Hello Everyone

Its been a while since I visited the site.

After our first attempt of ICSI Failed, we just couldnt afford to have any further treatment in the UK, so weve sold up and ship out to Cyprus. ^sunny^

We have just started treatment again and its so much cheaper C£1500.00 for ICSI plus drugs, scans and consultations. the clinic is spotless no waiting around for appointments.

They have done further tests and we found that we needed antibiotics for Clymidia, we were not tested for that in the UK.

I have started injections on the 2nd day of my period which the clinic admisters

Superfact - am
Puregon - am
Merional 75 - pm

They seem to do things differently over here monitoring you whilst on the drugs so the can increase or decrease the dose. They have a 40% success rate which is good.

I would love to hear from any one.

Good luck speak to you soon!

Katrina

Oh my Katrina,

it sounds like you have found something very good over there. Maybe this will be a good one for those couples out there who have had to stop for financial reasons! Where are you staying? In a hotel?
Good luck with your transfer tomorrow!

Hi All

Went to the clinic on day 3 after egg collection for transfer.

We got to see our embies under the microscope before they were transferred, facinating 2 X Five Cell, and 1 X Eight Cell, all three transferred.

No pain felt at all, we actually watched the embryos being transferred into the womb by ultra sound, and photos of embies in the womb were taken for us to keep.

After an hour of rest at the hospital I went to have an 500mg Primolut injection, and now taking Progynova 2mg and Duphaston 10mg 3 x a day for additional embryo support along with supossitories 3 X a day and asprin 1 X day.

Fingers crossed now on 2ww back on the 14th April for blood test.

IsIs : We are renting a place in Cyprus, no intentions of comming at back to UK at the moment.

Lots of Love

Katrina XXXXX

Good Luck Katrina ;D on your 2ww, were hoping to start icse for the 2nd time in May. We are coming to Cyprus on Sunday for a much earned break, the difference in prices is unbelivable our 1st ICSE was £6000+.
Wishing you lots of luck
