I just push the applicator in as far as is comfortable and then release the tablet. Good luck!

Hey! I had 18 eggs retrieved, 17 mature 11 fertilized with ICSI (husband has 0% morphology) ...sitting here waiting for today's call...man time moves slowly waiting for these calls lol. The ER went better than I had expected..recovery good..I'm 2 days post and other than just my ovaries feeling huge I'm in no pain, no bloat. So I'm guessing that's good?!

Just got my blood results back from my Dr and looks like a PCOS diagnosis is in the cards. She says my combo of irregular/heavy periods, weight gain, elevated DHEA-S levels points to PCOS. Anyone else dealing with this diagnosis and trying to conceive? From my research it looks like iui shouldn't be affected by it... but any personal experience would be much appreciated

I was just chatting with the office manager about that.  She said they are super swamped right now, with 50-60 referrals a week!  You can ask to be put on the cancellation list, she said that many people cancel.  It all depends on so many factors as to when they can get you in.  Has your dr referred you yet?

For those who have recently done a FET consult, is it just a chat or is there an exam as well?  Just wondering if I can take my toddler with me

I had a FET consult in February. I had a chat with Dr. H to set up a timeline and then did a quick internal u/s. I received requisitions for blood work and instructions to call in my next period. All in all we were only there for 20 minutes. I can't recall if we brought our toddler to that appointment, however she has been to the clinic for other appointments, including one in which I had an u/s.

I can't speak to wait times but definitely ask to be put on their cancellation list.

They confirmed they had received the referall and said they would get in touch once they have an appointment date.
