I and my husband will not be moving directly from egg collection to embryo transfer. In fact, after eggs collection, any suitable embryos will be put in deep freeze until I can get my intramural fibroid sorted. It just feels like we are doing this whole process and stopping at a crucial stage. My biggest fear is that none of any of the embryos will survive defrosting and I have gone through all the hassle of down regulating and stimulating for nothing.
We will be referred to a private fibriod specialist to do an MRI scan on the fibroid and make a 'professional' decision on whether or not the fibroid needs removing. The local NHS has dismissed me as not needing to have the fibroid removed, citing that, seeing as I'm am 44, I am only a few years off menopause, so they don't want to bother(there's that bottom line again)....DESPITE having the hormone levels of someone 10 years younger and more than enough follicles to produce 10+ eggs.....YET another reason why I am disgusted with my local NHS.
I am hugely frustrated and worried and stressed what the implications of success will be, with stopping and starting whole IVF process.
Anyone else had a break between egg collection and embryo transfer?
