Yeah it sux Beta. Being on this thread has really opened my eyes to things. So many of us have been taken for a ride and after last year I had enough. I was emotionally and mentally exhausted. I took leave from work this year as it was too much to handle on top of ivf stress. I have definitely become more proactive about my health and have done so much research on ways to improve my chances. Sometimes you have to be your own doctor.
Another thing that baffles me about MIVF is that they do embryo transfers blind- no ultrasound. I always questioned whether it was going into the right spot. When I heard Lynn speak at the monash ivf seminar she spoke of the importance of doing an ultrasound guided transfer. The embryo needs to be in the right spot in the middle of the uterus. If they do it blind how do they know? They might put it too high or too low and it will fail to implant. Your uterus might be a strange shape and that can affect the chances. I just didn't understand why MIVF couldn't just whack in an ultrasound machine. It's not like they are lacking funds. At least now I got to see bubs being inserted and took a sneaky pic of the screen.
