Hi - just noticed this thread!

We had our ICSI treatment here in March 2008 and got our miracle baby boy after the first attempt. The staff were all really great. We are saving up for round 2 and hope to start treatment this year.

Good luck to all of you ladies who are having treatment there xxx

ICSI timings??

Hi Classybird,

Many congratulations - you must be delighted. What a fabulous belated christmas gift!

We are going to the waiting list clinic on the 8th April where we'll be told our TX timetable. I'm so excited, but worried. I work away a lot and I'm concerned I'll meant to be somewhere else when I need to be here.

Obviously (!!!..) I'll be re-arranging but I wondered if you could give me a guide as to timings?

Ive read DR can be anywhere from a week to 8, but wondered what the norm was? If I can try and re-arrange my diary now it will hopefully make things less stressful when tx starts..

Thanks a million,

pennyqueen x

help

I am so lost in all of this... we just found out they are going to refer us to the centre. Im just shocked... Soon after we found out the news of his abnormal sperm, my husband has started taking supplements. I think its hard to accept because neither of us drink, or smoke. we eat all organic... we are healthy. Ok, like I said before, im pretty lost. We had two tests done and the second came back worste. The lab lost my day 21 test, so im having to take it over again next week. The dr said that she will send the referal after those results come back, so we are praying that everything will be ok. I just want some answers... Like, how much does treatment cost, how long do you have to wait for treatment, do they do IUI... (which i dont think we qualify for as his results were 8% progressive, 18% rapid progressive...I dont really know what that means). Can someone help me. Im trying to have hope and faith in the Lord...but at times its hard, especially when you are asked when you are going to have babies. I guess it jost comes and goes in waves. Any information would be very helpful...
Thank You
Jackie

I rang them, but they said I would have to wait until my initial consultation to find out more information regarding time scales, procedures, etc. I guess Im learning patients. I found out about another supplement... DH is going to buy it today and start on them.

Hi Jackie,

We were also transfered to the CFL fo rthe same thing. Waiting time for the referal to the CFL was about 4 weeks. We were lucky in that all our tests have been done so having met the consultant and discussed treatment we ready to start.

We're going back on the 8/4 to what they call the waiting list clinic to get a treatment timetable and hopefully start!! It's really excisting but scary at the same time. This site is fab and I learn a little bit each time I come on, but like you I still have lots of questions..

I hope you're wait is a short one and you can begin the naxt stage of your journey soon xx

Thats great! Let me know what the timetable is for you. Are they doing ICSI or IUI? Is it going to cost much. Still a bit confused...but excited as my bloods were taken today and next step is initial appointment!

Hi Jackie,

Were having ICSI so I'll keep you posted.
Cost wise - we are entitled to three attempts on the NHS - I guess if you fall into their categories you will be entitled to the same but I'm sure you'll be given more information at your appt.

Its all a waiting game, which is exciting but very frustrating all at the same time. Keep smiling, with your bloods your a step closer to starting txt xx

Hi Pennyqueen...
I think we qualify...atleast thats what are gp said. we have already have all the tests done at the gp... she didnt want to send the referal until they were all complete. Im very nervous as well. Did they offer you IUI, or did they fast track you to ICSI? I guess I just want our initial appointment so I can ask all the questions my GP didnt know how to answer.

Hi Jackie,

Having been through it I can understand how frustrating the wait is. The good news is the waiting list at the CFL is very short. Due to DH male factor we need ICSI - IUI was not an option for us.

Having first gone to our doctor in November, I am due to start treatment on the 11th May and that included being transferred from one clinic to another so hopefully you wont have too long to wait once you've had your initial consultatuion. Its quite scary now I have all the medications, but so exciting at the same time...

Please feel free to ask any questions and I'll help all i can x

Thanks again Pennyqueen...

Well, my day 21 test turned out ok. We noe have a scheduled initial consultation at the cfl on May 5th. I am very excited and can't believe how fast it is moving. I guess God is granting me the all needed patience :D. After we see the time table, we are going to book a holiday. We are still praying for a natural miracle. I am hoping they let us do IUI. They didn't let you? I am really wanting to do that first. With DHs first sperm analysis they said it was an option...but the second results were worst that they said it wasn't. Do they retest the sperm again when you are there? I guess I will find out more on the 5th. I'm really excited for you. Keep me posted...

Thanks Jackie, the 5th will soon be here!!
Yes DH had to give another SA. We had hoped we could do IUI but the second & third result ruled it out.

You'll probably meet the head consultant on your first visit, she goes through the planned treatment and explains everything including any extra tests you may need, but it sounds as if thats all been covered. We then waited for the next appt where they take you through your treatment time table - that was only a few weeks too, so things do move remarkably quickly.

I now have my drugs, and start on the 11 May, but have one last attempt at a miracle before then so keep your fingers crossed just in case!

Good luck in the meantime, a holiday away from day to day stresses sounds lovely, you never know. Either way the 5th will soon be here, take care x

Hi Laura.

Welcome to FZ - you will find this site amazingly supportive.

