Feeling deflated

So was meant to start IVF today after numerous set backs. Had a scan which showed a large cyst so was told that they can't do it this cycle and the next cycle the consultant is off for 3 weeks so will have to wait until September. I know it's only a couple more months but I'm so frustrated and upset as I've been waiting so long and my body always lets me down X

  • I feel for you. I had my first clinic appointment in June last year and I'm still waiting for ET. I'm going private which is more annoying and I'm 40 which is worrying.

    I never thought delays would be the biggest thing to contend with. I've had fully booked consultants, my clinic relocating, no response to stims, danger of hyper-stimulation and then progesterone levels too high for transfer.

    I have hope that I'll get there in the end.

    Good luck with your journey. x

  • Thank you for your reply.

    Sorry to hear that, it is so frustrating and disheartening isn't it, and so hard to be patient when you've been waiting so long.

    I really hope you get there and don't have to wait too much longer. Good luck X

  • I can understand your feeling as I went to Ukraine to start a surrogacy program. We had to wait for years doing ivfs to get pregnant and them for 2.5 months to find a surrogate mom. And it wasn’t even in our country, we have travelled the globe to go there, I know it may sound horrible but fortunately.. the clinic we chose helped us on our way to become parents. And now after all those years we are happy parents to a baby girl! I felt all range of emotions and can understand your frustration but in the end our dream came true! Good luck to you!

  • Hi Chloe thank you for your reply. It's so good to hear your success and gives me hope for the future.

    It just feels like every time we get somewhere there's something that gets in the way and the goal post gets moved further and further away.

    Hopefully it will all be worth it in the end x

  • Of course it'll be worth when you achieve your dream! I am sure! xx

  • It's so frustrating when treatment to has to be delayed, even when we know it's for a valid reason. Unfortunately it's often part if the journey. For me it was another thing I had no control over in the process and there's nothing you can do to make the cyst go except follow the advice. It's good to get it out on this forum.

    I hope that there are no further delays and you can start again in September.
