COQ10/Ubiquinol is taken to improve egg quality. I would advise a 3months frame. Take it to improve quality of egg you will produce.

[quote author=Itissettled3 post=63061661]For accupuncture I used a guy. His name is Essien.
0*8*0*3*3*8*6*7*7*2*2
I did the first session before transfer and another session after transfer.

He has different packages including some electric bla bla. I chose the cheapest as money no dey. I paid 15k for each session. Did 2 and paid 30k.

You have to be careful about taking this drug cos it has too many side effects pls. Ensure your doctor prescribes it for you before taking it pls.

[quote author=thermolady post=44870297]To God be ALL the glory, I got my BFP and a scan confirmed pregnancy at Olivebranch Lekki this week! grin This is coming after over 19 years of TTC that included several years of natural health therapies, countless IUI s, Clomid & TI cycles and 9 embryo transfers. This clinic has indeed become my last TTC ‘bus stop’ as I had prayed and hoped.

My sisters-in-waiting, it was God’s mercy at work. What I think also helped me was:

*RESEARCH, research & more research! Pls. don’t put yourself 100% in ANY doctor’s hands without researching your options & being able to request whatever will benefit you.
*Doing a vagisteam before starting meds. Combined dried herbs like basil, motherwort, rosemary & mugwort (obtained from Alade market Ikeja)
*Insisting on the cancellation of the penultimate scheduled embryo transfer when my lining refused to grow beyond 7mm (many other Drs.' would have railroaded and gone ahead anyway, just hoping to get 'lucky' as they sometimes do for even much thinner linings.) In this successful cycle my lining was 9.4mm before intro of progesterone & 11.1mm on day of Embryo Transfer.
*Doing needle acupuncture EVERYDAY in the 12 days before the embryo transfer (was able to fit in a session on the very morning as the transfer was done in the afternoon) using acu-points that aid blood flow to uterus.(located my Lagos acupuncture clinic thru online research)
*Using Viagra cream - not tablets, vaginally (sourced from a Canadian Dr. in Malaysia and Bricanyl tablets (from Alpha) for about 11 days - also to increase blood flow. ; in fact Dr. Emeka agreed to delay down regulation, giving me 2nd shot of Zoladex after expiration of 1st one, in order for me to receive the Viagra parcel (research also shows though more expensive, Zoladex gives higher success rates than daily Buserelin injections)
*Castor oil pack on tummy almost daily for about two weeks
*Daily sitz baths (alternating sitting in hot & cold water), sometimes twice daily, stopping 2 days before the transfer – also to increase blood flow.
*Sometimes soaking feet in hot water for 20 minutes, before bed (also to increase blood flow to uterus)
*Day 21 Endometrial Scratch (had also done one before at another clinic the previous year)
*Femoral massage: got hubby to press artery for me at least once daily & at the clinic just before the transfer
*Having intralipid drip at the clinic one week before the transfer - with the general absence of availability of immune tests in this country, it’s a good safeguard whether or not your body actually needs it.
*Daily eating 5 Brazil nuts (ASDA uk) before transfer & throughout 2 week wait. Was able to get pineapple only on 4th day after transfer so ate its core only on Days 4 & 5..
*Doing a deep tissue body massage 2 days before the transfer (got a bargain package – there are several, on dealdey site)
*Insisting on Day 5 transfer: after so many past failures and disappointments, I had made up my mind after research that even if all our embryos appeared to be struggling, no Day 2 or 3 transfer; if they all died before Day 5, so be it. Luckily we had 90% ICSI fertilisation and all made it to blast.
*After the transfer, taking DAILY injections (with Dr’s permission) of 100mg Gestone in addition to clinic’s 2x 400mg cyclogest; quite painful & bum already feels like a pin cushion but for me no sacrifice is too much. Clinics here do not do regular hormone checks for levels after the transfer so it makes me feel safer. I’m also prepared to endure the daily injections for as long as necessary!
*Just before the transfer, requested & got a picture of our embryos which I used as a point of contact in prayer.

What I’ve learnt (the hard way) on my long, long TTC journey:
No doctor, spouse, family or friend, can desire my success more than my own self: I am my own best advocate! My sisters, despite glowing recommendations of any fertility clinic/Dr, do your own research. Never be afraid to ask questions and always try to go with your gut feelings; run/’talk to your feet’ if you have integrity concerns about any of them; I have also learned that though often tedious and inconvenient, it pays to try to prepare as much as one humanly can (castor oil, massage, foot soak, etc), before the embryo transfer and above all, to always pray for God’s mercy & intervention.

Hope this will help...pls carry your doctor along before implementing any ....ask questions based on your research...I observed that she(thermolady) worked closely with her doc.

Also, a fertility nurse advised that its good to test n treat typhoid n malaria (if any) before embryo transfer.

Above all, PRAYER is the Key! May God cause us to sing Songs of Victory in Jesus name...Amen!

Sis, the drug is a very strong one. It has plenty side effects. My Dr didn't prescribe it for me. I bought and took one tablet everyday and I didn't take it religiously cos I was scared.

Thank you all for your prayers. I pray that there shall be showers of fruitfulness in this forum in 2018.
@ twintower, healing of surgery is different for pple. As this one u had is even a non invasive surgery, u can go for ur IUI when u feel ur body is ready. My advice is to check hormones as said by wonyi in order to know which supplements to take @ certain days of your cycle. Wishing you best luck.

Thank you my dear,I will check for the hormones also,I called the hospital and they said the earlier the better,although I don't know why he made that statement

Yes its for immune issues. Serves same purpose as predni**sone/predniso**lone but is more effective bc its strictly for immune issues.
My dear sister, insist on one of the above to be prescribed for u bc belief me it makes a whole lot of difference. Many testify that steriods made the difference in their positive cycle.
Started my fourth journey today. Frist lupron shot in preparation for ivf no 4. This will be a success, that I know.

Thanks sis

Some people have gotten pregnant in the same month they did a laproscopy. There is really no need to wait. As long as u dont feel sore n are ok to baby dance go right ahead. Pregnancy is likely to happen within the first 6 months of a laproscopy especially if any thing was treated in the process and not just a diagnostic lap.

Goodluck to u.
Started a 1st month lupron shot today for a 3 months shot in preparation for my 4th IVF. This will be a freeze all cycle for me bc i had really bad OHSS and cant imagine going via that again. RE adviced for a freeze all which im more than ok with it. Anything preserve my health in this journey

I don't know about Nisa premier but I'm to start cycling with diff next week.So far I think they are very kind and empathetic. I hear they have very good success rates.They are quite expensive though I'm on the SALT programme which is a subsidized IVF programme.it is still on till 31st of december ie the window of hope programme. Scroll through 4 to 5 previous pages you will see the advert.
Nisa is a pioneer in IVF and also has good success rates.
