    Hi @Amywantsababy - I'm currently breastfeeding my 2 week old DD that was conceived on my first ICSI at RPA. It was the most local clinic to me ( walking distance ) which makes SO much difference when your doing bloods and scans every other day. I waited 5 months for initial appt. They then sent me and DH off for tests and we were advised to make a follow up appt for 4 weeks later. At the 2nd appt we were booked in for a cycle with my next AF. The good thing is that once your in their system the waiting isn't much at all.. If you have any more questions feel free to ask. I found some of the midwifes a bit brisk but the cost and convenience weighed in for me over bedside manner. Best of luck to you!!

    Thanks so much amiracleforme! You really made my day - evidence of success DH & I have our initial appointment on Thursday - I'm nervous but excited. We're finally on the road to possible success! I will most probably definitely have questions for you after Thursday. Thanks again.

    Hi @Corbes I did a short antagonist cycle but that's because I'm under 35. From memory ( and my memory is pretty bad these days so don't quote me! ) they usually do a long down reg as they can plan EPU better.. They don't EPU at weekends. All obviously depends on individual case though. When's your appt?

    Yes they prefer long cycle but if u need like me I have really high amh level and fsh level they can do short cycle.

    Amiracle- what's ur antagonist cycle protocol ? Did u use orgalutron to stop ovaluting? I asked them they say some spray for trigger.normally antagonist cycle is involve gonal -f , orgalutron and ovdriel for trigger.

    I have my first appointment tomorrow - so nervous!! This probably sounds silly but could someone please explain an antagonist cycle vs a 'long' cycle. There is so much I don't know & I'm starting to feel overwhelmed by it all.

    Hi @Amywantsababy
    A short or 'Antagonist' cycle means you start injecting on the 2nd day of AF. It means the whole cycle is only a month long. It's usually used for people with a good AMH ( egg reserve ) and younger people.
    A 'long down regulated' cycle is used for people who are older or have low egg reserve. It was the original way of doing IVF as gives more control. It basically ripens the eggs much slower. My understanding is you go on the contraceptive pill for two weeks to bring all your hormones right 'down' and then medication starts. The whole thing takes about 6 weeks ( again don't quote me tho as I didn't do the long down reg! )
    Good luck for your appointment!!
    How long have you been TTC? Is it MFI also? What have the previous test results said?

    I took Gonal F for 5 days and then I started Orgalutran. I over stimulated though so used the Syranel spray for trigger. They then froze all my embryos and I had a FET the following month.

    Thanks amiracle - that makes sense now! We have been ttc for 2.5 years. When tested 18 months ago, DH had some irregular morphology- but it wasn't significant in number. I have endo & had a laparoscopy 18 months ago - so I am conscious that I may need another lap (or even hormone treatment to suppress the endo for a few months - which was suggested by my last obgyn). So today I am speculating we will be asked to retest everything. Arg so nervous!!!

    Default RPA fertility clinic

    Sounds like you're all over it! RPA will need to do their own tests unless you were with Genea. They sometimes waive really recent tests. My DH had just literally had a sperm test but RPA asked for another one. What times your appt? Good luck!

    Have you been through any fertility treatment at all so far? Which clinic have you been through?

    "The best at what they do, but not people pleasers."

    From H. He and his ex loved how knowledgeable the staff were but their beside manner left a lot to be desired.

    I find that with most doctors, nurses and specialist though... (No offence intended to those in the industry, but has been every experience I have had).
