Sorry gals for MIA so long, cos I just started on my new job and was really busy.
Justforgags, great to hear that you will be embarking on your ivf journey! Hope that it is a success story for you!
Shashan, how do you know whether your egg quality is not good? My dr did not mention. The embrologist said egg shell a bit thick but anyway mine's ICSI so actually I think no issue. I am also feeling really desperate. So many of my friends and colleagues are preggy already. I am the only one who got married the earliest yet still no news. Have avoided all my friends who are preggy and congratulating other ppl while pretending not to feel sad inside.
Life has been getting really empty & meaningless althou I have tried to put my focus on my work or other priorities. Now I am so scared to even think of the future. I dont think I will go for another ivf for now.
Welcome bck.. Thx for the hope that you gv me=) but seriously im afraid to c the future w/o kiddos like you do cause my hubby's younger bro jz celebrate the new arrival of their baby boy n it really bring us down as my mum in law pester us like crazy=( its our personal prob that i dont wanna share wit any of my family members but it really really bring us down..
Oh god!! pls answer our prayers n gv us happiness n HOPE that all married couple should have:'(
i have failed 2 cycles if ivf (1 fresh n 1 FET) n am not thinking of tiao my body before trying again. Anyone does traditional chinese medicine here? Anyone with Raffles traditional chinese medicine? Any feedback comment?
I read many good reviews of dr zou in amk so not to sure whether to switch.
Thanks all for replies to my questions
im new here....have completed my 1st ivf....today is my 8th day after egg transfer....sadly still no symptoms yet....hopefully its not a BFN....i have already failed 3 cycles of IUI....sigh.....
I starting my IVF next month. Can advs how long to take to complete the whole process? Do we need to often take leave? how long to self injection? Is it painful
Can any ppl advs what is the different between iui & ivf?
Which is cheaper??
OIC. How is yr result ? Any good new? btw, the daily injection how much do we need to pay? Scanning every 2 to 3 day rite? normally scanning can it be do at evening timing?
my blood test will only b due on mon....but i have a sinking feeling that it did not work
today is already my 10dp4dt (10 days post 4 days transfer) n i dont have any symptoms yet. however im still trying to keep my hopes up.
yup, scanning have to b done every few days. its up to your clinic whether they can squeeze you in for evening timings....different centres work differently....the cost of injection also depend on individual dosage.
stay happy pray hard sure got good new. btw, r you doing at Kandang Kerbau Hospital? DO doc give you mc for bedrest?
i was also told if im tested positive next wk, i will b given an additional 2 wks mc....
Hi ladyluck 1801,
the cost there is it a bomb? no Govt grant given .... wow given another 2 weeks mc... will effect yr work .... yr boss will no happy lol...
so far before you wen for all tis, did you wen to tiao yr body or wen for any traditional chinese medicine doctor? Is yr body problem or yr hubby had a slow swimmer sperm?
i didnt really tiao my body...i went for a few sessions of traditional chinese medicine n thats it...at hme i will drink yomeishu, chicken of essence, manuka honey n herbal soups.....
we r categorised under "unexplained infertility" cos there's no prb with me n hubby n yet cant conceive after 2 yrs. my tubes wasnt blocked....i ovulate every month....my menses r regular most of the time....hubby's sperm analysis tests all came bck normal...in fact it was quite good.....so dont know wats wrong....probably got inplantation prb.....
Wow so nice boss you have, lady boss ? btw r yr boss aware of you doing IVF? How you tell them about tis ? So pia sei if boss is a gentleman rite.
veri expensive cost... if not success on tis time,, $$$ will be all gone ...
really come to the worst did you ever come across of adoption?
not only is IVF costly, i think its emotionally n mentally very stressful if the end result is a BFN. at the moment i have not thought about adoption yet. i'll keep trying....
How old r you now?
surprise ... you r same age with mi.... you been married n tried 4 how long before you decide to ivf ?
what job r you working at? since yr bosses allow you to extend yr mc...
wow sah... you had spend so much $$$........ How your hubby respond with so man attempt fail? Is your hubby still below 40, still can try harder abit lol...
what is e different between IUI & IVF? IUI cheaper is it ?? At least your job is not so stress still ok.
IUI is definitely so much cheaper than IVF. we spent about 1.2K per IUI while IVF is a whooping 12K. IUI is not as time consuming as IVF cos its more straightforward. IVF still have to go for ER....got to culture the eggs in the lab...got to wait n c how's the response of the eggs....whether its fertilising properly or not....the grading....etc etc....then finally go bck for ET....then the 2WW....the waiting period is the worse cos you got to stay positive....not to over-exert....n you tend to c if there's any pregnancy symptoms....
my job still got to meet target every end of the month...got to come up with new marketing strategies to attract more ppl...else boss will question y this y that....then have to write report....
Since you have tried for so long and failed twice on IUI attempt, y your doctor did not recommend you straight to do IVF? IVF can only be try upto 3 times only..
Self injection have to take how long? is it a month?
