adopting from Russia or Poland

Hi there, Im about to have my last IVF and am trying stay positive but with a poor ovarian response we have 2 options, egg donation or adoption.

Do you feel like everyone is getting pregnant except you?

Hi everyone Im an "expat" living in Switzerland and as such am constantly surrounded by expats and find it difficult to meet locals by the very nature of the fact probably because I dont have children which makes it easier to meet people. All the expat wives are falling pregnant around me and althou...

IVF drugs query

thanks for that - very helpful. also, just read that aspirin is no longer recommended for IVF as doesnt help - ironic as my dr "forgot" to give me this for my first IVF and has now put me on it for preparation for my 2nd attempt. Anyone have any further knowledge about aspirin and its benefits or la...

thanks for all these replies - it seems like I dont have to worry too much about not being shown anything on the monitor then and will just have to take his word for it that they are in there!

Do you always see the embryos on the monitor after transfer?

Im about to start my 2nd IVF attempt so will ask my doctor when I see him but the first attempt I was not shown the monitor so that I could see the embryos when he transferred them back - I am having treatment in Switzerland and he told me that "they dont do that at the clinic". However I have heard...

Questions to remember to ask your IVF doctor

As some of you know I have my first main appointment with my IVF doctor next week - I have already had 3 unsuccessful IUIs with him so know him and trust him. However I know that its best to write down all questions so you dont forget to ask things. I have some already prepared but if anyone has a l...

I want to know if I can go when I start the treatment but I think Im going to just give...

IVF and the gym

Hi Im about to start my first IVF treatment and cannot really find anything meaningful on the internet about whether or not I should go to the gym. My dr. says "carry on as normal" but dont do anything too strenuous but does this mean I can carry on doing normal gym routines such as tread mill walki...

IVF and Acupuncture

Thanks Kim - that is really helpful. I am going to start and be positive! One problem I may have though is that my acupuncture dr. is not in the same town as my IVF doctor and I have heard that you should have the acupuncture within 30 minutes before and after the transfer - so did you have your acu...
