Hi Caza congratulations on being PUPO, I think having accupuncture after ET is ok, but i didnt feel comfortable in doing so, so i didnt continue after et, but if your not too sure, ring your cons and he/she can give you the info. wishing you lots of luck on your 2ww

worried about follicles

Hi Tia, sorry little late in replying to your questions, but at a scan stage on day 4 its still a little early to tell, my first scan wasnt until day 6 and i only had 2 on right and 1 on left, and i ended up getting 8, as natz said everyone is different, and stimming times vary from around 10 days to 16 days, i've stimmed differently everytime, dont worry about asking questions this morning, this is what they are there for and have been in the same situation 100's of times, so fire away any ques...

Hi Tia, i think its all depends on where your having your tx, out here in bulgaria, my last attempt i had 3 embies transfered, but i think in the uk all the rules and regulations have changed to having just the one transfered, which i think is wrong, we are paying an awful lot of money for tx and surly it should be down to the individual if they want one or two transfered, but certainly having 2 transfered doesnt double your chances. wishing you lots of luck on your journey

Hi Andrea, sorry to hear about your BFN, keep your chin up All the drugs poking and proding can play havoc with your cycles, so heres hoping a/f will show her ugly head real soon, but any concerns give your cons a quick ring to put your mind at ease.

normal AMH.FSH yet poor response...anyone?

Hi Kar, well as you know my first attempt was cancelled due to poor response,(which was long protocol) and if i'm totally honest, i really dont know what protocol suited me best, i've tried long short, and antagonist, and i think overall they were all pretty much the same, but i think the short protocol i had a few more follies. LOL Dont think i helped much but wishing you lots of luck

** AF after IVF/ICSI - chat & questions **

Hi Jools, with all the medications poking and prodding which has been going on this will play tricks with a/f, after my ivf tx's my a/f has differed in so many ways first time, only small amount of discharge(browny) with no discomfort at all, second time a/f from hell, totally agony and bleed for 16 days, but i spoke with cons and she told me not to panic this can happen after what your body has been through, i was then given the pill for a month to try and sort everything out. If you are at all...

do you always have to 'stop' your natural cycle???

Hi lou lou, i am sorry to hear about your miscarriage, my thoughts are with you. starting on day 21 is classed as long protocal, and starting day1 or day 2 is as the ladies say is short protocal, i have done short and long, but to be totally honest the difference in quantity and quality of embies didnt differ an awful lot, the way i found was what ever protocal my cons suggested at the time i went with, as they say cons knows best lol. Any way, wishing you lots of luck on your journey. keep us u...

Hi Nikki, i am in agreance with Calypso, do what your body tells you, first round of IVF i didnt have the energy or stamina to do anything, but second time round i found i had quite a bit of energy, so it does differ from tx to tx person to person, so do as you feel at the time. Wishing you lots of luck on your journey

Is this the funding approval letter?

Hi there Earth Girl, well if i had the same letter, and with the Quote " your name has been added to the waiting list" I would assume that yes we are approved for funding, but just to clarify give your cons a quick ring, i'm sure he/she will help you in a jiffy. Wishing you lots of luck on your IVF journey
