1st ivf starting injections tomorrow!!!

am new to this site but I am hoping talking to others well help me as I start my first IVF cycle. I Start taking tablets on Tuesday but since the appointment I feel like I have forgotten what the nurse told me. We have been funded by the nhs and get get 1 Ivf I've already had 3 iui treatments and this didn't work I'm worried that Ivf isn't going to work for us as well .

Would really appreciate hearing other people's experiences and success story's or any advise of what to do and not to do would be great x

Hi, Fordelee17

I am also new to this forum and have just started my first IVF/ICSI cycle. I am currently taking Norethisterone so haven't started injections yet. I know what you mean about feeling you have forgotten everything the nurse told you i am worried about that as well.

Due to this being my first cycle i cannot offer much advise i'm afraid but i am really interested to hear what others may post as i am also after all the advise i can get.

Good luck with everything and i have everything crossed for you.

Hi Tracey

Thanks for the reply, I couldn't wait to get to this point and now I think I'm more nervous then before I just want to do everything I can to make sure it goes as well as it can. I'm starting on buserelin, have you suffered with any side effects? I hope everything is going well for you so far?

Good luck with your treatment xx


Hi Fordelee,

I know exactly what you mean. It has taken us three years to get to this point and whilst i'm really excited i'm really worried about doing something wrong. My injections were delivered today and i'm even worried that the fridge is at the wrong temperature and this will cause it not to work.

I haven't had many side effects from the Norethisterone other than sore boobs and a few dizzy spells and really tired but thats no different for me. However, i have had to stop taking medication for my arthritis so in a lot more pain as a result. I just want the next few weeks to fly by and at the end of it have the result i want. Feeling impatient already. God knows what i'll be like on 2ww.

How are you getting on? Hope you are doing ok and not experiencing too many side effects.

Big hugs x
