My experience;
You can only start IVF once the Humira has worked. Sometimes you need 2X 2 injections and then wait 2 weeks to test in between and that adds up to a couple of months.
It stays in your body for a few weeks after, so you should probably start in November with Humira if you are going ahead with it.

    Yes a friend of mine had to wait nine months to begin ivf as she needed lots of immune treatment first.

    I have my humira in the fridge staring at me. I just feel so anxious about taking it. Crazy really as Iíve taken it before but looking back at the humira thread I do think lots of ladies feel like this.
    Just need to build up the courage now!

    Happy Sunday everyone

    I think once you have a child you become more careful about your health. I donít know if I can justify putting myself at risk during a pandemic to give my child a sibling. Thatís my dilemma

    Pookiepoo thatís it exactly.
    The ridiculous thing is I pushed to have this drug as itís worked so well in the past for me.
    All I see now is the negatives. My little one means everything to me.
    Itís so hard x

    Your only 36. You have time. Are you trying naturally?

    I have frozen embryos, but still feel like Iím running out of time. Thereís only so old I can be when pregnant.

    Iím 41 now, Iíve not updated my sign off thing for ages. I conceived naturally while on humira twice. Iíve never been pregnant before taking humira either with ivf or without. Humira is what seems to help. Just scared to take it for various reasons.

    I also conceived naturally with Humira. We were planning FET after I had my daughter and boom, pregnant after two shots of Humira. MC unfortunately.

    We did Humira again and went through with FET. BFN.

    Now I donít know if we should just try once without any immune and see what happens....my first IVF pregnancy was without immune. I had to terminate because of a virus complication, but I had not miscarried !!!

    Can I please ask has anyone ever been prescribed Humira and hydoxycloroquine at the same time ? Did you end up taking the humira ? I similarly have it in the fridge and wondering if I should take it. It expires this month
