I think I coped OK with my first IVF cycle although I was anxious throughout it, but I have been depressed in the past and needed antidepressants and was terrified it would send me back to that place. Now, after it has failed I am noticing all the signs of depression creeping in. I am crying a lot and find it hard to feel positive about anything. I am dreading going back to work on Wednesday. I just feel my chances of ever having a child are slipping away and I've been very ill over the last couple of years with bowel surgery and complications so it's been a struggle to get through all that. I feel IVF on top of this is just sending me over the edge. I've tried to make a GP appointment, but can't get one until next Wednesday. I don't know whether to ask to go back onto antidepressants to get through this or if I will just start to feel better by myself. I know it's not a great idea to be on them if you are going to get pregnant, but right now I figure that's so unlikely anyway. I'm just sick of it all and need some support to keep going. Any thoughts or advice girls?
