My husband and I are doing our first IVF attempt October 2011. I'm 27 (will be 28 by then) and my husband is 31. We have male factor infertility issues (1% morphology). I have read the books, done my research, talked to my RE and generally know what to expect.
But I am wondering if you have any tips and/or advice on anything? Anything you wish you would have known before you started the process or during the process? Any surprises?
Thank you for any help.
Try to relax. The medications you have to take put you on an emotional roller coaster. The needles in the butt are the worst as you have to use a thicker needle for the progesterone in oil. You will need someone to give you injections every evening at about the same time.
For our last cycle, I was so stressed, I knew the cycle wouldn't work. It was a dFET cycle. 35 weeks later, I was holding my twins in my arms.
