Hello, i have joined FF to get advice and help from people who know what is going on in my life.
This year we are starting ISCI treatment using a donor as my partner has azoospermia.
We do have a donor already which is fantastic but feeling nervous about having the treatment and a little confused on what going to happen.
Has anybody had ISCI treatment who can fill me in a little, would really appriciate it?

to FF, Walds23!! This is a great website for support, information, laughter and friendship, it has kept me (relatively!) sane though all my treatment. I don't know how I would have coped without the lovely people here. Have a good look round the site, post in whatever section you want and make yourself at home. There are so many sections here with a huge amount of information, so whatever you are going through there will be someone here to help you.

I haven't had ICSI myself, I had 5 failed IUI's and one successful IVF. But I can point you in the direction of the ICSI board ~ CLICK HERE I am sure the lovely ladies there will be able to answer any questions you have.

We also have a Rough Guide To IVF ~CLICK HERE This is a breakdown of the procedure of IVF which is the same as ICSI up until the point of fertilisation, With ICSI the embryologist injects one good sperm into one good egg, and repeats until all are used. So it gives them a helping hand, with IVF the eggs and sperm are left to fertilise by themselves.

Here are another few links that you might find useful -

Donor sperm/eggs ~ CLICK HERE

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. Just pop along to the appropriate month and say "Hi" when you are ready to start treatment ~ CLICK HERE

The What Every New Member Needs To Know (includes a list of common abbreviations) thread will give you some info on how to navigate the site ~ CLICK HERE

We also have a newbie night in the chat room every Wednesday where you can meet other new members and a few more experienced (I won't use the term "old"!) members will be there to answer any questions you have about the site. CLICK HERE FOR INFO ON NEWBIE CHAT

If you look on the main forum index you will find location boards. You can find others in your area, and even people going to the same clinic who will provide invaluable advice - some groups even have meet ups.

Please feel free to ask more questions here, or on any other part of the site, there will be wonderful helpful people there to give you lots of support, information and cyber hugs if you need it. We go through all the highs and lows of treatment together.

Good luck!

Sue ^hugme^
