anev :  the only out of pocket expense is one of the meds, for a total of about 200 euro. Everything else is on the ssn. This is true for Lombardy only so far, as other regions do ask the couple to cover about a third of the cost of the whole thing.

We have a 3 retrieval limit at this hospital, and a total of 10 tries on the ssn, before we can’t try anymore.A cycle is considered a try only if it starts with a retrieval, so any embryo that gets frozen can get implanted without counting as a try, as embryos can’t be destroyed in our country,so if they’re not used they will stay frozen in the hospital virtually forever.

anev :  my protocl is 12 days of BCP, baseline appointment, then estrace for I think 12 days. Then another lining check, and if that goes well, I’ll start PIO and the transfer will be 5 days later! I’m hoping everything goes smoothly! With my twins, I had no issues with my lining thickening so I hope thats still the case 3.5 years later!

I started Meropur 2 days ago. I have the next scan on Monday to see how things are going. I’m excited!

anev :  I started on Weds and the side effects have been horrific!!! Intense nausea and stomach issues as well as water retention?! ugh! The brand is Nortrel and I’ve never had side effects like this before! I only have 8 more days left of it thankfully but I’m definitely not handling the stomach problems well! I’m thinking of emailing the clinic tomorrow but I also don’t want to have to start all over again with a new brand when I only have 8 days left….

I’m starting to be bloated too, and my ovaries are so crampy! It worries me a bit, as I’ve only done 3 injections so far

Had my second scan this morning, everything looked good and I started the second medication I was given(fyremadel).

Pick up will be either Friday or Saturday, they will decide Wednesday at the next scan!

Pick up will be Friday. They counted 9 follicles, but I think I heard them saying that only 5 are usable. I hoped for more, but they kind of aim for this type of numbers, to avoid overstimulation, so I think it’s fine, it’s just my need to overachive that’s speaking πŸ˜€ endo on the other hand is looking very good!
