Is it advisable to do home pregnancy test post transfer and after many days post transfer or must wait for blood test ?
 
My 2nd fresh IVF cycle, BT is scheduled next Fri. Good luck
All the best! This will be my 2nd baby if it is successful.

Just for sharing, I did not do any home pregnancy test as I feel that the blood test will be the most accurate one, plus it is already going to be paid for anyway. And I do not want to be in the guessing state before the BT, that feeling is unpleasant. Got a positive BT for my first child on my 1st cycle then I went back home to use the test kit just for the record since I never had a positive test before after so many tries before that. Haha..

Hi, I just did a fet at kkh yesterday and test on 5 aug. The 2ww just started. I know how hard the wait could be so wondering any buddy out there with similar schedule?

If u think it is better to pause , pls take ur time.
I did 3 round of IVF and 1 additional embryos transfer between 2014 to 2018. I had 2 positive results out of 4 but both ended with miscarriages. ( I had a total of 4 miscarriages - 2 natural and 2 IVF).
After the last round of embryos transferred in Mar 2018, which was not successful, we thought we should take a break.
Meanwhile , I did some exercises, take Blackmore Conceived well and did massage ( traditional Malay massage recommended by a friend).
I also try to relax my mind by doing some outings with my hubby.
To our surprise, we did conceive naturally in Aug and delivered healthy baby boy last month.
So based on our experience, pls don’t give up on trying to conceive in any way.
Oh forgot to highlight my age. I am 44 currently.
Good luck and baby dust to you.
Congrats! I also started taking blackmores about 5 weeks ago and really hope it will help me with successful cycle this time.

I am so lost now. Today is my cd12 and due to low amh, i only have 3 follicles. Just did my scan this am and all 3 follicles are 7 to 9mm. The nurse told me that most likely will have to abandon this cycle cus they are not growing. Next scan on friday, cd14, after the scan they will decide if the cycle is gg to br abandoned.

Anyone else face similar problem before? Is there anything which i can do today and tmr?

Hi, has anyone here had any luck with EmbryoGen?

I had OR done yesterday by Prof Yu at SGH. 10 eggs collected with oocyte activation.

Day 1 - Out of 10 eggs, 7 ICSI’ed, 4 fertilized. Quality yet to be determined.

I’m 38, had 2 cancelled ETs previously at KKIVF due to poor fertilization. I’m a nervous wreck. Praying that my 4 eggs will develop well and hopefully we would have a transfer this time.

Hi everyone :) am looking to register for ivf at Kkh but just found out my thyroid has some issues - low TSH levels but normal T4 levels. Googled this and understand that I have subclinical hyperthyroidism. Doctor has suggested that I see a specialist to clear this before proceeding with IVF. Anyone heard of similar encounters? Am worried if this will hinder my chance at ivf. Thanks!

Anyone taken norE tablets before commencing ivf? Feeling moody and depressed... wonder if anyone felt the same and how to overcome it?

Does anyone know how long after a failed cycle of IVF will we resume our periods? My IVF result is negative but my period is 5 days late and I've been having brown discharges which were not the case usually before my period.

we are at same age. and same mood..:( i am thinking to book an appointment for IVF this month, have not figured out where , saw some old comment regarding the Gleneagle , thinking to give a try. every month the expecing and disappointed mood rly tough n torture. Maybe plan it to be done is whats the better way now esp i am hoping to have a baby soon.
 
Hi, all ladies. also try to understand the package price including test, medi and surgery? if failed the 1st cycle and get over again, then rly costly to pay over again...

Hello @Msofy cramps on and off is normal. Could be due to implantation? Which day embryo u transfer? And how many?
I did a day 5 embryo transfer. 1 only and I have 2 more frozen. I had very little eggs. 7 extracted. 6 matured. 5 fertilised and all made it to day 5 but only 3 were good embryos. I am praying for the best but you know how this works.

Hello ladies, hope everyone is doing well. I am 37yo (Sept 2019), husband 38yo. We have been married for 2 years with no success of getting pregnant. Finally decided to see a fertility clinic, one at overseas, Raffles Hospital Fertility Clinic, and KKH Assisted Reproduction Clinic D. All three clinics suggested IVF right away due to our ages and the period of trying to conceive (ttc).

Did ultrasounds and pre checks at Raffles. Being a private clinic, they recommended IVF treatment right away, but the cost quoted is max 20k (due to follicles, age etc)

Decided to get subsidized rates and co funding at KKH. Had to sit through the long wait at a polyclinic for the referral letter. While it is great that the Clinic D require a thorough check before referring us to KK IVF Clinic, being a public hospital, the tests appointments take forever.

Found out I am a carrier of Thalassemia blood trait. Husband is normal. Test took a month for results.

The pap smear and HBV test revealed i am a HBV high risk.

Next, I was scheduled for a HyPoSy to check tubes and uterus for polyps. Test was super painful..!! Found out I have a polyp.

Last test was a colposcopy which confirmed I have very mild pre cancer HPV cells.

I was initially upset that I had to jump through so many loops and waiting game before I can proceed with IVF. But now these tests shed a lot of light on my infertility.

Anyone else have gone through something similar? Since I am using the gov subsidy, will I not be able to choose my own IVF doctor later on? Will the polyp removal be subsidized as well? Can we use Medisave?

I am so sad that i have HPV pre cancer cells on my cervix. Have to go every 6 months to check and monitor. However, the doctor at the Colposcopy Suites gave me the green light for IVF.

Hi, so sorry and so motivated to hear that you have went through so many steps to get the green light. Honestly, all the steps i heard here rly scare me off. I have not go for any test which want wait to end of this year see if any luck to nature conceive. Exp me and my husband not apply PR yet thought we stay here already 4 years and 6 years ( my husband ) , so surely we dont have any subsidy from government . Heard about PR can get 1st time IVF 6000SGD subsidy too? Just now pushing my husband to apply first. haha. Even can not use for 1st time, see if benefit for anything in future. Really so tough and anxious to monitor the mood . But wish all the best for us !
