Hey guys,

Anyone currently having ivf long protocol?

Me soon!! Just waiting for my first period since a miscarriage from my second FET. This will be my third and last FET and the first time I’ve done a long protocol with a FET (fresh cycle was long, last FET was short) will feel strange going back on buserlin to down regulate this time but the consultant said they are having better results with it 🤷‍♀️

Good luck with both of yours x

Yes my first round we are having icsi too due to male factor, just worried it won’t go smoothly but not expecting it to tbh. Also bit scared about side effects. Can I ask how old you are? X

@Mctm123 sorry to hear about your miscarriage I hope your fet goes well. Did you get any major side effects from buserelin? Thankyou good luck to you too x

@Idontlikeithere1 thank you. No none really apart from the odd hot flush...I was expecting to feel all kinds of crazy side effects throughout the whole process an honestly it was so much easier than I thought. I have a massive needle phobia and I injected myself the whole cycle an was so proud of myself....I still hate needles but they were absolutely fine honestly. Try not to worry, easier said than done I know but I built up the process that much in my head but it was actually quite exciting doing it as I felt I was doing ‘something’ after 4 (well nearly 5 now) years of ttc a sibling for our little one...(naturally conceived after 9 months - makes no sense does it!!) oh and we have low motility so done ICSI also x

Don’t be, fingers crossed all goes well for you. Yes I’m 27, how about yourself? I’ve never been pregnant before.

@Mctm123 I hope this all goes well for your sorry about your miscarriage.

How long in weeks does the long protocol usually take?

Good luck xx

@Hh92 thank you xx

It’s different for everyone but normally about 6/7 weeks...then you’ll be booked in for egg collection, then it’s normally 3/5 days after that for your transfer...it all depends on how you respond to the drugs but you’ll be scanned an informed about that along the way xx

I’m 28 and 29 soon. Had first buserelin injection today and got to say I really worked myself up for nothing! Didn’t even feel it go in xx
