Hiya

I'm new to this forum, and not sure what to write.

We're due for our initial consultation for ICSI IVF in November.  I've read through the pack that the hospital has sent us & I'm a little nervous - to say the least.

The pack goes through the procedures, but it doesn't say how long it takes to complete a cycle of IVF - does anyone have a rough figure?  Our treatment should start in January - so I'm kinda figuring that - fingers crossed - by the end of February something should have happened.  Is that a close approximation?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  I feel in limbo as our appointment is 6 weeks away.

Cheers

Steph  :)

Hello Steph

Welcome to Fertility Friends.  An average cycle takes between 6-8 weeks tops, depending on your clinic.  Most take about 6'ish weeks to run completly.

Just wanted to offer our good luck to you :)  Fingers crossed and welcome again

I'm afraid I can't answer your questions but I am having my first IVF consultation this Wednesday so I can understand how you are feeling. I just wanted to wish you lots of luck with your appointment and welcome you to this site. You will find support by the bucketful on here !!!

Have a look on the Inbetween Treatment thread on this site and look for ChitterChatters - you will find lots of girls who are waiting for appointments too. Just introduce yourself on there !

Hiya

I used to use this site a lot before/during/just after my tx, but I haven't been on for a while and I'm not quite sure where to go.

We've decided to ttc naturally for a while - I'm desperate for a 2nd bubba but we can't afford the tx & because we already have Tobe (thru tx) we don't qualify for a free cycle (we just missed out on the free one).  Are there any girlies out there in a similar situation?  I'm not sure where to look.

Ttc is such a trying time & it's so good to talk about it with other girlies in my situation.
