    I did it before as pre requisite checks before seeing my doc.

    It's kinda painful (as if having bad cramps when they start to pump some liquid in) which I asked myself if child birth contraction is like that...hahaha..quite an experience...

    Doc did not ask me to take painkiller but I took on my own accord. It ease quite abit but can still feel the cramp...

Only after that around 20 min. There are some cramps. I just try to take hot drink after that than feel better.
    Thanks Fangning! That's assuring to hear. I'm doing mine at Thomson Medical Center too! Did you take some painkillers and hour before the procedure? I read online that some people advise that.

    Nope I did not ask for painkiller. But if yr pain endurence is very small than think you cam tell e nurse when you register at e counter.

    The slight cramping pain is only when they *abit ra.. shot e dye in than they ask you to move yr butt left and right to get e perfect pic. For me I just concentrate on e ceiling lights and breath in and out till they say done.

    The stronger cramp like pain is after e test I still walk to novena sq and drink soya bean than feel it. It lasted around till evening. I did my test at 2.00. Hope my experience help in assuring you. Its done in a flash. My test was a straight A* as per dr and ready to rumble. Ha ha.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Rainbow: aw.. dont sound so hopeless.. its just a passing phrase, I too feel totally hopeless and was so close to the brink of giving up. I vent my anger on my hubs for no apparent reason and seeing preggy ladies or couples with toddlers, I gets both envy and angry (with myself and hubs) and reading bout those who complain and rant while they r trying for their #3 (Yes! #3 and still make it sound as thou they r so xin ku trying for their a first..) I get fed up with their stooped rants and I was so tempted to shoot back sumthing, but I held back.. so I go do something else, something that's bad but i know it will make me happy (like spree shopping for shoes, buy stoopid and useless things *hubs words not mine coz i think my every single purchase are useful, in a way..*, try new eating place, drive around aimlessly wasting petrol, blaring the car stereo and speed a little on quiet road..etc..) i let it all out and after a while, i know the feeling of frustration will pass.. In other words i dumped all excess frustration from trying to concieve onto something that has nothing to do with trying to concieve...

    datz how i maintain my sanity and stopped acting like a spoilt bitch to my hubs... so rainbow, dont get despair, dont give up, yes, we can be disappointed and sad and frustrated and angry, find a way to release all these negative energy.. do it in any way that will make you happy and soon it will be another brand new cycle, new hope. The most impt thing is, dont let the disappointment win, overcome it!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    thanks maq and dragontail. why i feel hopeless? perhaps from my gynae who already told me to go for ivf. from 2 different tcms (yes, i went to a second one when i felt the first was not keen to help me anymore) who kinda gave up on me. just said keep trying till i m 50! to me its not encouraging, you mean i must try till 50 and finally give up? the 2 tcms whom i keep telling them of my af problems etc and whose meds didn't help and no response fr them. so now i guess i m left with the western doc- fertility doc, assuming he can help. when i need some help, no western/chinese doc is there to assist, so i think i m a hopeless case.. not to say if i go ivf, i will bfp too.

    sorry i m ranting. i just feel frustrated.

    Maq and rainbow, agree so much that you can find something to occupy yourself so that you dont feel so stressed up...

    I have been committing on volunteering to occupy myself and to keep mind positive...anyway seeing ppl happy also makes me happy...you can try too!

    Maq, lately I also shop alot and now I dont know what to buy ...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    red dates: dont look back to the past.. coz I used to do dat a lot, esp when we keep trying, like rabbits, still not as successful as those bunnies, and to think I m part rabbit (龙头兔尾, dragon head rabbit tail).. si bei ironic rite.. 我是失败的兔子

    I now resort to hiding any latest purchases frm hubs... I figure when my hubs dont see them in their newly purchase form (with price tags and/or in a shopping ctr carrier) he'll think its just random stuffs around e house or its just another items from our wardrobe, wahahahhaha..

    hey now, Rainbow.. you dont hve to say sorry.. you can rant all you want.. I believe we r all here for one another... I know how bad e frustration can get more so esp when your gynae and traditional chinese medicine docs seems hapless about your af prob... Still, rainbow, sometimes things is very funny .. when you think you r already at the end of the road and you think theres no other way out, and you r just about to back off and forget all about it, a new path just suddenly appear. If you feel that IVF is something you can look forward to, and you have time and monies to go for it, why not? provided you r ready (mentally) to face whatever outcome, be it happy or sad, that comes with ivf.

    we also talk about ivf. I m not ready as I know myself. Coz I know the stakes for ivf are high, and for my character, whenever I vested so much into something n I dont see the result I desire, I will break. Therefore ivf which supposingly cld be an option for me, I chose to opt out of it, at least for now...

    Rainbow, if you r not ready for ivf, and if you think you r not strong to go thru it now, give yourself some time, built yourself stronger (mentally, and that's what I m doing as well..) so when you embark on the journey of ivf, you will be able to face any consequence, good or bad, happy or sad with a stronger, better self. Jia You!!!

    Rainbow, jia you!

    The physical and emotional aspects are real big concerns. But dont think negative, perhaps you can ask your doc about the success rate based on your condition. If it's on the high side then perhaps worth a try and the outcome cld be positive. So dont give up yet.

    Just concentrate on fertility treatments and see how first.
