Hi Potato lover,
Thanks for your advise. I will try to test on D14 which is tomorrow and really hope will get pleasant surprise. I'm not too sure why my doc wanted me to test on the 3rd week, maybe he do not want to stress me over testing again n again. I will update you whether is it a good or bad new ya.....all the best to you too!!! we both jia you!!!!
Ya I dont think it's fair to you that you had to skip the cycle because it falls on a sat, it's like wasting all the money n pain incurred. Actually I also didn't see my gyane that often, I am doing SO-IUI but only see my gynae twice a month. He will see me on Day10 or 12, then scan n tell me when he predicts my eggs wld be mature n we fixed n appt for the procedure, I did my last one on a sat. He then gave me the triggershot n asked me to inject at hm 30+ hours before the procedure to make sure the eggs are released within the next 48hrs, then just nice for the procedure. After that go hm n rest n when my menses comes, call n make appt for Day 12 while start injections at hm frm Day 2.
But I agree that it's better to get a doc who specializes in assisted reproduction, not only that I think they are more experience in this area. On the emotional part, when I went KK last time to see the doc, I feel terrible seeing so many preg women or women w newborns, I dont know how to explain. But when I went to a private fertility clinic n saw people who are trying to concieve, taking injections, etc, I feel that I am not alone. N when I see preg women or newborns there, I feel encouraged cos I wld like to think that they have successfully conceived thru assisted reproduction n maybe one day I wld be like them. Maybe I think too much but this is how I feel.
I was trying to make an appointment with Dr Sheila Loh but her appointment is full till next yr Mar...Guess she is just too popuplar. Worst of all, even my current gynae is going on leave...
Anyway i manage to make an appointment with Dr LK Yap tomorrow at Mt E. He is recommendated by one of my friend. She say that he is one of the popular fertility specialist. Gg to give it a try cos if i dont catch this cycle, then i think i have to wait till feb.
Really hope that i can do it this cycle...
FYI.... Do take note that mt e charges r very high.... So doc fee including when you r pregnant till give burth mt e charges r the highest among mt A , Thomson Medical Center.... Cos you might like to do a bit of calculations first before deciding ... If not later end up burning a big deep hole in your pocket =)
I dont wanna wait Tts why I never choose Kandang Kerbau Hospital ...Cos my free of charge in Thomson Medical Center is moving in dec do my ivf is in jan... So very good =)
No.. you are not thinking too much cos this is exactly how i feel too. It's true that at least when we are in a fertility clinic we know that we are not alone. N alot of people dont understand that for people like us who doesn't conceive easily needs lots of love and support and sometime all we need is a listening ear. But when you share with people who can conceive so easily they will always tell you not to think about it and it will happen. Sorry to say that.. its all B.Sh*t. Hehehe..
Anyway... which Dr did you go to?
Hehe.. Sorry what do you mean by free of charge?
You mean some doc will make you sign up with them till giving birth? Oh i am not aware of that.. Thanks for telling me. Anyway i will go for my appointment first and see how it goes. If the charges are really too high then i think i will search for other option.
Sorry is doc in charge.. Cos my comp down I'm using my phone can't really type well haha.... Not say sign package but usually is same doc that you will follow till birth cos it's better cos they know your condition you c.... For my case is cos my gynae recommend the fertility specialist to me... So I go there ivf n once pregnancy stable he will refer me back to my own gynae... Tts the good thing... Cos fertility specialist cost is higher also.... So if you do not have any gynae refer will stick to same doc which is the ivf doc thru out... =)
I totally totally understand what you mean. How can we be making efforts every month, have ovulation predictor kits to help us optimize our chances, n have to count days to eat med, or jab ourselves everyday or every alt days, to "just dont think about it" n hope it happens? It's really B.Sht. N I hate friends who told me that I need to count the days n do it around my ovu periods, i was like HELLO! I have been trying for 3+ yrs! What makes you think I dont even know about counting days...? It's the super basic for people who are trying to conceive. N she would tell me she did that conceive within 3 mths, n this friend of mine went thru abortion like 7 times before n i never even did once in my life! Or another friend who told me whichever time during the month as long as she has unprotected sex, she will get preg. Duh! So I gave up talking to friends
Sorry so long-winded n forgot to answer your question. Lol! I was seeing this doc frm Mount E but since march til now I am seeing Dr LC Foong frm gleneagles. I feel he is quite professional n good. Luckily he closely monitor w monthly scans n realized I have some negative reactions to clomids. Imagine the gynae at KK just prescribed me 3-4 mths of clomids n ask me to try taking that for few mths to see if I can conceive then go back to see him in 3 mths time. Luckily I didn't follow cos I was quite unhappy w that gynae immediately after my appt n decided to seek 2nd opinion right after, if not my uterus wld be so full of fluid frm the clomid n prevents me frm conceiving even more.
Today is my D14 past IUI, I have test this morning and it showed negative....quite upset ....I think i should wait till next week n test again if my period not here yet.
Hugs... dont lose all hopes cos I heard that sometimes even if you are preg, the index has not multiply fast enough or high enough to be detected. But if you menses come ,I usually try to see it as at least it quickly comes so I can quickly start next cycle of treatment. It's really not easy, hang in there n do what you feel comfortable. Hugs...
Lol... I m also as long winded as you... Hahaha. Yap it's true that family n relatives always attack the woman.. Esp for my case cos I m quite skinny so they always say must eat more if not cannot conceive. N my in laws think that the problem is me, but luckily my hubby is protective... He actually tells everybody that the problem is not me it's him. I really salute his braveness n appreciate what he have done for me. It really takes some stress off me. I am also quite lucky cos most of my close friends are really supportive too... They will always check on my progress. Or maybe I should say... I stay away from people who talks b.sht to me. Maybe you should do that too.
Btw which Dr did you go to at Mt E previously? Cos am currently seeing a Dr from Mt E too. Am seeing Dr Yap. How much does your current gynae charge for consultation and you/s?
Is my cycle really too short?
As for dear husband, the previous SA says that its extremely viscous, 35% motility, 10% morphology but quite good counts.
Hi I'm new here . I had my iui on 26 nov now resting at home...very interesting to read all the experience . Hope the baby dust fall on me and to everyone in tis forum.
