IVF Journey: HPV High Risk + Polyps

Hello ladies, hope everyone is doing well.

I am 37yo (Sept 2019), husband 38yo. We have been married for 2 years with no success of getting pregnant. Finally decided to see a fertility clinic, one at overseas, Raffles Hospital Fertility Clinic, and KKH Assisted Reproduction Clinic D. All three clinics suggested IVF right away due to our ages and the period of trying to conceive (ttc).

Did ultrasounds and pre checks at Raffles. Being a private clinic, they recommended IVF treatment right away, but the cost quoted is max 20k (due to follicles, age etc)

Decided to get subsidized rates and co funding at KKH. Had to sit through the long wait at a polyclinic for the referral letter. While it is great that the Clinic D require a thorough check before referring us to KK IVF Clinic, being a public hospital, the tests appointments take forever.

Found out I am a carrier of Thalassemia blood trait. Husband is normal. Test took a month for results.

The pap smear and HBV test revealed i am a HBV high risk.

Next, I was scheduled for a HyPoSy to check tubes and uterus for polyps. Test was super painful..!! Found out I have a polyp.

Last test was a colposcopy which confirmed I have very mild pre cancer HPV cells.

I was initially upset that I had to jump through so many loops and waiting game before I can proceed with IVF. But now these tests shed a lot of light on my infertility.

Anyone else have gone through something similar? Since I am using the gov subsidy, will I not be able to choose my own IVF doctor later on?

Will the polyp removal be subsidized as well? Can we use Medisave?

I am so sad that i have HPV pre cancer cells on my cervix. Have to go every 6 months to check and monitor. However, the doctor at the Colposcopy Suites gave me the green light for IVF.

Hi dear, so sorry to hear about your situation, the fibroids will hinder implantation so that is most probably why your IUI failed.. I read extensively on this and while there are women who can get pregnant with polyps, fibroids unfortunately can grow big very fast.. I actually have a tiny one (less than 1mm) on the posterior uterine wall which they did not remove because they can barely see it.. My mom had multiple fibroids which grew so much over the years, it caused her belly to grow big and completely engulfed the entire uterus.. As she did not want any more children, she had her womb removed.. Sorry for the scare but sharing my personal experience.. Wish you the very best of luck on your upcoming surgeries. It's ok to start IVF much later, your body will need to heal.. Sending you love xxxx
