    Hi all, and welcome Janet. I hope everyone is doing well, sorry that I don't have time for personals today.

    I had a scan on Saturday which revealed that there were 3 possible follicles which we were hoping would die off so that there was just one. But I had another scan today, and I am out of the race without even starting this cycle. 3 follicles on my left ovary and another one had developed on my right! So with 4 possible eggs, we have decided that there is too much risk of a multiple birth to go ahead. So no unprotected DTD for 10 days and hopefully in that time my period will start. I am then starting a down reg cycle of IVF.

    Got my nurses and accounts appointment on Friday, but have to wait a couple of weeks until we can see the counsellor.

    Disappointed that things did not go to plan, but believe this is the best thing for us especially with how unpredictable my ovaries are.

    All the best

    Janie - I'm sorry to hear that this cycle didn't work out I hope you are doing ok. It's good to see you looking ahead now to the next step - and it will be good to get the admin and counselling side of things up and running and then into the treatment.

    Janet - welcome to the thread here I was very excited and quite nervous my first ICSI cycle also - but I asked lots of questions and did a lot of reading and it helped with the unknowns a little. Please feel free to ask anything that you're no sure about - there's plenty of people here who will be able to help, I'm sure! Good luck with your upcoming cycle.

    AB - it's nice to see you in here again - I have wondered how you've been doing, hun
    I think you're doing everything you can, hun.
    Other than artificial insemination, I'm not sure what other medical options there are that aren't as invasive as IVF. I know there is a procedure called GIFT (Gamete Intra-Fallopian Transfer) - which is almost as invasive as IVF (egg collection is required) but it usually involves a lot less hormone treatment, which could be better. It involves collecting your eggs and mixing them with your DH's sperm there and then and replacing 2-3 eggs with sperm back into your fallopian tube during the egg collection procedure. Any extra eggs collected are then inseminated via IVF and frozen as per usual.
    The trouble with that type of treatment is it is still fairly invasive, almost as much as IVF, but with a lower success rate in comparison, and probably less eggs collected for such a similar procedure. I expect the success rates for a couple who has required ICSI for fertilisation wouldn't be anywhere nearly as good as ICSI either. The advantage is that you probably won't have to go through so much hormone treatment before having your eggs collected, and it is a way to assist the sperm to do their thing without having to go the whole hog. Unfortunately, DH and I were told that we had to go the whole hog straight away to have anything more than a tiny chance with his sperm as they were, hence we started with IVF/ICSI straight away. Perhaps this is the same reason you had to go to ICSI straight away also?
    I hope the info has been helpful, hun. I think it would be a good thing for you and DH to make an appointment for one of the two doctors you've been recommended and ask the questions you're asking us to them - is there any other medical way other than ICSI for you to get pregnant and what are the chances of those other options? Be open and upfront with a doctor, and they will answer you. If you don't like what you hear, or you don't feel comfortable with that first doctor, have an appointment and ask the same questions of the next doctor you were recommended.
    I hope you find a way forward that feels comfortable and right for you and your DH, hun.

    Paula - good luck with the TWW! I'm sure the other ladies in the TWW thread would love your company! I hope the time goes quickly, and the pregnyl injections continue to go smoothly for you.

    TL - woohoo! Pregnancy, here she comes! I had a friend who had some pale purple streaks in her blonde hair a few weeks ago - purple is her favourite colour - and they look great. What a perk up for you! Yay!

    Hi to everyone else in here - hope you're all doing ok in your respective cycles.

    Question We have been TTC. This is our 3rd year!!

    Hi, I'm new to this and trying to get used to all the abbreviations.
    I just gave myself 2 injections 300mg of Puregon and orgalutran (the nasty one). Going through antagonist cycle.Our 5th attempt at IVF/ICSI. Booked for EC on monday or tuesday. They will confirm it with me this friday after blood test and U/S. Cause we are getting concerned its not working the Dr is going to place to embies back (thats if I get enough eggs/embies). Fingers crossed it works this time cause I don't think I can keep going...
    Is anyone out there going throught the same thing at the same time....it would be nice to have support by someone who really knows what i'm going through, and i would like to support you.

    Hi Natalie, welcome to BB We are currently going through our 4th cycle - we've had two fresh cycles so far and this will be our second thaw cycle. We'll also be having two embryos transfered. I think many of us here understand you when you talk about the feeling of struggling to find the will and the strength to keep trying... even after the first unsuccessful cycle! I hope your BT and scan on Friday go well and that it's good news and all systems go for EC next week. Often I remind myself that I have to keep focussed on the feeling of having a child in our arms and a new life in our family to continue to keep our hope of this treatment working going. The hope is what allows you to continue with the treatment. There's lovely lovely people here at BB that will always be prepared to offer you any support you need, so please feel free to chat away about anything that you need to Good luck!

    Carla - it's so good to see you so lively and buzzing! Congratulations again!! Yay!!! Carla's UTD!!!!!

    PLC - how you doing there, hun?
