Feeling very low!! :'(    ( In need of some support!!)
D/H and myself have been trying to conceive for 6 years, 4 months but all to no avail. After too much time waiting to see if anything would happen,and too much time wasted on the NHS waiting list, I eventually had a lap, which told me that I had several small fibroids and a small amount of Endo, all of which we have been assured would not make any difference to our chances of conceiving naturally. Hubby had his share of test's too, showing that he had antibodies attached to his sperm, but they could get round this by washing the sperm!!  Feb 2003 I had 3 unsucessful attempts of IUI, with menopur, on the NHS, was then referred to go privately to have IVF, as they do not offer it on the NHS where we live!!, post code lottery! To bring things up to date, we went privately to the Southampton Fertility Clinic, and had my first attempt at IVF, which was very stressful, I did'nt respond well to the menopur, I was on 4 Amp's a day due to my age (38),
and was told I had 4 eggs but that 2 were not good enough to use, which just left the 2 !! to make things even more distressing on the day of egg recovery I  had an allergic reaction to the  anti- sickness drug that they give you before you go into theatre, and subsequently fainted!!  However they did continue to recover my eggs and had the transfer 2 days later. Then came the  horrible never ending 2 wks wait, although I did'nt make 2 wks, after 10 days my period came I was devastated, It sounds terrible but I just new it had'nt worked!! It is now the middle of march  and I am still very low and not sure whether I can give it another go!!

hiya little

im new here aswell, im sorry u feel as u do, its understandable tho as i have been thru alot, its very painful. i had 2 ivf tmts last yr, my 2nd in october both bfn  :'( i have just had my review and we r going 2 start icsi in april,the money side of things doesnt help either as we r not entitled 2 funding, 2 start with this was because of our postcode so we went it alone then after our 2 tx we fond out they had started funding in our area, we still didnt meet the criteria as we had gone private already and they r only funding people that have had no tmt.  anyway feel free 2 come and chat at any time dont go thru this on ur own.
love lisa xxxx :) :)

Oh Little, you poor thing.
This site is a great place to find support, I think I'd have gone mad without the lovely girls and guys on here.  There is a specialist IVF board as well as an IUI one (I post in the ICSI board) and I'm sure you would be made welcome in either of them.
Where were you before So'ton? (I understand Salisbury  has a good rep and the nurses are friendly - Aunty is in team and Mum worked in 'womens health' too)
I had two goes and didn't think I could ever do it again, but time is a great healer and in May I'll be back on the roller coaster again. 
I hope you find the answers you need.
Lots of love,
LiziBee

Hi Little  ^wave^
I am another Southampton bod although we are going to see Salisbury fertility centre in April as we have lost faith in Wessex, I am sorry that you are feeling so low, but this is only natural, you have to give yourself some time to get over this and you will then see much clearer and be able to decide if you are willing to have another go, you will know in your heart  ^Heart^ so trust your instincts.
If you want to chat then send me a pm
I look forward to seeing you around the boards, ff has been a lifeline to me and I am sure you will gain lots of strength too, I wish you both all the luck in the world
Take Care
Dydie xx
