Ah ok, thanks so much for quick reply! I was wondering whether private patient (instead of subsidised patient) at public/restructured hospital also affected. Let's hope the virus situation improves soon :)

Thanks ladies! I also just called CHR this morning and they did confirm that they are asking all their patients to cancel their upcoming procedures until dorscon returns to yellow again

Hi ladies anyone waited for more than 2 weeks for the harmony test results? My result is still pending and I was told it needs another week. Any idea if the test is still done in the US or locally now? TIA

Hi Ladies, I am in my 15th week now and have been off duphaston for 3 weeks now and my doctor has not restarted any support medicines again. I was on very heavy support medicine dose after procedure so still get anxious. Is it normal to be taken off the support medication? Also has any of your doctors recommended anti flu shot during this time? First time mom so get worried about everything.

I’m 14th week and not on any support other than multivitamin. Don’t worry as your placenta has taken over the job.

Hi,

I was taken off duphaston in week 10. Started having a little spotting in week 13 so my gynae prescribed 14 more days of duphaston just in case. Think the body supposed to be able to support that's why gynae took me off it. Shd be quite normal.
 
Hi IVF warriors, my husband and I have just started our first IVF journey this month. We are currently going through the initial tests for both me and him. Can someone summarize what to expect after doctor's review of these test results? I am a bit apprehensive and would be grateful for any advice from IVF warriors who had been there and done that =)
thanks!

Any recommendations for gynae at KKH for Twins?
Any Doc is ivf experience?
Hi!
The KKH doctor who took over my 2nd fresh ivf cycle is a young consultant, Dr Chua Ka Hee. I am 27 weeks pregnant with DCDA twins (a girl & a boy). So far, I am happy to be his patient. I dont have many questions like a list etc type of person. Rather, he is the one who will share what he thinks I have to know as a higher risk 39 yo pregnant woman w twins.

Thats all for now. Wrt C-sect skill, I shall update after my week 37 delivery in end May, hopefully.

Cheers.

I'm choosing to do water birthing. So it was recommended that NUH Dr Chitra is both good and pro water birth. But she's fully booked until next yr Apr. I went to take NUH Dr Vanaja instead, who's the next best, but there's mixed reviews about her.

Anyway, I think it depends on what birthing method you wish to take up. I went to attend a talk by doula agency FourTrimesters. Learned that some doctors are more into caesaerians than natural. U may wish to start from there.
Hi, how is your experience with Dr Vanaja so far?

Whose IVF treatment got stopped because of circuit breaker :(

I am supposed to do ivf this cycle, and yesterday Friday was my full flow, and Saturday they couldn’t do blood test until Monday, and guideline from moh came in last night, and so because due to this technicality, my IVF treatment has to postpone

Hi,

i was supposed to do my IUI this cycle. I called my clinic this morning & they said they all received a memo last night that Fertility treatments are considered as non-essential with effect from today.
Everything have to wait till after circuit breaker.

All govt hospital and private clinics are affected, priority will be given to woman above 35, low egg reserve or low sperm quality.
Those ongoing Ivf treatment will still be allowed to continue

I am most frustrated, if only my full flow came 1 day earlier

Oh means those who haven't started can't Start even if above 35?

yes, cannot, I had very bad experience at one of our local hospital, Friday morning already called in to inform them of full flow, but the nurse were busy and so only call back until late Friday afternoon, and assured me blood test next Monday will still be ok.

Friday evening the guidelines came, and so I’m denied this cycle and subsequent cycle until the extended circuit breaker ends

The nurse told me they cannot proceed unless moh gave exception, but the hospital is not willing to appeal for us, but we as patient are free to appeal.

i called moh for verification, and moh told me ivf will be allowed to proceed as long mense came before the circular was issued, however final decision will still be with the doctor and hospital.

Moh was also curious why is it patient doing the appeal and not the hospital doing it too.

Just my luck I feel

I'm currently 6 weeks+ pregnant after my first ivf cycle at KKH. My next ultrasound will be during week 8 and it seems that after that i will be seeing a regular O&G doctor. Can any ivf mummies advise if it's better to continue as a subsidised patient or a private patient? I did not get a polyclinic referral when i started seeing Dr Sadhana. seems that she is recommending me to continue as a private patient. She recommended a few O&G docs to me: Dr Ada Ng, Dr Sheri Lim and Dr Jill Lee. thanks.
