Is this the April IVF thread?
It's so quiet!!!
This is my first IVF cycle. My 5th day of gonalf injections and just started orgalutran for the first time today. Took hubby 3 goes to get it in! aieeee! and it stung and itched! I did two stimulated IUI cycles last year then had about ?9 months break in order to lose 7.5kg in order to start IVF. The break terrifies me... how many eggs do I have left now?! And I'm 9 months older! About to hit 35! eeep!
@AtticusBean - I have a needle phobia with fainting response and the gonalf injections are awesome! I watched a youtube video on someone doing it which helped me. I got hubby to do it the first two times so I could get used to what it would feel like and then I took over. I prefer doing it myself so you can go as slow as you need etc.
@babymchicken - yay thats grea - 5 embies!
Can you guys tell me what the egg retrieval is like? I'm a little worried about it as I hate the whole needle in the back of the hand thing, I hate the idea of being sedated to sleep and I hate the idea of being in there alone without a support person. How do you feel afterwards? whats the pain like? ET doesnt worry me as it's the same as IUI.
Anyone else on clexane?
