Hormonal battle Round 2.... Bring it on!

I am doing Ivf from the Middle East, this blog has been my inspiration, my source of info and my IVF buddy so to speak from afar so thank you to the lovely ladies on here...I feel your pain but also hear your laughter and resilience which fuels mine too! I was one of only 4 ladies undertaking Ivf at the one and only clinic, none of us spoke the same language, so as you can imagine having the virtual support and knowledge from this blog has been a god send! i had a negative first result, which I was gutted about but am recovered and ready to attack hormonal battle round 2!! Got my lucky pants on as if I can't laugh myself through this process I know for sure I will cry at some point!! Wish me luck xx

  • I am about to start ICSI in the UAE. There seems to be a very relaxed attitude to it all here.

  • Yes it's very relaxed where I am too, I learnt so much from this site and ask so many questions such as grade of my eggs and got a blank response of they are good or we wouldn't of put them back in?!?!

  • Good luck Camelkarma and to all ladies. My family not live in UK and I know its so hard when you are abroad specially no one near from your family to share ups and down. I'm so thankful that I find this blog and share my emotions. We are waiting our protocols to sign and hoping to start ICSI by June.

    I'm sending a great big hug to all ladies :)


  • What kind words Essi, good luck to you too, this blog definitely becomes your surrogate family xx
