    Do your fam/friends know that you're starting treatment, or just keeping it between you & your DH? xx
    I find it really relaxing, i hope i can keep it up! I am pretty sure it isn't recommended after transfer but for stimming it would be good! We'll see

    I am from the UK, been here 5 years, my mum and dad are aware we will be doing it but i am not telling them when, just to take the pressure off. One of my sisters knows everything and DH's mum and sister knows, but they are good and don't ask too many questions. I felt i had to tell my mum and dad as I (regrettably) told them when we were going to start trying. I felt I had to tell them what's up. And there is a kind of unwritten rule that i won't keep stuff from them and they won't keep stuff from me lol. And only 1 of my friends from back home knows, i dont have any friends here that i am close enough with to talk to about this stuff.
    What about you? Keeping it quiet? xxx

    @missalissa1987 lol I seem to have that unwritten rule with my folks too! And was in the same boat as you - my parents, as well as my sis & bro-in-law knew about us needing treatment - But like you we never actually told them that we had started. But unfortunately with a previous cycle I got OHSS & was admitted into hosp for a few days - so was forced to tell them. I speak to my mum pretty much everyday so it would've been too suss me just going MIA for a week lol

    They know we're taking a break now but haven't told them till when etc, so I may just revert back to keeping it under wraps again

    Hey Ladies... Mind if I join... Will give you some back ground on myself for tho set hat don't know, sorry KayzB you probably know all of this stuff

    I am from USA been here for 12 years (dual citizen, yippie). Been married to DH for ten years and have been off contraception for 9 and have never called pregnant. DH and I are both 36 and so we started this journey into why hadn't been able to in 2011... We have we have only done two ivf cycle though in that time... We are now on our fourth clinic and FS and actually seeming to get somewhere... First cycle - 3 follicles -NO eggs collected (cycle in townsville where I live). Second cycle - 4 follicles - 4 eggs collected, 3 mature and fertilised with ICSI, 0 made it to transfer.

    I have low ovarian reserves, low ovarian response to stimulation, and poor egg quality. New FS has me on DHEA, CoQ 10, Inositol, & Melatonin to help with egg quality and quantity. I also have Hashimotoes Hypothryoidism and on medication for that and low vitamin d. Which I gets shots of to top up. DH has low sperm count that can rapidly change... Example end of February for 1st cycle had count of 4 million... 13th March sample give to freeze .32 million and we are not sure what the count was for the fresh sample give at time for ICSI, but we know it was low... He also has low testronorone for his age, but grows body hair, facial hair faster than my grass grows in the wet season up here. So we have issues on both sides which makes it hard... And the fact he has no to low sperm really affects DH emotionally hard... He's just a good man and provider and he just feels like he's letting me down... And you now we have started going through this I feel I am letting him down as well... Stupid process...

    Anyway my new clinic is in Sydeny we have chosen Genea...my FS doesn't specialise in male fertility issues so as recommended DH sees a college of hers so doing a skype call with dr lok for DH on the 14th to see if there is anything we can do for DH. And DH is hoping it doesn't have to do anything with big needles for extraction as he probably wouldn't do it at that stage... And with he pain threshold I probably wouldn't blame him.

    So that's where we are at... We are taking my next cycle off as it would put EPU over Easter and I have some friends coming to visit over that time... So it will be nice to have a bit of an emotional break... Focus on loosing this weight I have put on from the meds... Hopefully my breasts will reduce back down to a more managable size... And next cycle we will be able to make it all the way to a transfer with a TWW... I am sure it has never been said in these iVF forums... I CANT WAIT TO BE INTO A TWW..... BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!

    Well that's my TTC story... Hoping like all of us here for a happy ending.

    Oh as far as people who know... 1st cycle lots of people knew... I couldn't help it... I was so excited... Second cycle DH parents knew as we had to be away for two weeks in Sydney... And they had to watch my house and critters.. And few good friends knew...but I didn't tell my parents... They are so negative... So I haven't spoken to them since our failed first cycle.

    Bub hub and our friends have been so supportive... That's all I need.

    Hi ladies, sorry to jump on your thread I saw @Booboo78 was cycling again soon so wanted to stalk and find out how she was doing

    @[URL="http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/forums/member.php?122861-Soques"][B]Soques[/B][/URL]; There is a thread on here called High Natural Killer Cells and there are a lot of us that have immune related fertility issues. Some of the ladies there have DH with sperm issues and their FS has put them on a vitamin regime that has helped increase the quality of the samples. Also some of their DH have had to have TESA for samples but this is done under a general, so even though recovery is bad, they are out of it and don't feel it as it's happening - just a thought. If you have a look at the NK thread you might find it, or if you search on Wazza (Dr in QLD) they talk on that thread about the supplements he has the DH take for quality issues.

    Good luck

    Sorry didn't mean to jump into your thread, just couldn't read and leave without saying anything.

    Hi everyone Do u mind if I join the thread? Both DH & I are due to do our 1st ever ivf cycle in May

    So far, egg collection has been scheduled for the 23rd of May....providing everything goes ok.

    We've been waiting since Dec to do ivf in May so I got really excited & told family & friends which I'm starting to regret now as people keep asking about it..I wish I never mentioned a thing as I don't want to tell everyone exact dates etc.

    Oh great @Soques again! Lol jk hun sorry to see you here (but I mean that in the nicest way possible!)
    Let's hope it'll finally be Our turn eh for a successfully magical outcome! xx

    Welcome @Rocky27! Understandable that you told people out of excitement hun. But yeah it would put extra pressure on you. With people wanting to know where things are at & waiting/expecting things to happen etc. Do they know that you're actually starting in May though? If not you could keep it under wraps from now onwards?

    When do you start jabbing & what will you be on? xx

    Hi everyone, recognise a few names, can I join too? Looks like I'll be cycling then too. Lucky last go for us ( well that's the plan anyway) I'm a notorious over sharer so most know I'm doing ivf. Try to keep things a bit more to ourselves but I have a tendency to blurt stuff out or need help with babysitting dd when I have appts.
    On a different note feel a bit down and guilty today as my sister just found out she is pregnant ( only really trying for a month) I'm happy for her but also shattered that I'm not too. If our last cycle had of worked we would be due the same time.
