1st IUI with injections... due to start... any tips?
you may remember me from trying to conceive, then lttc now I am here! well we are due to start SO IUI in the next few weeks (consent form signing on 19th the meds lesson on 27th) the we will have our plan and be good to go... anyone else due to start soon?
I am speaking to some lovely ladies who are having ivf/icsi and I think the first phase of my treatment is similar, with the down reg and then stimms.
1) I was wondering if anyone knows what cycle day I would start down regging on? My next period is due on the 27th (same day as injection lesson) so I am hoping I can start with that cycle. Or will I need scans and blood work before I start?
2) Do you know how much time off work I will need? this is such a hard one... I have swapped some shifts so far (I work in retail) and that hasnt been a problem and I have used a days annual leave. My clinic is an hour away so its not a quick journey.
3) When you are stimming are you scanned/ bloodwork every other day? if so I may take some days annual leave.
Thanks everyone I know I should wait and ask the hospital just nice to get other peoples experiences : ) can feel quite alone if you do not have friends or family who have been through it.
All the best for anyone 'trying' and fc for our bfp's!
