Kellyk77 - the tube test isn't as bad as it sounds, it's really quick and feels kind of like an uncomfortable Pap smear - couple of hours later the cramps kick in but nothing nurofen can't handle :-) good luck!
Hi Biscotti, Jem,Vix and Kellys, I also took coq10 150 one per day vitamin e and prenatals. Still taking the elevit too but will be glad not to have to choke on it for once. Biscotti and Kel, you only need one good quality embryo and a healthy uterus and you will get pregnant. I found that tube test uncomfortable and a bit painful but maybe I'm just soft
Hi ladies, I am taking prenatal, vit D, fish oil and CoQ10 I was also drinking red raspberry leaf tea up until transfer day, it is supposed to help uterine health.
I found the tube test quite uncomfortable but I did have a bit of a blockage in one tube so that apparently makes it more painful, I went back to work afterwards but I would recommend going home to a hot water bottle and some serious pain relief.
Thanks for the advice ladies.. i think i'll be waiting until i'm better prepared.
I had a vast difference in my results from a really healthy diet, no alcohol and acupuncture once a week.
I also take daily
3or 4g Melatonin
Also Adgrogyn cream to lower the FSH in the month directly prior to the cycle
I have a friend who succeed in the ivf journey and suggested a liver cleansing diet before the cycle starts too.
Think i'll try that this time and preconception yoga.
I've only been separated for 6 weeks so have been drinking wine over that time.
Something i'll be cutting out too.
Also cut out coffee.
@littlesparrow74 - I did the antagonist cycle both times , i ovulated on the flare cycle so thats not for me.
I got to transfer last time which gave me some hope !
This will be my 4th cycle.

Thx Vix, Hels & littlespareow for the advice re tube test. When I made the appointment they told me I wouldn't be able to go back to work and I should get someone to pick me up so have taken their advice and have a friend taking me and will come straight home after. I'm such a wuss when it comes to pain so hoping it isn't too bad... But I'll def have the hot water bottle and pain killers close by just in case sparrow!
I used Elonva on my first cycle which was cancelled due to no response.
That was with orgalutran.
This time it's Synarel - the "sniffer all" as I call it. Lol.
I guess we will find out how this "Boost" cycle works with my body and stubborn ovaries in the next coming week. FX
You must be really keen to get Thursday and those bloods done and dusted so you can cycle again. I hope all goes well with it and you're back in the IVF cycle saddle in no time! FX ✨
Biscotti that babydust sprinkle worked it's magic on me too - just got AF as well, spot on 28 days! Our cycles are synced I think this Flare starts on Day 2. My official day 1 will be tomorrow though I think.
Excellent work Kel fingers crossed for a great outcome. 28 day cycle sounds fantastic
Got my blood results... Fsh has gone back up to 15.3 :-(
Was so hopeful it would've improved again rather than got worse ... Feeling so despondent....
