Hi. Am on my first cycle of IVF. I had 3 cycles of IUI which were unsuccessful and because of my age(39) I get 3 goes at IVF. It's all a bit scary! I've been injecting as per and go for a scan on Wednesday and Friday and here's hoping they will harvest my eggs sometime next week. I am REALLY scared about this proceedure. I'm under Barts. Is anybody else out there under them? I'd love to know your experiences...

I must admit I wasn't sure if it was a good idea to go onto a site like this as you read so many negative things, but I am so happy to see that there are so many positive stories as well.

Wish me luck, and GOOD LUCK to all of you!

Hey welcome to FZ.... It took me a while to take the plunge and register for this site... Sooo glad I did tho, I think I would be mentally insane without it now. I gain so much on here. every one is so supportive and its nice to chat to people that actually feel what your going through, as they have done it or are doing it.
Mr C said it all in his last line.... It's certainly a roller coaster! So buckle up and enjoy the ride.
I've just started injecting. I'm currently on day 3 and this is my first attempt at IVF and i have two chances on the NHS.
You'll soon feel at home here xx
