Still trying to stay positive but finding it hard after first round failed IVF

I haven't been on here in a while. Had the not so great news of being told we needed IVF

Went for a first round and it failed. Had hope of 5 more frozen embryos only to be told that i now have a polyp and possible scar tissue attached to polyp. Unfortunately I have had a 5 month wait for a hysteroscopy. This has been an emotional rollercoaster and I can honestly say I am finding everything difficult. After 3 years trying, two miscarriages one of which we had a first scan with a heartbeat and then over 18 months of trying after that with no success and then to fail at ivf I am really struggling. Like i'm sure everyone is I'm wanting us to try...like, tomorrow but having to wait again for another procedure x

Hi Minnie79. Oh dear, you've been through so much over the past few years, now to find you have another problem. I think perhaps you need to go back to your GP and see whether your "polyp" appointment can be brought forward a bit. Once you've got rid of that, I'm sure you will feel in a better position to cope. Your little frosties are quite safe waiting for you, so as soon as you are fully fit, off you go. Wishing you huge luck and success, and to get cracking, bless you! Diane

Thanks Diane. Unfortunately I have tried my Gp and they didn't want to help. They said it wouldn't be any quicker through them. I know I just have to be patient but at 38 and always wanting children it's becoming more difficult x

I agree with Lili19. See if you can get a cancellation. So hope you can. Diane xx

So sorry for how youre feeling...its tough going through this 😔

Do you know which hospital you'll have your procedure at? Maybe call and find out who the consultant is and then keep calling their secretary asking about cancellations and/or get on the cancellation list.

Ive found pestering the pa/secretary (in a friendly way) has always made my appointments happen a little faster 😉 xx

Thanks for the suggestions and the support. I have been trying to get a cancellation. Unfortunately they have cancelled a few of the clinics and the secretary was lovely she said she would call me if there was a cancellation x

Fabulous news on the cancellation list...dont be afraid to call back every now and then either. I know it feels like stalking but the secretaries genuinely seem to want to help and ive managed to get cancelled appointments when they said they'd call but havent had a chance to.

Wish you all the luck 😘😘 xx
