LPPKN – Fertility Treatment

I’ve mentioned somewhere in my blog that I conceived through IUI (Intrauterine Insemination). Yeap, after trying to have a baby through the natural way for 3 years, we decided it was time to get some help.

I’ll be re-writing back some posts from my old blog about fertility treatment at LPPKN. I hope this can be a good guide for couples who want to get help but don’t know what to do.

There are many ways to help you get pregnant. For example, massage by mak bidan to correct the location of your uterus (rahim), traditional herbs and roots, homeopathy medicines, fertilitily pills, IUI and lastly IVF.

I’ve tried the traditional massage, traditional herbs and roots, fertility pills and the last one, IUI.

So, what is LPPKN?

LPPKN stands for Lembaga Penduduk dan Pembangunan Keluarga Negara (National Population and Family Development Board). It is a government-run fertility centre located at Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur.

This is the place where childless couple can get help at a far cheaper cost than private hospitals.

Here are the procedures of getting fertility treatment at LPPKN.

  1. Call LPPKN at 603-2693 7555 and set an appointment for your first visit. I called LPPKN sometimes in December 2006 and got an appointment on 22nd February 2007! Such a long wait means a LOT of couples are having the same problem as us!!
  2. I heard some couple have to wait for 6-7 months for an appointment. So, be patience because obviously you’re not alone.
  3. During the first appointment, you’ll ask to register yourself. Then, your husband will be asked to produce some sperms for the Sperm Analysis. Cost is only RM25 for registration and RM10 for Sperm Analysis (SA). This process will take about half-a-day.
  4.  You’ll get the SA result within one hour. If the SA turns good (the sperms are healthy, no abnormality and good count), you’ll be set for another appointment for blood test. If SA is not OK, your husband will be ask to come again at a set date (three weeks later) for a repeat Sperm Analysis.
  5. If SA is ok, you’ll be ask to call for an appointment as soon as you have your period. You’ll need to go to LPPKN again for a blood test, any day from 1st day period to 5th day. This process will take only one hour and cost RM60.
  6. The nurse will give you an x-ray form and ask you to call Tawakal Hospital for an HSG appointment. I’ll talk about HSG later. The HSG need to be done on your 9th-10th day of period. The HSG cost RM180.
  7. Then, you’ll set another appointment with LPPKN for another blood test. This process will take only one hour and cost RM30. All the blood tests are done to monitor your hormone level in a month cycle.
  8. You will be asked to wait for your next period. The first day of your period, you must call LPPKN to set an appoinment with a doctor. Normally you’ll need to see the doctor on the 4th day of your period. You can request for a lady doctor if you wish. For appointment, please call them after 2.30pm.
  9. The doctor will explain what is your problem and ways to correct. If your tube is not block, the doctor will prescribed fertility drugs to you. You can choose whether to try for yourself first or direct do the IUI. Cost for doctor consultancy & drugs is only RM46.50.
  10. If you choose to do IUI, you will set another appoinment with your doctor on the 11th day of your period. This is to scan/ultra sound for checking the availability of your eggs! If there are more than 4 eggs available, the doctor will proceed with IUI on the 13th day of your period.

If you choose to do-it-yourself, the doctor will explain when is the best date & time to have sex.

Note: I tried two IUIs and suceeded in the second attempt.

    Thanks for your guide… It is very informative :)
    My husband and I are both looking forward to our first appointment at LPPKN on next Monday (19/1/2009). We have been married for more than 4 years, I only managed conceived once but had a miscarriage at 6 weeks. My heart sank when I read about the miscarriage you recently encountered. Though it’s been almost a year since my miscarriage and I have healed physically but emotionally it never healed. I guess it’s because I still longing to have a child of my own.
    Wish me luck.

    little mama
    hi mel,
    saya ada buat summary total cost yg saya bayar untuk 4 kali percubaan (2 kali mkn/injek ubat + 2 kali IUI).. IUI ni yg mahal sikit ubat injection nak bagi telur banyak tu (depend berapa kali dr suruh injek ubat – satu ubat untuk satu suntikan masa tu RM106 (so 4 kali injek ubat = 4×106 = 424).. kos buat IUI hanya RM100… jadi jumlah kos sekali treatment IUI + ubat.. around RM500 la..

    SUMMARY
    sperm analysis, blood test & Hsg 315.00 in Apr 07 (kos permulaan checkup)
    self-done + medications (clomid only) 138.10 in May 07 (tak berjaya)

    i’ve just started the treatment…waiting to see the doctor..

    do you take any other medicine other than the doctor advice?? such as alpha lipid..biodex or maharani pills?? will such medicine affect our treatment with the doctor??? just need your opinion….

    April 17, 2009 at 2:28 pm

    no..i strictly took only as prescribed by doctor (no biodex or any other medicine).. i advised u not to take anything else because the drinks/pill with fertility medicine might cause imbalance to your hormone..

    if want to try biodex etc.. do it months before IUI or if no success in IUI..

    don’t mix coz it could be dangerous to your health.. u can your doctor for opinion okey..

    Hi!
    I’m 38 and had gone thru 5 miscarriage in 10 years. the last was just las week. The foetus stop growing verytime at abt 6weeks. Hv not been thorougly investigated. Need some advice on the next course of action……help….

    Currently seeing Dr. Ummul in UMRA Clinic in Shah Alam. Thought of going to LPPKN, any suggestions?
    Time is running our for me.

    Thanks

    [REPLY]

    littlemama Reply:

    nur ivy, if foetus stop growing that means your pregnancy hormon is not enough to support the growth of the foetus.. this normally happens for women with imbalance hormone.

    i think you should go to LPKKN because the monitor your hormon before and after period.. my case was also due imbalance hormon.. so after IUI and got pregnant, doctor gave me some Duphaston to sustain the pregancy until I was like 4 months..

    8 months after giving birth to my baby, i got pregnant naturally but miscarried at 11 weeks which i believe because of my pregnancy hormon not enough to keep the baby (i didn’t take any Duphaston in 2nd pregnancy).

    just go and see Dr Hamizah or Dr Komathy at LPPKN.

    Hi little mama,

    I went to LPPKN and gone thru the SA, which resulted as fine.
    They gave me the DUPHASTON pill for 7 days for period.
    On period duration, they have requested me and my husband to go for blood test and HSG X ray at Tawakal. They have given the form. Now as I have completed the pill and waiting for period.

    Amanda Reply:

    Hello Ladies,

    Im back, My 1st IUI was not succesful as I had period just 1 day before my checkup with LPPKN.
    That was very sad…. Everything happens for a reason and also it depends on our individual hormone….
    Im not going to give up…
    Im planning for a second IUI..maybe next month… but before that I need to go and buy the period pills from LPPKN sumwhere this month.

    Weina,
    Total cost is about RM1k +++…. But you are going to pay a wholesum in a day…Every checkup u need to pay about RM100++, Medicine and injection are costly which could come up around RM 500++ depending on individuals…
    But the nurse will always advise on how much to bring along for every visit.
    You may start planning accordingly.
    Good luck to you!!!
    Don’t give up in any circumstances….

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    amanda, sorry to hear that but please don’t give up dear.. you’re right.. everything happens for a reason.. perhaps God want us to appreciate our child much more when it’s hard to get it.. compare with those people who easily got pregnant and throw away/murder their babies *i hate them so much!*

    Hi,
    I’m very excited to finally found an interesting detailed blog like yours about infertility and it’s treatment. I have been married for 3 years and trying to conceive. My hubby’s job require him to go outstation for 3 weeks every month and that leaves one week for us to be together. Chances of us being together at the right time every month is very less. He usually be around during my non-fertile period…But sometimes he will be away for 2 months straight.Now we are desperate to have a baby.Since Feb this year, we started seeing a specialist and found out that my hubby has low sperm count. so he started taking his medication for 2 months and then dr started giving me clomid. I was on clomid for 8 months now(actual is 6 month as I skipped 2 months without clomid and last 2 month the dr had increased my dose from 50mg to 100mg).And only last month did the dr do some tests on me like pap smear and transvaginal ultrasound. Each visit to the dr cost me more than rm200 and even TVS alone cost me about RM100!I think there are few tests that the dr has not done on me like HSG or checking for endometriosis. FYI, I have very regular period of 28 days cycle and blood test hormone seemed normal.
    This month my period was 3 days late (never happen before) and I was devastated when it finally came to show its ugly head today. I was hoping to get pregnant by this year. :sad:
    Anyway, my hubby and I was thinking to find another dr at cheaper cost. Currently my hubby is away outstation again for another 3 weeks. I recently quit my job just to be with him hoping that one of these months I will get lucky! BTW, I’m living in Sabah and I wish I can go to this LPPKN like you mentioned. I wonder if Sabah has one too?
    Now I’m thinking of finding a job again but then chances of being together with my hubby at the right time will be lesser (or diminished I guess..)…I wish he can find a job that requires him to stay. Well, we talked about it before but he really into his job now as the pay is overwhelming. But money can’t buy happiness!!
    Now i’m in dilemma whether to find a job now and wait for chances to come by(don’t know when…)or find a job later (until i have no more money left…)and keep on trying naturally and be with my hubby whenever possible. I missed my job…( I have a little regret for quitting but for BABY sake, someone has to sacrifice!)Now, I’m following my hubby outstation and even though I’m not ‘doing’ anything, but travelling from one place to another constantly really tiring.
    FYI again, before seeing doctor, I had traditional massage and had tried traditional product too (recommended by my mum in law).Any good plans from anyone?Frankly, I think I have lost patience now.We are also trying to adopt but the list is soooooooo looooooonnnggg…. :shock:
    Anyway,i felt relief after pouring it all out and hopefully one of these days I have good news.I’m just envy at all my friends now because they don’t have any problem at all conceiving. Now most of them are having baby number 2! well, it’s GOD plan I guess. Babydust to all who are still trying!!

