This is my first post.... my first cycle of IVF failed 😥. My period started on day 12 of the 2ww. I was told to still do the test as some can get a period and still get a positive.I had one embryo transferred and now that’s gone I’m struggling to keep positive for the second one. Phoned the clinic this morning to find out what next so I have to wait for two weeks for them to get back to me. We were lucky enough to get the funding trough NHS due to some health issues my husband had from birth. Does anyone know how long until you can start again? Has anyone been refused a second chance on NHS?

Sorry to hear about your period coming early this happened to me recently too. I am NHS funded and we get 2 cycles on the NHS I have a frozen embryo but I'm not sure if that classes as cycle 2 or still comes under cycle 1. I had my negative 2 weeks ago and it's another 2 weeks until I have my follow up appointment so I front know what the next step is for us at the moment it's like being in limbo xx

So sorry to hear that. I don’t know for sure but if I remember well from my first appointments they said if I have any frozen embryos I could use them on a different cycle.Maybe call the clinic and ask. I found the whole process ok until now. I’ve overcome my needle phobia and was so proud of myself. My side effects from the injections weren’t as bad as I thought it would be so i was very positive throughout the treatment. The last few days have been very hard especially today.i can’t stop blaiming myself even though I know it’s my fault. Another 2-3 weeks now to hear back from them. The nurse was very kind and offered counceling but I’ve declined it. I know it’s the standard. Fingers crossed all goes well next time for both of us. I hope the these weeks go fast. Xx

I’m really sorry about your failed cycle. Do you have any frozen embryos? I think you need to have period 3 times to start fresh cycle, not sure if it’s the same for a frozen one. The NHS funding will depend on a borough. Mine funded only one (which failed), I appealed but was refused. Sending you lots of love, be kind to yourself xxx

Sorry to hear you a had a failed cycle too. I don’t have any frozen embryos. So that was a bit disappointing at the time but then I told myself I only needed one. I’m in Wales so you have two cycles here. I don’t know if they can refuse a second cycle. Shame it’s a postcode lottery again! I see in Scotland you can have 3. My husband is very determined not to give up. I know to go private is very expensive. Thank you for your kind words. We must keep positive and it might happen one day. Xx

That’s really good news that you have 2 in Wales! I’m in London so most boroughs have only 1 or none. I also didn’t have anything to freeze but this time I have 7 on ice which I would never expect. I’m on 2WW of my 2nd cycle but went private this time. As you said we must keep positive. Lots of hugs x

Wow 7 is very good!Fingers crossed for you! Longest 2 weeks ever but I’m sure is all worth it. Looking forward to hearing your good news 🤞. Stay positive and look after yourself. X
