We’re doing Long protocol IVF.

I thought I had a choice of doing the egg collection and transfer at Manchester or Leeds, apparently I don’t get a choice, and I have to go to Leeds. I’m not allowed to drive after either procedure, and can’t get the train too because I’ll be very doped up and I need to arrange someone to come and collect us from Leeds hospital as DH doesn’t drive. Annoying, but what can you do?

1st Scan – has to be on day 21 of my next cycle (I estimate this will be around 20th Oct) I also have to have some blood samples taken
Start Injections for two weeks. (yay!!)
Prob back in around 3rd Nov for another scan
Start second injections around 5th Nov
Back in the next Wednesday (10th?) for scan
Back in on Friday (12th?) for another scan
I might have to go in on the weekend too, depending on the scan results from Weds/Fri
Possible scans on Mon or Tues,15th/16th Nov, again totally depends on what the previous scans show.
Once everything is “ready” I have to do the final injection, then 36 hours after this I go to Leeds for egg collection. I wish i knew when this was, but it's anybodys guess given it totally depends on the scan results,

They've told us they are only going to transfer one embryo. They've said they'll consider two, if they are poor quality, but if the quality is good and it's my first time doing IF, they are only going to transfer one.

I do understand their reasons for just doing one, but i have to say i'm a bit upset, i feel like my chances of success have been halved before i've even started. I know the SET advocates say it doesn't matter, but i'm still a bit upset.

But, all in all, a pretty good appointment.

Congrats! So where are you right now in the process...did they put you on Birth Control Pills? I am on day 12 of Birth Control Pills and go for my final consult for iVF on Oct. 7th. I am not sure if I am doing long or short....but have heard better things about doing the long.

Let me know how you are doing and how it goes! It will be nice having someone who is around the same time as me! Yay!

I hope all goes well!
I can't believe they aren't much willing to do two...That's unusual. I though it as up to you...Weird.
I can't wait to see how it all goes for you!

I'm not on BCP, they aren't putting me on it, i have a natural cycle, then on day 21, they scan me to confirm i o'd, then start injections.

I'm a bit bummed they won't let me do two, but they said because i'm 27, and it's my first go, they only want to do one. They are really trying to cut down a IVF twins in the UK, the clinics are under a lot of pressure to always do SET, and only a double if there is good reason.

Looks like a hectic, but good, schedule! Will you be able to do your scans in Leeds? How far is this from where you live?

I hope that you get a perfect embryo to transfer back in. Will they freeze the others?

I did a similar protocol -- The long Lupron protocol where they don't put you on BCPs.

GL!

And I was 25 when I did IVF -- They did SET and I have a 14 month old from it They told me from the get go I would have twins if i did 2 embies. I am glad I only did one since it took

I'm also starting IVF this month! I'm on day 9 of BC and will talk to my IVF coordinator today to find out the details. I'm scheduled for my retrieval the last of Oct or first of November.

Lots of prayers for us all!

How exciting. My dr office is two hours away and I have to have DH drive to the ER and ET but I think I could drive after the transfer, just not the retrieval. My dr will put 2-3 depending on quality. We put two in both times, perfect quality, and both times I got one baby out of the deal. I hope your one sticks
