Ally, that does suck so much . It's great that you are determined, don't let them beat you.
On the positive side you've already lost 5kg, keep up the great work! Dr's can be so... arrrgh! My Aunty once said there is a reason why some specialists become specialists, because they have no people skills... and she see's a lot of specialists - not fertility though.
I hope everyone has a lovely day.

Hi everyone, I would love to jump in to this thread if I can!
I'm 29, DH30 and DH has 1% Morphology.
We are going to FS on Monday to sign all the consent forms and book in our very first ICSI treatment. I've read every piece on information I can get my hands on, so now my head is swimming with overwhelming statistics and facts... I'm petrified and excited all at once.
We've been told that they will be transferring 1 embryo on this cycle and we are using the GnRH Antagonist treatment (not 100% sure what that means yet, but I'll ask FS on Monday i guess!)
Its nice to have so many people that I can relate to in here.. when we found out that we would have to turn to ICSI, I felt completely alone. Glad I found you guys!

Hello and welcome Ellie82, Ttcmummy,midnite01, hoping4bubs, squeak4123 and any new ladies I may have missed
Ally, I am also concerned about the weight issue...
I get that the healthier we are the better chance we have of falling pregnant and staying pregnant... and the healthier the bubs will be.
I'm rather overweight myself and thanks to my PCOS it’s damn hard to shed.
But my IVF clinic has NEVER even mentioned my weight, let alone suggested it was an issue.
It seems to concern me more than them.. I said to DH.. "Do you think out FS just hasn’t noticed how overweight I am... why isn’t he demanding I lose some?"
I’ve brought it up myself, and all our FS has said was he tells all his patients that are above normal weight to try and loose 5 - 10%... because it can only help!
Are you going through the public system? I’ve heard that they are very strict on BMIs.
I’m so impressed with your 5kg loss... keep up the good work girlfriend

Hi ladies! Mind if I join? I've just started my 3rd ivf round on Monday. Excited that I've started another cycle but scared to hell at the same time that this won't work. Ive just changed clinics and FS so hoping a fresh opinion and protocol is wot we need to get a BFP.
Ally I'm really sorry about wots happening to you, you might of already mentioned it but r u able to c a different specialist?
Also for everyone that's scared with needles like me a tip I got given on another thread was to ice the area first. Works wonders and I never feel it that way!

My DH and I will be cycling in Jun/July - with our egg donor!
We've had three IVF cycles, all with terrible results so hopefully different eggs will make a difference.
I'm still waiting for my AF to arrive so I can start on the pill (to synchronize). I'm 37 days into my cycle - my body must be withdrawing for IVF drugs!

Hi Della - good luck with the jabbing. Don't be nervous - I actually almost feel normal jabbing because it means I'm actively trying to do something. Just remember that you will blow up like a balloon at some stage!!
I'm currently on three needles a night and progress to four tonight! Lucky me. Hopefully I find out tomorrow when pick-up is which will be good.
