Egg collection tomorrow!

โ€ข24 Replies

Its my first egg collection in my natural modified cycle in the morning, am pretty nervous to say the least. I have one big follicle and thats the one they will try to get, was told it would only take 10 to 15 mins to do. Im worried i might have ovulated naturally already, and not been told about what happens after regarding meds. Do you have to take progesterone in this type of cycle, will i be scanned before transfer to check all is ok? If all goes well the transfer will be day 2 or 3 because of the type of cycle we are doing.

I mean, they must have to check my lining and stuff right?

Why i didnt think of all this when we were there yesterday ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Hey dear

All the best and don't worry all will be fine...

Thankyou, i hope so. On here lots of women talk about being in a lot of pain after, so i just dont know what to expect with that side of things either.


When you enter ivf should be ready for good and the bad..

For some one cycle is enough and for others many cycles till menapause and give up...

But don't lose hope and you will do good...

I realise that hunny, but thats not what i was worried about. It was just to know what happens with the procedure in my cycle as ive not done this before and want to make sure we have given it our best shot. I would be angry at myself if i found out i could have done something that i didnt to give us a better chance.

You are doing best at this moment dear ,there nothing more you can do but I will pray for you ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

Thankyou ๐Ÿ˜˜

Hi Purple Witch,

I donโ€™t have any advice on the natural modified cycle but just wanted to say good luck!

Iโ€™m always fine after egg collection so hopefully you will be too x

Thankyou Kibo, hopefully because its only the one egg to get it will be fine. Its the unknown, and thats the scary part! X

Hi there, it is not bad at all compared to laperoscopy. The thought is the worst part. Just take it really easy and donโ€™t sit up too fast after the egg collection is done:). Wishing you the best of luck. I am not sure about the process for your type of IVF. I am sure you can call them today to reassure yourself. X

Youre right Telford, ive been through much worse, but i will be awake so its a bit of an odd feeling knowing that. Ill be sedated but only enough to make me drowsey. I think i might just try to fall asleep anyway lol. She said i wont need painkillers? Im hoping she is right. Ill ask everything tomorrow and make sure we both know exactly what we are doing, it just dawned on me today that i knew everything up to this point only ๐Ÿ˜ฌx

Yes that is a bit odd knowing your awake! I guess just have to put your faith in the doctors. Can u take a stress ball or something to focus on?! Good luck.

Good idea! And thankyou x

Just wanted to wish you luck! Your lining grows in line with your follicles so this would have been checked already!xx

Thankyou cinderella, one less thing to worry about then as its not really been mentioned so must mean its ok. I wont lie, i will be glad when its all over! I see videos of women and theyre so excited to get the eggs, im just thinking of having a long probe with a needle shoved up me at the moment!xx

Ha ha ha yes I can understand your worry but hopefully the sedation will do the trick and you wont feel a thing!xx

Fingers crossed! Xx

Good luck ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

Thatโ€™s what Iโ€™ve been doing all weekend and this morning!! Xx

Purplewitch18 in reply to EmGLA

Yay, it feels natural to talk to them, hope its a good sign for us both! Xx

I had EC today aswell... how did you get on? Iโ€™m feeling ok just little cramps and tiered. I just canโ€™t wait for phone call tomorrow xx

Hi aww well done hope all goes well for you. Mine is in the morning at 8.45 xx

Good luck with egg collection tomorrow! Your clinic will decide if you need to take progesterone etc., but if you have any questions give them a call! Give them a call now if they're open! This is a very stressful process, and I can imagine you're anxious to know everything. That, or you can wait until tomorrow when you see them. Write all your questions down! Take them with you. Best wishes. xxxxxx

Thankyou ttcemmie, i will make sure they cover everything tomorrow. They always ask if we have any questions but can never think at the time. Our nurse we have had all the way through wont be there as its her day off, id feel more confident about it if she were there xx
