I've been trying to conceive since in year 2007 but unsuccessful. Went for thoroughly check up from Dr Sharmini Nair (Kandang Kerbau Hospital) but was being referred to Dr SF Loh as she has already left to Raffles Hospital.
During our appointment with Dr SF Loh and went thru so many tests, and the Results turn out to be in pretty good condition, i do have 35 eggs each and husby also have a normal sperms. We tried to conceive naturally by taking clomiphene twice but unsuccessful. So Dr SF Loh suggest me for test tube baby which is IVF.
So here we are, at KKIVF centre, I am one who just recently did my IVF for my 1st cycle and now i am on my 3rd day of Lucrin.
Need to know more about the experience of doing IVF and hope to have more friends in here.

hi! I am joining you gals here too. I'll be having my 1st appointment with the hospital on 30th May..nervous!
My husband and I have decided to do IVF at KK hospital with Dr SF Loh after trying naturally and iui for many times. First of all, need to do blood test first which is tomorrow on my 2nd day of menses, then was advised by the nurse to come back 21 days later after my menses for scanning.
Hi all!!!! I' m seeing Dr S F Loh for my IUI. Any doing IUI too?
I really need some advice on when I should make the decision to try for IUI/ICSI/IVF
I need to know if anyone is in the same/similar boat and can offer me some advice/comfort from your experience:
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 4 months without success. I know this is a short period but we decided to just send his Semen for an analysis to find out if there was anything wrong.
Turns out he has healthy sperm count & motility...however his Morphology is only 1% which and was diagnosed with "teratozoospermia" which is a condition whereby majority of his sperms forming is abnormal (and only 1% of his sperm is viable for a successful conception to take place).
This really saddened me. Strangely, the Doctor told me that I still have a 'high chance' of conceiving cos i am young, regular periods & ovulation, and his sperm count is still high so even 1% is still enough to conceive - just that it might take us longer than usual to conceive.
When I googled online about this condition, people in the same boat ended up having to go for IUI and some can't even do IUI they have to immediately take the IVF route.
Now I'm just confused...how long should we try naturally before taking the alternative routes?
Husband is now taking supplements and herbal remedy provided by the clinic and he is to retake his test again in 3months time.
I Hoping for the best.
Any advice is appreciated
Just to encourage those who are trying...I did 3 IUIs in 2007 and was blessed to be pregnant on my 3rd try. I took my 1st IUI's failure the hardest. Became very emotional. Took a lot of courage to take the 2nd one. To keep hoping for positive result really drained me emotionally. But hubby encouraged me and we really desire a child of our own so we went for my 3rd. It was a miracle cos my hubby have varicole sperms and I have PCOS, adenomyosis and uterine fibroids. But I was not comfortable with IVF so IUI was my last frontier. And God really gives! Now my sweet daughter is 2.5yo.
We are currently trying our 2nd one. I'm on my 3rd injection to shrink my womb cos my hormonal imbalance caused my womb to swell to 2.5 time normal. The hormonal injection has the menopausal side effects. Gets me pretty irritable esp facing my 2yo day in and day out. Will be doing the IUI again in May or June.
So jia you!
Halo kristenQ! My case is just like yours. dont't wait, go ahead with the IUI.
KirstenQ, my husband has 1% morphology. We tried 3 IUI without success, so we are moving onto IVF (ICSI). Unlike your husband, mine has low count too.
Basically, they will ask to go for thoroughly check up for both husband and wife. After the result came out then d gynae will tell you what is the best option/ treatment for you and husband.
For myself and husband, both are normal. I do have 35 eggs in each womb. husband sperm count is normal. it just that its not the time yet for us so we tried to take natural way 1st by taking clomiphene prescribe by Dr SF Loh. Did twice. but unsuccessul so we left with no choice but to proceed with the IVF.
And yes I am on my 2nd stage starting 2mrw.
I am going for my 2nd stage of Lucrin & Puregon jab. Am hoping everything goes well for me. Next week need to come back to Kandang Kerbau Hospital for ultrasound again to see if my follicles has grow. Hoping it will grow. *Cross finger*
Once it grows, they can start to collect my eggs. Am all excited but at the same time i am nervous. scared its gonna be unsuccessful.
Wish me a very good luck mummies....
Hi everyone i'm new here. I've done my 4th time iui on 25 April'11. Cant wait to find out the result !!
Good luck Divs
I did my IVF and got BFN today It cost around $15,000...
Does KK hospital do IVF cheaper? Are there a long waiting list?
