2nd Round of ICSI - Starting Soon

Hey Ladies,

As the title suggests we are going to be starting our 2nd round soon. This time we are on a short protocol, so I've got to call when my pesky period shows up and then go for a scan and hopefully all being well straight in with injections.

Anyone else had this protocol that can advise what their experience was?

Or anyone due to start soon that will be cycle buddies? xx

i am due to start and also have to do the same as you will ring and have a scan. Do you know if it is an internal scan?

hate the thought of having that when AF arrives :-( xx

They’re always trasvaginal scans aka internal. Don’t worry though because they’ve seen it all before xx

That's true! I am getting used to these internals but not keen on AF being present at the same time but like Tugs says they've seen it all before so just have to get on with it haha x

I presume it is internal like normal but likewise not really looking forward to that one haha!

When is your AF due? Mine is technically late (not pregnant - more chance of pigs flying haha!) and they have now given me some medication to help bring it on so hopefully it wont be too much longer until we get going again xx

unfortunately they could not fit me in when i phones a week ago so have to wait for next one now. It will be my third request so should definitely be starting. x

Ahh I will have my FC for you then hun - the worst part is the waiting isn't it?! x

Thank you for your comments. That's ok, it sounds like ive got more injections this time but that doesn't worry me - just need AF to hurry up and show her face! lol xx

Hiya, hoping your period shows up soon so you can get going. I had short protocol and much preferred it to the long one as a long time down regulating made me feel absolutely miserable. Hope all will go well for you x

Good luck with your second cycle. I’ve done short protocol, I’ve nothing to compare it to as I’ve never done long protocol but I didn’t find short too bad at all. Think I was injections for 9/10 days. Good luck xxx

Thanks for advising hun. I like the fact its a lot shorter, I felt like I wasn't really doing much at the beginning last time as I was just on a nasal spray that seemed to go on forever! lol x
