    Thank you so much ladies, you have all been very helpful.

    In response, I am currently a patient of SA Fertility seeing Prof R Norman at Carrington Street. I have found them lovely but very technical with how they discuss everything and it confuses me.

    Who are you seeing? Have you had much success with your treatments?

    Wow have been missing in action for a while and missed a bit!!

    Littledove- alprazolam is not just a "mild sedative", its an anti anxiety medication that is not safe for use in pregnancy. I wouldn't even take it as the egg is developing (before ovulation) as drugs can affect the developing egg. Like all of us, the jabbing just takes a bit of getting used to... have you ever seen someone about your needle phobia?? Maybe cognitive behavioral therapy or hypnotherapy would be a much safer option than self medicating. Did your doctor prescribe this for you for use with the injections? Hospitals keep alprazolam locked up in the restricted drug cupboards, it's an s4 restricted medication, potentially addictive. Can you get your partner to inject for you so you are not so anxious about it? Please talk to your clinic about it. If this is only the beginning of your ttc journey and you are needing it for the FSH injections, what would happen if you need to inject yourself with clexane or something during your pregnancy? or if you get pre-gestational diabetes or something and have to keep jabbing jabbing!!
    Anyway saw that was a while ago, really hope it is going better and you are not so anxious!

    But Becca, I would def avoid alprazolam!!!



    Welcome munchkin!!!

    You have come to the right place!! What an exciting journey you are taking! It is very daunting! But with help from others who are going through similar things, it is easier!!
    I hated clomid, and it didn't work for me, so here I am. Jabs are not too bad at all, I take them at the same time every day from the 4th day of my cycle until I'm about to ovulate. Then I have a trigger injection to make me ovulate, and then I get a few weeks off jabbing till AF shows up ( or doesn't). Hit us with any questions!!

    Becca, ah relaxation is not someone I get much of nowadays, and i am having a particularly bad cycle so much pain and I feel so sick all of the time.


    AFM - still on 87.5 units. E2 is 350 so slowly climbing, hopefully we will have some action soon, having a scan and more bloods tomorrow.

    How is everyone going???? Greenfairy?? How many days have u been jabbing??
    Minipolly? Ovulated naturally yet??

    Mam xoxo

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alprazolam

    Especially the section on pregnancy, trying to get pregnant, and note that it is used for moderate to severe anxiety, not just a mild sedative

    Hi mam,
    I'm going really well actually, feeling really happy and content surprisingly. I'm doing my 9th injection this cycle tonight and have another scan on fri morn. I had a 12 mm follie on the right side at my 7 day scan on tues so fingers crossed I get a second go at this TTC business soon!!

    I'm having the hsg test done tomorrow, bit late notice but decided I'd rather just tick that box and know for sure there are not other factors if I get another bfn. Least I haven't had a chance to get too worked up about it. I'm just ducking out of work at 9:30 and back at 11:30 so hoping its all going to be ok. It's DP 30th tomorrow so I wish it was another day but not to worry.

    Looking forward to the weekend cause we're having a small party so that will be fun. We are also waiting for a new car any day and new lounges in a few weeks, and my sister is visiting in 2 weeks from the air force so I'm super excited about that!! Lots going on but it all keeps me happy and distracted.

    Hope everyone else is going along alright. Only 2 days to go this week

    That will be great! At least you will know for sure if your tubes are ok!! Maybe take a panadol before you go? I found that I had bad cramping after, but otherwise just uncomfortable. Let us know how it goes!!

    Enjoy your dps party!! The big 30!!!

    Hope that follie comes along nicely, u don't have blood tests do u?? Xoxo

    OMG OMG!!! How unexpected!!! I have two follies, one 15mm and one 18mm... So I am ready to go!! Just waiting to hear how my bloods are and will trigger tonight. If I have had an LH surge already I will have iui tomorrow, if I haven't then it will be Saturday!! So unexpected!!

    But I'm so mad at DH!!! I told him that we may need iui at the end of this week or early next week... So I was expecting that he would be good and that the last time we bd the other day would have been the last time he got rid of his little swimmers...
    But no.... he informs me that he did it in the shower this morning. Nice one. Thanks DH, now instead of 3 day sperm like they want, it's going to possibly be not-even-24 hour sperm... Oh I was fuming!!! "You don't have to do anything in the whole cycle except keep your hands off yourself and me for a few days prior, and jack off in a cup!!! And you can't even do that!!!" I was so mad!!!!! This is our last cycle before moving on to ivf, I am just so mad how he couldn't even use his flipping brain and think... I know that his sperm will still probably be fine for insemination, but man... I have to inject myself every darn day, have to go through all this crap, and he only has one bloody job to do and can't even get that right... I'm glad he is at work or I would punch him right now!!!!! (not really, I'm not violent...)

    Greenfairy, how are your tubes????!! Xoxo

    Yay Mam!! That's very exciting news I'm so happy for you. I feel your frustration with dh - you got my story last cycle!! Try not to stress though cause it won't be any different to if you were dtd every day? All the very best for your iui over the weekend!!

    My hsg went fine and there's nothing wrong with my tubes, just $250 out of pocket paying for it - $500 this week alone. I was happy and fine this morning but DP didn't even wish me luck or ask how it went when I got back to work. I got a bit teary at the scan just felt so on my own in all this. We haven't even dtd since last o time...

    Anyway he is coming to my scan in the morning and hopefully I'll have a couple of big follies too. Oh and when I spoke to him later he did say he was proud how I'd handled everything and he knew it wasn't easy. Made me tear up again cause that's the first time he's acknowledged my hardship in all of this!

    Out for dinner tonight for the big 30th birthday today - might even cheer myself with a wine
    Thinking of you mam, hopefully we can wait this tww out together xx
