So....for those of you that don’t know me my husband and I underwent 3 rounds of EC/ICSI in 2016 and had one FET in October 2016 which resulted in our beautiful daughter Lucy who has had a tough first year but is doing really well thank God.
We were always planning on trying again with our 4 remaining Frosties however we now have some news that potentially complicates things a bit. My mum has late stage ovarian cancer and they got around to testing her for the BRCA 2 gene (it’s a gene mutation that puts you at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer - the one Angelina Jolie has) so my siblings and I are all being tested. Turns out I’m positive for it and the recommendation is ovary and Fallopian tube removal pretty much ASAP. Apparently we discuss cutting my boobs off later 😳.
Anyway, I just wondered if anyone on here has been through the BRCA 2 journey while also going through IVF and has any tips/advice. I’m due to speak to my clinic soon and have an NHS gynae appt booked for end of the month too.
Yay! Cos it wasn’t already a stressful enough experience going through IVF!
