Hi

i'm on my 7th attempt too! i wouldn't worry too much about the brown bleeding or the timing of it, a friend of mine had this type of thing on and off for a while when she was pregnant and she now has a baby girl.

i've got my fingers crossed for you.

Hi the motility shouldn't matter for ICSI as they don't have to swim anywhere, they are injected right into the egg. We are using surgically retrieved sperm which don't move, they just "twitch". on my first attempt, 18 of my 23 eggs fertilised so it obviously works! can't say about the implantation ...

My friend's husband took the Marilyn Glenville ones and his sperm count increased dramatically. he saw two consultants in order to get two opinions and they both agreed. My friend then conceived naturally (after years of trying and 4 failed ivf treatments). Tragically she lost the baby but of course...

hi

i too suffer with these and nothing works better than perfume. spray it on your fingertip then rub it over the coldsore, several times a day. stings at first but dries it out so quickly. totally safe to use aswell.

Hi i had a nightmare with this drug too. once you have drawn up the sterile water, push the needle into the first ampoule and DON'T depress the plunger, a drop will probably drip off the needle and that is all you need to mix it. then draw up the liquid created. repeat with each ampoule until you ha...
