What next?

Today is 10dpt5dt still nothing. Not even a hint of a line. I know I’m not pregnant.

I have emailed Dr B to let him know.

I don’t know what to do next. But I feel that it would be a mistake to go straight in to another transfer (my last frozen embryo). Clearly what I’ve been doing so far has not been working. And it is putting a strain on my emotions (the resignation!) and my body (those hormones).

I have been reading a lot about getting IVF overseas. Singapore has very strict guidelines around IVF and is not yet very supportive of single mothers by choice. It was not possible for me to bring my frozen embryos to Singapore, and there is no option to transfer using a sperm donor as an unmarried female. I have found a clinic in Johor Bahru (Malaysia) that will do a transfer with donor sperm for me, this is an option I may use.

I have a meeting in London in early January and the rest of the month is quiet, right up until Chinese New Year. I’ve spoken to my boss about taking some time off. Conversations like this are a lot easier after last week’s resignation! It is great now, we are finally having some frank discussions about what is working and what isn’t. He was happy for me to work remotely for January and early February.

I have found a clinic in Barcelona, Spain that can do an IVF cycle using donor sperm, a fresh transfer and then freeze any remaining embryos. The cost would work out similar to what I have been spending between Australia, Singapore and random appointments in Japan. I wonder if a few weeks in Barcelona on my own, focussing on the treatment without other distractions might help? And I LOVE Barcelona!

So far, the clinic have been very friendly. They all speak good English and seem to have a lot of overseas patients.

I have asked Dr B what he thinks, and if he can send me my medical records so I can get started. If this looks like an option, then I think I can get through the next 2 months.
