Access fertility price plan

When it comes to paying for fertility treatment, it’s obviously not cheap, and no matter how much you shop around you’re not going to find anything that fits within your budget unless you’re lucky enough to be well off financially. We came across Access Fertility a while ago when we had our counselling session atContinue reading “Access fertility price plan”

Following our 3rd IVF failure

On October 2nd we went to see our fertility specialist to have our final follow up appointment and discuss what we can do next. We sat and spoke about our previous cycles, and she told us there are many things that could be causing our cycles to fail and that we may never find thatContinue reading “Following our 3rd IVF failure”

Test Day no.3

September 3rd, we woke up super early again, around 5:30am ish. SO nervous! My heart began racing the second I opened my eyes. I just don’t know if I can take another fail, and I don’t know what we will do about affording treatment if this hasn’t worked. I went to the bathroom and doneContinue reading “Test Day no.3”

Onto our 3rd and final funded cycle

Bloody hell. This is scary stuff. If it doesn’t work this time around, we have to pay. A LOT of money.

Official test day!

June 24th, our official test day! God we were sooo nervous to test this time. I hadn’t done an early test so had no idea what to expect. We just wished for 2 clear lines on the pregnancy test! I felt as though it would be positive, I couldn’t see any reason why I wouldn’tContinue reading “Official test day!”

Back to the 2ww

This time around I was feeling much more relaxed! I had the mindset of, what will be will be and there is nothing I can say or do that can change what the outcome will be. We just need to wait and see, and I didn’t want to feel anxious and stressed throughout the wholeContinue reading “Back to the 2ww”

Embryo transfer no.2

June 13th came around and we were sat waiting to be called through to have a frozen embryo transfered. It was much easier for me to have a full bladder this time without the pain from stimulating and egg collection, however I think I was a bit toooooo keen on having a full bladder becauseContinue reading “Embryo transfer no.2”

Internal scans and my side effects to medications.

May 31st we went for an internal scan to measure the lining of my womb. The scan showed I was measuring just under the required 8mm at 7.6mm, so they decided to double my dose of oestrogen tablets from 6mg a day to 12mg and booked another scan for June 7th. Those oestrogen tablets madeContinue reading “Internal scans and my side effects to medications.”
