    Angelbutterfly - I've been avoiding those medications in TWW. I think panadol is better than the ibuprofen etc. But I'd ring the medication hotline 1300 MEDICINE (1300 633 424) and check it out. Only problem is I think they're business hours. Or Medicines Line: 1300 888 763 which I think answer into the evening. Hope this helps.
    By the way, not a silly question at all. I've heard the same about the 6 weeks but not positive if it's true.

    I was using the ibuprofen for the inflamation but if things haven't gotten incredibly better by the morning going back to drs, just to be sure about everything and I only got antibiotics upto tomorrow night and the dr I saw said if things aren't completely better in 5 days to go back.

    Hi all,

    Angel - my understanding is that no anti-inflamms in tww as it can inhibit implantation. I think that's why anyway, I know with IVF the nurses tell you no anti-inflams after embryo transfer.

    An update from me. Don't know if this is helpful to everyone or not, but gives me hope. We had zero fertilisation with our first IVF cycle. On our rest/off cycle I fell pregnant naturally (?!) but it left me at 5 weeks and now we are at the beginning of our next IVF cycle. Everyone was shocked including my specialist. We are in the unexplained group so never give up hope ladies.

    I don't know whether it was the drugs that kicked my body into something or if it was the extra stuff dh and I were taking. I'd started religiously on coq10 and vitamin d and dh was also taking coq10 and he was also having aloe Vera juice and we were having a small handful gogi berries every other day.

    I cannot say which was the thing, but my gut is saying the coq10. I am very hopeful now knowing that I can get pregnant (that was the first time I'd seen two lines EVER!) and we can get a blastie naturally, surely it can happen in a dish now!

    Good luck ladies and keep going. I still don't believe the whole relax and it'll happen, I wasn't relaxed at the point I got pg, I was stressing over where to find another $8k to do IVF! It's all luck, I say, so wishing you all truckloads of luck!

    Thank you wunsi - that does give me hope, at least. We're looking at our first IVF cycle in late September if we don't fall pg before then (two cycles to go). So it's great to hear that you can get pregnant, and also about the coq10... must try it!

    Had to go back to the drs at MIMS at the Mater again as I could not get into my dr or any other dr at the dr office. First of all the dr at MIMS was very shocked that my drs office has not rang me. They sent the sample away and cultured it and only 1 really strong antibiotic is going to work. Which I now am on. Sadly it's slows growth in babies taking it but the dr said to take it till and if I get a +hpt. He said it is unwise to take the ibuprofen and panadiene forte ttc (the only thing you should take ttc is pandol) but he said because of the nature of the infection I do have to take something and in this case it's what I have already been taking but he said the moment (if I do) get a +hpt to stop them, he said overall I should be right but it is safest in a normal situation not to take them while ttc. He also said when I get back to my own dr to talk to him about preventing them while ttc and during pregnancy I should be taking a medication call prophlaxis every day due to the fact I am prone to UTI and that some of them do get dangerously bad and I will need to take meds thats not good during pregnancy as nothing else will work. Which from all previous experiences is true I have only been able to take Noroxin but the dr the othr day didn't wanna listen to me. If things aren't good by Saturday have to go straight back o the drs.

    Oh no, you poor thing. It kills me to not be able to take Nurofen while TTC when I get a sore back or whatever as I'm so used to using it.

    It's important for you to be in good health though. I can understand how concerned you and frustrated you must be. I hope you feel better really soon.

    I just thought I'd add that prohylaxis isn't the name of a particular drug. It basically means 'preventative'...so they might give you antibiotics to stave off an infection you don't yet have...for example. Hope that helps and that I'm not stating the obvious!

    Thanks Erin, at first I thought it was a particular drug but jumped on google and found out it's a preventative, and the amount of times I get UTI's it's amazing my normal gp hasn't suggested it as yet. The doc I saw today said because of the severity of them it would be safest to be on something while ttc and through out pregnancy. Oh well I will see what my norm gp says when I finally get into him.

    Angel, I'm sure you've heard that cranberry is really good for uti prevention too, but in case you haven't- there it is . Hope that helps a smidge.

    Hoping I got my timing right, I'll hold off on testing for 2-3 weeks.

    Hi Toonzie yes, I have a glass of Cranberry Juice once a day and when I have a uti I have 3 glasses a day and once a day usually when hubby gets home from work for our arvo cuppa I have a Cranberry tea. But thanks for that.

    In the 2ww as well bit worried because of this uti and the antibiotics and pain killers. AF due in 6 days but will wait 8 days before testing.
