hi there everyone
i was just wondering if anyone is going through treatment at the QE (BIRMINGHAM WOMENS HOSPITAL) as i had my first icsi treatment there and i am now thinking of getting my second attempt at the qe  but was wondering if there was anyone else who is currently going through treatment at the same hospital as we can share our experience and help each other
thank you

We are having ICSI. Drugs arrived yesterday, just waiting for start date now. I have irregular cycles so they want to scan me before i start the buserelin as i dont get a period while down regging like you would normally. When do you start?

Hi

I have had 2 previous treatments, both BFN. This 3rd go is my NHS attempt, which is why i'm now at the womens hospital. I am being kept on 2 powders, but they are thinking of alternating so i have only 1 one day then 2 the next etc. I usually over respond with even just 2!!

There are a couple of people who are at Bham Womens that talk on this thread here-----> http://www.fertilityfriends.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=135764.0 if you want to chat to some more people. Come and join us, the more the merrier!! :)

Hi NK

Yes 2 previous were self funded at the priory. You can have 2 private treatments and still keep your free go. If you have a 3rd go though you forfeit the NHS cycle. Luckily we had reached the top of the waiting list by the time we finished our 2nd cycle.
