Started my medicated FET in sept thinking i should have sufficient time for Transfer before thh leave kkh. Now i am racing against time cos i did not know i need to take so much meds :(((

My D14 scan on monday is 5.9mm and i need min 7mm before transfer and my next scan is thurs. Hopefully i have at least 1.5mm lining growth.

Other than red bean, pomegranate what else is helpful? Need to spam this 2 days.
Some people suggested soy milk, eggs, protein shakes etc but none worked for me.. if it grows, it grows.. staying zen definitely is useful. Are u trying for your second baby?

Dear Sisters,
if you have frozen embryos and would like to transfer to THH’s new clinic, it’s FOC!
You may proceed to his new clinic and they can prepare the transfer document for you accordingly.

Yes I know. But it’s the procedure costs that will be killer. I am going to call in to visit him in November. In meantime, I’ve already made appointment with Dr Sadhana. When I called in KKH, they said THH’s cases will be handed over to Dr Liu.

Ahhh! Ok Thanks dear! I spammed red bean and whatever bean stuff i could have my hands on. I suddenly couldnt stomach beef for some reason or maybe i was just scarred by the bad quality ones haha. Yes i am trying for #2, the plan was not so fast but when i heard thh is moving and i thought ok maybe try first and i did not expect the cycle to be so long that now its a mad rush against time. Yes i am trying to zen!!

Oh wow! You mean you proceeded with 5.9mm? I had my scan yesterday and THANK GOD its 7.1mm maybe its the telling myself its ok and trying to zen or maybe its the red beans. but yes i had such a scare during my fresh and now i think back, yes being calm would have been useful tho sometimes the meds makes us a lill cray. So many challenges to overcome, lining and now hoping the embryo survives the thaw and tsf next Tue. Fingers crossed!

if its fresh yes! cos no cofunding. For FET THH said will be the same as KKH but KKH has cofunding so minimal out of pocket cash. if i BFP i will ask THH what are the procedure to transfer my records over. Hoping he has package at his new clinic.

Wow, what about the annual storage fee?

Transfer to THH's new clinic is free, admin fee to transfer out from KKH is about $120.

Does his new clinic do PGS/PGD?

Just did ET. Was told by kkh that thh will come back and do the procedure these 3 days thats why i proceeded with the thaw cycle at kkh.

End up 1mins before the procedure, they told me it will be dr jerry doing

I feel like kkh really disregards patients request or even consider patients feelings.

I dont know if its a miscomm by kkh and kkh just overpromise or thh just bail out

Dr THH is still around today. His last day is this Thurs. I just saw him for my appointment this pm. He even went off to do an emergency delivery. Might be a miscomm somewhere.

I did my IVF fresh cycle with Dr Liu Shu Ling. Successful on 1st fresh cycle. Currently about 9 weeks pregnant. I like Dr Liu - she is very matter-of-fact, but listens closely and will give recommendations. Planning to stay with her throughout pregnancy as well.

The person communicated to you must have been misinformed.
THH’s last day in the hospital is 24th. He started leave on 25th but will be back to see some patients before 31 Oct.

Thats what i heard too but they keep saying yes he will come back and do the procedure.

don’t worry, Dr Jerry is good as well. i was a patient under his care for case study on Spresto.
I hope so. I was on the brink of tears while changing to my gown cos they did not even bother to give me options just say dr jerry will do. Come go change. I know they do this everyday but a little empathy and effort to listen to our request wont hurt right.

I am really in pain from the transfer which wasnt the case leh :(

Dear ladies, do give some feedback on egg donation in Malaysia:

Singaporeans head to Malaysia, elsewhere to find IVF egg donors
Singaporeans have travelled as far as the United States and Australia to find an egg donor to help them have a baby, but many have also gone to Malaysia, checks by The Straits Times showed.. Read more at straitstimes.com.
www.straitstimes.com
www.straitstimes.com

Egg donation in Malaysia costs just S$16,300 (RM50,000) all inclusive with IVF treatment !!!

S’poreans head to Malaysia, elsewhere to find egg donors


Singaporeans have travelled as far as the United States and Australia to find an egg donor to help them have a baby, but many have also gone to Malaysia, checks by The Straits Times showed. Ms Christine Gautaman, who runs Heart to ART, a firm in Selangor that matches couples to egg donors, told ST about 20 per cent of her clients are Singaporeans who require an egg donor, a surrogate mother, or both. For example, she has had Singaporean couples where the wives were in their 20s but suffered from premature ovarian failure. In such a case, the ovaries stop functioning normally before the age of 40, and the woman would require donor eggs to conceive. Her other Singaporean clients are often older, some in their 40s. She said Singaporeans prefer to use an anonymous egg donor as they have no ties to the donor and can raise the child as their own.
The cost of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) using an egg donor is about RM50,000 (S$16,300). She said this covers the fees paid to the egg donor, the treatment to retrieve the donor’s eggs and the IVF procedure for the mother-to-be, which is performed in Malaysia.
Ms Gautaman did not say how much the donors are paid. She added that the egg donors at her agency are generally between the ages of 21 and 32, and many are degree holders. Some are even doctors, lawyers and accountants, she said. “These ladies are very well aware of the gift of life they are giving to their recipients and although they do receive some remuneration for their time and effort, they generally are doing this to help others,” said Ms Gautaman.
From January next year, women aged 45 and older will be allowed to undergo IVF here. Doctors cheered the move but they pointed out that many of these older women would need donor eggs to conceive even if they are allowed to undergo IVF here.
Dr Sadhana Nadarajah, senior consultant of the reproductive medicine department at the KK Women’s
and Children’s Hospital, explained that women in their late 40s and 50s will have to use donor eggs to
get pregnant. For women in that age group, if they are not menopausal, most of their eggs may be genetically abnormal by then, and it will be challenging to conceive using their own eggs, she said.
However, there are some women in their 20s who suffer from premature menopause and will also need
donor eggs to conceive. Doctors say egg donors in Singapore are uncommon due to the tedious procedures involved, the fact that they cannot be paid and that people are just uncomfortable with the idea as the child would be biologically related
to them.
None of the five women The Straits Times approached who used egg donors was willing to be interviewed.

Hello ladies, I didn't log in here for along long time after graduated from here almost 3 yrs ago. My DS is now 26mths.
Have one balance snow baby with KKH and decided to proceed in Oct as heard that Dr Tan HH is leaving. I had a similar experience as Sharkles, during my ET, the nurse told me that Dr Tan went for an emergency delivery and ask me to wait for an hour. After an hour, the nurse apologise again and said all cases by Dr Tan will be taken over by Dr Tan TY. I feel like left with no choice but to proceed. Doesn't feel good abt the doc as she seems abit cold and not positive abt my embryo when I ask her about it.

Today is 12dp3dt and I don't feel much symptoms. Jiayou and wish the ladies here all BFP!

Hi I am new here and will be doing ivf with doc Sadhana? Any review on her?
How is she? Cos she seems on the safe side. I am over 40+ yrs old so thought that I need more aggressive doctor due to age factor.
This will be my first ivf so I feel blur with all the procedure.

I tested on 8dp5dt, it was negative and i dont even see the slightest line on the kit. I thought to myself it might be a failed one cos i dint have any symtoms.

Tested again on 12dp5dt as i wanted to prep myself mentally for the BT 2 days later. The line appeared! Cfm with the digital kit the following day.

Give yourself more time if you dont see a positive response days before BT. The little one might just need more time.
