2nd round of IVF - Abroad or Home? Help/advice needed!

I second to seaside, we went to prague for our second treatment and got pregnant. Did the blood and scan at home and they delivered the drugs to you and you start on them then fly over for embryo transfer. All sounded so scary but i found whole process so much easier doing it abroad than at home! Good luck x

NEWBIE - I hate the way this makes me feel and the person it has made me!

Hi laus04, didnt want to read and run... thought I pop in and say hello. I echo what everyone says here... I was very angry and teary in each appointment so having this treatment is stressful! But I recommend try keep it down a bit in order for yourself to accept this, be postitive and fingers cross for treatment to work. Stress and treatment dont work very well together so you need to be calm as possible! I went to see sharon campbell in belfast who does fertility acupuncture. Expensive yes she...

Fertility drugs elsewhere in NI

Hi loulou, you can get the meds from boots in Sprucefield near lisburn and as well as sainsburys ballymena pharmacy. Phoned them up and asked for quotes. For me, I found sainsburys cheaper and you'll need prescription from yr fertility doc otherwise they wont proceed without it. Good luck

You could always leave the gel at room temperature to stop them clogging up. If its still doing it, give nurse wee ring and she'll advise you if your still concern. No we dont know the sex of our baby, as its our first baby we want it to be suprise ive managed to persuade my hubby so thankfully we're on same page lol Xx

I went in boots to get quote and phoned ballymena sainsburys.....the price of drugs in sainsburys were cheaper than boots. You deffo need to get prescription off your doctor in gcrm...

Hi clucky Sounds like your well pepared for this treatment! im sure whatever your doing is fine go along what you think its best.

I drank lots of water and had pint of milk every evening along with dinner. ...
