Hi everyone

My name's Caroline, from Leeds, and I'm just in the middle of my first IVF cycle after an abandoned cycle last September. This was due to OHSS from having PCOS - 60 follicles!

We only got 2 viable eggs from this cycle, from 30 follicles and I'm currently having to take daily anti-clotting drugs and Gestone injections, which are really tough.

Has anyone else experienced difficulties with these injections or am I just being a wimp? I've asked for pessaries if the test is positive in two weeks time.

Hi Caroline and welcome here! Sorry to hear your previous cycle was cancelled. It's really frustrating, isn't it? I also had the same problem on our first IVF attempt with over 50 follicles. I'm taking a lower dosage this time and hope that it will be OK.

If you go over the the General Forum you'll be able to join one of the threads there for people having tmt/testing soon.

Good luck to you this time round!! You will soon get used to the needles as well. :wink:
