Hello,

I'm new on here but not new to the process of Ivf, I'm on my second go and started Gonal-f injection this morning (8am). I would love to be able to talk about it to others.

Is there anyone else going through this ?

Thanks
Claire  :)


Ok a little about my Ivf history -: I have only ever had frozen cycles as I ended up getting ohss and ended up in hospital for 2 weeks so had to wait for 6 months to go through a frozen transfer, I then became pregnant however had a misscage at just over 6 weeks, I then went on to another frozen transfer but it did not take so here I am a year later :)

to FF, Claire!!! 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 am not going through treatment at the moment, but I am one of the success stories. My daughter was born in November 2009 thanks to IVF.

Here are a few links that I think might help you.

IVF General chat ~ 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. Here is the link for January/February CLICK HERE

Frozen Embryo Transfer ~ 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.

Wishing you all the luck in the world for this cycle. ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

We have 6 still in freeze so started the ovalution testing again today for my second FET to be done in the next week or so and very nervous!

Hi Belle,

Sorry to hear you ending up getting OHSS as I know it's really not nice,
I going through injections at the moment for a fresh cycle and as you can only imagine I am a little worried about getting OHSS again (aghrr).

When do go go through transfer ?

Wishing you luck and crossing my fingers

Hi Claire!

I am having a FET on Tues! My last transfer was a little complicated so I may be put to sleep for this one grrrr! My curvicks curve down or something nothin is simple ha! This time were having a 5 day FET.

I can understand you worrying about getting OHSS again, I know if I have to go thru a fresh cycle again I will panic about getting it again! Hopefully they will monitor you so you don't get poorly again. Let me know how you get on. Have you had your baseline scan yet?

Wishing you all the luck and keeping my fingers crossed for you hun!

Hi Belle,

Glad you didnt have to go under and the transfer was ok. Try and stay positive,
I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts  ;D

Had another scan this morning and seen a couple of follices on each ovary but need to grow a little more so still taking Gonal-f and got a scan booked for Monday, if all goes to plan EC will be Wednesday or Thursday so fingers crossed.

Wishing you all the luck in the world x

Hi all i am new to IVF and have my first appt on the 9th Feb and then my planning appt on the 11th. My period is actually due on the 11th so what do you reckon are my chances of being able to start with that cycle as i understand with the long protocol, the nasal spray is started on cycle day 21?

Someone said i may have to take Norethisterone tablets 7 days prior to my period which means i would have to wait until the March cycle - did anyone else have to do this? I have regular periods so only thought these tablets were to induce a period?

I have had 3 ectopics but known as tubal abortions as my body rejected the developing embryos from my tube, still with the pain and bleeding but luckily not a rupture so no need for tube removal. 

After 3 1/2 years of TTC and 3 lost pregnancies and me being 39 in October, we decided to start IVF.

Good luck to everyone xx
