Each ivf fresh cycle will cost abt $10k to $15k at KKH. For female sg citizens below 40 yrs old, there will be govt grants for 3 fresh and 3 frozen cycles. Hence, there will be minimal cash outlay. Hope this info helps. :)

Nope leh. Dr also cant find the cause of no implantation. :( My tubes are not blocked but my issue is low egg reserve so v few eggs are being retrieved from my first cycle.

Yap, started my 2nd fresh cycle this mth and due for ER tmr. In Apr, KKH has blk out dates from 16 to 21 Apr. So wld u be doing yr 2nd fresh cycle in May?
If it falls under this period then I'll started my 2nd cycle in May.
All the best to you!

Hi. I'm new here.
Got endometriosis and blocked tubes.
1st cycle ivf unsuccessful due to no implantation.
Now consulting Thomson chinese medicine for acupuncture.
My 2nd ivf cycle starts in Apr/may.
Anyone have the same issues like me and got pregnant eventually? I'm getting disheartened, losing faith.
Hi Jena Tay sorry to hear about this.
Where did you do your IVF?
Keep trying. Never give up.

Hi Fafy, itz normal not to see the drs at this stage. The ER date from first day of menses DIFFERS between individuals. ;) My ER date for this cycle is 12 days from my 1st day of menses. Good luck to u in yr ivf!!

Hey Fafy, Is your tube being removed due to the ectopic? I had the same situation like you before and mine tube is being removed on 1 side. :)

Hi!! I am new to this forum and am really nervous about my upcoming ivf with Dr Tan Hh at kkh.

The plan is to do it in April. I have PCOS and sadly, my HSG scan in December showed that I had unicornuate uterus (having only one Fallopian tube and a small uterus).

Dr Tan has mentioned that he can only place one egg during ivf.

Loads of luck for all your ivf!

Hi jennycsy! No i did not. I opt for the injection thingy. At tht point of time, everything was so fast. One day i was preg and the next day doc say i cant keep it. I opt for the injection as it doesnt sound so scary as operation but still it was a long procedure :| Wat about you? U goin thru IVF as well?

Anyway i just went for another appoint just now. Doc say my uterine lining is not tht gd- only 4 but i have few folliciles and 2 of them is growing a lil fast than the others. I remebered one of the right one is 12.5 but i guess i have still a long way to go :| doc gav me 2 more 300 puregon and ganirilex. Have to scan again on wed


Now: need help n tips on to thicken my uterine lining and grow my egg.

Hi Fafy, I can totally unds wat u r goin thru as this is my 2nd cycle with KKH. Wah, u eat 5 egg whites in a day? How do u manage that? I ate 2 eggs + 2 egg whites for 3 days b4 my ER and I oredi felt like puking. Hehe.

I also drank red bean soup. But I think I only drank less than 4 times for my current cycle. As it was takeaway from the hawker centre and the soup was too sweet, I only ate the red beans and drank v little soup.

Good luck to u in yr scan this Wed! :)

@Fafy u r most welcome. U r so cute. Haha. Do u mean that u r puking at the KK kopitiam when u r eating the eggs OR the red bean soup is the culprit? :D
