I have had a terrible sore throat since Friday and went to the doctors yesterday. I have strep throat!  :( They put me on antibiotics for 10 days.  I am supposed to go in on Monday for our teaching visit and start suprefact monday or Tuesday. I'm so afraid things will be cancelled.

 

Anyone ever dealt with this?? Should I call the clinic? The pharmacist said this will not interfere with the injections (I made her check).

I had the worst sore throat when I started my last cycle in November. I literally had no voice.  I was told that as long as you dont have a fever, it wont effect your cycle. Best of Luck !  Hope you feel better soon.

I had a major infection in my cornea at the time of my 1st IUI. I went for the IUI in the morning then directly to my opthamologist who admitted me to the hospital. My RE knew what was going on and said none of it would affect the success of the cycle. I was on 4 antibiotic & 2 steroid drops and taking morphine around the clock! It was a BFN but we later found extensive endometriosis.

Me: 32 SO: 32
Endometriosis - undiagnosed until laparoscopy in Jan 2012

No problems TTC #1, DS born in March 2008

TTC #2 since July 2009
Started seeing RE Sept 2010
Blood tests show I'm not ovulating, HSG shows right tube is blocked but hysteroscopy was all clear.

2010/2011
4 cycles clomid + TI = BFN
2 cycles clomid, repronex & progesterone + IUI = BFN

Diagnostic Laparoscopy tentatively scheduled for September 13th.

Lap cancelled 09/12/11 due to complete surprise natural BFP, Betas fluctuating, confirmed ectopic. Methotrexate on September 29th.

Diagnostic Laparoscopy rescheduled for January 10th, 2012. Right tube removed, too damaged from the ectopic to save. Lots of endometriosis found and cleaned up.

IUI#3 was a miserable failure. Did not respond at all to repronex. Taking a cycle off before trying Gonal-F

Another natural BFP on April 5th (SO's birthday)!!! EDD December 12th, Cole Marshall arrived December 8th, 7lbs 6oz!

Also was sick with strep throat during my successful IUI cycle. They said it would have no effect and that's the cycle we had our BFP. Basically was sick the entire 2 weeks on stims and for a few days after IUI. Good luck and hope you're feeling better.
