I totally agree! We just have to put on a brave face and keep trying... Im not looking up for private treatments. Can anyone recommend where they think is best? Iv looked at both GCRM and Origin both look good and all the doctors i had in RVH also work in origin!
Also we had Icsi last time round and i see origin are doing picsi has anyone had this or no what the difference is??

Hi Hopefull

I spoke my chum who is studying embryology she sent me the below, I hope it helps (it means nothing to me !) :thumbsup:

The embryologists use a PICSI dish, which is coated with drops of hyaluronan, a compound matrix naturally surrounding the oocyte. In vivo, sperm naturally bind to hyaluronan. Research has demonstrated sperm that bind to hyaluronan demonstrate enhanced levels of normal morphology, motility and developmental maturity. When the embryologist places sperm onto the PICSI dish, the mature sperm will become immobilized by anchoring themselves to the hyaluronan and showing tails with hyperactivation. Sperm showing this type of activation will be chosen for ICSI. studies show that it creased the amount of live pregnancies by 15%

Oh hopeful I'm only seeing this now. I'm so sorry to hear that.

I've been talking to origin and meeting with them this week. The success rates are very hard to understand particularly from the hefa website so I'm going in person to suss it out. They have an offer on treatment at the minute so it's much cheaper.
I've ordered a load of zita west vitamins too so gonna start take them religiously.

Hope you are all well xx

Hi rosebud it was just the initial they appear clear straight after the hsg. I had 2 send a form back the the rfc to advise that the test has been carried out before I get an apt with my consultant again. The doc on the day of the test said it could take up 2 12 weeks but she wasn't 100% sure as she worked in maternity usually and not the rfc. Was just wondering does this class us as unexplained or do we need further testing or can we be put on the list. It's just the waiting when u have so many questions dives me up the wall lol x

I would say they will class it as unexplained. If ur test was clear and ur blood work was clear and ur dh has a normal count and ur bmi is under 35 then there's probs not much more they can test u on. Be horrible tho to have it be called unexplained because if ur anything like me I like to know all the ins and outs I like to have reasons and answers xx

They haven't raised any issues with us so far. I am like that rosebud I need a logical explanation for everything not that I want anything to be wrong but at least I would have a reason for why nothing has happened yet rather than a we don't know. Do you think there is a possibility that they may put me on the list if nothing happens by my next apt? I have read some people saying that they have fallen prg after an hsg as it can clear the cobwebs but im not getting my hopes up nothing is ever straight forward with me lol x

Hey hopefull, I'm feeling ok. You should look up zita west website, she does vitafem vitamins and dhea vitamins and a vitamin d spray. I've heard a load of people who have taken them and had success.

What price is the Royal for private treatment? Who is it consultant there? I had ishola abaje and really liked him but hardly saw him. Wonder if you go private there does a consultant do your transfer/collection?

Hope you are well xx

Hey Fairy we are having icsi done and there prices are around. £3500 + meds and you dont need to get all ur tests done again so that saves £900 for us! We had dr mcfaul last time but never seen him at all during treatment. You have to wait on ur review apt tho before you can go private so we have to wait 7-9weeks now .... But no waiting lists after that. Xx

Hi girls, hope everyone is doing good and trying to keep themselves sane!! I'm due to get bloods done in RVH at end of month and another appt 2 weeks later. Was just wondering from any of the girls that have been through RVH before, what day into cycle do you start taking meds? Trying to work out when I might roughly be going through treatment!! xx

Hi Rebecca, in my case I started the spray on day 21. You get your drugs at the 2nd appt and then you have to ring them on day 1 of your next cycle so they can make out your schedule. You'll receive it in the post about a week later.

Hi Rosebud, I got letter to tell me I'm top of list middle of July and my 2appointments aren't until end of August and middle of September. Then with period dates I'm sure it will be October before I'm actually taking meds!! Still a long enough wait even once you get the letter!! xx

Rebecca, I'd hoped that too but the nurse said no. She said everyone has to phone on day 1. It'd be a bonus if you were given different advice but at least if you go prepared expecting to have to wait you won't be disappointed x

No problem, if you have any questions at any time just ask away. I've actually had three schedule appointments but took shingles two weeks into my second cycle but I got my schedule that day too,from three different nurses so I don't no.

Yip I'm going to go to gcrm. Access fertility now do a pay for two cycles and get 50% refund if not successful. Which I'm glad because not sure if I want to commit to three. So saving at min and going on a long weekend to Spain next weekend and maybe make appointment soon.

Started acupuncture two weeks ago to see if it will make any difference and started taking vita west vitamins, so time will tell if it all works. X

Thanks for the reply Rebecca I was thinking when I get my letter probs still be a few months before I actually get started lol I'm due my letter round middle of October so that leaves me starting Jan/Feb if it works out roughly same process as u. This waiting is killing me, I can deal with needles and being poked and prodded at., but waiting drives me insane it's the not knowing lol

Love this wee forum think id be absolutely lost without it as I don't have anyone else apart from my dp to chat to about things, I woul have a clue what to expect if it wasn't for you ladies thanks very much.

Keep us posted Rebecca if u can as I love to hear about the experiences that I will have to go thru too. Best of luck to u too xx

Hi ladies I'm just wondering has anyone done anything different to prepare for ivf? I know a lot of ladies eat healthier and exercise but I have heard about ladies not wearing fake tan and nail polish or eating different foods to improve there chances. I was just wondering has anyone been advised to do these things? Seems to be a lot of this on the Internet but nothing has been mentioned at the rfc.
