    I was with Kkh and assigned to Jessie poon to do my er and et. I was considered very lucky to succeed in my first try since I’m in my late 30s. Reason why I’m writing this is to encourage those who are in their late 30s not to give up hope as I know the chances ain’t high ... but there always chances...

    Hi, the nurse told me for ladies doing diff processes. Diff block out dates. Pls see the below.

    My appt with Dr Tan HH is 10am, I get to see him around 1pm plus. I had a lunch and back and the 2nd one is me. Dr Tan will be busy with ivf procedures and baby deliveries, halfway while waiting. He need to help so therefore need to wait very patiently.

    Hi nutty_hazel;
    Thanks

    So i guess my natural fet next cycle will hit the block out dates..

    Any one can advise me the procedure of natural fet? I.e which days need to do scanning.. which day do transfer?
    How many leave is giving after transfer?
    Etc

    Thanks in advance

    Natural FET included a lot of scanning of follicles , lining and test when is ur ovulation. The scanning will be a lot more esp near ur ovulation time. 3 days of leave after transfer.

    if you have a particular medical issue which hinders your chances of conceiving, I would say definitely choose your dr as dr will tweak your protocol and follow your case. I think lesser attention is given for subsidized patients and you usually wont see senior consultants.
    thh has good reputation and build up a huge volume of positive track record. so many ppl want to see him until he has no time. so if you are concerned of the amount of waiting time and face time with dr, suggest look for others. I like dr liu shuling but didn't do ivf with her.

    go early better than late. sometimes nurse don't follow appointment time, just follow the order of who has "check in" for the appointments.

    Hi nutty_hazel

    If i am able to knoe my ovuation time, mayb the number of scan is lesser?
     
  18. Nutty_hazel

    Nutty_hazel Member

    I am afraid no, u still need to do scanning of follicle. But got one time, the nurse asked me to do ovulation at home.
    For natural FET, need to keep track on lining and ovulation at the same time.
     
  19. shigure1234

    shigure1234 Member

    So did u succeeded in natural FET?

  21. shigure1234

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum. Can anyone share how much is the private rate versus subsidised rate for IVF at KKH? And how is the queue like (i.e. how many months to start the IVF process for both scenarios) I'm currently a private patient at KKH and am thinking if I should re-queue as subsidized patient if the private rate for IVF at KKH is similar to those private hospitals. Thanks all.

    I only know subsidy rate is see different doc de. Not ur principal doc that will access the condition. So later u will come across diff doc tell u diff things. U no need re-queue u can just downgrade will do.

    The cost of ivf is the same. Only the followup after ivf is different. If subsidise you cannot choose which doc to do er & et. I upgrade from subsidise to dr tan hh cause the cost of ivf is the same. Did my pretest under subsidise.

    Sorry may i know what is ER & ET means?

    Do all of us have to go thru iui b4 ivf?
    How is the waiting time like? Do my hub need to go along for this first appt?

    paiseh.. so many questions.:)
     
  32. yenni26

    yenni26 Active Member

    Hi

    ER - Egg Retrieval
    ET - Egg Transfer

    No worry u can ask anything... Once u start doing IVF you will get to know more..
    I didn't do IUI.. I straight go for IVF .. Maybe for other people may consider 2nd option for IVF if they failed IUI.
    You mean waiting time to c Dr Tan for consultation? If your appt is at 10am, waiting time about 15-30min. Yes, is best to ask ur hubby to accompany you go.

    You are doing IUI or IVF? This is your 1st time?

My concern is will the hsg result out already by Thursday wen I see him? Or I should postpone my app. I check the schedule, the next available slot is 28 Jan...=(

    Hi yenni, you mean we can go for ivf without trying iui first? I thought they have a standard protocol, if fail iui then can do ivf

    Hi,
    Yes yes.. Unless u keen to try IUI as is less ex but chances is slightly lower ten IVF.. If not u can straight start w IVF..

    Daledale Well-Known Member

    Yes consultation at clinic d will be alot more expensive. Ivf cost is the same thou.
    First consult with Dr tan appx $160. Subsequently is $107 including gst. All the blood test and stuff will be not subsidise in future cause they upgrade you to private patient once you choose doctor.

    Hi ladies, i just failed my first IVF long cycle. Only able to retrieve 3 eggs but 0 was fertilised successfully. So I didn't went for ET. Was wondering how soon can I start the second fresh cycle. Any advises? Will the second cycle be a long cycle or short cycle?
     
  44. MichNg

    MichNg Well-Known Member

    sorry to hear that.
    have you done the post ivf review? at that session, you should discuss this questions with your dr. examine the possible reasons for low follicle count, low fertilisation, long vs short protocol, any ohss, etc.
    usually it is recommended to wait at least 2 menses so that your body has gone back to usual cycle.
     
  45. Jumbokitty

    Jumbokitty New Member

    Thank you MichNg. Probably it's due my egg quality is poor. I have endometriosis and ovarian cysts. My post IVF review is scheduled 1 month later. Is it usually the case? There's no available timeslot within my hospitalisation leave days. So I have to wait. I'm currently under subsided rate. I'm thinking to switch to private class under Dr Tan HH or switch to Thomson under Dr SF Loh. Any advises?

    Linglong8191 Member

    Hi jumbokitty was just curious why yours was a long cycle for first ivf? Btw which hospital are u with? During your scan, how many follicles did u usually have? If few, y didnt the doctor advise you to stop ER? What are the injection and dosage u injected? You are most likely able to start your next fresh after 3 month. Sorry for so many question.
     
  47. Jumbokitty

    Jumbokitty New Member

    Hi Linglong8191, I'm in KKH. They suggest long cycle because of my medical condition. Basically I need more lucrin injection to suppress endometriosis, so that the success rate is higher. But unfortunately I still failed. Intially they only see 1 big and 2 small follicles but still advise me to go for ER. Doctor told me because my AMH is low, if I stop this cycle, next month the number of follicles would still be more or less the same. I injected 10 unit of lucrin for 28 days. For egg stimulation period, I injected 3 vials of pergoveris every morning. Are you in short cycle? How's it going?
     
  48. Linglong8191

    Linglong8191 Member

    Hi jumbokitty, i am in my d5 of injection till today. I also have low AMH and is in short protocol. I am in 300 unit of gonal f till today with added injection of organltran. Dont be sad. At least you know for your egg quality, u need improvement like start taking supplement to improve egg quality. Jia you.
