Hi all. Ive been through two failed IVF cycles with ICIS at City Fertility Centre. We have now changed to repromed but I had some issues. Just before my cycle started I got an Ovarian Cyst (6cm) which was very painful and I had slight bleeding and cramps for a month. It ended up bursting and I ended up in Women's and Children's hospital and sent home with endone. We started our cycle two months later but we had some bleeding after sex after I had started the hormone injections. I was quite concerned and didn't feel comfortable going through with the cycle of my body wasn't right. Unfortunately our FS was in Whyalla and I could not speak with him. The nurses promised me a phone call but the next thing I knew we received a booking for egg collection through the portal and this was at 5:40pm on a Friday and theatre booking was for Monday at 6:45am so not going forward wasn't an option as I had to way to contact anyone. When I woke up from egg collection I only got 4 eggs (1st Ivf was 8, 2nd was 16 eggs). So I was pretty upset as I felt it was the case that my body wasn't right.
When I got teary in the recovery room my FS came and spoke to me. He then decided not to do a fresh transfer as we should investigate the bleeding. 2 of the embryos were highly fragmented and 2 we ok.
He froze them at day 4 as we hadn't had much luck previously getting to blastocyst. he did a biopsy and it came back fine so he said to go ahead.
So now I'm waiting for AF (and it's been 30 days) I keep thinking maybe I should hold off until I'm healthier (fitter etc) or maybe this long cycle being 30 days means my body isn't right again.
I'm feeling really dismayed and unfortunately we were really ripped off from the first two cycles ($16 put of pocket) and that is all on credit so we are really stuck.
We just really need some good luck and I can't even let myself believe this time will work but I have to hope. Keep on hoping. Thanks for allowing me to share my story.
