (1 mature). No fertilization. Then we tried ICSI and got 6 eggs, no fertilization. Now moving on to ED in IB Alicante.

    This damn pandemic has really thrown a spanner in the works. But we are supposed to be finally travelling on Friday so fingers crossed we get there.

    Baby dust to you all xXx

    Hi Lola, welcome to the group and thanks for sharing your story. Having people to talk to that totally get it on this forum has been such a comfort during the tough times.
    Wishing you all the best for your cycle and journey to Spain. Where are you from?

    Vrw100  - yes itís actually what I keep telling myself that a delay in my period wouldnít be such a bad thing right now as hopefully weíll be in a better position with the virus. Just got to believe itís all happening for the right reasons.

    Hope - how are you feeling? Hoping the virus hasnít got you too badly!

    Bailey - is your appointment coming up soon? Hope the clinic are supportive in the best way forward.

    Shoegals - how are you doing? Hope little bub is growing nice and strong

    Xx

    Hi Lola - welcome to the board. I am in Ireland too. I had frozen transfer in September in IB and am now 20 weeks pregnant. Let me know if you need any information. Is this your first cycle with IB?

    Love Lucy and Vrw100 - How are you both? Are the travel instructions still very confusing or has Spain opened its borders for arrivals from Britain yet?

    Bailey - How are you doing? Have you a review with your clinic soon?

    Hope - how are you feeling, I hope your symptoms have not been too bad.

    ZC - congratulations on your pregnancy - hope the scan goes well today.

    Welcome to the group Lola. I am also Irish living in London. I am not currently having treatment at IB and am actually at a clinic in London. However we are old patients of IB.
    I am keeping grand ladies and our follow up appointment is Thursday 28th of January. But I don't expect that the doctor will be able to provide any answers. Just probably more so talking about how to go forward.
    Love_Lucy I hope that your period comes soon so that you can plan your transfer. It's typical when you want it to come it doesn't and when you don't want it come it does. Best of luck with your transfer.
    Lola also wishing you lots of luck with your transfer and have a safe flight. Keep us posted about how you get on.
    ZC congratulations on your pregnancy and keeping everything crossed that the scan goes well. How many weeks are you?
    VRW100 what's your plan at the moment. I hope you are keeping well.
    Hope how have you been since your positive coronavirus test result. What are your plans now?
    Shoegals I'm delighted to hear that you are at the half way mark. Will you find out the gender or keep it as a surprise?
    Love and lots of baby dust to all. xxx
