you'are not the only one....the 1st time when gynae very-scan...i was shocked....then i 'EeEEeEEeEE'.....dear husband thought its very pain lehhh.....then gynae shoot me back "you've to get used to gynae visits, most of the time, they will very-scan" .......zzzzzzzzzzzz.......maybe cos i was feeling very uncomfortable, then she got pekchek and find me incorporative....tats why say such ting......
tsk tsk tsk......
got HSG test...its worse....you've to open your legs big big...then they insert the tube in and inject the dye.......you've to lie there while they check using those x-ray machine...but you also can see the "tv" of your tube, the dye etc.....at least, can divert your attention abit.....
my HSG was done by a guy sm more lehh...no choice, no female doc on duty on that day....but of cos, got a female nurse with me laaaaaa
lucky! the results showed that my tubes r ok...
but before i receive my results, i went 2 consult my chinese sinseh 2 get some traditional chinese medicine, she told me that my tubes r ok.
wow! so 'shen qi' ! fr ' mai', can koe tis type of thing ...
May I know who is your gynae? Can recommend to me?
I was thinking of doing HSG but heard it was very painful.
Worse still, I cant even do vaginal scan or pap smear, it was very painful to me.
Happy New Year. This is my 1st post.
Going for my second attempt at IUI next week in Singapore. I am now living overseas...so you can imagine the cost for me
First attempt did not even materialize due to low LH and I ovulated before doc even knows! I was on 75 Gonal-F for 14 days. Blood tests started D5. Strangely, doc only asked for Estrodiol and later for LH to be tested. No FSH. Can anyone shed some light on what normally gets included in blood tests?
My doc has a good rep (at least from success rate), but always seem super busy - fingers crossed this time.
can i ask which gynae you'r seeing????
i thought towards your ovulation date, you need to visit the gynae daily liaooo???
for my case, i see her twice a week...but when my eggs grow bigger n bigger, i visit almost evyday...she will also tell me that i should b ovulating within 3-4days.......then she will do blood test too (to see if i've slurge--how to you spell it arr).........
then the day before my IUI, she will inject that ting (aiyaaa, suddenly 4got the name)...its to make your forlicas release the eggs.........
Thanks for the info. My doc practices in Gleneagles.
One question: in your blood test, do you remember what were included? FSH/ Estrodiol/ LH?
Mine had no FSH and LH was included at a fairly late stage.
my gynae is also Dr Fong !! I frequent his clinic at paragon...
been trying to conceive for 6 mths but still no news... currently on 2nd course of clomid, already increased dosage..
can check with you, did you had any ovulation jabs from Dr Fong before? cause he suggested that i can consider the jabs if clomid doesn't work... please advise..
I am doing IUI this cycle in January.
Lawla, the injection you've gotten to release the egg is call HCG.
Yes, this will be my first IUI cycle, been on Clomid since day 2 to help super-ovulate and will go in for HCG injection on day 11 then IUI on day 13.
HSG ... good to get that done! I did mine with a male lab asst, 1 female nurse + my male gynae. I prefer male gynae, women always think its not painful, males are more gentle.. :P
baby dust to everyone!!!
Read our trying to concieve journey here
Ovulation will likely start 7 days after the last day you take clomid.. therefore, I am going in for scan and trigger (if neccessary) injection on day 11 and iui on day 13 because I finished my last clomid on day 6 (so 6 + 7 days later = 13).
Usually trigger shot given 1 or 2 days before IUI depending on condition. SOme doc feel that its better to do IUI soon after ovulation if its due to male sperm issues and some think IUI on actual ovulation day or one day before is better for normal cases.
I have no ovulation problems and this clomid I guess was given to me to help make the chances of my iui better .
My cycles are very regular so its easy to pinpoint.. have you been doing your own charting?? I think with a few month of BBT charts, its very clear when your iui will be.
Hope this helps.
Anyway, my charts are at http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/smokeyeyes if you'd like them as reference.
Good luck ya!
Sadly, AF came again. Will be going for my first cycle of IUI this month. Based on my last visit to the gynae, doc will put me on injection on Day 4. The tests and scans have shown that I am ovulating normally. Was just curious, what made him decide that I should have injection instead of taking clomid? Is it suppose to enhance chances of pregnancy?
you tried clomid before ?????
for my case n those threads here, most of us tried clomid for about 3mths (cycles)...then noting happen (folicle not growing well etc, not many folicle), then gynae will suggest injection.......
injection is a better med as compared to clomid .......also, injections can produce much more folicles....
also, for IUI, its better to have more folicles yaaaa....tink tats the reason y your gynae suggest injections...
BUT, its always better to consult your gynae n ask him the reason yaaaaa.....you can also understand your body better.......
Thanks for the reply lawla. I've never tried clomid. Guess you're right, for production of more follicles. Will ask him tomorrow.
We have been trying to concieve actively since last July and been on clomid for 2 cycles but stopped for this new cycle..currently CD6..Went for HSG last Nov and found left tube is blocked...would like to do laporscopy.. Any good recommendation to go do the surgery and how's the procedure like & when is the best time to do it? and how much does it cost? Would like to clear it and see if can conceive naturally before proceeding further like doing IUI etc..
Thanks so much!!
I am actually considering IUI too and so I went to see Professor Ng Soon-Chye O&G Partners at Glen E. Has anyone see him? Any feedback would be appreciated.
Hey ladies, are you hubby taking any supplement to boost up the sperm count? In this forum, I just feel that woman are the one having problem which is not always the case right? Perhaps it will help if you get your gynae to give your hubby some supplements? Mine is on 3 types of medication and has to take for 3mths.
Have been on injection for 6 days. Went back for review today. Lining is about 7 mm and eggs about 11 mm. Doubt can conduct IUI on Thursday (original plan). Going back for review on Thursday instead. The nurse was telling me that it has to be around 20mm before we can do IUI. Sighz...wonder if I would ovulate even before the egg reaches 20mm.
i had my IUI done on 16 Jan and it was busted. failed. left with 2 more tries. bitter moment when temperature dropped and I knew AF will likely be arriving 2 days later.
No IUI in feb as day 14 will fall exactly on CNY 1st day and obgyn and lab will not be open. so sad. because of CNY my IUI must delay for a month.
Stress. If 3 times all fail.. either i give up trying to conceive or we must move on to IVF.. but no money. stress. sad....
i also had 2 IUIs but both failed....generally, most gynae will ask you to do IVF if you've failed 2 IUIs...
i did not try IVF yaaa...too costly....
currently, i'm seeing traditional chinese medicine to "regulate" my AF 1st before i decide my next move n at the same time, save more $$$$ ......accordingly to her, IUI is a VERY VERY low chance of striking....she say if i want, go for IVF straight away....dont waste $$$$ on IUI......
IUI is just making sure you got ovulation n injecting the sperms nearer to your egg (so they dont need to swim all the way from the tube to your egg in which during the process, alot of sperms may die etc)......she say no use deeee....
sighzz...i should have see traditional chinese medicine 1st before doing my IUIs .... i spent 8k on my 2 IUIs....if i top up another 4k, i can do IVF leeeee....SIGHZ!!!!!!!!!!!!! if she told me that my IUI chance is low, maybe i wont do IUI liaooo.... but what's done cant b undone....
dont give yourself too much stress yaaaaaa.....dont tink about it leeeee...sayang sayang...