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    hi cilla,

    i really do understand deeply how you feel.. sometimes we feel so depressed about this and need to pour out all our concerns and feelings to someone.

    it’s okay to be sad, angry, frustrated etc.. but please do not let all those negative feeling stop you from trying again and again.. let go the feeling and be positive as your emotional states could also affect your hormone… i know it’s hard not to think about it but please try.

    because of the nature of your husband’s job, i think you have made the best choice to quit working so can be with him at all time..forget about working for couple of months and focus on getting pregnant instead..

    here’s something you can do to increase your chances

    1. take Evening Primrose Oil capsules everyday
    2. take Folid Acid everyday (Folic Acid is requires to maintain a healthy baby but you need to have that in your body before your conceive)
    3. know when you’re fertile..easy to see from your cervical mucous (like egg whites during ovulation)
    4. take cough syrup containing Guaifenesin few days before you’re fertile (i know this sounds odd but Guaifenesin can help to thin cervical mucous so sperms can travel to your egg faster)

    anyway, Sabah also has LPPKN.. here is the address, perhaps you can try to call and ask about IUI treatment

    LPPKN NEGERI SABAH
    Pusat Pentadbiran LPPKN
    Business Suite Lot A-3-1 & A-3-2,

    Wow! Thank you very much Little Mama…you are very helpful.I never heard of taking syrup cough also help. But its worth trying anyway. Thanks for the info about LPPKN…I guess you really have done thorough research about this. I’ll contact them as soon as possible and see how it goes.
    I’m glad you felt the same way too about concentrating on getting pregnant. I have to choose between resuming my career or focusing on baby making. It’s already been 3 months since I quit my job and still not conceived.LPPKN is my only hope I guess…the doctor that I’m visiting now cost us about RM22,000 for IUI treatment alone…unbelievable…
    Anyway, I think it’s good to have a forum like this that is so informative. It makes me realize that I am not alone after all. I just can’t wait to go through the check ups again (errggh…)and hope to get over it soonest possible. Time will wait for no man (and woman), biological clock is ticking fast…I’ll just keep my mind positive and open (I hope my yoga meditation helps…)
    ;-) Did I tell you that I’m 33 y/o? Gosh…time is really short…I may not have high chance to conceive if I wait longer. Yes, I’ll keep that in mind – baby first! OMG, I’m driving myself nuts just keep thinking about it.Oh well,it’s never too late to try…thanks again for the comforting advice..I really need it…

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    cilla, RM22,000 for an IUI treatment? Gosh, that is so very expensive.. are u sure it’s for IUI? For that price you can get two times IVF (bayi tabung uji) treatment at government hospital or LPPKN.

    IUI at LPPKN only cost RM500+ per treatment. Read more about IUI

    http://littlemamadiary.com/category/little-guide/iui-little-guide/

    Usually fertiliy treatment follow this step. If not successful then go to the next step

    1. clomid + natural sex
    2. clomid + gonal-f + natural sex
    3. clomid + gonal-f + IUI
    4. clomid + gonal-f + other meds + IVF

    IUI only take the sperms out and washed it (filter) before put in your womb

    IVF takes both sperms and egg out and put in test tube. Then, plant the embryo in your womb (most expensive).

    Good luck ya Cilla!

    Oh yes Little Mama..22K just for IUI treatment only…
    I did call LPPKN but unfortunately it’s only available in peninsular. But fortunately, the local hospital here also provide IUI service but with doctor’s referral of coz.
    I went to see our doctor again yesterday and guess what…He stopped my clomiphene for next 2 months and have me go for HSG in the hospital in these 2 months. Well, I’m kinda nervous with all these investigation going on especially when they need to ‘poke’ something up in your ‘business’….reading too much stuff on the internet …the doctor actually ask me whether to go for HSG or laparascopy…i chosed HSG…hope everything will be fine…
    This afternoon I was watching ellen degeneres show and all her audience were pregnant mommies!!!Gosh…baby bumps everywhere!!!Y everyone else is pregnant but not me….hahah..paranoia…
    well, I’ll just wait n see what happen next…

    [REPLY]

    cilla Reply:

    Hi rainie,

    IUI treatment is also available in Likas Hospital but first, you need to do thorough checkups to rule out infertility. Get the doctor’s letter first. HSG is something like xray of your reproduction system to see if there is any blockages or other abnormality. IUI is where they inject the sperm straight into your eggs. Well, that’s the picture. FYI Little Mama, I have not gone thru HSG because of lack of manpower in the hospital (unbelievable..)I have started calling the hospital since dec last year but no doctor is available until March. Well, since I have started working on a new job, I don’t think I have that much time to do the test. I’m almost losing hope too but I just want to keep an open mind. May be one day miracle will happen.

    Don’t worry rainie. We are not alone after all. It’s God’s will and try to accept whatever is happening. Just don’t stop trying and praying.

    HI,
    I have just stumbled upon your blog today as i was doing some research on LPPKN. But at the moment their website is under maintenance so i checked out other websites. I found your website very informative. Thank you very much for sharing such detailed information, as it would make it easier for couples like me to find out about these things. It also set our expectations right. I know you have not gone for IVF as u got pregnant at IUI stage (Congrats!) but Would you have an idea of how much they would charge for IVF?

    sara, hi there! IVF at LPPKN or government hospital would be around RM10,000.. you may need to check with them to confirm as the exact price depends on your womb health

    Hi, glad that I found this blog. i felt like crying to know that I’m not alone in this world – depressed from the situation which is unable to conceived. I’m married, but after 1 month of marriage, I was diagnosed with endometriosis stage 4. I do not know anything about this as I never felt any pain. my depression begins. I feel very sad, useless. I really feel useless to my hubby. Currently I’m on an infertility treatment at HKL. Done my first IUI, but it failed. My endometriosis grows again. I simply cannot focus in my life now. feel very depressed. Hope I can go to LPPKN to speed up the process and help me to conceive faster.

    Its good to know that I’m not alone. Its close to 5 yrs and I’m approaching 30. My sis dah ada anak 6 mths (conceived lps kawin). I’m very very depressed. Just got into an argument with my mom – I tak tao tukar lampin .. MMGLAH!!! I aunty yg sekali sekala jaga anak sedara. If I hv my own anak .. Sure lah dah pandai!!! Urghh I’m sooooo stressed. I’m going for my second IUI process tmrw. 1 miscarriage 2 yrs ago – blighted ovum, 1 failed IUI last year at DSH. Costed me close to 3k as I had to use 3 syrnge of gonalF. This time try kat UH and I’m also doing BBT charting. Wish me luck on this IUI..

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    lynda, RM3k for IUI is very expensive.. i use 5 syringe of gonal-f but only pay RM500+… IUI procedure only RM100+.. at LPPKN.

    anyway, it’s good that you keep on trying.. i will pray for you… good luck and hope that this time around it is a success!

    hi littlemama
    just found your website this morning…when i google for TAFF. I have been married for 3 years plus.

    I have been on clomid before, failed and give up on clomid already.
    Starting earlier this year…berurut with mak bidan for a few times and currently on tradisional pill, sendayu tinggi.

    My husband sperm count is low, and planning to seek for another doctor advise.

    I am also going through the same experiences with the rest of the senasib readers..when i read all the comments here….cant help it…tears just flow freely..

    I just check the LPPKN kuching…given is the pejabat pentadbiran address…will try to check it out…

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    yolanda, have u tried IUI? it increase the chances of sperms getting to the egg.. i suggest you check with LPPKN or government hospital as these 2 are far cheaper than private… good luck!

    yolanda Reply:

    little mama,
    i will try IUI for my next cycle. i will go for private clinic. The doctor told me before she charge rm500 for IUI.
    Can you share your experience after the IUI procedure, i mean after the sperms are injected into the uterus, we go back straight or have to stay for a while? any restriction of activity??

    Salam LitleMama,

    I stumbled to ur page while browsing for IUI procedure..coz me n hubby is planning to do so during my next cycle..been married 3 yrs..but no rezeki..yet..FYI, ive been seing a pte gynae n we both have done the tests..sperm count, HSG, clomid..etc..things seems normal..even with clomid pun it didnt seem to work..byk gak ler abis duit coz its pte..consult pun around rm200..tu belum all the test costs..huhu..so, Im wondering if I can switch to LPPKN..bring my results..skip the tests n perhaps go straight for IUI..btw, do u know if pte hospital can release my file to lppkn?

    thanks in advance littlemama! :smile:

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    liana, yes.. you can switch to LPPKN.. just ask the doctor at private hospital for a copy of your record file and bring them to LPPKN.. LPPKN will want to see all your previous treatment records.

    since you already done all the preliminary checks, you can direct do IUI.. LPPKN only need to see all the record first.. let them know when you call for appointment and they will advise the necessary

    Ok done the last blood test. Now waiting for next period and then need to call LPPKN. I dont know which doctor to choose. i saw there were 3 doctors..? Will you able to advise? confuse too whether should go to IUI straight or self done with some medication.. puzzled!

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    hi weina, i advise u to choose a lady doctor (2 out of 3 are ladies).. either Dr Komathi (my doctor) or Dr Hamizah.. or if you don’t know just mention you want a female doctor and the nurse will assign any lady doc to u (just like i did).

    i think better u do IUI straight away becoz possibility to get baby higher than self done with clomid.. i advised from experience (i tried twice self done but no success, then later do IUI).. i waste some months trying there

    Little Mama,
    I’m just so glad that I’m not alone facing all this challenges in the effort of trying to get my own child. Little about me – After 1 year of marriage (2006), I was diagnosed with PCOS (2007) and there begin my journey of fighting infertility. May 2007, went for ovarian drilling operation which is believe to cure my PCOS syndrome, yup my period came quite consistent but still I was not pregnant. Dec 2008 – My first IUI treatment which cost me almost 3K, but it ended up with failure. Feb 2009 – I was confirmed pregnant by natural method with no drugs or wat so ever injection..but sadly I miscarriaged at close to 12 weeks..my lowest point of life ( I’m sure you know the feeling) in fact I will still cry when I think back all the pain that I’ve gone through..but I thank god at least I was given a chance to feel pregnant..Dec 2009-I’ve decided to go to LPPKN and in fact today when I call they have asked me to come this Monday for husband sperm check and maybe next appointment for my blood test ( exactly like what you mentioned in your writing).I know its a long wait but I’m ready for all this, I have so much hopes and dreams to be a mother that I’ll keep trying till all my dreams come true..God Willing. Sorry its a bit long but its kinda of nice to share with someone who understand : ) …thanks and do pray for me.

    Hello, Diya.

    Thanks for your sharing about PCOS.I am in my mid thirties now. After 3 years of marriage, only last week that i knew i have PCOS like u. The doctor suggested to have drilling too but after the confirmation of the problem with my blood test and husband’s sperm check next. we knew the PCOS after the ultrasound scanning at the private clinic. I will follow up with the process to get pregnant. I have tried clomid for a few months but it doesn’t work. Can i continue with clomid again cos i don’t feel like to have drilling? Where did u do the drilling?Which clinic and doctor? U seem to be successful in the drilling process. How was the experience of drilling? After reading website information about drilling, i am scared. i wonder if the LPPKN will accept me to IUI if i have all the previous record and results from private clinics? I am a government servant too. I went to family planning clinic a few times but the process is too slow. Maybe LPPKN or Likas Hospital is faster. Any suggestions of doctor or private clinics in Kota Kinabalu? Hows your PCOS? is it fully cure after the drilling operation? Any side effects or pain?
    Hope to hear from u soon. Thanks and Bye.

