Dear Everyone, I have posted on this board on and off, dipping between cycles - and feel that I am coming to an end. I have managed a +ve but m/c at 8 wks. and in total have had 5 IVFs (part NHS funded). The last one was a short protocol with a new clinic, which has a very good reputation. The consu...

I have had 4 IVFs with a +ve and m/c and about to start a short protocol with a different clinic. I too have responded differently, sometimes poorly. The first time I had an amazing 8...

Dear Sally, my love! I am turning the big four O - in a few months time, so I am sorry if the old age thing upset you. BUT!!! Apart from being a sprightly 31 yr old, I should have added that this clinic, has had fantastic results and their research simply supports short protocol. I hope that cheers ...

Hya,<br><br>If it helps at all, one friend of mine, who went through it 3 times, said that EC was actually rather nice. I didn't find it bad at all. Actually could see on the scanner what was going on. Mind you, threw up afterwards, hastily ate something too soon! The injections are OK too. I person...

Message for Kate W

Hya Kate,<br>I'll be cycling for the third time in a few weeks, but happened to spot your message in the SCB7 board. I noticed that you were already doing blastocysts and it was your first try. I was surprised, cos although I have heard that the success rate was good, it is rarely used until patient...

On that website it said I should have that amount per follicle! I think only one follicle has responded to the Gonal F boost (prior to ec) ...
