well what a huge month! I survived my first cycle of Ivf. Was problematic from the start. I wasn't responding well to gonal f after four or five days so upped my dose.cetritide give me hives after every injection for a we hours but I was told to stay on it anyway. Scan only showed four follies so upped my dose again and delayed the egg pick up. At my final scan I had eight follies but they only retrieved five eggs. The day after pick up my fs rang and said he had bad news. Only one egg fertilised. Apparently my husbands sperm stopped swimming early. They should have done icsi but they didn't know that until it was too late. So one fertilised egg put back two days early (on day three). Got to theatre and they said it was showing signs of stress. Put it back in anyway. Two days ago I started to spot. Rang nurse yesterday and she said to keep up crinon just in case and refused to preg test me any earlier than Monday. Bleeding like a period today so I am sure it is all over and hpt was negative of course. So there you go.....a really crappy month ( and a very expensive month) .
Next time we go for Ivf they will do huge doses from the start and use icsi to fertilise my eggs. Should be much more effective next time. Can't help but feel kind of ripped off by my clinic... It was a very expensive "trial". I know every individual is different and it is not an exact science but still makes you cranky.
Anyway, i am going out for a movie tonight with my bestie so I am sure I will feel better after that.