    [REPLY]

    Diya Reply:

    Hi Julie, sorry for such a late reply to you.

    A’way here’s my thought and experience.
    Ovarian Drilling ( OD) do help to a certain extend but its not a guarantee that we PCOS sufferer can fall pregnant easily. In my case after 7 months of trying naturally after the OD, all my attemps fail and finally went for my 1st IUI but still fail and only conceived naturally after 2 months post IUI.

    After the OD, my period cycle is between 30 -40 days, before the OD it was between 18 – 24 days. I guess its good becoz the cycle is more consistent and reasonable.

    I did mine at DAMANSARA FERTILITY CENTRE ( Ovarian Drilling and HSG x-tray) cost at around 7 K ( Insurance Cover). Its a 1 day procedure and you can go home the same day. I was given MC for 10 days to rest and have good food ( supaya luka cepat baik).
    Its actually depend on your doctor.

    Btw there a site http://www.soulcysters.net in the US that discuss about PCOS, its been a great help to read my PCOs sufferer issue.

    Julie, dun give up…I know its hard to deal with this PCOs and there is no remedy to it melainkan jg makan n kesihatan…

    I hope this info helps you ; )

    Remember I told u last mth that I was to proceed with IUI with my pte gynae? Well, alhamdulillah we did the procedure on 4th Dec..it was a Friday..hopefully leh amik berkat Friday kan? ;-) Eveything went well except maybe a bit of friction when my doc was inserting the speculum..(dont know what do I call that thing) hurt a bit but nothing to excrutiating…even my hubby’s sperms were abundant n most of them are Class 4..they all run on a straight line or sthg like that

    ;-) i’ve been having sore breast n back ache since then..maybe coz the doc prescribed me with Crinone..to be taken on daily basis k..huhu..i’ve got a blood test scheduled on 19th n my only problem rite now..im getting to anxious n worried that things r not gonna work out..i dont want to be stressed out coz i know its not good..but I cant help it….HEEELLLLPP!!

    wushuali,

    During my 1st IVF, 7 follicle were retrieved but only 1 fertilized. Eggs quality not good. I hav endo stage 4 with ovarian cyst on both sides.

    In my 2nd attempt, I took royal jelly and susu kambing, 14 follicle aspired and they managed to retrieve 8. And alhamdulillah 6 were fertilized.

    So in your next attempt, do try Royal Jelly & susu kambing. Royal jelly is said to help in producing good quality eggs. Take 1 month before you start treatment and stop after egg pickup.

    Good Luck and don’t give up, you are still young.

    1) Biodex
    2) Berurut
    3) That mini-buah-kelapa-lookalike-thinggy from Mekah

    before you tried LPPKN?

    Ramai yg syorkan guna benda2 tu semua, but satu pun I tak try. I dunno, I feel more comfortable knowing EXACTLY the reason why I am unable to conceive (yet).

    Oh, my sister-in-law have the same problem as I am, then dia pergi berurut. The lady told her, she couldn’t conceive because ‘ada banyk angin’ :roll: Ada ker medical term utk itu ye?

    One more thing, notice how lately Hollywood celebrities couple asyik beranak twin jer. ;-)

    Salam Little Mama and all,
    I’m 36 years old. Been married for 6 years. I have retroverted uterus which means my uterus is terbalik. Just wanna share my experience at LPPKN. My doctor is Dr Hamizah. Very pleasant lady. I went through all the procedures suggested by Dr Hamizah as u mentioned earlier. I went to berurut will all type of bidans (both male and female). I have done HSG at SJMC. Not painful, just a bit of stomach cramp when the radiologist inserted that thing. I have tried the following:

    1. clomid + natural sex
    2. clomid + gonal-f + natural sex
    3. clomid + gonal-f + IUI
    4. clomid + gonal-f (higher dosage) + IUI
    5. fertility injection (dont remember the name) + gonal-f (much higher dosage) + IUI

    I have tried IUI with 3 different treatments but failed. Every alternate days I have to inject my tummy with gonal-f and other injections. It’s stressful but I just did it because I want the baby badly. Just dont care. I spent more than 12K for the above treatments. Hubby paid of course. Never give up.

    The only treatment I haven’t tried is IVF. And I’ll do what it takes to get a baby. I’m waiting for my next menstrual and will call LPPKN for an appointment again. This time I will try IVF.

    Pray for me.

    jula, you’re exactly like me.. i mean 36, 6 years marriage and RETROVERTED uterus! i also got endometriosis as well. actually the gynae just discovered that i had retroverted uterus after i got severe stomach cramp end of last year.. he said it doesn’t affect the chances of getting baby though.

    ya.. i know how it feel.. it was stressful and painful to go through all the injections on our tummy.

    yes, please don’t give up.. go for the IVF.. i’ll pray for you

    Hello all,

    I’m aira. I’ve been a silent reader for quite sometimes. I have the same problem like most of our frens are having here. Been married for 2+ yrs. Done IUI twice, private hptl. Both failed. Cost far more expensive as compared to LPPKN. Now nk try LPPKN plak. But nk tanya skit, on our first appointment at LPPKN tu, x blh ke buat sperm test, blood test, HSG all in one day? For sperm test tu i guess blh skip coz dh ade previous test result kn? Bkn ape, my annual leave makin skit ever since i concentrate on TTC nih..
    Nway, ade x club or ape2 perjumpaan utk mummy wanna be yg tgh TTC? Rasa lega bila dpt luahkan prsn sbnrnya, especially dgn org2 yg senasib. Org lain will never undrstnd our difficulties.. evn tho diorang ckp diorng faham.. no, they will never get it.. :cry:

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    aira, if you pernah buat IUI, I’m sure u have the record already for sperm test and HSG *HSG patut dah buat before IUI done*.. so u can get a copy of the records (your treatment kat private) and bawak that to LPPKN..

    that way u can skip sperm test and HSG already.. cuma blood test je to check hormon.

    anyway, call LPPKN first to confirm + do first appointment.

    Darina, yup at least I pernah rasa pregnant tu macam mana..tp rasa jugak peritnya tu when it lost. Yelah when all ur hopes and dream tetiba berkecai macam tu saja. I berdoa sgt, if I ever become pregnant again, jauhkanlah dugaan itu lagi..
    OD tu I rasa u jgn buat lagi, tgk advise doc kat LPPKN tu macam mana kan..as i told before OD is not a cure for PCOS problem.

    Aira, I pun agree if ader club like what u suggest..mmg betul, org ckp fhm sebab nak calm us down, but we need more that dat kan..especially when we are all alone at home, no other thots than thinking about when will our time come and honestly saying it hurts so much :(

    Hi Littlemama,

    Glad to read your blog. It is very informative.

    I have a form from TAFF but I can’t full fill the criteria for join salary. It makes me struggle for a year to hold the form until today.

    After reading your blog, LPPKN is another ‘sunshine’ to me.

    Would to know :
    1) What are the criterias to register LPPKN?
    2) Besides IUI, is ICSI available in LPPKN?
    3) Is LPPKN similar to TAFF which is only assist those infertility family?

    Thank you in advanced for your reply.

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    Pipi,

    1. If you can’t pregnant the normal way then you can try LPPKN.. no other criteria given

    2. Please call LPPKN 603-2693 7555 to ask them direct

    3. LPPKN not same as TAFF.. TAFF is a foundation to help sponsor cost of doing IVF at private hospital. LPPKN is government organisation that carry fertility treatments(you need to pay your own but it’s cheaper than private).

    Hi Littlemama,

    I have been reading from your blog quite sometime. Been married two years and TTC. I have tried herbs and has been to private gynae for investigation but no luck. Though my gynae quite confident I am able to conceive. Slight possibility that my lining is not thck enough. From your guideline, I have gone to LPPKN on the 12th and since sperm count is ok I have done blood test the same day. I went for HSG last Saturday. Planning to proceed IUI during next cycle..wish me all the best..thanks for your info :smile:

    Hi, I have met the dr at LPPKN and our results seems within range. I am now on clomid and menopur. The scan will be next week and the IUI is 2 days later if all’s well. Is it much painful/discomfort than HsG? Wish me luck!!!
    Yes, we should all not give up, only we can understand what we are going through. Take Care all.

    Dear Little Mama…

    ive been a silent reader for some time of your blog….and i feel really grateful that you have given so much of information for all the hopefuls out there including me. I have registered with LPPKN also. Been married for 1.5 years and found that i have PCOS and my hubby has low sperm count so its a double blow for us.

    I am now waiting to do my HSG and see Dr.Komathy. Hopefully she will be able to advise us the best possible treatment we can undergo. I often feel very sad and depressed that I am unable to conceive. But after reading your blog i find some comfort that there are support systems out there for people like me.

    thank you very much

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    hi veena, don’t worry much okey *i know it’s hard but i must say it because worry and stress could affect the hormon*

    do your HSG first and I hope both tube are cleared of any blockage.. and get advise from the doctor.. for the time being.. prepare as many questions that you have in mind to ask the doctor

    if my first attempt of IUI failed,i’d like to consider LPPKN pulak.kat HUKM i’ve to pay RM550 for IUI procedure and almost RM1500 for medications.mahal la jugak for me.just want to share my experience and anxiety,i’ve to wait at least 2-3 weeks to know whether my IUI berjaya atau tidak..

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    mira, LPPKN tu memang ikut procedur.. first thing part husband (sperms count) kena OKAY.. baru boleh proceed part wife pulak.. kalau wife got no problem tapi husband low count.. memang akan kurang berhasil buat IUI kat mana-mana pun.

    point sini ialah kena SABAR.. yes you can stop LPPKN dan pegi private hospital.. tapi i think doctor private pun still akan usaha pulihkan sperms count husband dulu.

    my advise, sabar ye..i know memang seksa nak sabar..tapi ada hikmahnya..

    in mean time, cuba cari ways to increase sperms counts (in addtion to makan ubat yg doctor bagi).. stop smoking (kalau smoking lah), food wise kena betul.. husband kena makan banyak protein/omega3.. ambik tablet fish oil ke.

    at same time, cuba natural way.. make love very early morning sebab sperms count biasanya paling tinggi waktu pagi ;)

    hope this helps.. good luck!

