    Megan - Congratulations to you and Kim on your engagement. I hope that you guys can walk down that Ailse sooner rather than later....#%&@!% politicians!!!

    Jo - Good luck with your appointment today.

    Shan - hiya Honey, so sorry you got a negative - hopefully it really is too early?!? I'm glad you're doing good...I guess as long as we don't give up we are still in with a chance of hitting that jackpot. big to you my sweet.

    Sari - Best of luck - hoping that little embie sticks. I have everything crossed for a BFP for you - GO BLASTIE !!!!! Thanks for your reply, I really have no choice than to go a medicated cycle as we could be sitting here for another 3 months waiting for me to do something naturally. I'm on the provera now then moving onto clomid so hopefully if all goes well FET in about 3 weeks or so YAY!!!

    Hope everyone else is keeping well - have an awesome day Ladies....
    Lots of love

    Hi all,

    Thanks for thinking of me with my appointment, I guess most of you have been there done that so you know how nervous I was feeling.
    So mostly info session about options but from what I told him he thinks I may have a bit of endometriosis so not real happy about that.

    He said Dh sperm is fine & it seems from b/t that I am ovulating but we should investigate further so I am going in for regular b/t this month & when I am about to O he is going to tell us to BD (how romantic!!!) & then I have to go that day to do a post coital test Yipeeee.
    So that is where we are going to start, apparently it will tell how the sperm & cervical mucas is reacting together.

    Dr was very quiet but seemed to know what he is talking about so I am happy to stick with him, he was also very honest giving us no false hopes which is a good thing.
    He says even couples with no problems only have a 30% chance each month of conceiving & that the hardest thing is to get pg (well for some people anyway) so there not great odds are they?

    Anyway I will keep you ladies posted.
    Thanks for thinking of me.

    Nic - we were discussing before about spotting before af, he said that is a sign of endometriosis & to take cd1 from first heavy day of bleeding.

    Jo - That's great that you are happy with your Dr. Thanks for the info about the spotting, I have always taken the first day of heavy bleeding as CD1...so no probs there.
    It's funny..as a teenager I had terrible periods, and ended up seeing a gyno at 16
    He told me that I had ALL the symptoms of endo and even the family history, but "you don't get endometriosis until you are 25...the day you turn 25 come back and see me and we will operate on you to remove it" :eek: No joke, that is what he said to me. He was a horrible horrible man.

    Anyhoo, enough about that. Was finally able to get some BDing in last night. Temp took a big dive today, so hopefully we caught the eggie!

    Have a great weekend everyone

    Hi Everyone

    Jo i got told so many different things with my endo, i had a laparoscopy at age 18 and was told i had a small amount of endo, treatment with Danazol for 8 months and the only thing that would cure it was to have a baby. One doctor told me that i would have to be on Danazol for the rest of my menstruating life and just to come off it to try and fall pregnant and hope it didnt come back while i was TTC.

    Now my doctor doubts the diagnosis in the first place. But the fact that i was diagnosed when i was 18 and treated with Danazol eary on probably helped it never coming back. And it did help me with getting on the IVF program so meh...

    Well we had our appointment with our doc on Monday and he said that he thinks my best chances at pregnancy is using Kim's eggs. So I have been put on the pill so that my doctor can induce a period and ovulation in line with kim's cycle. She is CD 21 and i am CD 13. So I will be on the pill for only about a week and when i come off it i am supposed to get my period???? Like a week earlier than normal...Then just to make sure i ovulate he is putting me on Clomid, and to prepare my uterus, estogen and progestrone. After all that i should be a couple of days behind kim so that my cycle is just right for the embryo transfer!! Talk about a controlled cycle or what!!!

    Feels sort of rushed to me and i am starting to worry about whether my body will do as its told..i mean if all you had to do to induce a period was to put people on the pill for a week and then take them off the pill, wouldnt everyone with long cycles be doing that??
    I'm confused...has anyone had a donor egg cycle before?

    Hi I'm Shannon
    I have been reading the threads here for the last couple of months trying to gain as much info on IVF & OCSI that i can, I finally decided to join up last night so i thought i would introduce myself and say Hi!
    I'm 21 hubby is 25, we have been seeing our fertility specialist for about 12 months now.. and TTC for 32 months and on month 6 of clomid.. and loving (saracsm) the side affects!! I have Endo & PCOS and my hubby also has problems.. we were told about 4 months ago ( a week before our wedding) that IVF ICSI was our only hope. We are going with City Fertility Clinic in Brissie and would love to hear if anyone else has done a cycle with them?? and what were your thoughts??

    Hi and Thanks you wouldn't believe how much i've learnt from your threads and it helps to know someone actually knows how i'm feeling..

    Hi Danni
    Thanks and Congratulations.. i feel a bit better now i was a little unsure about saying i was 21 because we have faced a few people who are quite negative about helping us conceive because of my age..

    welcome shannon. It doesn't matter what age you are... infertility does not descriminate by age so why should anyone else?

    Hi ya Rachael Big hugs for AF showing up. I know how you feel.. after feeling nauseas for the latter half of last week I was getting all excited, only to have AF show up today.

    Jo , thanks for the info re spotting before AF I usually have this and taken this as CD1. Hmm you would think some one (dr's etc) would kinda mention it ???

    Good luck everyone else,

    Hi all

    I so glad (not in a good way really if you know what i mean)some one else felt a little uneasy about saying there age. I was 22 when we first started on IVF and people would always say to me you've got time on your side which i know is a gift to find out and start early but we have now been trying for over 3 years. Zap is so right infertility does not descriminate by age so why should anyone else!

    Hope you have a successful journey

    Hey Nic,
    Just read about you Doc! It reminded me of several gp's ive met during my many visits!

    One told me when diagnosed with PCOS at 13 that i would not be able to concieve with out IVF but not to worry cause his wife concieved with twins and has PCOS!

    A year after my ectopic i feared it was happening again and went to get checked and the Doc said there was nothing they could do until it ruptured!

    I too was told to count my first day of full flow AF to count as CD1 so now i am very confused. I had a lap on Monday to tie my left tube i was CD26 i bled alittle the next day then nothing but started spotting again yesterday not very much so i dont know wether its her or not and i want her to come as then i can start the pill ready for my 5th IVF cycle. Although my last was 54 days.

    Hope im making sense as im now confusing myself
