I am currently doing my first IVF. I go in tomorrow (Tues) for my egg retrieval.

Can anyone give me any advise on what to expect ?

Thank you in advance !

I have just completed my first IVF cycle. I went in for retrieval at 8:30am and I was home by 1:00pm. I didn't have any pain just a very small amount of bleeding. The next day I felt fine. I took the day off because I read somewhere that you should pamper yourself during this time. So I rested, took it easy until the transfer. I hope you have success.

Did you get the eggs retrieved? Our retrieval is due for 07/29 and I am so anxious for the process to work. How did your injections go before retrieval? Wishing you good luck!!

We had our Retrieval on Friday and it wasn't as bad as I had thought that it would be, I had 25 folicles and got 13 eggs and only 7 fertilized. When I went for the transfer yesterday 5/12 we only had 2 6 celled embryo's. Good Luck with your retrieval.

Thank you all for your replies.

Update on me -

My retrieval and transfer are now complete and I am currenlty on my 2ww.

We transfered 2, 5 day blastocysts.

My beta is this Friday and the 2ww has been so long... I just want Friday to be here !

My hips are very sore from the PIO shots but it will be worth it !

Praying hard that this has worked for us.

Good luck to everyone else.