    Dear Littlemama,

    Just an update on my status. Doctor subscribed clomid + hormone injections in February before IUI to ensure the egg are more than 3 and also to monitor their sizes. Unfortunately, on 11th day doctor did ultrasound and found out that the egg sizes are very small.. well..could not able to proceed with IUI. Frustrated!

    After period, went back again in March and doctor subscribed clomid + double dosage of hormone injections. Again went back on 11th day, found that the egg is bigger than my previous month but still not enough big to do IUI… and so doctor added another 2 more injections and will do ultrasound again tomorrow. If everything goes well, IUI will be on this wednesday…

    As you said it is not easy to go through all the above… but still will keep on forward myself till I get the success…

    Do you have any idea to increase eggs fertility… Thanks mama!

    Hi Littlemama,

    I read your blog somewhere in nov 09 & decided to find a fetility treatment after 6 years of trying. Instead of LPPKN, I decided to other fertility center. The treatment is almost the same as yours. After trying clomid for 3 cycles but fail, our doctor advice us to try IUI and we agreed. But the only problem is I need to apply for 14 days leaves just to stay on bed for the idle result. Were yours the same too?

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    jane, oh..I didn’t have to take leave after the IUI.. i only got one day MC ;)

    are u sure it’s IUI not IVF (test tube baby)? i know some friends who did IVF need to have bed rest but never heard for IUI.

    anyway, all the best to you

    helo little mama/gurls:

    a newbie here. found this blog while i was searching for some IVF infos: Just a little b/ground on me:

    DH:32, ME:30 – married since June 2005
    TTC : 18 mths
    Diagnosed: mild PCOS
    2 failed HSG; did Lap & Dye – tubes are OK/not blocked
    Treatments:
    (1) Clomid + Follitism – IUI, got a BFP but miscarried at 7 weeks
    (2) Clomid + Follitism – small follicles, natural, got a BFN
    (3) Clomid + Gonal-F – small follicles, natural, got a BFN
    (4) Clomid + Menopur – small follicles, natural, got a BFN
    (5) Clomid – 1 follicle, IUI got BFN
    (6) Clomid (higher dosage) – 1 follicle, IUI got BFN
    (7) Tamoxifen + Dexalone + Pubergen – 3 follies (good sizes), IUI – got a BFN
    (8) Clomid + Saw Palmetto + metformin – having a TVS on 8 April,2010

    So, thats a summary of my fertility treatment so far…am a patient at LPPKN since 2008,but also went to private practice… still no rezeki yet to conceive and prego till end of term.

    Currently, me and DH are planning to proceed with IVF as we’ve failed most of the treatments. Have to admit,its been a long and rough journey for both of us, but we are content to have each other’s support in this trying times. Kita mesti sentiasa yakin pada Allah, rezeki kita pasti akan sampai suatu hari nanti.

    Glad found this blog, where all of us experiencing infertility issues can support each other.

After the operation doctor told me that it impossible for me to get pregnent naturally. IVF the only option for me to get pregnent. As a newly wed couple it quite sad to hear that.

    Salam little mama,

    i stumbled on this site as i search for the lppkn at jalan raja laut. Thank you !! your site is very very informative. i’m having the same prob. Infertility i guess.. never been to any doctor for check up, but i just called lppkn yesterday.

    So, when my hubby came back home, i discuss with him. Sadly, my hubby say not yet, he said to wait for me finishing my master degree. I really hope to know if there’s anything wrong as my period is irregular. I’ve been charting my bbt for a month. my bbt is only 35.9 to 36.3 for a month (in Celsius).

    I do some research on bbt, they said that after ovulate, body temperature should increase (due to progesterone hormone). Progesterone is important for conceiving. As mine is not, so i know there’s a problem. But i am so sad, as my hubby didn’t understand this. I know that i cant really writing up my thesis because i’m emotionally distracted.

    i just need support from him.. thats all. Too many things to do i guess, i’m stuck.. wish me luck in putting things back together. trying to finish. May Allah always bless me in finishing my thesis and baby making. Feel down.. and need to see my supervisor.. double down.

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    zuera, i understand your feeling right now.. it’s hard if we don’t have someone to support.. especially the other half

    if your period is not regular, most probably your hormon is not balance which affect the mense cycle.. this could be due also to other problem such as PCOS etc.

    but you wouldn’t know for sure unless you see a gynae to check

    maybe you can talk with your husband about seeing a gynae for check up only.. perhaps your husband worry that you might not be able to handle both the master degree and being pregnant at the same time *it’s gona be hard u see* .. so he want to delay any fertiliy treatment

    but you can tell him that seeing a gynae doesn’t mean you will do fertility treatment to get a baby.. it’s just to make sure your body is fine and any problems can be treated early

    good luck and God bless you

    Salam little mama and all,
    I’m back. Been away for a while. Just to update all of you that I have started IVF treatment at LPPKN after failing 3 IUIS. IVF cycle is 2 months. Below is the summary of the procedure. Day is referring to day of your period :

    1) Any days between day 1 to 3 – Call LPPKN for appointment
    2) Any days between day 2 to 5 (based on appointment)
    a) See the doc. Doc will explain the procedure. It’s advisable to bring the husband along so that both of you can understand the procedure. You have to be mentally, physically and financially prepared.
    b) Then do a vaginal check. Quite painful. Doc inserted something to measure the length from vagina to endometrium (dinding rahim). This will give an estimation of how long the embryo transfer will be.
    c) Blood sample is taken from husband for HIV test. Husband will need to set an appointment for Sperm Survival Test(SST) at his convenient time.
    d) Doc gives Buserelin to be injected for 14 consecutive days starting from day 21 period. Our hormone is stimulated by our brain. Buserelin will stop the brain from stimulating the ovary. It costs me RM484
    3) Any day – Husband does SST. Cost RM200. HIV test cost RM80
    4) Day 21 – Start Buserelin injection
    5) After 14 days of injection on tummy, will need to do blood test to check the hormone and aslo HIV test
    6) Day 8 of second period – If everything’s ok, doc will give Puregon to force ovary to produce good quality eggs. Another 14 days of Puregon injection. Puregon is quite expensive. Can cost a few thousands depending on the dosage. Need to do frequent ultrasound to check the eggs during this 14 days. Once the eggs are matured, doc will give another injection utk pecahkan the folicles. Normally 36 hours before ovum pickup.
    7) Day 21 – Ovum pickup & sperm retrieval. A small needle will be inserted to pickup your eggs with ultrasound guide thru vagina. Masa ni you kena GA (general anesthetic) so you totally pengsan. Husband kena bagi sperm.
    8) IVF procedure – doc akan senyawakan your eggs with the sperm dalam lab sampai terbentuk embryo.
    9) Day 24 – Embryo transfer thru vagina. Lebih kurang procedure IUI. My embryo transfer will be done on May 1st. It’s a public holiday but the doc will come and do the procedure. According to Dr Hamizah, she can’t take leave during the IVF cycle. Bagus kan. Who knows LPPKN is so committed.
    10) Two weeks after that kalau tak period, buat another blood test to check the pregnancy. Blood test will give faster and accurate result.

    Estimated cost is 10K to 15K. Those with high cost are the Puregon, ovum pickup, IVF procedure utk senyawakan telur and embryo transfer.

    I have created an excel spreadsheet for the above activities according to calendar date and my period cycle. If any of you is interested to get a copy of the spreadsheet, please email me at julajuli73@yahoo.com. You’ll have a better idea. It’s FOC because I just wanna share my experience and it feels good if I can help others at the same time.

    Well, too much information I guess. I will update all you after May 1st. Wish me luck. Muah muah.

    Dear Littlemama,

    My brother’s wife has just given birth last night and my husband and I are so happy for them. However, we were thinking too much that both of us did not have a good sleep last night, I got up at 5am and like previous nights surfing the net hoping to find an answer and option that we could afford.

    I have a 7 years old son from my previous marriage. My current husband and I got married about 4 years ago and have been trying since then, we had 2 miscarriages. It was devastating and painful to see both of us crying when doctor confirmed that the feotus was not successful at week 5. That was about 2 years ago.

    We read about infertility treatments online and couldn’t believe the costs, very expensive! I agree with you, I “hate” people who simply threw baby into the bin, drain…etc. We always feel sad and angry when reading such news articles, and wish that they could just leave the baby safely in front of our door step.

    Thanks very much for the LPPKN info, I did not know much about government fertility service until I read your diary. I’m planning to tell my husband about this when he is awake, and will defenitely call LPPKN to make an appointment.

    I read about the STAFF treatment as well before I read your diary, unfortunately we do not qualify for TAFF, as they require both the couple should be Malaysians. I am, but my husband is not. I hope LPPKN do not have such criteria.

    Please wish us luck!

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    sue, operation for retroverted uterus? did your gynae suggest that?

    [REPLY]

    sue Reply:

    my doc didnt say anything about operation.. he suggested on IVF because the chances is still ok (30-40%) because of everything is ok and im still below 30 of age. hmm… i dont know.. :( :cry:

    [REPLY]

    Julajuli73 Reply:

    Dear Sue,
    Yes, retroverted uterus is not the cause of not getting pregnant. There are many women with retroverted uterus who are able to get pregnant. If you go to Hamid Arshat, he will immediately ask you to do the operation if you have RU. If you are below 30, i’ll say give it a try. I have a friend who has RU and did the operation. 3 months after that, she was pregnant. And pregnant again after 2 years.

    Another friend who went for the same operation but nothing happened. So it’s 50-50 chances. For women above 35, just go for IVF straight away. Don’t waste time.

    about the gynea.. i’ve talked to my hubby. he really ask me to wait. so guess waiting is the best now. i know he has something going on in his mind.. work, extra work.. home and so on.. so i try my best to support him..maybe true what u said… both master and baby treatment maybe hard on me..Allah knows the best for His servant.

    i read that you are going TTC again !!.. may Allah bless you wish beautiful baby and soleh. Watch out, maybe you’ll get twins..!! (actually i’m the one longing for twins )..

    hope to hear good news. pray the best for me..

    take care.

    Salam all,
    A little updates from me on my IVF treatment. I went for blood test on April 15th, it was sent to the lab immediately and I got the result 30 minutes after that. The estrogen hormone is 5 which is normal. Dr Hamizah gave me another 2 types of injection (Folliova and Menonys).

