I’ve been reading everyone’s comments to help me through our IVF journey, and felt I should share mine. 1st cycle on privately funded IVF cycle - we only retrieved 5 eggs, of which 2 were suitable for transfer. I’ve my blood test tomorrow morning and I’ve started my period today. I phoned the nurse at the clinic, and just got commiserations. Feeling very low - and know we’ll have to wait over Christmas as the clinic is shut. Good luck to everyone else - I wouldn’t wish this pain on anyone.
