I have previously had 6 months worth of clomid and scans etc at the local hospital after FTC for the last 2 years and after that wasn’t successful I was referred to my local fertility clinic, we had our first appointment yesterday.
Perhaps I was being naive but I thought that they would be offering me other types of medication or some other kind of treatment to try first, thinking IVF was the last resort.
We were told that IVF will be our next option which to be honest has left me feeling emotional and overwhelmed. I guess I’d just hoped it would never come to this as it now makes it all feel so serious!!
As I was on day 4 of my cycle it turned out to be good timing so I had an internal scan and a blood/urine sample taken when I was there. My husband has got to go back next week for his up-to-date sample. We were given so much information but it’s all just turned into a bit of a blur and we left without picking up our information pack!!
We have got another consultation after my husbands next appointment but I’ve just got a couple of questions.
Can anyone confirm is it day 1 of your cycle that you start taking the first lot of injections/ medication or will it depend if I’m on the long or short programme?
Also, is it the day that they do the egg collection that my husband will have to do his sample? Sorry for the essay! Xx
