Hi all,

Hoping for some advice... I am currently on the pill and due to have my pill scan towards the end of next week, with a view to starting DR meds. Unfortunately, I have managed to catch a really terrible cold and so have been in bed for most of the last 24 hours  :( Brilliant timing - can't believe it, especially as our December tx was cancelled when we couldn't get to the clinic because of the snow  :mad:

Obviously, I've been taking my supplements, but I'm not eating atm as I feel too rough, and am struggling to drink plenty too. I am now wondering whether I ought to stay on the pill for another week or so and delay the pill scan? Wondered whether anyone has had a similar experience, or had advice from their clinic? Any info much appreciated!

Thanks everyone  :)

I feel your pain  :(  I've had a terrible cold virus for over 2 weeks, and although I'm getting a little better each day, I'm still not 100%.

I start stims in 6 days, and I've been in two minds to cancel the whole cycle.  Unfortunately I'm travelling abroad for treatment so its not that straight forward.

I would ring your clinic and see what they advise.  It wouldn't be such a big thing for you if your having treatment in the UK.

Sorry I can't offer any useful advise, but I'll be interested to read your other replies.

Good Luck and get well soon.

Hi Emma,

Thanks for posting and good to know that there is someone else out there who's had similar worries (but I am sorry you've been poorly too!)  :(

I emailed the IVF nurses and thought you would be interested in their response. Basically, they said that, pre-stimming, there's nothing to suggest that a viral infection will have any damaging effect on a cycle and my response to it, so it was really about whether I felt up to it.

As I've managed to keep up with my supplements, drink lots etc, I'm going to go ahead - don't think I can cope with doing anything else really. So, scan and dummy ET next week.

Good luck with your treatment  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^(and the travelling) and feel better soon  ^hugme^
