    6 perfect blastocysts frozen. 2 at day5, 4 at day 6. Embryologist was very happy. 3 weeks to find out result.

    Oh how wonderful! Shame the results will take 3 weeks though.
    How are you feeling OHSS wise and emotionally?

    Default Geelong Monash IVF

    Hi all hope it's ok to join in here. I've just booked an appointment to see Dr Prue in October.
    Been TTC #2 for four months but due to my age (36), having long irregular cycles and having timed DTD perfectly the whole time with charting etc but not seeing results my GP agreed we should see FS sooner rather than later.
    I've been taking herbal medicines for two months and getting acupuncture at Newtown for a month, hoping to see my cycle shorten soon!
    Anyhow just wondering if anyone can give some insight into how it works at the start of the FS journey, and how Dr Prue is to deal with, especially since I have a strong preference for natural therapies (and home birth).
    I'm open to drugs like clomid I guess, just want my bubba no 2!

    ETA: I've had a scan this week that shows nothing abnormal and blood tests were all normal range for where I was in my cycle.

    Welcome @rhee1980,

    You are most welcome to join us, I'm just sorry that you have to.

    I didn't have any appointments with Dr Prue so I can't give specifics. But a clinic as a whole are where very open to natural therapies. I used herbal supplements and acupuncture the whole way through. Newtown and Monash actually worked together so I had pre/post transfer acupuncture completed in the rooms at Monash.
    Monash also advertise the Bump+ program on their webpage which is a nutrition/supplement/wellbeing program so they very much see your health and wellbeing as an important factor as well as the clinical side.
    Monash continue to see you until you're 7 weeks pregnant, then they 'discharge' you from them. My Dr actually suggested the midwifery group practice program over an OB. I'd highly recommend them too. I'm not sure if they do home births though, but they supported me through a no interventions waterbirth in the hospital.
    Feel free to ask questions or just let out your emotions here. It is a tough time and it's often easier to discuss it here than to friends and family.

    Thanks so much! I've got the birth side covered, will again go through the independent midwives at the Birth House
    What should I expect my first appointment? Do they order a heap of tests? Or since I've already had a scan and a load of bloods will they go straight to suggesting something like clomid?
    The good thing is my appt is Oct 20 which should be about CD1 of next cycle so will be starting with a fresh cycle

    It was just over a year ago so I can't remember an exact timeline.

    But I had a lot of tests done beforehand, and they were happy to use those results rather than do them all again.

    I had one cycle between seeing the Dr and when we could get an appointment for the mandatory counselling session so we tried clomid with a trigger shot. And the cycle after that we started our IVF round. So it was all quite quick.

    Thank you, I've read through the thread and it sounds like the timing was just right and your bubba was coming to you then no matter what
    I'm 99.9% sure I'm ovulating ok so I guess it will be down to tubes being clear and egg quality. I'll keep you posted. Who knows, might get my bfp this cycle and not need the appointment at all!