    MENONYS Inj. has the equal activity of FSH & LH. It helps in the maturation as well as rupturing of follicle, hence it helps for Ovulation

    Folliova Inj triggers egg maturation in follicle

    I have to continue with Buserelin injection and also Folliova and Menonys at the same time. So starting April 15th, I am taking 3 injections every night until April 22nd. Folliova and Menonys sometimes cause stomach cramp. My emotion is not stable. I can easily get angry and sad. Lucky to have hubby who understands that.

    April 23rd, will do another blood test to check my LH hormone and ultrasound to check the eggs. If LH and progesteron hormone is ok, and there are eggs then I can proceed with oocyte (eggs) retrieval.

    Will update again after April 23rd. Bye all. Muah muah.

    Salaam Little Mama, JulaJuli73 and all,

    I’ve been following this site for months. Thank u so much for all the info, it’s been very useful indeed. In fact, based on your input, I’ve contacted LPPKN on 21 Sept 09 and got an appointment on 24 Sept, just 3 days after the call! I went for the appointment and lucky me, it was my 2nd day period and I did my blood test that day itself. Then went for HSG and all. I was normal, alhamdulillah..

    However, my hubby was not that lucky. He did his SA. He has severe problem with his very low sperm count, its mortility and all… it was very sad indeed. He was taken aback and very upset.

    Dr Hamizah advised us to go for IVF, considering the condition of my husband and the age factor (we’re already late 30s). She referred us to a urologist to look at my husband.

    We went to see urologist in Jan 10. My husband was prescribed with clomid. I thought clomid was meant for ladies, but it does wonders to men, too. After 3 months of prescription, we went to do another SA last week.

    Alhamdulillah, the result was encouraging. The percentage has gone up a bit. Although just a bit, but it makes a whole lot different. We could now proceed with IVF.

    I’m now waiting for my 1st day period to call in for an appointment with Dr Hamizah.

    JulaJuli, your detailed explanation on IVF procedure has indeed taken a lot of pressure and anticipation on my part. I feel more relax and ready now to face it. Thank you so much for that..

    I wish you all the best in your IVF treatment… and so are for all of us in here.

    Little Mama, it is very noble of you to do this forum. It provides a support group, which is much needed to us who are facing dilemma in having zuriat of our own.

    Dear all,
    Good to know that you find the IVF information is useful. I received many emails asking for the spreadsheet which I am happy to forward it. Believe me, you are not alone. What important is we don’t give up.

    Another updates on my IVF treatment. I had 2nd blood test on Apr 23rd and ultrasound. The hormone is satisfactory but the response is slow. I only have 3 small eggs on my left ovary. No response from my right ovary. So Dr Hamizah increased the folliova dosage to 225 iu from 150 iu while maintaining Menonys 150 iu and Buserelin 0.3 cc.

    This morning I had another ultrasound. There are 4 big eggs and 2 small eggs. But not big enough for oocyte retrieval. So she asked me to continue with the same injections for another 2 days. My next appointment is on Apr 30th for ultrasound and blood test. I’m a slow responder according to her.

    Ladies, please take note that the treatment is based on our response. My treatment is not necessarily the same as yours ok. Cost also varies based on the medication. I dont want the reader to get confused. I’m sharing the info so that you get an idea of how IVF is done.

    Last but not least, just to motivate all of you with a successful story. I introduced my sister in-law to Dr Hamizah last 2 years. She’s 29 and has been married for 4 years. She did her 3rd IUI last 2 weeks. She did her pregnancy test this morning at LPPPKN and her result is positive. She is 5 weeks pregnant. Just imagine how happy she is. We were hugging each others with tears. I’m so happy for her. Just hope and pray my time will come.

    That’s all for today my beloved friends. Muah muah.

    Salam Little Mama and friends,
    I know everybody wants to hear my good news as a motivation. Here is an update. But before that, would like to correct my previous typo error. My sister in law did IUI not last 2 weeks from the date I wrote. It was in early April. How come she’s 5 weeks pregnant if her IUI was 2 weeks ago. Hehehe. Getting old.

    Ok. Back to my IVF. My ultrasound on April 30th shows 6 eggs. 3 are good based on the size. Uterus lining is also good. So my oocyte retrieval was scheduled on May 3rd. As early as 7.30 in the morning, we were at LPPKN. To ensure the smoothness, we overnight at Quality Hotel.

    My surgery was at 9.30am. After the surgery, Dr Hamizah came to me with sad news. Retrieved 6 eggs but none is good for fertilisation. So couldn’t proceed further. Only Allah knows my feeling at that time. Tried to be strong but couldn’t stop the tears.

    Anyway, I have accepted it. I believe there is a hikmah. As a Muslim, I know Allah knows what’s best for me so I redha. I’m taking a little break and will try again.

    For those who are trying, just go for it. Dont giveup and dont be afraid of negative result. If I dont do IVF, I wouldn’t know the actual problem. Now I know the problem is the quality of the eggs.

    Ita,
    There is no need to take leave during the treatment. If your work is hectic, you may want to consider taking leave after the procedure.

    Good luck and wish all of you the best. Muah Muah.

    I’ve just met Dr Hamizah this morning. After a long discussion on IVF and ICSI, and after taking into consideration the our health conditions, we’ve finally decided to proceed with the procedure in June (my next menstrual cycle). So, insya’allah, once we’ve started the procedure nanti, I’ll keep you guys updated in here.

    Till then, take care, and all the best!

    Hi litte mama,

    First and foremost thanks for giving a lot information about infertility. This is the most informative blog tat I saw.

    I had done HSG and was diagnosed Bilateral Hydrosalpinx. It means “kedua-dua tubes pun kena sumbat”. Now I feel crying and helpness. I am so sorry to my hubby. All my dreams are destroyed.

    I wonder whether I should go for further treatment on infertility issue or just quit? If further IVF, also cannot help me watelse can I do.

    Julajuli73 Reply:

    Amy,
    If both of your tubes are blocked, you have to do IVF. You can’t do IUI. Have u tried IVF? Before that, you can try get an advice from Hamid Arshat. He can flush your tubes or do tubal surgery. Please dont quit.

    I found that many relevant research regarding to this disease, even IVF also useless, because the “fluid” will kill the embryo and also increase abortion. Some of my friends told me that in my case would like to do ivf = wasting money…..

    By the way can I know where Dr. Hamid Arshat located?

    One question here..HSG x-ray is x-ray rahim ke? :?: coz my rahim x-ray appointment with Ampang Hospital is on 28 july so i need some clarification from you..
    i’ve done blood test at Poliklinik Tangling and my blood test shows i’m lacking of progesterone.. :cry: meaning no ‘telur’ was produced..now they’r referring me to Hospital Ampang..(Alhamdulillah my gynie doctor is a women and she’s very good in motivating me n husband)

    ##FYI..This way can saved me RM30 (coz i’m not gov servant) if you guys was referred by private klinik, Rm30 will be charge during registration and for a next treatment they’ll charge RM5/treatment (even with or without poliklinik letter) ;-)

    Salam little mama,

    Been reading the previous posts & yes, I have to agree that your blog really helps in giving info about infertility issue that we’re dealing with & how LPPKN can help.

    I’m 27 & been married for 19 months. I know, compared to our dear friends above, I’m less younger in age & in marriage years. But I guess I’m being a bit paranoid of not being able to be preggers. Yup, we did plan to have some time for ourselves during early of our marriage (1 year, to be exact). But then, we’ve decided to give it a go. Well, it turned out it was not as easy as we thought it’s gonna be.

    We tried, & tried & lastly we’ve decided to check what’s wrong. On May 2010, I gave a call to LPPKN to arrange for an appointment. To my surprise, I got an appointment & I got to choose the date! But of course the nurse advised that hubby reserved his sperm for 3-5 days for sperm test.

    After going through all the tests & whatnots (yup, i think HSG hurts!) I got my first appointment with Dr. Komathy last Friday. Her diagnose : I was having hormonal imbalance which caused my eggs to “tak matang”. Sperm counts, OK. Uterus & fallopian tube all OK.

    Dr. Komathy explained to us all of our options & we chose to DIY first. So I’m on Clomid right now. Next Monday, I’ll be meeting Dr. again to “teropong” my eggs so that she could tell when is the right time to have intercourse.

    My concern right now is, I’m sooo paranoid! I couldnt get the negative thoughts out of my head! Especially after reading to the previous posts from every walks of life.

    Hope this will go away as I need to prepare myself emotionally, meaning I have to feel more relaxed for the timed intercourse.

    It helps when knowing that I’m not alone, & would really appreciate if there anybody who has any tips on how to reduce the anxiety? Risau xtentu pasal je when it comes to baby-making.. HELP me, pls… :cry:

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    dear lily, your problem is same as mine.. hormonal imbalance.

    anxiety tu memang tak leh nak elak la kan especially kalau kita tengah berusaha.. all kind of bad thinking comes into the head..

    TAPII.. try not to think about that so much.. do something else untuk mengalihkan perhatian.. kalau rasa nak menangis ke meraung ke..JUST DO IT.. jangan tahan-tahan

    jangan lupa juga ingat Tuhan..kena berdoa banyak-banyak..dan bertawakkal

    kalau perlu take a day off for the time intercourse..so tak de la terfikir nak rush or anything

    Hai Littlemama,
    First of all, thank you so much for this wonderful blog. It is very informative and useful. So many advices, do’s & don’t. ANd it feels good that you are not alone. Well, I’m 36 & been married for 5 years now. I have done HSG & found out i have Bilateral Hydrosalpinx which means both my fallopian tubes are occluded. My husband has a low sperm count. The only way to get pregnant is via IVF & it costs roughly RM18-20k @ private hospital in Sabah. LPPKN in Sabah do not offer IVF.LPPKN sounds promising & for me to do IVF in KL gonna cost a lot coz it will incurred so many expenses.

    Just wondering, if i ever feel like doing it in KL, how many days should I take leave ya?

    Going to children area @ any shopping complex is an emotional moment for me….. :sad:

    Dear Little Mama and all,

    It’s been two months since I last posted in here. I’ve started the IVF treatment last month.
    Doc prescribed me with Buserelin (0.5 cc). Took it for 2 weeks from 28 June.

    Did the blood test and ultrasound on 12 July. Everything was normal. Then Doc gave me Menonys injection (300 iu). I still have to continue with Buserelin injection (0.3 cc). So, from 14 July onwards, I’m taking 3 injections every night.

    Btw, we tried to combine 300 iu of Menonys in one stringe (to make it about 80 cc), but it proved to be sooo painful! The solution was so thick that it hurt so bad when we administered the injection. I cried throughout the entire injection. We then had to resort to having 2 separate injections of Menonys and one injection of Buserelin.