We were also transfered to the CFL for treatment - the referal appointment took about 4 weeks, but we were lucky as all of our tests had been done. Your first appt is with the head consultant who discusses treatment options etc and arranges for you to be added to the waiting list clinic - as they call it!

It was about another four weeks for this appointment where they go through the treatment plan again, and then discuss timescales. We were there on the 8th April and I'm meant to start on the 11th May so it all happens fairly quickly once things start moving.

It's really exciting but scary at the same time. I hope you're wait is a short one and you can begin the naxt stage of your journey soon xx

Ah thats sounds positive as on some of the other posts it seems people have waited like over 2 years to get in the clinic so fingers crossed i will hear something very soon. So do you get a letter or something to advise your appointment.

Hi Laura...
I actually got into the clinic right away. Our appointment was scheduled for today...but we dont need to go because we got a miracle! We are 7 weeks pregnant!!! I just wanted to give you a bit of food for thought... my husband took loads of supplements for 2 months. The doctor thinks that may have been the cause of us getting pregnant. They were sellinium, royal jelly, grapeseed extract, zinc, vitamin c, vitamin e, and b. Just thought you might try those while your waiting. xx

Hi girls

Not kept up to date with this thread and there have been quite a few postings since my last visit!

Congratulations Jackie - that is wonderful news xxx

Pennyqueen - good luck with your treatment, hope it is going well.

As far as the timings are concerned - we initially were going to wait for NHS treatment but then decided to go private as there was a 2 year waiting list and they let me put it on my credit card :D.

We had the information session at the start of March and to give you all an idea the timings were as follows:

Down regging (sniffing syranel) for 23 days
Internal scan and blood tests next day
Start injections next day (& continue sniffing)
Scan 9 days later
San 3 days later
Egg collection 3 days later
Embryos transfered 2 days later
12 days later HCG test xfingers

Also worth mentioning that although we went private our GP agreed to fund the drugs for us! So if you take the private prescription from the clinic to your GP they may fund some/all of the drugs for you.

Hello everyone.
I wrote this post last time we were due to begin our treatment then my poor Hubbie was made redundant so we had to postpone for a year. The Life Centre was really nice about it and so here we are again one year on.
I start the Synarel sprays on Sat! We are very excited. I have read all your posts above and they are very informative!

Icsi Centre for Life

Hi there,
I'm quite new to this so forgive me if this doesnt read well.......

I have just been referred to CfL for ICSI by my GP, although I have to pay privately due to partner already having children.

Anyone got any ideas on time scales for appointments etc.

I was only referred 2 weeks ago, but we have waited so long for this that I am very impatient.

Thanks if anyone can help xxx

Hi fitnessgirl :D

We went to our GP at the start of April to ask for a private referral and our consultancy appointment letter has just come through for 18th June so for us it will have taken aprox 6 weeks from going to the GP and the 1st appointment at CFL. When you get the letter you need to ring them to confirm the appointment and sort out payment for the initial consultation. I phoned up last week to ask if they had any idea how long it would be until we could start the actual treatment and the lady said that it would probably be September as ICSI has a longer wait than IVF. I suppose it depends on the type of protocol you are on etc.

The private clinic is run on a Thursday and as pennyqueen says you will be seen by the head consultant who will go through everything and give you various forms/leaflets regarding the treatment. From what I remember when we went last year they did an internal scan during out first appointment. Also before you start the treatment you can go in for a demo on how to do the injections etc !

Good luck with your treatment xxx

Hello.

I started this thread and I didn't even know there was all these comments! I am not the sharpest tool when it comes to the internet. :duh:

The Synarel sniffing went fine and I thought that's how it would always be.
I am on my fourth day of menopur injections now and feel dreadful. bigcloud

If I didn't want a baby so much I would just quit now. I have had terrible heart flutters and dizziness since I started the injections and spent a canny 2 and a half hours in casualty having an ECG, physical, bloods you name it. They think it must just be a side effect but as everyone is different they don't know what to suggest.

How is everyone else getting on?

Hi Gemsie

Sounds like you've been having an ordeal with the side effects - hope the pain has eased. It can't be that long for you until egg collection? Let us know how you get on.

I had my consultation on Thursday and we are going to do ICSI again. We were there a while as they did an internal scan and blood test. DH has to go back and do a "sample" in the next couple of weeks. We have been given our treatment timetable and I start sniffing 4th August so am pleased that I have some proper dates now. I ended up with OHSS last time, spent a night in hospital on a drip the night after embryo transfer as got so dehydrated so this time they are reducing the powder ampoules to start off with from 3 to 2 and then maybe increase the dose later on. Fingers crossed that the GP will agree to fund the drugs xfingers

Anyone else having treatment at Centre at Life at the moment?

Hi everyone,

I'm currently 1 year through the 3 year waiting list for IVF with donor eggs at CfL. It's great to hear so many people saying how nice the staff are. They seemed really lovely on our first visit a year ago.

Does anyone know where CfL stand on the number of cycles on the NHS at the moment? It was 2 when we were put on the waiting list, but has this gone up to the recommended 3 now?

