IUI at Glasgow Royal Infirmary

Hi Everyone. I'm new to the forum but I have been tying for a baby for a good few years now. Before we moved to Scotland We've been tested in Bristol where thay told us we'll have to go through IVF with the waiting list alost 2 years. Now we live in Outer Hebrides and we are treated in Glasgow. So we are starting our IUI bummpy road next month with great hopes. So please share with me your experinces with the IUI treatment and the GRI hospital. Best Wishes
Izabela

RE: IUI at Glasgow Royal Infirmary



I have just started with my nasal spray to down regulate my cycle - just started yesterday. I am getting my treatment at the royal infirmary in Glasgow too. All the nurses have been really nice. What stage are you at?

Izabela,

We had 2 lots of ICSI treatment at GRI and all the staff were lovely.
Whenever I needed advice between appointments, they were always really nice over the phone too.
As you can see from our ticker, we have been blessed with our BFP after all this time of trying for a baby.
So good luck and I really hope everything goes well for your treatment,x

Thank you

thanks - its so reassuring to hear people's positive stories. I know there is the chance that the iui won't work and that in reality I am actually at the start of a journey that will be even longer but it just has to work somewhere down the line. xfingers PMA all the way x x x

Hi Izabela

Im also @ the GRI, im however having IVF treatment and just this week finished my 1st cycle, unfortunately It did'nt work for me.

I have 5 frosties waiting but I need to wait at least 2 months before starting again, so hopefully after crimbo.

Everyone at the ACU/ACS have been great to both myself and DH, waiting for appointments can be a bit of a nightmare as the clinic always seems to be running late as it is always soooooooooo busy.

How are you going to cope with traveling for your appointments?

Hi girls

It's lovely hearing from you all. I am just at the begging of my journey too Scottishgirlie. I'm starting my nasal spray on Tuesday. I also find everyone very nice and helpful; as we live in the Isles my DP has a privilege to book his appointments for the same day as our appointment. We are also very lucky to have a family in Glasgow we can stay with. So it's not all bad and of course it's a perfect excuse for shopping (no shops here).

Jen I'm so sorry that your treatment didn't work out this time round. Keep positive and in a near future you will be holding your little angel.

Lisa, thank you for sharing your story with us it is very reassuring knowing that it is all worth it at the end.

Scottishgirlie are you experiencing any side effect of the spray. I'm working full time with kids and I'm a bit worry that I’ll not be able to cope.

Sending you all lots of baby dust

Hi honey, No symptoms so far apart from being a wee bit tired. I was a wee bit worried to be honest cause I think I was expecting it to work like a jekyll and hyde potion. :angry: :tears: pmsl with mood swings galore but so far nada. How about you. Speaking of nasal spray need to go take my next dose - back in a few. xx

:hi:

I had iui at the royal last year in december and became pregant on my first go in january and now I have beautiful son who was born on 16/08/09 so it can work the first time,

just drink lots of water and milk and that should help, the staff are very good also.

Thanks Esha, reassuring to see that there are some positive outcomes - sometimes it feels like I will never be a mother. Like Izabella I am not sure it will work for us first time. Trying to get a happy balance between feeling positive and not my hopes up.

Hi Stacey and Rene,

Many thank you for your kind responses!! :) Nice to have some support as feeling a little lost right now!! Stacey do you mind me asking how do i access iui chitter chatter or the diaries?

I was mainly wondering just what to expect, i was on clomid as I have PCOS and was not ovulating so I am assuming i will be having a "stimulated cycle" with the fertility drugs/injections. Anyone else been on these and how bad is it going to be?? ?(

We have a long treck for treatment as we are around 90 miles from GRI!! Lots of time off work, but they being very supportive!!

Thanks Girls!
