Hi all. I just found out that my ivf was not a success. I did a fresh cycle in Feb and a frozen in March and now this one in April was a fresh cycle. I was not able to freeze anything so I would have to start again. I know some of you guys have been through this. How do I stop feeling worthless and should I even try again. My RE says i should take off a month and start all over. My DH says to take the summer off and start again. I really feel like I let my husband down. I know nothing is guaranteed with this but we all invest so much. I justthoughtit would work this time. Should I try again?
Thank you so much. That really made me feel better. My doctor wantds me to wait three weeks and start again. I would rather wait three months and try and loose the weight I gained from the meds and then try again. Does that make any sense?
That completely makes sense to me. You need to get you "ready" to be "taken over" for 9 months. So take the three months off to do whatever you need to get YOU ready. I have been reading that yoga and acupuncture are popular amongst women going through IVF. Maybe look into some of that... Good luck with whatever you decide!
I am on my first ivf cycle, but feel like this is an emotional rollercoaster for both our bodies and mind. I would completely agree with you if you want to take 3 months off and do whatever brings you pleasure and happiness. Take it easy, relax, rejuvineate and when you start the process again, I hope all your wishes and dreams comes true...
Thank you so much. My RE actually made me feel like I am too old to take off until after the summer. I am turning 38 in October so maybe he is right. I am too much a wimp to stand up to him. still trying to decide what to do but thanks for the support. It is invaluable.
