Thanks Quaver!! I got my periods 2 days ago
Now will go for IVF. I am doing it at NUH with Prof PC Wong. My next appointment is for 30th May to start the injections…
I think it costs around $13k in NUH.
Whats BFN?? Good luck!!
Sorry hear about your period i can imagine the disappointment.
where did you do your IVF? I am going to NUH.
been to my appointment and then doc said must wait till my next period come next month to decide the dosage of my jab of puregon (thru puregon pen done at home by myself or hubby). Anyone tried the nasal spray of GnRH or puregon jabs yet? Any discomfort or side effects so far?
I've done Puregon, and had no side effects or discomfort
Have just book my appointment for KKHIVF during October. I was attached to Dr Matthew Lau. dont't know if he is good, thought of changing gynae but my dear husband says not necessary. Has anyone attached to him before for IVF?
I will be going for my very first attempt at IUI this month with Dr. LC Foong at Gleneagles - any tips to give me or any one who has gone to see him before and would like to share some advise? In fact, any general advice would be appreciated.
My husband has a high sperm count but very low morphology (only 1% normal). We have been trying to conceive for 7 months without success until we found out this was the root cause. I felt more discouraged than my husband. We finally went to see an andrologist who referred us to Dr.Foong.
We initially wanted to opt for IVF/ICSI immediately but Dr.Foong (after analysing my husband's semen results and after performing a womb scan on me) concluded that it would be best for us to at LEAST TRY IUI first before we jump the gun. He is a very positive, pleasant and warm doctor. He focussed more on the positive aspects of our situation (I have a healthy egg reserve, healthy womb, husband has high sperm count, and all we need is 1 good sperm yes???) I really felt much better after seeing him.
Anyway it just so happens that I am at CD2 of my period now. I can test for ovulation soon and we'll have first attempt this month (if all goes well). Keeping my fingers crossed and praying hard for success. I heard that IUI's success rate is very low.. but well, I guess it's always worth a shot right? If this doesn't work then we will probably move on to IVF / ICSI!
Does anyone know the difference between IVF and ICSI?
To all mummies and mummies-to-be TCC / expecting, best of luck !!!
Hi Quaver, I only just saw this message (not sure why i didnt get a notification for this reply!). Yes we are trying IUI this month..after 7 months of trying to conceive naturally, it's about time. I hope that you have been doing well. Keep in touch!
Hi Prawn! Yup we're trying this month! Wish me luck! Fingers crossed!
I had my IUI done on may but sadly it does not work out on me. Planned to try nature till end of this year before going for IVF. Like to share my experience, KKIVF sucks! Poor dr and service! Any dr to share?
Any advice you could give pertaining to IUI? The issue lies with my husband (he has very poor morphology 1% only).
Hi Kristen! May i knw the price for IUI with L C Fong? I did my at Kandang Kerbau Hospital at about $900. Will the appt for IVF with dr fong takes long? Kandang Kerbau Hospital waiting time is about 5 mths.
Was your doctor good? how much did you spend in total for your iui? did you do injectables fsh or clomid? Were you on progesterone too? Sorry for so many questions! Trying to find a good and affordable doctor. Thanks!
Hi Prawn and csens - I'll send you both private messages separately soon
Anyone heard of retroverted uterus or have the condition?
Hi all...i've just done my iui last monday and am now at my 2ww....getting anxious but trying to take it easy and not think about it. This is my 2nd cycle but am not feeling anything different. Is anyone also in their 2ww?
Relax viv. Also plan something everyday, simple things like going shopping, cinema and having your nails done to look forward to, so you'll be distracted.
They say being happy increases the chances, so watch some comedy TVs
Hi viv, I will be going for my first round of iui this week. Wishing you the best of luck. Stay happy and yes keep your self occupied...time will pass you by in a flash!
