Hello I'm from N.Ireland

Hi ladies I'm new to this site. Hubby (34) me (35) TTC #1 for 3 & a half years. Diagnosed unexplained infertility. We are on our first IVF cycle at RFC Belfast. Im DR with suprecur nasal sprays. Have been since 7th Dec & don't start stims till 9th Jan. I hear everyone talking about baseline scans but I was told by RFC that as long as AF arrived when it should (and it did) to begin stims on 9th Jan & I don't get scanned till 14th Jan. is this normal? So far just a bit sweaty in it & had a couple of days where I was like a loon temperament wise lol. Aside from that feeling ok. It will be great to talk to some other ladies that are possibly from NI too & are at the same stage as me. Looking forward to support & supporting on this crazy journey :) baby dust to u all ladies & thanks for reading xx

Hey Erin thanks a mill for the welcome & I will def join the dec dotties thread :)

Hey Z001 I replied to your post on the newbies page huni....if I can give you any help/advice at all please feel free to ask anything. From your first consultation it should be around 7 months till you get your letter of offer of treatment from RFC. They make you attend about 3 really short appointments in the Grove Wellbeing centre (our consultant is Dr McFaul) n check your BMI, give you an internal scan & get you to sign all the forms then your letter if offer should arrive and after that you will have a screening app at RFC, followed about a week later by your PTC where they plan your treatment & give you your drugs & explain how to use them. They gave me a nasal spray that I take 4 times a day to down regulate & then I start the stim injections on 9th Jan. we are unexplained primary infertility. If you have any other questions or just want a chat I'm here. :)
