Re: HELP - FLYING and IVF

hi midlands lass, safari-girl is right.  it is v bad for circulation to sit in a car for long periods and pregnant women are meant to stretch out and exercise after a certain amount of hours (don't know what this is though!).  personally i would fly - hopefully your luggage is on wheels so nothing to carry.  i had 3day transfer 4 days before i flew back from south africa and had bfp.  i think i wouldn' have been happy to have flown back earlier though. 
best of luck with your treatment  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

    Flying with Medications
    « Reply #11 on: 27/11/06, 09:14 »
    Hello ladies,
    just a quick question.
    I am going to buy my meds in the UK and will cycle abroad. My question is, can I get them in my hand luggage? If not, isn't there a danger of freezing if I put them in the hold?

    Thank you!

    Hi Teoroy,

    I always fly with the drugs in my hand luggage so there is no chance of the drugs getting lost.  You will need to get a letter from your clinic stating what drugs your are carrying and what it is for. 

    If you are flying British airways I would give them a call to double check because of the new hand luggage restrictions.

    Any restrictions at all on flying in 2ww

    Hi everyone

    I hope that nobody minds me posting here.  I'm hoping to have my ICSI treatment to try for a second baby in the UK but the timing of treatment means that I would have to fly a 2 hour flight in the second week of the 2ww.  A friend has worried me by saying she doesn't think you are supposed to fly during the 2ww but I'm hoping that is incorrect - thought that this would be the place to ask.

    Good luck with the treatment everyone.

    Hi Claire
    Of course you can post here, we do clock up a few airmiles on this board!  I flew about 4-5 days after transfer from spain.    Hopefully some of those that have gone to South Africa will also answer as they fly during different periods of the second week wait (and that would be a 12 hour flight).  There doesnt seem to be a clear cut answer for flying or not flying, and of course by the nature of our treatment we all fly during the 2WW.
    I would also ask your clinic and if they say no to try and ask the reason why e.g. is it because they dont want you sitting for a long period of time etc.
    I have not been of enormous help, but hopefully others will post as well!!!
    Good luck with your upcomng treatment ...

    Thanks for the replies.  It's great to see all the BFPs on the signature lines.

    Good luck safari girl and radnorgirl with the remainder of the pregnancies.

    I have flown within the same week as transfer twice and got BFPs !

    I think it is only a potential problem later on in pregnancy, or if you have e.g. a known problem with blood clotting.

    Good luck !
