Hi ladies,
Hope everything is going well for you all. Just noticed this forum and thought I'd join as it's nice to talk to people who are experiencing the same - plus I haven't told anyone so its good to be able to talk, haha.
I have been on the burserelin injections for 3 weeks now, started them on day 21 of my cycle on 11th September and started the Oestrogen tablets on Thursday (29th).. felt ok, have had a few headaches and also keep getting some pains here and there in my joints weirdly Surprised but other than that seem to be ok. It also itches after the needle a bit and there is a little hard lump, but it really isn't too bad, more of a sting which I think is just the fluid going in. I also noticed that mumof3 seems to have started the drugs around the same time, so hope this is going ok for you too Smile
I am just hoping now that the lining of my womb will be thick enough next Thursday to arrange for my frozen embryo transfer. This is our second go at ivf, we tried in 2006 and it did work, but unfortunately I had a miscarriage early on.
I had 10 embryos frozen and am going to be thawing 5 of them out and hopefully they will pick the best two to put back Smile
I already have a gorgeous son, who I conceived naturally, who is 13 next week :0) and my husband and I would love to give him a brother or sister Laughing
I had 2 ectopic pregnancies in 2004 and had to have both my fallopian tubes removed, therefore, I can no longer conceive without help. The last attempt of ivf, I think I wasn't in the right frame of mind and was quite negative. I am feeling a bit more positive this time around, so I am hoping this will rub off on the outcome Smile
Anyway, I would love to chat to any of you and listen to your experiences, so if you want to talk, please post Cool All the best, Kelly Very Happy

hi teabag33, Hows things? unfortunatly my ivf was cancelled but I'm starting again 7th october.
Whats happening with you now, are you waiting for thursday to see if lining ok?
I'm glad your feeling more positive, was thinking myself If your positive if that actually alters the stress we put on ourselves and contributes to a better outcome.
Wishing you all the best.
keep in touch.
xx

Hiya xLJx, Strange your left ovary not showing up, but hey ho.
Dont worry about only having 4 folicles, as they sound good quality being large.
Plus it only takes one!
I've got all this to go through so maybe I'll be asking you advice soon enough.
Much love and luck to you huni xxxx

Hi mumof3, so sorry to hear your ivf was cancelled Sad Have you started treatment again today? How did it go? I have got another scan tomorrow morning to see if the lining of my womb has thickened up, so fingers crossed it will have. If it has, then hopefully they can give me a date next week for my frozen embryo transfer Smile I will let you know how it goes. When will you have to go back again now? Keep in touch and thanks for your reply. Hope things go well for you tomorrow too xLJx Smile xx

Thank-you x Hi mumof3 hows it going did you start your treatment to day? the pain relief is good makes you very relaxed I was very nervous actually shaking like a leaf The doc said the key is to relax yourself as its easier for doc to do his stuff.Anyway phoned at 10,15 to see what made it ONLY 1 MADE IT so i go tomara at 3.00 I had a wee cry this morning.Cant believe its all happened so fast The doc said it only takes 1 so am going to take it easy the next few weeks. I have stopped smoking 8 months now so hopefully that helps. This is my 1st IVF on the NHS. Thankyou Tbag33 How did your scan go ? goodluck for the transfer hope all go's well xx Smile

Hi xLJx, how are you feeling after fridays appt? and now its the dreaded two week wait!
Well I started my injections friday but I'm struggling to get the needles in. I'm really pushing and leave a dent but it doesnt go in. I was wondering if there are any finer needles I could use.
Hope your feeling ok.
Sending you sticky glue xx
