Hello there Nice to see a new face (so to speak) We have been going thru the adoption route now for 15mths (yes 15mths) and are still waiting for the home visits to start ... a lot of things have gone wrong so far with ours (i mean paper work, timescales etc) doesnt mean it will happen with yours of course Its a hard decision to come to ... adoption.. so i can sympathise with you there, but once u get the ball rolling ur whole aspect of adoption will change ... the children who wait arnet 'perfe...

sterilisation reversal.....what do I do?

Your gp will refer you to a provate consultant who will advise you on which is best for you = ivf or reversal. Please be aware that ivf doesnt always work. I was steralized and went to consultant to have it reversed, but he advised me that ivf would be better for us, as i already had given birth to 2 children, that ivf would be easy for us!! Wrong - 4 ivf's and a m/c later ... i am now too old for another ivf (43 in Aug) and am going down the adoption route. There are times when i wish to god i ...

Unsuccessful 1st round of IVF - will the second be even worse?

Hello there First of all, im so sorry to hear about ur bfn ... its bloody hard when that happens and i know exactly how u are feeling. Ive had 4 attempts at ivf too ... 1 m/c and then threw in the towel ... The first failed and i was a wreck - it took me a year - yes a YEAR to get over it and decide to go again. It hits u hard when u have all ur hopes and dreams shattered when u get that negative result. It took me a long long time to get back up on the rollercoaster again, but i did eventually ...

Advice on sterilization reversal

Hi, I opted for IVF too ... My consultant advised it would be better (and cheaper) for us ... 4 paid for IVF's later ... and at the age of 42 - im still not pregnant ... and now its too late for reversal ... I do regret not going for the reversal, but only because i wasnt sucessful (obvisouly) no one knows if the reversal wud have beeb sucessful, or the IVF ... its a choice u have to make urself ... the way i look at it now, if i had had the reversal done ... i could at least 'try' every mth for...

Why so negative?

Hi There We are at the moment going thru the adoption process an i can honestly say, the visiting SW who visited us after our initial inquirey tried doing the same to us too. It is true that they asses ur dogs ... we have 2 and they will be lookoed at to see if they are good with children, what type of dog they are, where they live etc (ours are outside dogs an are kept outside at all times) there is a form to fill out with questions about the dogs, i understand why they do this cos after all, i...

sterilization reversal

Hi Ells I cant anwser ur question im afraid, but im sure u could find out where u are on the waiting list if u ring the dept up and ask them. Just out of curisoity, how long have u been steralized for and were u offered IVF .... reason i ask is cos i was steralized many years ago and when i went to Doc to ask for it to be reversed, he told me i was better going off for IVF - which i took his advise and did .... 4 attempts later and 4 years older - here i am, feeling too dam old for another IVF (...

Belfast clinics treatment feedback and chat

Hi Girls Lee/Lou - quick question for u both ... are u having treatment at The Origin clinic? Reason why i ask is because when i had my last cycle there, i too only had one or two big follies but lots of little ones ... and every other time i have had treatment with them, i had responded really well, (responded really badly at the RVH with only 1 egg - shite cycle with them) but on my last cycle at Origin they changed the drugs to 600mu of Gonal F for the first 2 days (300 morning injection & 30...

Ovulation Pain

Haaaaaaaaaa .... now then, now then (said in my Jimmy Savile accent) i had that too - more eggs from my right side as my other ovary was hidden from view of all scans etc ... thye had to push down really hard on my tummy at all my EC's (quite bloody painful too) to get eggs from my leftie ... maybe thats why there is a lot of tugging when we ovulate ... Hmmmm might have anwsered our own questions there lol .. xx

Ovulation Pain

I get exactly the same hun. Altho im not exactly 14 days as my periods can range from 28 - 38 day cycle, but i usually know when im ovulating as i get crampy (like mild period pains) and i get a lot of tugging too ... (might be daft thnking, but could this be the egg releasing??) i also get lots of EWCM, so much so, that lately ive had to use a panty liner ... i dont think its anything to worry about tho hun - at least i hope not Xxx
