    I act 2 pieces from the food store and my menses came the next day. I think got many others if u dont like pineapple. Google induce menses and u can find more. I feel pineapple good cos many vitamin c and some say eating the core helps in implantation. So i choose pineapple. Hope it helps.

    After my egg retrieval my Dr prescribe me some medication to be taken 5 days later to ensure the menses will come.

    Took one slice of pineapple and drank one glass of pineapple orange juice. Still no red.
    Called kkivf hotline, the nurse say can give meds to induce. Will be collecting it and start two days later (12 days after last bd) if no bfp.

    Shld be fine right?

    Hi @Otnum2, mine ivf will also starts in march as january is fully blocked & feb my mense is quite close to the CNY, so the nurse said it's quite risky, march will be safer. anyway, i will be going for my first time IVF counselling session on 16jan. have you gone through this already? if yes, what questions are important to ask/know during the session? i have no clue of what to ask also...

    JIAYOU ALL! wish all good luck & good news soon.

    Juz collected my meds for inducing menses. Apparently this is also the same meds for “an tai” if preg. So logically there shouldn’t be any issues whether im preg or not now.

    Getting excited

    Yes can add in longan. If heaty then remove the longan or pause 1 or 2 days. You can start drinking now. Tcm say can continue drinking during stimulation. Going for my scan and jab on sat.

    Hi lecia, i also did call kkh and since my menses most probably will come soon so i didnt request for meds. The nurse say will usually give a week supply of med and after that your menses should come in a few days time. Let all jiayou.

    My left ovary also far. First few days of scanning, they cannot scan any follicles. Only when it is nearer to date then they manage to scan. Dr manage to retrieve 13 follicles last cycle.

    Hi Ladies,
    I'm also in the Jan cycle. But my menses will only come end of next week as my last menses came very late. Will I still make it for Jan's cycle if my menses only come next week?

    I have finished my 5 days meds, but so weird that i don’t experience any tender breast or bloated or any single symptom. In fact my back ache seems to have been better after taking the meds, now i come to tink of it.

    Its so weird cos usually i will experience tender breast and backache and mood swings after O.

    Hopefully af will come in the next few days so i can start.

    Linglong, hows the past few days of stimm?
    Feeling excited for u too

    Hi daledale am i right to say when menses come on friday so u wait a day to become full flow then that is considered as cycle day 1? So saturday is d1? Right? I always get confuse with this as my menses if come in morning, it will be full flow in the evening.

    Linglong8191 Active Member

    Hi Lecia, your af should in 2 to 3 days time after medicine. Ijust went for my first scan today and done my first injection. Feeling excited also. Now just feel very tired and sleepy. Have to inject myself in the morning for this week and reviewing next week to see if my follicles are growing well.

    Actually my progesterone supposed to be 7days, after a talk with the kkh nurse, i tink i will continue two more days of the pills. Let god decide if i can make it for Jan ivf or delayed till March already.

    Hows the jab? Painful? How many jabs you doing now?
     
  31. Linglong8191

    Linglong8191 Active Member

    If you menses can fill a pad then it is full flow. Some ppl day 1 can be just spotting so 2nd day then consider full flow

    Hi... I just done my Egg Retrieval yesterday... Anyone had yours recently too?
    Day 1 of ER, so bloated, today it gets better...
    Been drinking lots of fluid & electrolyte & kept running to toilet too...
     
  34. Lecia

    Lecia Member

    hows the ER?
    painful?
    Good luck to you! Hope you have many good quality eggs and surviving the blast! :)

    They will sedate you so generally you won't feel anything, if pain is also the insertion of cannula to your vein to jab the sedation...

    So one thing for IVF mummies-to-be
    You have to overcome needles! Cause we have a bigger Mission!!

    I felt bloated post ER yesterday and today, have been taking lots of fluid and passing lots of gas too...

    Hi Daledale,
    You mean can go back to kkh to ask the nurse to jab? Need to pay? Do you have to queue long? I also don't dare to jab myself. Usually I ask my hubby to jab for me but he has work trip this weekend so I need to find someone to jab for me for 3 days. I'm thinking of going to nearby clinic but still have to take queue no. and wait for the doctor like a normal patient.

    Hi Fel C,
    Thanks for your reply. My menses just came yesterday and I've called KKH. So I'm still in the Jan cycle:) Will be going for my scan tomorrow morning.

    Yes need to pay. I did it last years was appx $160. Now they increase to $250 (Package unlimited jabs) so we decided to try jab ourselves save the $ & time. If you need jab 1-2 times they will charge you too. Actually it wasn't as scary as i thought to jab myself

    4th day post induce meds and still not seeing the red.
    Life is so ironic
    Just when you dread seeing the red, it just come on time every month without fail.

    And now when you are yearning for it to come, it decided to play hide and seek with you

    :confused:

    Happy for u that your menses finally came. Just in time. I dont know whether after u called them, they ask u quickly go down. But during the first meeting u go for scan then collect injections and learn to inject from nurse.
