The Sniff Test

Today I collected my set of instructions from the clinic for phase two of this IVF.

This next bit is all about the nasal spray. I start sniffing like coke-fiend in about two weeks time to stop my ovaries doing what they do naturally. (HA! My ovaries are reluctant to ovulate at the best of time I reckon I'll only need a sniff of the suppressant to stop them ovulating - wait a moment that is all I'm getting.)

Not only that, but I have my womb scrape already booked in for the 16th of March.

Which is great because it has been 18 days since I last had a stranger shoving a dildo-cam up there and I am starting to get anxious to be back in the stirrups.

  1. It's a sad, sad world when nasal spray seems like a refreshingly pleasant way to get the drugs into your system...and when you're anxious to be back in the stirrups. Break the cycle this time!

  2. Sounds like us and paperwork and social workers. Gosh, we haven't met a social worker for at least two weeks - must be time for one to come round!

  3. I have that same feeling about the stirrups on a regular basis... I feel so odd when I go weeks without a rendezvous with the wand. Oh, the life of an infertile :)

  4. Things are moving along...stirrups and all. It is funny (not in a ha ha sort of way) how much one looks forward to being poked & prodded when you're on this crazy hamster wheel. Oh well, the important thing is that you're getting there!

  5. This round of IVF must really feel like a marathon to you.... I can't think of anything else you could be doing, so fingers crossed this will be the successful one for you. Fair play to you for your patience and perseverance through this round.

    So what's the next step after the scrape? How long from then to transfer? And when do you get to have the intralipids?

  6. I've never done the snorting but anything that avoids a) injections, and, b) shoving objects up one's ladybits is okay in my book.

    Good news about the scrape - things are really rolling. And I'm also curious about when you start the intralipids.

  7. That sound like a nice change to all the medication and injections. I feel the same way about the wand and all the testing. My last cycle went so quick I only got the wand twice instead of 4 or 5 times and it was so strange.

  8. You know, nasal spray does sound like an intriguingly different way to go about it. Good luck with it and with the womb scrape!

  9. I always find it so ironic that we take drugs to tell our bodies what to do or not do... it must get pretty confused !! FXd for your cycle xoxo

I've resisted word verification for ages but I'm getting so many spam comments at the moment that I think it is time. Sorry!
