hey gals, did you try lapor before IVF? Is lapor very painful?
My gynae told me that will give me 2 months till Feb and if not conceive will do lapor. If lapor fail, than do IVF.
your gynae never scan your "below" to check for the egg size????
when i was on clomid, gynae scan below to check how many eggs i've.....she also check the size of the eggs to determine when is my O date.......
that was the 1st cycle...then 2nd cycle, my AF came slightly later n she estimate my O date too....3rd cycle, i was left on my own cos gynae says my O date should b around the same timing since the length of my AF cycle is almost the same.....
but after 3 cycles, sadly to say, i'm not preggie n move on to IUI lohhhh....did 2 IUIs but failed....so now, seeing traditional chinese medicine.......tsk tsk tsk~
Probably you can use a OPK (ovulation predictor kit) to know which exact day you ovulate. Can be bought in pharmacy. After it shows a positive result, you should ML after 12 hours. And I believe should ML as many times as possible within another 12hr window period. (this instruction i got fm nurse)
My own belief is that this method will work unless there is some fertility prob from the male or female side. Alternatively, for a cheaper method, you can also plot your mense dates (preferbably for 3mths if you have irregular mense) in some fertility websites where it will predict your ovulation date base on estimation.
If I rem correctly, the gynae wont know whether you have eggs unless you do IVF bcos the eggs are really being retrieved. From my IVF experience, even though I had 30 over follicles, there were only 20 over eggs being retrieved, and not all eggs are fertilised. So I think egg and sperm quality plays a very impt role for miracle to happen. Unfortunately, this is something which nobody can control except nature.
I have been married for 10 years & currently preggie for 12 weeks
I had tried IUI with no result, IVF with ectopic pregnancy, surgery to removed Pholyp in my uterus, my husband has went through small surgery to increase the sperm counts plus visited many gynae in KK, Mt.E, Glenleagles & TCMs! But all of my 10 years effort did not result to anything!!!
I am pregnant not because of IUI or IVF but because of the injection call "Superflex". its a kind of injection for preparation for IVF.
I got few friends pregnant from this injection but of course you still got to monitor your body temperature & ovulation period during the "superflex injection".
I can recommend the gynae that I am visiting now if you are keen. I visited him 9 years ago but because of the "ex $ fee" that we have paid 9 years ago (we only visited him once 9 years ago), we decided to change gynae, end up i have spent lots of money for the past 9 years with keep changing gynae.
I am visiting this gynae again & it works! I am preggie after the 1 week of "superflex injection"
yah chelsy!! cn dear husband have tis injection to make them relax as well?? cz my dear husband sumtyms tend to get tense up wen they need to work it out hard=) he dint say it for sure but with wht he went thru i cn feel that he always look n feel dissapointed wen my AF comes=(
We have decided for IVF but the gynae adviced that my body, mind & womb got to be "relax" & ready before we start the IVF procedure otherwise the planted embryo might not stick in the lining.
My gynae gave me a body temperature chart for me to mark my daily temperature every morning before I get up from my bed. There is an indicator in the worksheet when you need to intimate. dont need to be frequent lol :P, mine only 3x during that month & it works.
My gynae gave me 2 weeks (altenate day - 6 doses) supply of superflex injection. I only did it for 4x (still got left over 2 doses). The nurse told me to stop the injection since I got preggie before I complete the injection. They will teach you how to do the injection yourself.
I got blood test exactly 3 1/2 weeks after my 1st day of menses. The bloodtest is the inital stage of IVF procedure.
When the gynae told me I dont need to start the IVF procedure because i am 3 1/2 weeks pregnant, I burst & cried because I dont believe I would get pregnant so easily since I had tried IUI & IVF with other gynae but with no result.
The nurse told me dont try to test my urine with the pregnancy kit because the urine HCG will only show after I am 4-5 weeks pregnant.

I think this injection is only for female which will help us to relax our womb & mind.
As for male, only the day surgery, vitamin & injection to increase the sperm quality & count.
Tried dont "do" to frequently otherwise both got no mood when you r ovulating.
1 of them, wife got pregnant 2 months after the surgery without hubby taking any vitamin/ injection.
1 of them, got to take vitamin after the surgery since wife did not ge pregnant 2 months after the surgery. after the surgery + vitamins, wife got pregnant
the other one, wife did not get pregnant 2 months after the surgery, got to take vitamin, no sign in the 3rd month, then hubby must have injection, finally got pregnant.
The gynae said this really depends on each individual person + the workload stress in the office..
i tink nothing is impossible for dr chen ya... but at the same time pray hard also
We are now trying to concieve again, I am turning 36 next year, the clock is ticking, so I am giving ourselves 6 months and if no good news by next year Feb, we will go to see the gynae.
Please can you lemme know who your gynae is?
HappynewYeartoalldearies....hopebabydustfall onusnpopbaby tiger...roarroarroar....
yap yap....only through IVF, the gynae will know the quality of your eggs, how many eggs you've etc....through IUI, they can only see the "forila" (aiyaaa, how to spell arrr)..........
you all r refering to Chris Chen from Glen E ???????
my colleague also had her IVF done by him.....her cousins too...all successful case yaaaaa.....they also had operation to remove the friboids 1st....then followed by IUI...then if fail, it will b IVF........my colleague spent about 55k (includes the operations20k n 2IUI-8k n IVF-25k)....she was telling me its better to set aside 60k just in case ..........
he's really exp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
