Hi guys, Been scanning the net today for some support as I'm not getting any at the moment from the hospital. Been off work with immense endo pain,flooding etc for last 3 days and I'm due to pick up the down regulation drugs on 8/5/08 to start self funded ivf. Just feel that everything is goin wrong before I start and its overshadowing the excitement that I WANT 2 b feeling right now b4 the ivf begins. Found out the day after we committed to Ivf that I'm being made redundant from work and, as a result, my endo pains just getting worse as I'm worried how I'm gonna pay back the money we've loaned to do it . I really wanted a support groups phone number or website address but haven't even been pointed in the right direction by the consultant - he didn't look at me once during our last consultation and we timed how long that meeting was - 3 MINUTES!!!SO ANGRY!!! £100 for 3 Min's work, not bad eh?? I'm defo in the wrong job. We were given a pack of stuff to read but Ive got most of my info from the net re: ivf procedure etc. don't know what drugs are for what, symptoms to expect etc-can any1 help me?? Ive just read this back and I'm sounding like a right moaner but I'm scared and angry and fed up and if I changed what Ive just typed then I'm not telling u whats in my heart or my head and that would be a cop-out i feel. Ive got the best partner ever and hes so excited to start the ivf but I'm not in that place because I worry in-case it doesn't work that I'll be left feeling worse than ever. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can face the procedure and obtain the tools to stay strong if it doesn't work?? Thank u so much for taking the time to read my moaning and i really would be grateful for any tips. Next time, I promise to be more positive.

Love, Em x

Sorry to har that you are worried - you're right, you should be excited. I am sorry your consultant was so awful (that really is bad BTW)....also if they work within the HFEA guidelines like they are meent to, they MUST offer you counselling....so call them back and ask again?...it is yuor right as a paying person ^bigbad^ ^bigbad^ ^bigbad^

Hello Em, welcome to Fertility Friends. :)

I am so sorry your consultant has not been more supportive. ^hugme^
What a lot of worry you are facing right now. I do hope you can work things out and figure out a way of affording your treatment.

For an idea of what is involved with the IVF process, chec out this link:

While undergoing treatment, you might find it useful to join other ladies having treatment at the same time. The Cycle Buddies threads are just for that. You will fnd a thread, usually with a funny/inspiring name for this year's buddies. Just pop along to the appropriate month (May/June for you) and say "Hi" when you are ready to start treatment.
