First IVF on NHS

Postby Mitzy » Mon Mar 20, 2006 9:12 pm

Hi, I am new to this forum, and would like to introduce myself, I am 40 next month and DH is 51 in June. We have been married 17 years and I had a natural ectopic approx 15years ago, and my tube had totally disintigrated, I found out 2 years ago my other was totally blocked. We have started our NHS funded IVF, and I am currently on my 11th day of downregs, and I return for my next scan on the 29th. I have just had my first night sweat last night, and wonder how others feel on downregs?
I am also a bit worried about having a high FHS, it is 17.5, I was told 10 is normal, I mentioned that upto starting the IVF I was on hormone tablets and was told this could have been the cause for it being so high.
I am also waiting for my AF to start, could my bursaline injections cause me to be late? as I am 3 days late now.

Hi Mitzy

Welcome. When I first down regged I also had sweats and horrendous mood swings. I think I was a day or two late for AF but when it did come it came from Hell!!! so be prepared. I think because everything is shutting down ready for the "stimming" part you have a good clear out.

Come and post over on the general forum site where I'm sure you will find loads of support from us girls.

Good luck to you.

Hello Mitzy. I, too got night sweats with Lupron. My period was a couple days late - but it was very light. However I had some break through bleeding when I first started Lupron shots (I was also on a cycle of birth control pills). When i reported the break through bleeding to my doctor's office, they told me to expect a very light period, or even no period at all. So I guess everyone is different. Good luck to you!!
