    Hi.. After they retrieve the eggs and if you are doing fresh cycle, you are required to return to KK for egg transfer.

    Hi, i’m new here. I just started to see some reviews about iui/ivf. I’m 27, been ttc for 2years. Previously i’ve done afew test and scans in kkh regards on infertility. All results came out to be normal, and i missed the last appointment with my gynaecology on december. Should i proceed to polyclinic and get a referral letter or can i just rebook my gynae appointment and get them refer me to ivf department?

    Appreciate if anyone knows what to do and can advice me further. Thanks

    Poly means u don’t get to choose gynae, process could be longer too.... but direct means you’re charged as private n you will have a specific gynae

    Hi! Just received BFN for blood test for fresh cycle.

    Is there anyone that did FET cycle straightaway? Or usually people will take a short break from failed fresh cycle before proceeding with FET cycle?

    Really depends dear, as subsidized I think generally the wait is a bit longer, also they will first start of with tests for you and husband to make sure everything is ok, then depending on doc they will suggest the best treatment for you based on your health if there’s specific issues or I guess also how long you’ve been trying, age etc.... then it’s doctors slots.... and whether your body is ready.... once it’s decided, in general an ivf fresh cycle starts with a briefing session where they inform you on the legalities and things to know about all that comes with ivf, husband and you will sign the forms etc... then on your next period (first day) call the ivf clinic and subsequently for the next 10-14 days (rarely can be more) you’d have to go back to hosp for scans and medication (not to mention the daily jabs) then if you’re all good, it’s egg retrieval.... then either 2,3 or 5 days later (if your body is ok and you have successfully fertilized embryos) the egg transfer back to your uterus is done.
    Finally you wait for about 2weeks for your blood test whether you’re positive or not......
    Hope this helps, and I didn’t misrepresent..
    All the best girl.. :* have faith and stay positive no matter what ok...... not easy, but absolutely possible! Jia you!

    Hi, I'm new here. My husband and me been trying for about 3 years+ but it always no news. Recently get to know there is some co fund for IVF. And private gynae was recommend us to do either IUI or IVF. Due to my husband work, I dont think IUI may work. Although it more natural as need to check when I ovulate too. So we decided to try IVF. Mostly people is either go for KKH or NUH for IVF. but cant decide which hospital to go. Colleague want me to try NUH PC Wong, but I heard he now semi retirement. Just afraid by the time the process, will not done by him. So any recommended for which hospital to choose? NUH or KKH?

    Angel1080 Active Member

    Dr sadhana in KKH is good.... she’s strict and scary sometimes but very motherly and professional.... most of the time she’s very nice.... she’s very honest but not insensitive.. and very senior.... can try.

    xiaovian New Member

    Thank you for your reply. Did you go thru by appointment thru kkh or polyclinic? And you success thru ivf?
     
  30. Angel1080

    Angel1080 Active Member

    I was referred from my then gynae at KKH - was private.... if you go by polyclinic it’s subsidized, much cheaper but you can choose your doctor and waiting times will be longer.... so I Guess depends on your priorities and comfort-level
     
  31. xiaovian

    xiaovian New Member

    Oh.. I can try to call KKH and check the appointment date. Normally how long will you take before you start your IVF process?
     
  32. Angel1080

    Angel1080 Active Member

    Depends... on your health, Husband, doctor and slots avail...... only know after all your tests and what your doc feels is best for you... can be as fast as your next 2 cycle of menses
     
  33. xiaovian

    xiaovian New Member

    Oh... okay.. at least I roughly know it need to take how long. Hmmm... it quite tiring every month always fail when trying for natural. Thanks sis for your info. I shall call kkh to check when is the earliest available date for appointment by then can discuss for next step. Appreciate your help for the info. ^^

    Thanks babe - just applying hair tonic now... Will let you know if any other tips!

    Just wanted to share, I actually did 2 iui which failed. My initial gynae only did simple SA (she only wanted to earn $$). after I changed to ivf specialist, who sent us for detailed SA, it was identified that iui would not have worked for us.. Now in the midst of cycle, going for fet nex t month

    I'm with prof ng and highly recommend. he's the father of ivf treatment in Asia, delivered the first ivf baby here.
     
  35. xiaovian

    xiaovian New Member

    Prof ng is from public hospital or private hospital? I was tot of trying iui at first. But iui seem like slow and cant commit the time for my husband due to his work. And ivf got co fund that why I would like to give it a try. But I didnt know the test not inclusive in the ivf...

    Private clinic. Iui and ivf should be similar time frames, all can be done within a cycle. But you're right on the timing. Just take note that regardless iui or ivf, your hubby still needs to be there.. hospitals here do not freeze unfertilised eggs.
     
  44. xiaovian

    xiaovian New Member

    Ya.. but iui also need to make sure I need to ovulation. Ivf there no need me to be ovulation. Am I right?
     
  45. flubberudder

    flubberudder Member

    For me, did simulated iui so the process v similar. Medication/injections to help with egg growth. Then one trigger shot to induce ovulation. The only difference is number of injections (more for ivf) and blood work for ivf. Both required similar number of visit to Dr, scans (about 2-3 before procedure)

    For iui - had about 2-3 eggs each round. Ivf - had >10 retrieved.
     
  46. xiaovian

    xiaovian New Member

    Oh.. for injection for iui if I not wrong got people say that is call soiui. I really very salute for all mummies go thru iui or ivf.. the medicine and the injection.

    i decided to go thru NUH as back then (2017) KKH had a waiting list so i went with NUH under Prof PC Wong. not sure if KKH still have a waiting list process now. but the good thing about NUH is scan and review done by the doctor then go up to CHR do blood test/collect meds if necessary. i used to be in and out in 30 mins. i heard KKH can be quite slow, hopefully they have sped up the process now. good luck to you!

    and oh my! is it true prof is semi-retired now??? was hoping to do my next fresh with him!
     
  48. xiaovian

    xiaovian New Member

    Ahhh... I just cant decide which hospital to go. People recommend me nuh for prof PC wong. And kkh for dr sadhana. Today kkh called me said if go thru polyclinic need about 5weeks. If go thru private will take about 1 week to see dr sadhana. I just worry about what if halfway prof PC wong retired before I done everything. Haha.. I can't make up my mind. Lol

    I totally know how u feel... I can’t decide on gynae too...... PrOf Tan at Mount E, dr Ng from SBCC, or find a new doc in KKH or NUH..... I’m worse than you hahah
