Hi lou.. what stage are you at?? Im from telford and spent lots of time at clinic as u can probably tell from my journey. I really like Shrewsbury the staff are lovely even tho ive seen a few leave since i started going.

I’m at this clinic too. Have been since 2014 with one fresh cycle failure and one successful frozen cycle. Currently preparing for a Frozen blasto transfer in which we hope we get a sibling for our little one. The clinic is fab, looking forward to starting next month at the new premises. Although a bit nervous as the old clinic felt a bit like home by the end of it all last tine!!

Awww we started our journey in 2015.. yeah i know what u mean i feel like it know everyone.. but it will be nice to have the embryos placed in a bigger room and not have someone in the bed so close next to u.

Its also sad to see some of the ladies go i loved gwen but she as gone and i struggled a lil with claire when i 1st started but she began to grow on me and now shes retired.

I deal alot with Rosie now

Aaw has Gwen gone? Gutted to hear that. Is Ros still there do you know? I saw Claire a couple of times and must admit wasn’t overly keen. I always tried to get appointments with Ros as she really made me feel at ease. Very nervous starting it all again tbh.

Hi I am in the same clinic too. We signed our papers yesterday and starting ivf in the middle of December. I am really worried about egg collection. How was your egg collection experience in Shrewsbury Fertility clinic? The nurse said some women sleep, some are awake and conscious. It can be painful sometimes. I do not want to be conscious. Did you fell pain during the collection?

Mine was a while ago now (2014) but from what I can remember I didn’t feel any pain. I don’t remember fallling asleep but remember it going so fast and kept asking my boyfriend when in recovery how long I’d been in there and where’d had he been!! He was like you must have zoned out, I think I was just a little confused/tired by the anaesthetic. It is fine. I worked myself up but it really wasn’t too bad. I had mine at the old clinc when it was at RSH but have recently had a transfer at the new premises and its so nice there. Modern and far better facilities. You’ll be fine. Best of luck!

Ahh thanks Devj. Hearing these stories helps. I want hear stories about women who did not sleep through ec like you. My eczama has flared up on my face due to stress. I am terrified. I had general anaesthetic for an operation. I just want to be uncouncious.

I just had the injection which sedates u but ur awake.. it just made me relaxed... if u use facebook come n join Shropshire fertiltiy page! Its amazing

Hi... thanks for your reply. what did you feel?

Reply

Also how long did it take?

Reply

I went in at 11.30 and was home by 1.30 but once i was home i slept.. its the recover after which takes the time and also depends how many follicles u have.. i have around 50 but only 13 eggs which were of good size. 10 made it fertilised and all 10 were sent to freezer due to u OHSS x

Thanks Mrplant, I joined to facebook group now. When I asked pain, I meant the pain/feeling during the egg collection. I do not know what to expect. It is big unknown for me.

Reply

U feel no pain.. just pulling.. i very bloated and sore after it all xx

Reply

thanks Mrsplant. Anticipating is worse than actual ec I think. Hope there is nothing unbearable. Hope you are well and get pregnant after FET. thanks answering my questions.

Ur very welcome xx

U feel very lil and ur that spaced out u dnt care.. i just felt a lil drunk like and was telling the nurses loads of rubbish.. roz thinks im crazy

Reply

Haha :) I do not think I can speak English in that state of mind. English is my second language. They wont understand me.

Im in my 2 week wait of FET at the moment

Hi everybody. Hope you are well. I had mentioned that I am worried about egg collection. I have postponed IVF which I was supposed to start on the 15th of December. I need some resassurance. :((( I need to hear 'come on, do not be silly, it is not that bad', how bad is it then?

Reply

Hi lovely, I’ll give you my story which is probably the worst case scenario. I was awake and conscious throughout EC, despite 2 doses of sedation and I felt it all. It was very painful but it lasted 15 mins and I’m sure it’s nothing compared to the pain of Labour. Also I felt it was worth the pain to get my end result which was 16 eggs retrieved, one of which is being transferred tomorrow. The nurses did say it is very unusual for a patient to be so awake and to feel so much, and chances are you won’t feel a thing. But if you do... isn’t it worth it to have your baby?! xx

Was it done in shrewsbury clinic?

Reply

Apologies for not replying, I didn't see your question, yes my cycle was at Shrewsbury. It's resulted in a BFP so all the discomfort during collection was 100% worth it x
