New to all of this and a little overwhelmed!

Hello everyone! I am currently 16 days into Buserelin, with my baseline scan on Monday. I have been dipping in and out of forums as things have gone on and I really like seeing stories from people, especially their success stories.... Kind of gives you hope.....

I am new to everything, fertility and forums (!) so am a little overwhelmed by it all (not to mention hormonal!)

Would be lovely to talk to people going through the same thing....

Much love....

Hi Helen,

Welcome to FZ!! I remember when I first started all of this, I was also very overwhelmed by it all. I looked around on the net for forums as I really felt I needed other ladies to speak to, but I never found any like this one. The ladies on here are amazing and always here to chat and offer advice/support, as needed. I'm sure you're going to love it - I know I wouldn't be without it now. It's like another version of Facebook but filled with people who know exactly what you're going through.

I hope you're scan goes well on Monday - sounds like you'll be starting stimms soon! :thumbsup:

Wishing you lots of luck on your journey.
