Hi I am just about to start my secong round of ICSI next week and feeling pretty nervous! Anyone else about to start? First time round all of the nice healthy eggs taken fragmented over nite leaving only one of any use, so hopes were dashed pretty swiftly! Has anyone else ever had that happen before?

hello rach,
sorry to hear about the probs you had with your first icsi attempt. its truly crap when you have pinned so much on it working and then it doesn"t. hpoefully this time round will be a success!
i have just started my 2nd attempt too. currently im down regulating on the suprefact injections. god they give you a headache! . my first attempt ended in a early miscarriage. we  went for our 28 day scan and the sac where the embryo should have been was empty. two years on and we are starting our 2nd funded attempt.
who ever said ivf was an emotional rollercoaster was right!
i wish you loads of luck this time around
take care , claire

Rach,

Hi my names Sally and i am due to start my second ICSI attempt towards the end of August.  We had 5 embryos first time round, had to have AH, but unfortunately got BFN.  Actually I knew before the test, which in some ways was better.  We are unfortunately not funded, so not sure how many attempts we are going to be able to get.

I have already joined the cycle buddies thread for Auguest/September, so maybe meet up with you in there?

Good luck with your attempt!  (and you Clare!)

Hi Claire, That must have been really tough on you, loads of luck for this time round. Our treatment is a bit different this time as we have gone to a different clinic (the last one lost its embyologist and couldn't find a replacement!) and it all seems to be a lot shorter timescale. Starting on injections of suprecur and menopur this week. Flying off on a long weekend at the weekend and i'm a bit nervous about having to take drugs and needles through customs in these scary times but we have phoned the airline and they don't think its a problem. Not looking forward to side effects again, you are right about the headaches, feeling like a beached whale wasn't nice either! Hopefully it will be well worth it for both of us!
Take care, Rachx

are you doin a long or short protocol? i started the menopur yesterday too;
hope you have a lovely weekend where ever you are off to,the weather has got to be better than here!
good luck with your new clinic.

hey sallywags
not bein able to get  funding is a real bummer,this treatment is sooo expensive! im prayin this cycle is the one for us (nhs funded) otherwise i fear the plastic will be feelin the strain.

good luck girls.

Hi Emma
I have got an appointment on monday to discuss treatment plans as it has been nearly 7 months since my last cycle. They are planning on doing a different drug regime with me this time as i am not a very good responder to the drugs (my follicles grow at different times therefore only get a small amount of mature eggs) so hopefully this will work better for me. I didnt have to have this appointment they were quite happy for me to just ring on the first day of my period and go from there, but i like to know exactly what the treatment plan is so i thought it would be a good idea to have a chat with them. Where are you having treatment? I am at midlands fertility clinic in Aldridge Birmingham.
I cant believe that we are about to go through it all again!! Its such a stressfull, but exciting time, fingers crossed third time lucky???
Love Emma Jayne xxxx

Hi Emma Jayne,
Good luck with third time round! I didn't respond very well to the drugs last time either so had no frosties so this time im on stronger stuff. Off for a scan today to see if they have worked or not so quite nervous and excited!
