Hello everyone, I'm very new to this (well, both IVF and internet forums). I'm wondering if anyone could answer a question. I'm originally from Oregon but live in the Czech Republic now. We have very high quality health care here so I'm not particularly worried that the lab or clinic we are going to (which many people from the west come to because it is well known and relatively cheap even if you don't have Czech insurance) wouldn't be technically good at what they do. But there is one problem here. The dr.s are very very uncommunicative. They tell you nothing. Only: Come back in x number of days. Take this injection. Not why. Never what is planned next. No calendar.
As a result, I've done a lot of reading on my own. That can tell me the basic ideal cycle but not the complications. Now, I've been through the EC in July and fertilised 6 embryos with ICSI. They're all frozen now because they said I had endometrial hyperplasia all of the sudden (even though I never had any history of that before). Well, actually they didn't really tell me that. I found it in a medical report they gave me and so I looked it up. They just told me I couldn't do the ET that month. Anyway, hyperplasia is something you usually get if you don't ovulate, but I have always had my AF so regular, the moon probably schedules her phases according to me.
So, after I was really assertive and demanded some answers the dr.s grudgingly admitted that it was probably a reaction to the stims.
I thought that was OK and I'd just survive another month. But now this month they say I'm not ovulating, so they can't do the ET in Aug. either. Has anyone ever heard of this. Could the stims mess up someone who normally ovulates really well??? Do they put you off for a few months afterwards?
In any case, I'm battling a little let-down depression at the moment. I guess it is probably a preview of what you are all calling a BFN would be like. I think I'm trying to look on the bright side and figure this is at least preparing me so I won't be too overly excited to be let down later. I'm glad I found this site. It looks like there is a good thing going here. Having a community of women dealing with this is a great thing. I'm sending some positive energy out to all those who are waiting for results right now.
