    Tiggzie, I hope they can book you in for yours before the year is out so you can recover before Christmas

    Ella, I'm glad your doctor is doing all the tests you're asking for

    Afm, I was able to book in for my scan today for my first ever frozen embryo transfer, yay. I have a scan on 24th Oct & if it's good it should go ahead the following Thurs or Fri

    The issue is we can't afford it, even low cost ones aren't an option for us at this point in time. We don't have any savings either and we are on one income so it's hard getting any spare money after bills and rent and food etc

    oh Star, i wish you had all available options open to you. A few people at my clinic (WFC- one of the cheapest) managed to do it with no savings. They just got an increase in their credit card limit and put it all on there. Once you reach the medicare threshold the out of pocket is pretty minimal. Huge hugs, wish there was an easier answer xx

    Fs called today about my blood test and my vitamin D is low, I have been reading about it and apparently it can cause miscarriages and infertility, I wonder why I haven't been tested for this before, has anyone else been tested for it?

    I have cinder and I have low vitamin d. My dr said it wouldn't affect me getting pregnant though? I take vitamin d and calcium tablets now to help it, I haven't been retested though

    For my 8 week bloods my vit d levels were 22 normal is 50 and above so it was really low. It didn't affect my ability to get pg but it can lead to issues with bone development once pg.

    And when the gyno did my bloods he didn't check for that. He only looked at all the hormones.

    Yes, I've been tested for vitamin d - one of the first tests my fs sent me for. Amongst those first lot of blood tests fs said my endo levels were normal (CA-125) and unlikely that I have endo - but I'm not convinced. Hence why I'll be demanding a lap! Has anyone else been tested for endo through bloods?

    Star - there was an article in the Queensland Courier Mail a couple of weeks ago about low cost/low stimulation IVF clinics that were recently trialled in Qld and NSW - costs start from $800 and they have had just as much success as conventional IVF methods. I'm surprised that you haven't been for a dye/lap test previously?

    Rocky - good luck for next week!! i'll have everything crossed for you!!

    Yep I was tested for vitamin d. Not with my first fs, but when I changed Dr's it was one of the first tests he sent me for. I was low as well. He also tested my iodine levels and I was low there too.

    My gp suggested I do a hsg and gave me referral forms but it was going to cost me around $370 to get it done so I didn't because we didn't have the money. When I first saw my gyno he said that a hsg and lap would be pointless because I've had no stds and I have no signs of endo. He still thinks it's completely pointless but is willing to let me do it after I pushed for it.