    This morning, we did another ultrasound. The result was not so encouraging. I only have 3 eggs on the left and 1 on the right ovary. All the eggs are very small. Doc said my body is slow at responding to the medicine. Plus, I have minor allergy to Menonys, which irritates my skin and makes it itchy.

    I need to continue with the same injections (Buserelin and Menonys) for another 5 days. Next appointment to do ultrasound and blood test will be on 26 July.

    We’re praying hard that my body will respond fast to the medication and that the procedure will be a success. Then again, I’m also preparing myself to be strong with whatever result that we may get…

    Dear Ita,

    kos ubatan lain akan ikut peringkat..

    dulu masa akak kos prosedur IUI tu RM100 je (tak masuk ubat.. ubat mahal..ikut berapa dose..dulu RM100 satu dose..kena 4-6 dose per cycle).. tapi dengar khabar kos IUI tu dah naik RM300+ tak silap.. ubat maybe naik jugalah.

    HI

    1 cycle..is whole treatment..if you succeed..IUI only requires one cycle for one treatment..unlike IVF, 2 cycles per treatment.I heard private can charge up to 3,000 for IUI. Some can also offer below 2K.Hope this helps..

    Salam All,

    In Feb, I’ve mentioned that I’ve conceived after 4 IUIs attempts @ PPUM.

    Anyway, I just found that the fertility center that I went in PPUM is also a LPPKN, but in Selangor. So, now, you have an option to go at LPPKN Jalan Raja Laut or LPPKN at PPUM. I’ve not been to LPPKN Jln Raja Laut, but I would like to also share my experience @ PPUM. Mungkin ramai tak tahu kot, tapi everytime I go to PPUM, queue ada dlm 5-6 orang je utk jumpa doctor.

    The first few cycles when the IUI x jadi, the nurses and doctors there were very kind, dan mendoakan we continue and don’t give-up. Tu yang sanggup buat bercycle-cycle, because you can really feel that they care. Macam2 pesan yang diaorang bagi everytime jumpa. Maklumlah every month pergi sana (yang each month pergi selang dua-tiga hari utk monitor development telur), so dah kenal semua orang kat center tuh.

    Tapi, yang paling terharu, bila dapat tahu saya pregnant, they are the one yang paling excited. Usually I have to call to check the status of my HCg count, tapi hari tu diorang call. Macam2 advise diaorang bagi, just to make sure that the pregnancy is successful.

    Nak dijadikan cerita, dahlah diuji 5 thn utk mengandung, mengandung pun diuji lagi. Masuk 2nd trimester, I had bleeding yg potentially lead to miscarriage for nearly a month. Sepatutnya, I dah kena transfer kena Klinik Ibu Mengandung, tapi they are very concerned abt me, I continue to go to the LPPKN. The nurse and doctors sana prihatin, that I can just call them for advice and only go to the hospital based on over the phone diagnos (fyi, movement can further aggravate the situation).

    After the bleeding episode, I decided to resign from the hectic work and get a lighter workload. So, skrg ni I’m 7mths pregnant and continue going to PPUM utk check-ups. Bukan kerana nak jimat, tapi rasa sangat2 terjaga oleh doktor dan nurse yang prihatin.

    So, to all dear friends here –> Yes, please continue to try conceive and never lose hope, but, it is equally important that you find a good hospital to take care of your precious pregnancy.

    Insya Allah, I mengandung dengan selamatnya and dapat merasa zuriat sendiri..

    Salam & Hi to all,

    I’ve been married for almost 4 years. I was diagnosed with PCOS in my 2nd year of marriage.

    Drilling was done, my tubes are fine and hubby’s sperm count is superb.

    We’ve been trying to conceive since then.

    I’ve undergone IUI procedure for 4 times & intend to give it another try after this raya. if result remains the same, will definitely persuade hubby to go for IVF @ LPPKN..

    Btw, I’m 31 y.o this year…biological is rapidly ticking.. consider myself lucky that i didn’t have the pressure frm my family & the in-laws.. but deep down inside it is still not comforting knowing the fact that I’m over 30 & childless (there I say it).. there is also the thoughts that what if i’me never gonna get pregnant? to aggravate the matter further, my baby sister got married this year in Feb & almost immediately got pregnant. she’s now 7 months pregnant…i’m happy for her but sad for myself.. she even did her pregnancy test at my place cuz her hubby was outstation… it was an awkward moment for me.. reality can be really harsh.. but i to keep my sanity intact.. i always remind myself that there could be blessings in disguise..

    hope littlemama & everyone don;t mind me pouring my heart out in this forum..

    Interesting to know about you coz lebih kurang sama like me..well same age, hubby no problem, no pressure from families, and dah few times IUI..also planning to proceed IVF@LPPKN, now waiting for financial possibility..also feeling that the clock is ticking and that what if I will never get one..and sometimes like losing my mind..but then lately I feel like forgetting about time..just enjoy the moment but never stop trying…trying but not too much hoping cos it will easily be d reason for heartbreaking each time…you are so true that there must be blessing in disguise that we will be thanking in future..all the best,hope can share the IVF journey soon. ;-)

    yun & syahnaz,

    good to hear there are souls going through the same feelings….sometimes its just hard to pour out to our opposite gender specially to our husband, as they dont really see the problem as how we see them…and they easily convince themself to relax and forget about the problem and move on….but we the woman are haunted day and night and minutes and even seconds….but kita kena jugak sabar and kuatkan semangat. do not let any negative thoughts to haunt you. Be positve….do not give any rooms to say ‘i wont get pregnant’.if anyone ask me, got anything ahh ? ‘instead of saying ‘NO’….i will say ‘SOON TO COME’. at the begining it feels odd but it healed me later on. have some changes to take place in your daily life, swift your thought…i started reading novels, every 3 months once we travel to places like Sea side / water falls / island tour. Go out every weekend to parks/ movie/ visit friends / etc – to get ourself relaxed and kuatkan ikatan as husband and wife, get a pet maybe puppy or cat – some thing you could play with. ( like myself i have a puppy ) – she cheers our day, cam kami saling bergantung untuk kasih sayang… i started exercising did ofthen have changes on my look – to add spices and momentum when we make love ( without bothering about ovulation.) So we are all in the same boat, whatever religion we may be – but it all teaches one thing ‘TO NOT GIVE UP, TRUST GOD, AND HIS MERCY AND BLESSINGS WILL BE SHOWERED’. Good Luck to all.

    hi guys,

    this cmg Dec my marriage genaplah 3 tahun and masih belum dapat conceived naturally.. Masa mula2 kahwin dulu, dah ghi jumpa gynea kat SJMC…Dr Lee confirm that I’m having PCOS.. hormon mmg tak balance..my period pun setahun hanya sekali..itu pun kalau teruk sgt..klu tak datanglah setahun 2 kali…

    I took clomid utk a few cycles..mmg telur membesar dgn banyak tp masih gagal untuk conceived natural… so sekarang bila dah almost 3 tahun, me and MH nak jumpa skali lagi Dr Lee tu..tak tahulah apa cadangan yang akan dia kasi untuk kali ini…

    Confius juga, MH friend suggest suruh ghi jumpa Dr Zamri from DEMC, tp after raya ni appointment dgn dia fully booked…cuma ada during weekdays..which susah sikit nak apply cuti…anyway, tomorrow my appointment with Dr Lee..Hopefully, ada good news yang dia boleh kasi tahu lah..

    It is a time to check on MH side too..

    Little mama,
    I have been trying to conceive for the past 2 year since the day I got married. But failed. My menses after marriage has gone totally disaster. I have to take norculat every cycle to get my period out and to monitor for ovulation which doesn’t seems to be happening. I have referred to one of the medical centre or treatment.
    1.Clomid of 50mg + natural method = failed ( no matured follicle)
    2.Clomid of 100mg + Metformin + Dexalone +Natural method = failed ( one matured follicle but too big)
    3.Clomid of 150mg + Metformin + Dexalone +Natural method = failed ( no matured follicle)

    Pap smear result – all okay no cycts or fibroids. Ultrasounds –no blockage / everything normal. I’m diagnosed with more of male hormone thats the reason there isn’t any matured eggs to be ovulated ( though i have about 8-10 eggs each month). Doc referred me to 6 months of birth control pills (diane25) in order to reduce the male hormone and to balance it with the female hormone equally. My husband’s SA analysis revealed low sperm count there fore he is has been given vitamins to increase the sperm count.
    We did ask about IUI, but doc claim it’s no point spending so much money on IUI which is not a certain answer to get me pregnant. and requested us to go on the birth control pills first.
    But of course it’s about the cost right. So far I already spent more than 1.5K only on clomid and metformin. Now for the next 6 months I will have to bear a cost of approximately RM300 per month for the next 6 months and not giving me a chance at all to ovulate (because birth control pills stops production of eggs).
    Reading all the comments on this topic, I don’t seem to hear anyone talking about usage of contraceptive pills to cure infertility.
    Anyone wants to share…

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    hi jenny, seems like you doctor giving you birth control pills to treat PCOS (ovulation problems)..if you have problem with ovulation then the doctor is right to make it priority to treat that first

    IUI will only have a greater chance of success if you have a regular ovulation in place.. most of people doing IUI have another problem which is the size of eggs (ovulation happens but eggs do not mature big enough for fertilisation).. for this drugs like Pregnyl and Clomid are given

    [REPLY]

    jenny Reply:

    Thanks for the info little mama. Anyway i have not started on the birth control pills yet since i have not got my menses this months. Any way, we decided to go for a second opinion. Since no blood check was carried out by the previous doc – im not sure how she would have concluded on my hormonone imbalances. My hubee sis is also a doc and said it is ok to get second opinion. Looking at the cost of treatment at current place i dont think can i afford to continue treatment there. Im going for my 1st appointment to LPPKN tommorow. by the way how much does each IUI cost ?

    jenny Reply:

    my 1st appointment ( which was on my 30th birthday )…wow little mama….you are actualy my big mama, the staff’s were really really friendly and cheerful. i walked in nervous, not wanting to hear any futher bad new about my health but the staff’s really changed my mind set and got me relaxed. The nurse sat down and took our indivudual and family health information and was very informative in explaining to us…which was not done at ROOPI Medical Centre. They are just to busy to ask or even answer your question. at lppkn i have gone through my urine test to confirm i wasnt pregnant at that moment and hubee had his semen analysis done as well, i was given duphaston 10mg for 7 days to get my next pperiod and was advice to go tawakal for an x-ray on between 2-5day of my period….and i will have to go back to lppkn to do a blood test…the first trip cost us RM90 only.

