I posted earlier re complications my body was throwing up. Well I got to have the egg collection on Wednesday which has again thrown up issues!
They only managed to get 2 eggs. No follicles in my right ovary were any good and distorted. So they had to try my left ovary which they knew had very limited access due to its position, being adherent to the uterus. It was apparantly very tricky but it was from this ovary that the 2 eggs came from. Being still groggy from the sedation I vaguely remember a possible scan being needed and was sent home with 2 lots of antibiotics. Also ICSI was going to be used due to the low egg number for best chances.
Yesterday got the call from the embryologist to say both eggs had matured and fertilised so if continued doing well the transfer would be either Saturday or Monday. Yipee I felt, although not looking forward to having go through sedation and another procedure again, so close to the last. (Having to be sedated for it due to issues with my uterus and the neck of it). But so pleased that things were for once going to plan.
HOWEVER, a couple of hours later I had a call from the consultant to say she had taken pics of my right ovary and there is something causing her concern. Which could be an ovarian cyst, something to do with my endometriosis or something more nasty: tumour/cancer! So I need to have a blood test for tumour markers and a scan in 6 weeks to see if right ovary the same, or changed for the better or worse. Therefore she informed me that this IVF cycle would be CANCELLED! The embryo's will be frozen so when can try again we can use them instead of trying to stimulate follicles again. She did not want to do the transfer, it be successful but then the scan in 6 weeks means the pregnancy is at risk or needs terminating. Of course having this news after the good news earlier I burst into uncontrolable sobbing!
I know that they are doing this for the best. It a shame because I have been told my fresh embryo's are doing really well and I know that frozen embryo's decrease the odds of pregnancy. It would have been nice to use the fresh ones.
I cannot fault the clinic and the staff as they have been fab throughout the IVF process and always keep me updated.
I am so upset, angry, frustrated, depressed. That yet again my body is not being straight forward and is interfering with my life still!
Sorry for the long post! Thank you for reading my rant/offloading. Please do not let it scare you as what has occurred is quite rare and everyone is an individual.
Wishing you all well with your journey x x
