For my fresh cycle I arranged to have 3 weeks off work 1 weeks IVF leave and 2 weeks Holiday.. my transfer got cancelled due to OHSS, so I’m just doing my frozen transfer now. I’ve been feeling very very stressed with work, to the point of not being able to forget about it at all. I’ve spoken to work today both my HR manager and my OPs support manager about my concerns of work pressure on my frozen cycle, one advised me to take the time off I need and not to worry about my job as it will be there when I get back and the HR manager offered me paid leave so I can get myself together and be able to have the best possible start for the embryo.
Now here’s the pickle, I am very grateful for both their support and I don’t want to seem like I am taking advantage of it but I think I should be asking for a couple of days before transfer so I can switch off and up until test day. So 14days in total.
Does this seem excessive? I would be able to get a sick note for the whole 14 days from my clinic but the Hr manager said not to worry or justify it just take what I need.
What do you think?
