** HCG LEVEL QUESTIONS **

Hi Louis, mine were about 50 (you can see my worried post earlier in the thread) and my HPT's were really light for ages. I am now nearly 34 weeks pregnant and everything seems fine. Hang in there, I know it's really tough but as everyone says the one level doesn't mean a whole lot, hopefully you will see a nice rise on Monday, your level is well within normal for 15dpo as flic has said. Will be keeping everything crossed for you. x

Antibodies attacking sperm!!

Hi Joa, My husband also has anti-sperm antibodies, your chances of conceiving naturally are linked to the % binding and also it seems to whereabouts on the sperm they are binding. I did quite a lot of reading around the subject and am happy to try and help with any questions if you wanted to ask anything specificly or feel free to pm me

please help with HCG levels

I wondered if anyone could help with infor or advice. I hd a blood test 14 day post ER and a positive result with a value of 52.93. The clinic told me this was low and they want to see over 100 I've seen the "average" HCg levels chart above which suggests 52 is about right so i'm rather upset and confused. Could anyone let me know what they think about this or how it compares with others values please I haven't even posted on the BFP board yet because i'm worried i'm jumping the gun TIA xx

SPOTTING QUESTIONS

Hi Lynsey, thanks for the reply, I think the blood is fresh, it's not very much so probably nothing to worry about but you know how we analyse all these things during treatment and I was just a bit concerned... x

spotting on stims

apologies in advance if there is TMI in this post, I am on day 8 of stimms and today have seen loads of EWCM which is tinged pink with blood... firstly I wasn't sure if you get EWCM whilst undergoing the IVF protocol and secondly I was concerned about the blood in it, it's only tinged, not bleeding but wondered if anyone else had any experience or advice regarding this.. or maybe if I should phone my clinic? Thanks ladies. x

general anastheitc vs sedation?

Hi Ladies, I have had one round of ICSI and am about to start the second. We have swapped clinics and my new clinic gives a general anasthetic for the EC, last time I only had sedation (and didn't feel or remember a thing) The clinic has said they will let me just have sedation if i'd prefer, so my question is what experiences do you ladies have of either and would you advise one or the other... TIA!! xx

NHS East of England - 6 Free attempts!

thanks ladies for your responses. For some reason Leicester is one of the clinics you can choose through these east of england rules, but you are right that your referral has to come from a east of england GP... we may be moving to Cambs which is why I asked, but were told that the inital referal had to be before Nov 08.. I also think it's BS.. can't see that in their documents.. so it helps to know Billie that you were entitled despite starting treatment in 06. I wish you all loads of luck. xx

NHS East of England - 6 Free attempts!

Maria, I just wondered if you know if there is a dependancy on when you were first referred ? We were told by a clinic that as we were referred for our first (failed) treatment before November 2008 we wouldn't be eligable...( we miss out by 9 days...)

1st FET please help explain!

Hi, We are in the process of waiting for our first FET after a failed ICSI attempt, the clinic hasn't really given us any information except to wait for next period then phone in. Can anyone tell me a bit about the processes involved, both for natural and medicated cycles.. I'm picking up that on medicated you end up D/r for quite a while.. I was surprised by this.. My cycles are regular so am leaning towards a natural cycle.. If anyone could let me know a bit about the natural and medicated cyc...

possible sign of cyst? what will they do?

Hi Ladies, I was hoping someone could help me out with some advice. I have DR for 4 days now; this morning when DH and I I had a sharp stabbing pain just to the right (about where my ovary would be) this is now just a dull ache... could this be the sign of cysts? Does anyone know what the clinics tend to do in the case of cyst development.. i.e can my treatment continue or anre they likely to stop it. TIA..

My story....

Hi Nat. It is soooo frustrating being labelled "unexplained" we were for two years and it was only at our IUI appointment when DH had a different test known as the "swim up" test that they found out he had anti-sperm antibodies.. these were totally undetected in the normal SA; I'm not sure how common they are but it might be a test to ask for? It's good that your appointment is at least not to far away.. I was also surprised they are saying to go straight for IVF but I guess it's a good thing if...

timings of ICSI stages

Hi, I wondered if anyone could help me? We have been referred for ICSI and my downregs are due to start next Wednesday (day23 of my cycle). I cannot understand the timings chart I have been given and have a few questions.. Firstly, does the medication (Suprecur) alter when you expect your period to arrive? Secondly, when my period arrives I've been told to phone the clinic, and arrange a scan, does anyone know if this happens a few days after the start of my period or on the day, they then seem ...

RE: question regarding ASA

Hi Paul, Thanks for getting back to us and for the information, we will certainly ask our clinic about the sperm/mucus hostility test though this has never been offered to us. Is there anything in the meantime that you would recommend that we could take in terms of vitamins etc to help with this? (I am on prenatals) Being a scientist myself I have done a lot of reading on this and have become quite interested in the subject... Thanks again for your time and for responding, it's really useful in ...