    Dear Lil Mama
    I have been through IVF 7 years ago and not successful. I didnt had any hesterogram done as it is not required for IVF and my husband’s SA is normal. After the unsuccessful of 1st IVF, i did not try again as it is very costly. So i decided to let nature takes place but over the 7 years, it is still unsuccessful. I have never taken any OCP or traditional herbs before. Every month i calculate my most fertile period and have SI but it’s still unsuccessful. I am 38yrs old now and i wonder if i still can get pregnant. My period is always on time and it will last for 5 days. Could it due to my imbalance of hormone or blockage of my tubes? Please help.

    terima kasih atas maklumat berguna dalam blog ni, ia sgt memudahkan bila berkunjung ke LPPKN.

    bulan Oct lalu, saya dan suami telah melalui ujian2 saringan ie SA, blood test dan HSG.

    last week (Nov),saya mmg dah excited nak jumpa dr. for the first time bila saya period (period saya regular) tapi bila nak buat appointment, doktor takde, so kena tunggu next period, next month. saya ada beberapa persoalan:-

    1) kenapa bila nak jumpa doktor first time kena time period sahaja? is it to make sure tak pregnnt? tapi bukan ke boleh check thru pregnancy test?

    2) bila jumpa dr. first time, terus buat treatment ke? bukan dr. akan bagi advice, then kita jumpa lagi bila dah decide nak proceed dgn treatment ape ikut mengikut masalah masing2?

    3) jika kena jumpa dr. time period sahaja,kalau every month time period asyik2 dr. xde ie pegi kursus ke, meeting ke, dh tu sampai bila nak dpt jumpa?

    4) kalau akhirnya saya berjaya jumpa dr. selepas 3-4 bulan menunggu dr. ada time saya period, adakah saya terpaksa buat semula blood test etc? sampai bila ujian2 yg telah dilakukan itu valid?

    thanks in advance kepada littlemama dan sesiapa yang sudi berkongsi maklumat:)

    mar,

    1&2. kena jumpa doktor time period sebab dia akan bagi advise dan boleh start treatment on the spot

    ubat mcm clomic atau injection gonal-f tu mesti diambik dari start habis period kalau nak buat treatment IUI sebelum next period

    3. itu patut tanya nurse :) maybe kebetulan masa you call dr memang tak ada so memang takleh buat apa lah.. tapi takkan lah doktor tu sepanjang masa pergi kursus.. please think positive ya

    lagipun masa you call time period tu belum set which doctor lagi kan..kebetulan la tu semua doktor tak de time tu.. ada 3 doktor kat situ.. boleh request doktor wanita kalau nak masa call tu

    4. blood test check hormone tu sekali saja..validity dia biasa 1 year la..

    nak buat treatment ni kena sabar..dan kena fikir positive

    mar,

    Jumpa DR masa period sebab for fertility treatment, bermula dari awal cycle ie Day 1 period..sebab DR monitor hormon and ubat-ubat ikut peredaran hari dalam cycle. Maybe jugak to avoid treatment time pregnant sbb ubat yang diambil mungkin tak sesuai..so better confirm dah dapat period.

    Masa first jumpa memang bincang result test, and DR explain expected solution and whether kita nak proceed ke tak..kalau tak proceed masa tu pun (DR bekalkan ubat hormon), next period datang lagi to start..dah lupa masa I pergi that day whether I start immediately..

    Hmm maybe sekarang time DR busy..cos ms I dulu most of the time ada..cuma sekali je xde..then take a break that month,tunggu period lagi sekali..Dont give up k..

    Rasanya tak perlu ulang balik semua ujian..especially kalau within setahun tu rasanya masih valid..saya buat treatment dalam 5-6 bulan tak pernah ulang ujian..result awal tu kira dh boleh intro kita punye basic condition..

    Harap dapat membantu..

    Dear littlemama and syahnaz thank you so much for your informative reply!really appreciated it:) this blog provides a good support group!btw i was assigned with dr hamizah:)

    initially, i was frustrated bcoz when i took the blood test for the 2nd time (D21) the nurse informed me that i will see the doctor next month during my period.so mmg expectation dh high time tu to unveil the root of the prob and ways to rectify it or even if there’s no prob, cuma belum rezeki ;-)

    when we decided its time to seek help, we were not sure where to go, gov or private? then my mom asked her friends on this matter. the verdict was gov : long queue and it would be some time before you could see the doctor. while in private, cuma sediakan ongkosnya:) but later i stumbled upon this blog, and later called lppkn, it seems after one month, you can see the doctor. so we thought xdela lama sgt tunggu, so we decided to try lppkn first. besides,its semi-gov and some of the cost incurred can be claimed later from the gov:)

    anyways, if the nurse took the time to explain the reality of the situation ie your appointment depends on ur period AND doctor’s schedule, if shes not available you may need to wait for next month during ur next period. then i would be more than satisifed, at least dh bole expect tak semestinya jumpa dr. the next month:) i guess these things not all nurses know kot and are based on experience, thats why this blog is good for us to share our experience going thru the treatment:)

    i did called lppkn twice, but they didnt manage to answer my Q, kept repeating the same thing ‘puan dtg next period ye’ then giving me the pep talk ‘ benda ni kena sabar etc’ i truly understand that,bertahun2 ni pun bersabar la kan, i dont expect to get pregnant straight away,kalau ade rezeki, adelah kan,must keep on trying dan jgn putus asa.i just want the explaination, apa yg akan dibuat. why this why that. last2 nurse ckp ‘puan dtg sini, nnt kita bincang ye’ hehe tapi mmg salute la staff lppkn, sabar je melayan,walaupun tak jawab soalan

    now that littlemama n syahnaz has explained the procedure and shared their experience, baru senang hati:) thank you so much! may littlemama conceive again and syahnaz succeeded with IVF!:) and everyones wishes will come true! ;-)

    p/s i couldnt see the dr. last week bcoz she was away attending a meeting the whole week, hopefully next month she wouldnt be on leave or attending meeting/courses, if not we will have to wait again for the next month:) and enjoy life as it is, counting our blessings :?:

    salam all.

    I just found this blog and feel very honoured to share that my first son is by the third round of IUI performed by Dr. Hamizah.. then i got pregnant again after my little one is just 4 months! Unfortunately, the second one got miscarriage when it’s 6 weeks. I strongly believed that my body cannot sustain any pregnancy naturally like others. so, i start to eat well, take EPO and a lot of fruits and pray hard. exactly when my first one is 8 months, i got pregnant again (DIY)! this time i really have to take care of myself just like how the LPPKN staff did. I told my history to my doctor and he gave me special treatment in order to eliminate any posibilities of miscarriage again.. with Duphaston until 4 months, Alhamdulillah i manage to sustain my pregnancy and gave birth to a very healthy 3.85 boy. Since both of my babies are born via ceaserean, i need to wait for another 6 months to get pregnant again..

    to those who are still waiting for the good news, please, please and please do not lost hope! yes LPPKN is a gov center but believed me, they are fully equipped with the latest technology and you have to pay less compared to swasta punya. make use of your citizenship for this!

    Hi Lil Mama,

    I am 27 & DH 33 married for 15 months & been ttc for almost a year without success. My periods are regular and according to OPK(Ovulation Predictor Kit) i do ovulate. I have done HSG at gov hospital for FOC(my sis is a DR there)on june 2010 & the tubes were clear. My last period was on 26/10/10 & i ovulate around 11-13 Nov. My sis recommended me to take clomid to increase my changes to conceive. I took 50mg on 5-9 on my last cycle. If this month fails then i probably will get an appointment at LPPKN coz it is so frustrating when TTC. 3 of my cousins who got married the same time just delivered their first child & i am the youngest among all. All of them in their 30′s. Right after my ovulation i felt abit crampy. My symptoms are as below:

    Period : 26/10/10
    Ovulation : 11-13/11/10
    3-5 DPO(date post ovulation) : mild cramp, Increased Cervical Fluid, Bloating, Pulling/Pinching pain at abdomen, Ovary Pain, Headache
    6-9 DPO – same as above but no pinching/pulling pain or ovary pain…felt Increased Appetite, Tender Breasts, Bloated, Gassy (burping whole day)and also nausea
    today 10 DPO – feel abit crampy since morning, backache, nausea, some cervical fluid, emotional,very Tender Breasts, sore throat, flu (sneezing), fewerish abit…

    With feeling mild cramps, do you thing i still can get BFP?
    Anyone else have success stories going through IUI? Please share..

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    hi puvanes, i understand how you feel.. hope everything goes well with the clomid

    if not, do consider IUI to increase the chances

    Salam little mama,
    Rasa terharu dapat ruang berkongsi dengan yang lain tentang semua ini..saya pun nak masuk 4 tahun kawin,still have no baby..pernah miscarriage at my 2nd year of wedding,sampai sekarang..xde rezeki lagi. Rasa sedih,bila tahu ade cyst pulak after miscarriage tuh..cyst tu pulak kejap ada,kejap x de. i decide xnak operate.my husband pula sperm count low..

    Teruja ngan cadangan utk ke LPPKN ni.Doktor akan bagi cadangan ke utk kita? kalau cam kita nak go for IVF terus cane,bole ker?

    3bln lps kwin saya mula mencuba mcm2 cara untuk hamil,..mengurut, petua2, rawatan islam,mkn supplement, biodek dan mcm2 lg..pnghujung bln ke5 sy keguguran(5mggu).hingga skrg sy masih meneruskan pengambilan suplement dan mengamalkan tip2 mudah hamil..
    teruja pula bila baca ruangan ni..blh ke saya cuba dptkan rawatan di lppkn walaupun usia pkhwinan sy baru stahun?? bukan apa bila saya menyatakan hasrat untuk dptkan rawatan ramai yg ckp “ala..baru stahun kwen, org lain btahun2 kwen xde anak” saya bkn apa klau blh xnak la jd smpai mcm tu, btahun2 kwen masih xde anak..saya hanya brusaha untuk dptkan zuriat..

    saya menjalani proses IUI kali pertama pada 18/11 lepas…dan setelah 16 hari, hari ni saya period :cry: sedih sangat..nak keje pon terus hilang mood.

    saya dah 4 thn lebih berkahwin dan tak pernah mengandung.jumpa pakar semua test dr kata saya sihat, suami pon sihat.pernah juga cuba cara tradisional dan islamik, alhamdulillah…semuanya ok.tp nampaknya rezeki zuriat blm smpai pada saya dan suami.

    saya buat IUI di klinik swasta recommendation dari pakar yg saya jumpa. kos boleh tahan jugak…dalam 17++.so dah gagal kali pertama ni, saya rasa mcm nak cuba di LPPKN.bila google, jmpa blog ni.tadi bila period, takde la rasa nak nangis, tapi bila baca cerita2 kat sini yang saya rasa nangis :razz:

    i had inevitable miscarriage after 4 mths of pregnancy which is very rare. my previous doctor advice me to do some common 3 virus check, thyroid etc to determine the reason of miscarriage whether the problem is on me. i
    You think this LPPKN has this check available? because last time not only the hospital is dirty it also cost me 5k plus to remove the baby. i personallly think my previous doctor didnt’ give me good advice n very $$ face. i don’t want to go there anymore.

