I don't think the public hospitals will take in new cases this time around, try again when dorscon is back to yellow or green. Not sure private hospital policy thou.
I just met my doc (pte) yesterday and there’s no issues but I’m a bit hesitant. Was actually so eager to start but with the situation now is quite a bummer.

Hi everyone. This is my first try at IVF and I’m sitting on the fence as to whether I should start this month due to the virus situation. I’m going the private route and from what I understand it is still good to go ahead. I’m in a dilemma.
My hubby told me this too. Slow dwn. Give it 6 mths.. I'm just anxious. And hope this cirus period dies down..

Me too. I am considering to start the first part (stims, egg retrieval), get it over and done with and transfer only when the situation is more stable. My doc favours FET so I thought this could work..

Hi all, JTS I managed to do my egg retrieval last week, but will be going for frozen cycle instead due to risk of OHSS. Due to blood test which showed high hormone levels and my history of infection after HSG+IUI. Felt a bit disappointed but I agree better to play safe!

So I had about 25 eggs extracted - fertilisation occured for most of them, but as of now we only know 2 became blasts and they’re still observing the rest. I’ll be updated in a few days.

Earliest recommended for me to do FET is after 2 periods to make sure my body is “back to normal”. I do feel anxious cos of this whole virus thinggie and I guess I would also think twice if the situation bad by then... fingers crossed!!

Also looking for any tips for increasing chances of implantation? I’ve been taking ba zhen soup the past 2 months, not sure if it helps..
 
My menses came yesterday afternoon, I called KK lVF Centre and now they have change of policy (as of yesterday). I am allowed to start my cycle. They scheduled my first scan tomorrow. However nurse informed me that if myself or my husband fall sick with virus or flu symptoms during cycle, it will be cancelled and no refund. My husband and I decided to go ahead.
My menses shld be this coming wkend. Yup will call them still n see wats the directive

Just wondering what is anyone's experience with FET like...

I did my ER end dec. But FET may only happen 1st week of march.

After ER, got menses within few days, was on 21 days BCP, no idea why, then endo scratch, then hormone suppression jab?, 2nd menses, then 10 days later only starting on prognova for 2 weeks.

Literally entering 3rd month after ER :(

Just feeling frustrated right now it takes this long. The thing is I never even had an issue with lining so not sure why such a long protocol. Was okay with FET cause chances of OHSS was high with fresh. But didnt expect it to take almost 3 months for a FET to be done when there are no issues here..

Awww understood your frustration, eventhough my protocol is never being that long, but I had a cancelled IUI, cancelled ER, cancelled FET all because of medicine doesn't work for me, finally had my FET in November but we lost the embaby, implanted but not too long. Then i have to wait again for consultation...

Everyone IVF journey is different, some get it done ASAP and pregnant, but some journey is really a roller coaster...

Hope we all stay sane! Takecare

I mean i never was told it would take this long. Just feel like it is being dragged for no reason. Not sure why the doctor never started on prognova when I got my menses and we are only starting on CD 10. And the projected timeline for the FET is CD 30..
That is if the medicated thing works for me..

Patpat.. From what I know FET takes a longer cycle esp when is a medicated one.. Gg thru ivf needs super alot of patience n expected disappointment.. I also feel abit time is playing with me since my fresh ET was cancelled 5secs b4 it shld b done n felt super disappted when theres always obstacles to what i wanna do.. Just think of this way that we need to have a gd n positive body for this to have a healthy baby ya

My first medicated FET protocol was: progynova on CD2, blastocyst transfer on CD18, then, tww, then hcg. Not that long. Maybe diff protocol for diff patients ?

I actually expected the same as yours...not sure why they delayed it by giving me hormone suppresing injection...and just to add, no bloodwork was done, so nothing unusual with my own hormones
Starting progynova on CD12, doctor said i should not get my next menses and i really hope it does not come now

Ya probably.. Depends on the condition of the body during the cycle.. I also tot FET is just choosing a right date for the procedure when I was chatting with the nurse on phone this morning she say no have to monitor our womb n see the ovulation period etc.. Silly me

I'm currently putting it on hold due to the virus situation. Private route also. Will wait for situation to cool off first before proceeding.

Have decided the same. Better not to take the risk. IVF is stressful enough, going through it in this uncertainty is just gonna add to the stress! :(

I have a question, will menses come when we are taking dydrogesterone?
Not for me, I lost my embaby (implanted but not too long), but because I was on dydrogesterone so it kinda stopped menses from coming.. My menses only appear after few days of last pills.

Because today I felt a bit back pain, pantie wet, a bit mood swings, those feelings normally I have before menses. So I'm a bit worried if my menses will come soon.

Don't worry about it. Many symptoms are just so similar and confusing. Just pray for the best k. Takecare

Hi. I took it as supplement during stim phase. Bcos the ingredients have folic acid and other vits. My egg retrieval went well.
