EC Done!!

Ok so I'm not going to lie, I was terrified and it was awful. The sedation did nothing for me, I was wide awake and aware of everything. Very very uncomfortable and they increased my pain relief and sedation several times but it made no difference :( however it wasn't as bad as I had expected, no sharp pain just A LOT of pressure!!

9 eggs collected so I'm feeling very happy!! Xx

Aw I'm sorry to hear about your sedation experience - that's terrible - worth reviewing with your team in case you need it again ever... Hopefully not though! Fantastic news about your eggs. Thrilled for you x

I'm lying on the sofa but I'm in agony! How much pain is normal after EC?? X

My clinic told me I couldn't use a hot water bottle but unless you were told the same then I'd use one, many do up until transfer. Also take paracetamol x

I was awake too. I didn't find it painful exactly just very uncomfortable at times. It's not nice but it's done now. Be proud 👏🏻
