I'm a 34 yr old woman who's been trying for 2 yrs. I had a miscarriage in January 2016 and haven't fallen pregnant since. After all the normal fertility tests (which were all fine) I had an HSG test 2 weeks ago that excruciatingly painful and took a week to recover which really shocked me. It also revealed only one tube working so we're now looking at having IVF as it seems to be our best option. I wondered what the IVF process is and if it's painful for the egg collection and transfer? Also do the drugs make you ill and how many scans/days off do you need? Also please can someone advise/help as right now I am really scared about being able to handle any pain but want to prepare myself so I know what I am going to be dealing with!
