Just a quick first post from me, I've been lurking for a little while and thought I'd sign up and do a quick post. Hubby and I have been TTC for 2 years, been through months of NHS appointments to figure it all out, and have just been referred for IVF. My right Fallopian tube is blocked with hydrosalpinx, which is causing toxic fluid to kill off everything, and is possibly leaking into the uterus causing eggs/embryos from my left side to terminate too. I say possibly because while our first doctor made it pretty clear that this was definitely occurring, the next doctor disagreed. So not 100% clear on our diagnosis, but was told that before IVF that'll be checked and operated on if necessary.
Anyway, IVF is due to start in a few weeks, and honestly I'm really nervous about it! Have chosen a clinic that treats using a method called "mild IVF", which is far more natural and less invasive. Success rate is really good, especially as I've not yet hit my 30s. Im nervous though as my borough only provides 1 free cycle on the NHS, and we just can't afford to self fund any ongoing cycles at this point. So I've recently gone fitness and health crazy in a bid to get my body exactly where it needs to be for best chances. It's stressing me out!
Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading your stories and having people to journey with through these bumps in the road.
Any advice for surviving IVF is welcomed by the way!
