    hi Ladies,

    If all goes well, I will be having my FET cycle during May-June time frame. My first IVF failed, as in, I miscarried at 12 weeks. So hopefully this time things turn around well. Please pray for me too ladies!

    Thank You PPC for the inputs! I havent started on the shots yet. I m mentally preparing myself for this.
    Did you do the IVF in US? Did your insurance cover any?

    Dont worry. Keep yourself strong! All the very Best for your coming treatment. God Bless!

    Hi PPC,

    Thanks for your reply.. all best for next cycle. We will try, but result by god. I have started my ICSI treatment last november 2012, but middle of cycle some problems, so we cancelled.

    Hey,

    Not yet. doctors do not know the cause. They checked for chromosomal issues and there were none.

    hi there,

    ya, you are right. You need to reduce your weight and also keep your body cool. During injections, you need to cool your body drinking lots of water or other fluids as the injections cause heat and fatigue in the body. Start eating healthy from now on. Eat lots of proteins for egg growth. Have enormous amounts of pomogranetes, pappaya (for now alone) along with other fruits and veggies.

    During injections you can eat a lot of sprouts for a good quality protein diet that aids egg and also embryo growth later.

    All the best.

    Hi there Happy Person!

    Yes I did my first cycle of IVF in the US and most of it was covered by our insurance. We also have a financial aid with the clinic and we are paying them at monthly installments. That kinda helps makes it a little easier to manage the finances. When do you anticipate doing your first cycle and where are you, btw?

    Take Care,
    PPC

    Hello PPC

    That is so nice your insurance covers most of the cost. Which insurance do you have?

    I am in Denver and planning IVF with CCRM in March/April time frame. I have United Health Choice Plus. Looks like they will not cover anything related to IVF. Any tips? These guys are saying it would cost 17-20K USD.

    Take care
