Ivf review appointment done ✅ 2nd cycle consent appointment next week!

RhinoCat

Well, I didn’t expect to be typing such a .... positive and ready to go post after our first review of our negative cycle .... but .... here goes :

No need to wait unless not mentally ready ✅

Change of meds and increased dose in hope of getting more eggs ✅

Previous egg response was fine and eggs produced good quality with accurate bloods. Down reg still fine as bloods proved ✅

No need to take additional drugs as folic acid is one with most evidence / studies ✅ eat healthy and cut out crap 💩

****change ***Gonal f instead of Menopur

Our consent appointment is on Monday with my down reg on 3rd March 😱😱😱😱😱

As I’m still a couple of weeks from stims I’m figuring fire on ???? Anyone else agree????

Rollercoaster 🎢 number two coming up!

Ps I asked if I needed my amh tested again as it was 6.8 a year ago and he said no, it will have dropped , we will increase dose of stims based on what my body did and produced in October .

That’s great news, you can do this! I really hope it will be successful this time 💜

Me too! No point in waiting sure my eggs are dying and I’m still off work so no time like the present! Fingers crossed the nursing team on Monday can get medication etc all ordered and sorted for us 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Sounds positive Rhinocat 👍x

I’ll take it! He was so straight , no faff! Just what I needed 😎

Its rubbish having to wait when youre ready to start again so thats really good. Roll on round 2! Xx

We did exactly the same cycle 1 was November/December and cycle 2 was January/February. We felt ready and just wanted to continue. Think if this hasn't worked (which I don't think it has) we will take a break before doing round 3 as I think that'll be our final round x

Yeah, we’ve one free round on nhs queues up for May/June so we will see how it goes. It’s there if we need it and will just have to take the blessing of it’s security and crack on . I think wasting time (three years ) before I asked gp for help means I’m not for wasting time , plus we had first egg collection in October and our second will be April so , big enough break etc I feel . So glad the dr had no issue with it all and answered what we needed .

All sounds positive and we felt exactly the same after messing about for 3 years before doing something solid we wanted to keep cracking on too! x

What stim drug you on? They want to try Gonal f on me this time ? Reason : it’s purer and gets good results

We were on Menopour both times but upped the dosage the second time from 225 to 300 to get more eggs which worked we went from 8 eggs to 13 x

I did Gonal F plus Menopur and was a great combo for me! Xx

Aye, not sure if they will do a combo but I’ve seen a few with that. They are having a meeting tonight so I will find out on Monday what they agree . Then I’ll settle for next bit 🤣

Aww. Don’t be scared, most pregnancies go smoothly and times goes so fast so do try to enjoy it as much as you can. It is the best time to be a diva, ask your DH to do everything while you put your feet up. Xx

Hello issy my appointment went very well. The doctor was friendly and she clearly read all my notes and background information beforehand which was reassuring! I asked her about success rate for 40-42 and she said theirs and the lister’s are similar so you are definitely in good hands. I will let you know how I get on at the lister next week. Have a lovely lovely weekend xx

Yay! I’m happy to hear- it does make such a difference when you find a clinic with a clinical team you feel you can trust. Comparing to my previous clinic (where I didn’t feel I could trust the team), this experience has been SO MUCH BETTER overall, in terms of care and empathy (and results too!). These clinics are very expensive but it’s really worth it for me! I’m looking forward to hearing what you think about the Lister 😃💋💋💋💋

Hello RhinoCat my appointment went very well today, they were much more thorough than my previous clinic. If I go with this clinic I won’t be able start my cycle until April because they do a monitoring cycle (March). I am visiting another clinic next week and I will choose one of them. How are you today? Xx

Let’s just say , I fully know and live by the motto:

LIFE IS SHORT, LIVE IT WELL. 😘

I think if the dr had shown emotion of the sad variety I would have cried into a puddle but he asked how we both were and he seemed to feel we were sad but realistic . He gave no reason to wait and after down reg it’ll be another couple of weeks before we start injections etc . That’ll be grand 😘

I agree. As long as you are mentally ready then go for it! Xxxx

Great news you can get started so quickly! 3rd March is literally just around the corner 💃

Added bonus, Gonal F comes in prefilled pens so you don’t have to do those stupid Menopur vials you have to snap open (hate them! 😂)

Xxx

Oh brill!

My menopur had to be drawn up from a bottle with that mix thing .

Is it more expensive ? I never even asked today 😂🤣 💴

in reply to RhinoCat

Oh lucky you! I had to snap these glass vials open to mix it. Stressed me out every day 🙈

I think most of the stims drugs are around the same cost, although if they are significantly upping your dose you’ll definitely notice on the invoice! 🤪 xx

I’ll not the husband just yet then 😂

Great news RhinoCat!! What dosage were you on last time of menopur? I'm going onto gonal f this time, have tried twice on menopur xx

Oh brill, my last dose was:

2 x225 for two days

Then one night dose of 225 for 9 days . Then trigger and eggs collected.

You?

I was on 450 daily (150 x 3 injections) for 8 days then 2 days on 300! I was on the max dosage, amh is 11, short protocol. This time doing long protocol and then 375 of gonal f..I think..havent had the detail yet. Hopefully not been maxed out will help.

I'm glad they are changing it for you next time, a different approach has surely got to mean better outcome 👍👍🤞

Starting long protocol mid March time when do you think youd go again? Xx

Ah 3rd march!! 👍👍 woop! Wont be too far behind you x

I’ll be two weeks after that for stims 😘 we will be close 😘

We will be! You're such a positive person, I really need to start believing it can happen and put a positive spin on this round, come on! Lots of luck my lovely xx

Whoop! 🙌 why not us next round ? If you pray for rain ☔️ you should bring your umbrella 😘 if you pray for a baby . . . Get yourself ready , mind, body and soul 😘

Are you listening to the mindful ivf app?

So true 🙏🙏

Why not us ey?!

Yep I am...old Gord! Helping a lot.. do you like it? Also doing my colouring in and mind puzzles like a child 🤣🙌✍

Love him! I’ve got my colouring out again ready for action 😘😘😘😘💐💐💐💐

Are you Italian too?

No 🤣 I just love Italy, holds a special place in my 💗. Got engaged there and honeymooned there 💗

Italy is in my heart too, spent lots of summers there, and some of my favourite ladies on here are Italian too 😍😍😍 Italian in the inside 🇮🇹

Ps I’m not Italian either I meant like my other favourite ladies 😂😂🤣🤣🤣

Aw that's nice ☺

It really is the best place,cant wait to go back...hopefully with baby in tow 🤞🤞😬😬👶🇮🇹

This is very quick! And very positive! And you sound super informed! I am really happy you can continue immediately and your clinic sound like they know what they're doing (and aren't dicking you around or anything). Awesomeness!!!!! xxx
