    Rocky I was the same as heymissa - clomid was way worse than the ivf drugs! I was an emotional wreck on clomid but felt fine on ivf. Getting over the first injection was the tricky part!

    HeyMissA & Phee, I'm so relieved to hear that clomid was harder than ivf meds! I had such a bad reaction on clomid with it affecting my eye sight
    & the hot & cold chills all the time! I was sooo worried about starting stronger meds. The first one will be the hardest one I bet DH is coming to the appt but doesn't want to do them, so I guessing better pay attention

    Hi Rocky and others, i found the effects of IVF drugs a little easier than clomid except i had one meltdown hormonal day towards the end. Injections werent too bad even though hubby said he would do them and then chickened out.

    AFM, i have spoken with my FS to arrange the FET for my next cycle, currently i am CD5. She confirmed i'm doing a medicated FET on Letrozole CD2-6. Hopefully that's our magic protocol! Now just some more waiting waiting waiting xx

    Hey rocky
    Not doing so great. Had my gyno appointment today and he's basically told me there's nothing more he can do for me. No more clomid, no more anything. He told me to go back to the dr and get a referral to a fs. We can't afford that kind of treatment so ttc is officially over for us

    I hope your cycle goes really well and ends in a bfp!!

    I'm so sorry to hear Star, this long term ttc thing is just awful & I would never wish it on anyone. It's a shame that he can't do iui for you before looking at ivf.

    Hugs & we are here any time, especially if you need to talk or vent. I've found it hard talking to people in real life about it, as not many people seem to understand the pain that goes along with it.

    I'm still hoping that you will get a natural miracle What a lovely surprise that would be

    I was wrong about my cycle being back to normal, though af had arrived on Sunday but have just had 3 days of red/brown spotting without it increasing, it's not enough for a tampon.

    Rocky my dh didn't want to do it either. It's not so bad once you get through the first couple. I found the initial appointment so overwhelming, but watched lots of YouTube videos showing how to do the different injections and that made me feel more confident!

    Star I'm sorry you are at that stage. I'm not sure where you live but the mater hospital in Brisbane are currently recruiting participants for some clinical trials for a fertility drug. apparently it's been really successful in trials overseas and so they're trying to replicate the trials here. A friend of mine is participating and they're running lots of additional tests for free to see if she is eligible for the trial. Might be something you could look into? I don't know if any other hospitals are researching the same thing but you never know. I thought about it myself but if accepted they want to to take the drug for up to 8 months, and there's a 50/50 chance you could get the placebo. After nearly 3 years of ttc it wasn't worth the risk for us, but if ivf wasn't an option I'd definitely consider it.

    natural bfp June 2012 - mc 5.5 weeks; 5 cycles clomid; 2 unsuccessful ivf.