Thanks

Hi Lisa,

As far as I know CFL provide 3 funded NHS Cycles - I'm guessing that would be the same for donor eggs but to be honest I dont know.

I think it has only recently changed, as origionally we were told we would be entitled to two tries, but during our first txt there was mention of three. I've got everything crossed thats right!

I hope your wait goes by quickly - best of luck x

I know this is an old thread but wanted to put a recent reply on for any North East ladies.

I'm at the CfL too and i agree with everyone else - they are EXCELLENT!

We're going through our first IVF (currently in 2WW) and it is defo 3 cycles you get (provided you meet the criteria). You also get funded for freezing embryos and if you use your frozen embryos your still entitled to your 3 'fresh' cycles - so really you could have loads of attempts as long as you've got frozen.

We also had to only wait 7 weeks to start IVF which i was soo shocked at - was expecting years of waiting.

Good luck with any treatment your having

if you've not started any treatment yet i'm guessing they'll try you on clomid first then maybe injections before trying IVF but i guess it all depends on your infertility factor.

We were referred to CFL and did 3 cycles of clomid which didnt work so they moved us onto injections straight away. did 3 cycles of them and because they didnt work they moved us onto IVF. i was expecting years of waiting but it was only a 7 week waiting list! We started in July so that waiting time will probably still be roughly the same.

The CFL are excellent so dont feel like a failure - i know its hard not to but you'll be amazed how many people go through the same thing, i didnt realise and it really made me feel better that i wasnt alone.

i wish you the very best of luck and if you have any questions about the CFL or anything just contact me. :D

hiya emma
thanks for your reply i really appreciate it... i asked the doc in cfl if they can prescribe me with clomid and they said there is no need for that as i am ovulating on a regular basis, i have got the fillopian tubes tested and still waiting to hear back from the centre, although the nurses at rvi said everything is fine and in the right direction i would love to try clomid as ive heard 30% or maybes more woment get preg with in the 2months of takin clomid....
life is sooo stressful at the moment.....until a miricle happens and i get PREGNANT!!

sounds like they're right. Clomid is used to induce ovulation for women that dont ovulate every month. If your ovulating each month thats one of the biggest hurdles! Dont set your heart on clomid as i dont think you need it and from personal experience it didnt work. Let me know what treatment they put you on and keep your hopes up.. it might be a longer journey than you imagined when you first though lets have a baby but the CFL will do everything they can for you..

Does anyone know what the procedure is at the Centre For Life for the big test, I go next Tuesday (presumable for blood test as they asked me to go anytime between 8am and 10am).
If its a blood test when will I get the results.

Any info would help, thanks :-)

If its a blood test yeah you go between 8 and 10 (i'd advise earlier the better or you can end up sitting around for a long time!). You are asked to call back after 4pm normally for your results but it depends what they are testing for - if your meaning big test ie preg test then yeah you'll know once you get through on the phone!

good luck

Hi, we're starting 3rd ICSi tx in Feb at CFL. Just wanted to add that the staff have been brilliant. They really put your mind at ease. I also like that it really doesn't look or feel like a hospital.
Good luck to everyone. xxx

IVF at centre for life

Hi,



I'm new to this forum (and forums in general) so goodness knows whether anyone is still, or knows of anyone, who is waiting to/is recieving treatment at CFL? I know this post is a bit old, so not sure whether anyone will get in touch, but it'll probly just be nice to get stuff off my chest. Me and hubby been ttc #1 for about 5 years now, and have appointment at CFL tomorrow. We've had the tests done, and hubbie's had about 3 SAs, two of which were fine, and one was borderline. I've got PCOS, and have managed to reduce weight and BMI; so periods have been better and more regualar-and after blood tests etc. apparently i am ovulating-but still no joy! Am having accupuncture and taking herbs, along with both of us taking vitamin supplements/folic acid/zinc etc.

i'm just wondering what will happen tomorrow? last time we saw consultant, she said IVF is next stage (have tried clomid, didn't work). We've accepted that this is what we've got to do now, so am sooo excited, as well as a bit apprehensive. I've heard that the staff are fantastic through the whole process, so that's reassuring. Anyone any idea as to how long it'll be before treatment proper begins? Anyone in the same boat, would love to hear from you! :P

good luck to everyone out there,

Ash xx

Hi Ash

I'm in exactly the same boat as you :smile: I'm new to these formums, or any kind of forum for that matter. I've posted a couple of things and had lovely messages in return. But I'm probably not using the forum to its full advantage.

Me and my partner of 12 years have been ttc for about 4 years now. Been messed around since I was a teenager (I'm 34 now) with regards to my periods etc. Noone really wanted to figure out what the problem was. Very sad and long story.

Anyway, we were told on Dec that my tubes are blocked and I have PCOS...oh and a wonky womb so we've not be practising the best position if you know what I mean :snigger: So, we have our first apt at the CFL on Monday. No idea what to expect. No idea if we're on the waiting list yet, or will be after Mondays apt. The unknown drives me mental on a regualr basis. Not to mention the Chlomid which nearly pushed me over the edge - how did you find it?

Hope to speak soon
