IVF after Treatment

Hey all,

I ended up having a hysterectomy after all my treatment but was able to keep my ovaries. We are about to embark on round 2 of IVF to see if we can get some eggs and I wondered if anyone else has done the same?

Be keen to chat if you have.

Thanks,

Hi Lorna, I had the ovary transposition surgery too but not to sure it worked on me. I've been having menopause symptoms immediately after my brachytherapy, hot flashes,dryness and more. Did u experience any symptoms after treatment and they faded away

Hey lovely. 

I had symptoms for a while but they faded away and my AMH levels have come back up. They aren't anything to wite home about but they are high enough to try the IVF. 

Hope all is well with you

Lorna , thanks for your reply. About how long did u experience symptoms for?my doctor isn't to sure if it's menopause with me wants to give it a couple more months to see. I had to have extended field radiation so my ovaries still might have gotten affected. I'm on month 4 post treatment and the night sweats just get worse.
