Egg Harvesting prior to chemoradiation

Hi all,

Hope everyone is doing well. I met my new consultant today post-PET results to go through my treatment plan. I'll be having chemoradiation with 25 radiation, 5 chemo and 3 brachy.

We're starting asap following my planning scan next week, but today I started a course of meds prior to egg harvesting. The consultant is going to give me chance to try one round of the egg harvesting, but has said if my eggs aren't ready in the two weeks, we'll have to crack on. 

Wondering if anyone has gone through the fertility stuff? I'm on a course of tablets to bring the cycle on, then 10days of injections before they collect. So we're on a race against time really!


Hello Hani, hope you are ok. I have previously been through 2 cycles of ivf (before I had any problems with cervix).  It can be draining both physically and emotionally. And it's not very pleasant when they remove the eggs, but it's all worth it in the end. I hope you get lots of eggs for you to use in the future. All the best with the rest of your treatment. 

hi I am due to potentially have a hysterectomy, I am desperate for my own child/family.. I wondered what the outcome has been for you as I am hoping to start fertility treatment soon
