AF not playing!!!

I am waiting to request treatment for my 2nd cycle and AF has not appeared. I am usually spot on 28 days and typical the one time I want my period and its late. So frustrating..............

Hi Button - I was exactly the same when mine was late before starting my first cycle... 4 days late. Always 28 days until the one time I actually needed it. TYPICAL! The nurses were great though, they're used to it I suppose but it has pushed my EC back to the 23rd May instead of the 16th. I hope AF comes along for you soon... ignore anyone who tells you to relax... it's just not possible!! haha x

Ha ha very true I can't relax!! My clinic run slightly different you have to phone on 1st day of period and request treatment then they phone you back later that day to say if they will take you this month, they don't give you any dates for egg collection, last time I had two days notice it's very hard to plan around this way but don't have a choice. Hope your cycle is going ok xxx

Typical! When you want it to come it doesn't.

Hopefully it'll arrive soon and you can get started.

Good luck button .. have u started injections ? I've got about 8 to 10 days before I'm due on and can start x I'm more nervous this time but least I know what to expect x last time in nhs and then we have to start paying ourselves ! Which is scary !

Hi I did finally come on and I have my base line scan and bloods this morning then the injections start again. I do feel excited and ready to go, but the fear is much stronger this time. This is also our last NHS go before we go private and pay 😁

Fingers crossed for us.  I have much more complicated meds this time as well ! half the dose and then last few days 2 lots of gonal f and then include menopur - going to be a bit complicated so my head is spinning and my fridge is full !! a friend of a friend just had their second round and is now pregnant with twins so I have hope! although I do think they messed my first round up and probably should have abandoned that cycle as I only stimmed for 6 days - just wasn't enough and my 16 eggs hadn't matured - it doesn't seem right so will see how I go this time but I may end up complaining about it - we will see !

Oooo fingers crossed, I am a poor responder only got 2 eggs on max drugs last night. If this round doesn't work we will be user donor eggs. I have been taking dhea so hoping I get a better response this time X
