Hello, I wonder if anyone with experience or knowledge of IVF can help me.
I'm 32 and my husband and I have just been recommended for IVF with ICIS. After trying regular & well-timed sex for 2 years, we were referred to an NHS consultant and tests showed a low AMH level for me (means I don't have all that many eggs left!) and low sperm morphology for my husband. Technically there's a chance we could conceive naturally at some point in future but apparently it's so small we shouldn't wait.
I feel a lot calmer and happier now than I have for the last year - now I know we've got a plan and we'll be going for IVF, I've stopped feeling angry and anxious about not getting pregnant and trust this is the right way forward.
I'm not scared of the physical IVF procedure, but for some reason I am extremely nervous about taking hormones for three weeks before my eggs are harvested.
Can anyone tell me more about how the hormones affect you and how this feels? I imagine it's different for different people, but any info or any ways I could prepare might help.
We don't even have a date yet for when the process will happen so this is really just me trying to set my restless mind at ease!
Thank you x
