Moose Caboose - that sounds different to my FS's approach. They said to start with IVF (no ICSI) to begin with given sperm were ok. But as we had only 1/18 fertilise in retrospect we should have done ICSI from the start. Can you ask for more info from your FS so you are comfortable with the reasons/decision?
AFM - I had my second day 1 blood test yesterday (on day 3!) and my estrogen levels were low enough to start injecting! I was using an old synarel and think it must have been too low to be effective. Whoops. Excited to be starting this roller coaster again! Fingers crossed it's our lucky cycle x
Hi Everyone Is anybody else with genea ? Have you done a cycle/transfer with the new culture medium/media ? X
Lionheart34 my little fact sheet says it is okay to resume normal activities once you feel ready too. In saying that though I am very aware that i could be carrying the most precious cargo so I guess it makes it harder just to go on as "normal". I also read somewhere that you should not do anything that you will beat yourself up about if you get a BFN.
Loads of Love try doing the injections yourself. It will hurt less. I used to stand in front of the mirror. I also got some cream from the chemist to put on about an hour before and it numbs the area
Moose Caboose if it is any consolation we did ICSI and ended up with 9 5 day blastos. We are getting the best ones frozen and the very best one is back in my tummy.
KD0085 have you done a home pregnancy test yet. I am only day 1 and a little sore but that's it. Isn't it amazing how much more we are aware of it Good Luck either way.
Welcome.. and I am a total newbie on my first time round as well.

Our FS has decided no matter, what to go with ICSI. It is part of the package.
Here is hoping we are all succesful
I was told by my FS that we are not allowed to do ANYTHING in the 2ww. Gentle walking is about all. Even got told that orgasms ( self given) are a BIG no no.
However I am the newbie at this so *shrug* .....
Love the netball but I wouldnt take any risks until you get that BFP!

Moose caboose, we had no choice but to use ICSI with donor sperm. It's because the supplies are critically low at most clinics, and ICSI uses a lot less than regular ivf. Good luck!