    [REPLY]

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    lina, faktor berat badan pun boleh juga jadi salah satu sebab sukar mengandung.. sebab hormon terganggu so period pun tak tetap..

    dah jumoa doktor belum? biasa kalau jumpa doktor dia akan suggest turunkan berat badan dulu..

    asik folik ni cuma persediaan dalaman untuk mengandung.. tapi kalau badan you tak ready tak akan jadi.

    please check dulu ye.. tengok doktor cakap apa.. rasanya maybe you ada PCOS + horman tak stabil.. nanti doktor akan bagi ubat sepatutnya

    alternative way, you boleh cuba makan Herba Maharani for a few months.. insyaallah.. this herba boleh stabilkan balik hormon dan regularkan period.. kandungan utama ialah ayam selasih (digunakan dalam perubatan cina dan melayu bagi mengubati masalah wanita).

    i ada cerita pasal herba ni kat blog ni.. u boleh tengok entri tu ada listed kat sidebar tepi..

    Little mama,

    i know its been sometimes since i updated this blog on my update.

    From the last update which was OCT 2011 – i had my first appointment at LPPKN on 15 Oct.
    Husband have SA test taken, and myself was on Duphaston. First day period was on 27th October – did my first blood test on 29.10.2010 (day3). Then on the 4th November Tawakal for HSG Xray. Next was my day 21 blood test.

    But unfortunately after 11 days from the HSG x-ray i got my period again. So staff said come back for blood test again which i did on 16.11.2010, took the 2nd blood check. Then I went again for the Day 21 – blood test on 06.12.2010. Staff advice for my next appointment with Doctor – I must come back on my 1st day of my next period.

    Since my period irregular she said wait till early of January , kalo still no period then i must go back to take Duphaston to induce my period. Since middle December I have this period cramps, body started to heat up, has pimples pop up, leg muscles started to ache, and breast was so hard and painful. I ingat kan symptom nak ber period….but tak keluar keluar.

    i also waited till 03.01.2010. Tak de period.Bila I call LPPKN minta appointment, staff advice cannot see doctor without having period. So she advice to go nearest clinic to do urine test and then take duphaston to induce my period. On 4th January – I went to clinic, explain the situation to the doctor who agreed to give Duphaston ( ubat terkawal maklumla kena banyak soal )….

    but bila I masuk bilik doc after give my urine sampel, doctor said the magic word which I wanted to hear for the past 2 years : ‘’Jenny you are pregnant. Your urine test came out positive for pregnancy’’. I was totally blank as it took me few minutes to digest the news that I was pregnant. This is the most memorable day of my life and I am so blessed.

    The only things i did differently this last 3 months compared to the last 1 ½ of trying for a baby is as below:

    1) I prayed and Trusted God that I will become a Mother.
    2) Exercise – I bought a tread mill and walked 25-30min alternate days.
    3) Eat healthy food – I have lotsa green vege ( Subway has it all).
    4) Stopped Nescafe, Tea, Milo – I have lotsa soya bean, air masak
    5) When making love – I completely stopped thinking about having a baby.
    6) I made sure we made love every 3 day ( last time we make love only during ovulation time sahaja) :-P

    Im now on my 8week and will be going for the ultrasound somewhere next week. I was told that I have to be really taking care of myself as the first 3 months are very crucial month.

    I wish and pray for all women’s out there, tak kisah la whether you orang melayu ke, india ke, cina ke apa apa la…We all are women and we understand how we feel about being a mother. I will continue praying for everyone for you to meet your Joy very soon. Be courage and patient…

    Salam semua,

    I was looking through the internet on IVF today and bumped into this blog/forum. Just to share with all of you, I did a Laparoscopy on 14th Feb 2011 and was discharged yesterday, I’m at home resting now.

    I’m 40 years old, I have 2 sons, 11 ( previous marriage) and 4( current marriage), and we have been trying to have another baby in the last 1 and a half years.
    I had C-Sect on both pregnancies.

    Done HSG 2 months ago, and there was blockage on both tubes, but the doctor said can do Laparoscopy maybe can help to unblock with the dye.

    They found a cyst on my right ovary and had it removed, but they cant do nothing much with the blocked tubes. Doc’s advise is to do IVF, my next appointment in 3 weeks time to discuss the possibility of the procedure.

    I was devastated to the fact that I cannot conceive the natural way anymore, but I believe in Allah’s Will, and I pray that He will give me the strength to go through this test.

    My husband is adamant about having more children and he agrees for me to do IVF, even if it is costly ( we opt for government hospital). Dia kata, duit boleh di cari.. InsyaAllah.. Allah swt itu maha Pencipta dan Maha Pemberi…

    Anyway, its now for us to decide to do it at LPPKN, or HUKM or UH ( UH still need to use HUKM lab, as UH doesnt have full fledge facilities for this procedure )

    I have friends who were positive about IVF; one lady said her sister inlaw did IVF for the first time at 40 yrs old and was successful; others did IVF and have twins and all of them were successful the first time around.

    Yes, there is no doubt that the doctor will say that for women who is 40 yrs above the success rate is between 15-25 percent.
    I also hear from some people that their friends or relatives was not able to conceive through IVF…

    However, I think the best thing for all of us who is trying to conceive is to have a positive mind in going through the process. Each and everyone of us have different experiences and its good that we can share.

    For our Muslim friends, banyak berdoa dan berzikir kepada Allah swt, mohon petunjuk dan pertolongan dari Nya. Segala yang berlaku adalah ketentuanNya dan Dia lah yang Maha Mengetahui apa yang terbaik untuk kita. Kita tak oleh putus asa dan putus harapan, terus mencuba , berserah dan tawakal kepadaNYa. Insyaallah..

    I wish all of you the very best in having your wishes and dreams come true!

    Hi Little Mama,

    Just wondering when you decided to seek infertility treatment at LPPKN, was there any consent form to the treatment that you and your husband needed to fill in? Thanks for your response.

    Little Mama™ Reply:

    aiza, when we register there was a form to fill and sign.. i can’t really remember the content of the form.. but from there only then we can proceed.

    salam….sy tengah search tentang isu ni..terjumpe blog ni…rupanya ramai yg senasib…
    sy dh 2 thn setengah kahwin..blom ade anak lagi…
    sy mula buat treatment di hospital swasta mulai jan 2011…
    kalo saya ingin buat rawatan di LPPKN, sy boleh sambung trus treatment atau kena mula dr awal?
    di hosptal swsta, sy dh try clonid 2x,dh buat blood test, dan suami dh buat sperm test…blood test ok…cuma sperm suami agak kurang dr segi keaktifan…dr just kasi ubat herb untuk meningkatkan lagi kualiti sperm suami…
    skarang sy disarankan untuk buat HSG …
    Boleh x sy nak sambung rawatan d LPPKN ataupon kena start dr awal pula kalo nak truskan d LPPKN?
    boleh tak bagi no contact LPPKN d Shah Alam?
    trima kasih…

    [REPLY]

    kem Reply:

    salam noor,

    kalau di lppkn kena start dari mula. saya pon dah buat IUI 2x di private. kemudian rasa mcm nak tukar doc lain then saya buat apoinment dgn LPPKN KL. di sana mmg kita kena mula dari awal sbb mereka treat every patient as new patient.

    saya pernah juga cuba buat apoinment dgn lppkn shah alam tp dimaklumkan mereka hanya terima kes yang peringkat awal saja cth mcm kalau nak dapatkan ubat kesuburan. kalau mcm saya dah pegi jauh i.e IUI 2x mereka suruh saya terus pergi ke lppkn kl saja.

    lagipun kalau di s.alam doc bukan hari2 datang. seminggu mcm 2-3x sahaja. so lama kalau nak tunggu. saya rasa better buat di kl coz doc pon perempuan n layanan lagi baik dari private. saya mmg puas hati di lppkn kl ni cuma 1 je tak larat nak ulang alik kl-s.alam utk procedure yg mmg kerap kena dtg. tp nak buat mcm mana, kena la usaha.

    harap jawapan ni dapat membantu noor. gud luk

    Dear LPPKN
    I’m foreigner married women from Pakistan, my husband is studying here. we got married 3 years before but don’t have any baby, i heard about LPPKN with my friend for fertility process, so in her instruction i went to LPPKN on 13th july 2011. LPPKN members were very nice & cooperative with me. I m so much satisfied with their services n hospitality. They took an hour for consultation.They ask my husband to bring sperm for analysis. Report was normal. And us to come again on my 2nd day of miens. but i am little disappointed with the bills which they charged me out. for consultation they charge me RM80 , for sperm analysis RM 50 & sperm scan for RM50. Total we paid RM 180. why its too high & just double for we foreigners? can u please help me to know how much will be the cost for total fertility treatment for we foreigners ? Because i m full satisfy by the team members of LPPKN n wants to do my treatment in LPPKN?

    Dear Mama,

    I am married for 3 years now. Age of 29 & next year will be 30. trying for baby since day 1. Did HSG on the 1st year, no blocks but still no child. Took clomid after 1 year 50mg 5-9 days, pregnant that month & miscarried. After 2 month saw a fertility dr & was put on clomid 100mg 2-6 days. Doctor told not to take day 5 change to day 2. Tried sendiri & still tak jadi. Increase to 150mg 2-6days followed by 1st iui, failed jugak..Now took clomid 200mg 2-6days & second IUI done last week. No symptom. Dr put me on duphaston after the IUI. Praying hard this month. All the best to the ladies here. Will share my experience end of the month kalu sukses…

Just to let you know that Im currently undergoing the fertility treatment at LPPKN. I had completed all the test and tomorrow is my 1st appointment with the Doctor. The wait is stressing me in a way. But hope to get good option feedback from the Doc. I have been very down and disappointed but THANK YOU for giving so much hope and encouragement. Hope to come back with some good news in a couple of months time
