First timer IVF and new member-HI!!
Sun, 05-11-2003 - 5:06pm
Hello all. I am a new member and I will be visiting here on a frequent basis. We had a failed attempt at an IUI in mid-April. I have PCOS and hubby has inconsistent count of "litle guys" and I am 34, hubby is 44 and due to our ages, we decided to go straight to IVF. Our retrieval date is set for 07/29. In the meantime, I am on the BC pills and I have a Sono-Hysterogram scheuled for 05/19. I am worried it is going to be painful. I had the Hysterosalpingogram done in March and that HURT so much! Can anyone give me some feed back on the Sono-Hysterogram - does it hurt and can I go back to work the same day? My appt. is at 10:15 am. Also, I am flying out 07/03-07/13 and our shots start on 07/07. Has anyone here started injections while they were on a vacation? We have a 2nd home in New England, so I won't be in a hotel or anything. I am just worried about the flights interfering with the success of the injections. Also, has anyone heard any good feed back about buying fertility meds from Their prices are much cheaper, I just don't know if it is safe to purchase from there, or pay the higher rate and purchase through my doctor. Sorry for all of the questions...I am sure I will have more as time goes on..LOL. All my wishes and pryaers to all of you TTC. We are all in this together..
