I was terrified the first time. Now I know what to expect. I do remember it, but it felt like I was ridiculously drunk. I remember saying it hurt and then geting more drugs and then pretty much sleeping after that. My boyfriend got to watch all the follicles getting sucked dry, but i was too dopey for my eyes to focus.
Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't call it super-easy, but it was ok. I'm much less anxious now that I'm doing cycle #2. Once I was home, I felt totally fine.
You'll be ok!
I'm 41 with endo
IVF #1: March 2016: Long protocol: Suprefact (200)/Menopur (225)
9 follicles => 4 eggs => 3 mature => 3 fertilized (ICSI) => 2 blasts (one transferred, one frozen)
IVF #2: June 2016: Microdose flare: Suprefact (40 BID)/Menopur (150)/ Gonal (300)
7-10 follicles (?) => 12 mature eggs => only 4 fertilized w/ICSI => transferred 2 @ 3days and 1 blast frozen
BFP: day 14 beta = 93, day 18 beta 557 (37h doubling time)
.... it stuck and we welcomed our boy March 2017!
