Hi @jaydee32. Yes used Clexane in my previous IVFs but its been a long time. This time with Penny at Serum I will be using it as well as I have immune issues. First time its been addressed properly. So I hope it helps. I'm ok with injections on myself. Luck as DH would be useless. Can't wait to get started on this cycle 😄
How long till you go?
Hi @Vixjc. My donor starts between 18 and 22 so early next month. Penny said she will give me the dates as soon as the donor starts. I'm a bit anxious as I'm such a planner and feel like I'm just going along for the ride on this one. Let tge ride begin 😊
Well yesterday was quite an adventure... I flew to Brisbane to see a naturopath recommended by a friend. I've been ill lately and obviously want to be my best health for my future pregnancy! Very impressed with what the naturopath recommended. He showed genuine concern, very thorough and wants to see me again the day we fly to Greece! So we'll see how it all goes. I only have 4 weeks till we head over...
Today I see my GP and get a Zoladex injection. Yay! One step closer! I will also get referrals for my next 2 scans (for lining thickness) and need to get a script for DH - antibiotic. The clinic wants him to take an antibiotic for 7 days before providing a sperm sample. Has anyone heard of that before?

Hi Cherry, my DH was required to take antibiotics during cycles in Aus and OS, I think it's a belts and braces approach?
Good luck to all the girls travelling shortly. It is at times overwhelming.
I'm glad to see that the naturopath helped @CherryCP My sister is a naturopath and she has been an amazing wealth of knowledge and advised on vitamins and things that I needed to do. I am also a big fan of acupuncture which I think really helped me. @Kitkats and @Vikjc I still cant bring myself to do my clexane injections. I still make my partner do them and feel that it is his contribution. He is also a policeman doing shiftwork but I am seriously tempted to go to the station when I need them done to avoid doing it myself. I know that if I have to take the Clexane for up to 12-14 weeks I am sure that I will eventually have to do it but until then... @AnnaMM I think you might be over in Athens currently. Hope you are doing well.
