ScubaGal, they call it HA-ICSI at my clinic and we are using it. According to the information sheet it says "mature sperm bind to HA (hyaluronan) on the ICSI dish.Sperm that are immature and have high DNA damage do not bind to the HA and are not used. HA ICSI allows us to select sperm that are functional, mature and of good DNA Integrity". Hope this helps.

ScubaGal Sometimes I wake up up in the early hours and get bad anxiety over the fact that I am trying for a second one, I do wonder if having a second is a good idea at times when one is overwhelming. PND is so common for a reason...... I flew on my own to the UK over xmas and I was a bit more sympathetic with the parents on the flight but I was glad to get off that plane and I was pretty happy to have left my own screaming gremlin behind.
@Butterfly39 sounds like those follies are revving up nicely! Glad its looking good.
@cheekyhumour good luck today, hope you get a good fert rate
AFM I've been trying to track when I'm due to ovulate (to keep my mind off my cancelled cycle and how long it is to the next) and I've started spotting. I shouldn't get my period for at least another 2 weeks so I have no idea what is going on. Grr.

@ScubaGal I can really relate to your reservations about this. I come home to our peaceful quiet flat after visiting the (rather full-on) nieces and nephews and think – do I really want to give this up?! I think it would have been different for me if we had TTC for ages first and had all the disappointment and hope that went with that, all the while desperately wanting a baby. As it was, we were basically told after my endo surgery that we should get cracking, so we kind of felt like it was now or never whether we were ready or not. But I also agree with @Amiracleforme that part of my ambivalence is probably a protective thing. It makes it easier to deal with when your emotions aren’t letting you want it too much.
@cheekyhumour Fertility yoga sounds great! I reckon I would love that. Crossing fingers for some good fertilisation and healthy embryos for you.
@ladybug14 Good luck! Lots of sticky vibes coming your way.
AFM, I saw my FS this morning and picked up my drugs. He did a quick scan, and lo and behold found another endometrioma. I only had my endo surgery a year ago so I’m really quite bummed that it’s back. Mind you, I kind of suspected I still had it given my symptoms, but at the same time I still had hope that it wouldn’t recur. FS said we won’t do anything about it at this point as it shouldn’t interfere with the IVF and it’s only 4cm, but we will monitor it and after this is all done, I’ll have to go back in for more surgery. Sigh.
My first injection is tomorrow morning. I think I’ll be ok with it after the first one– just a mental hurdle to cross! Yikes.
Thinking of everyone stimming, EPU’ing and waiting for results today.

Babygirl7 - Re syneral - poor DH has been sheltering in a bunker basically while I've been on it ... It's been the worst cycle emotionally for me - short fuse - I feel really sorry for menopausal women now as it puts you into chemical menopause essentially. Now I understand why women in their 50s are not to be trifled with !
But I can't bash the syneral now because scan yesterday showed 19 eggs but only 14 are probably going to be suitable...... Amazing what a different protocol can do.
re fertility yoga and acupuncture - not doing it at the moment but planning on starting acupuncture again and massage as it certainly had a well being component and my embryo numbers and quality seemed better on it. My new fs also has me on dong quai, melatonin, vit e,d,c,zinc, folic acid, fish oil, coenzyme q.

Good luck @ladybug14 for your lucky blasty!
LOL @Butterfly39 re hiding in a bunker - poor guy, it sounds pretty rough on both of you.
@MrsChino and @Bongley yeah I think it's something to do with IVF being so deliberate it's like I feel an extra pressure that I'll have to be the most perfect zen earth mother who loves all kids when actually I just sort of stumbled into this stuff. I though we'd get married, stop using the withdrawal method and then just accidentally get on the roller coaster of having kids.
Instead it's so deliberate that I feel like people (I don't know who really it's all in my head) will get all judgy-pants if I don't cope well with the tougher parts of parenting - it's that comment 'wow you must really really want kids'... Really I'm probably just as guilty as any new mum would be of looking up fashionable maternity wear and not really prepared for nappies and hard work...
I also get really angry about young women you see on TV shows who abuse their bodies (and sometimes their kids) and get pregnant so easily, it's so unfair - my body is a freakin temple by comparison.
Anyway, whatevs, I'm feeling pretty positive today, I'm telling myself that my pregnancy will be a really good one and some positive thinking that this is going to work and I'm doing a really good, brave job so far.

@Butterfly39 glad your new protocol is giving you better results. I too am doing a different protocol this cycle. Fingers crossed.
@ScubaGal I feel ya hun, I too don't understand how it can be so easy for others but so hard for the ones who are paying so much, trying so hard and deserve to have a baby aswell. Just so not fair. It is one thing I don't think I will ever understand or come to terms with. I just keep thinking 'Positivity' to get me through.
