Hi there. Thought I'd sign up to this to get some support and advice from others in the same boat and also share our experiences. I don't really know what I'm doing on here yet so please bear with me! We have had one failed cycle of Ivf in early June and in the next couple of months will be doing a frozen embryo transfer with our only remaining frozen blastocyst.
I'm 34 and husband 35. Our issue is male factor. My husband has azoospermia due to a missing vas deferens . He had a TESE to retrieve sperm earlier this year. We then had to wait several months before I could start on the meds. Our first cycle went really well and I responded well to the drugs and got 10 mature eggs. We ended up with two excellent 5 day blastocysts and were really positive. Unfortunately on test day we got a BFN and my period started a few days later. We were devastated and I kept thinking what did I do wrong. My husband is also really struggling as he thinks he is a failure and hates the fact he is putting me through all this. I am doing my best to tell him it's not his fault etc and we just have to do things the hard way etc but it's been very hard. We have been offered 5 sessions of counselling through our clinic but he wants to wait to see what happens with the FET cycle.
We have our nurse planning appt for the FET on 23 August so will find out then when it'll all start again. Just really praying it works as it's our last shot on the NHS and not sure how long it would take to save up for another full cycle. So frustrated with how long it all takes on the NHS its taken nearly 3 years to get here. I'm trying to eat healthily and have started doing more exercise recently which I've found has helped de stress me a bit!
Looking forward to reading the posts here 😊
