TTC after 35

waiting for some positive happenings.

At our last RE appt the DH and I had to get new blood work done as a begining workup for our IVF in Apr. So the nurse calls me today and says not to worry but something has come up in your bloodwork. I was silent.......the last time this happened my HIV test came back inconcslusive.......yeah that was a great few days having a freak out .....for no reason...why she just did not say we need to have the test done again.......however no HIV.

So back to todays call. She says you have a virus called CMV cytomegliovirus. We will not be able to move forward with the IVF until this passes as it causes serious birth defects. A retest in a couple weeks. Has anyone has this come up in a blood test or have exp. with CMV????

Re: waiting for some positive happenings.

  • I have no clue what that is or experience, I just wanted to say that I'm sorry you at dealing with setbacks. They get very discouraging.
    Me- 37, DH- 32. TTC- June 2010- Adoption journey started April 2012
  • Awww man...I don't have any clue on this virus but I'm so sorry you have to maybe delay IVF. Obviously we don't want anything to harm the baby but why is it always when we are ready to start something? Hopefully everything all works out.

  • I have no experience with CMV, but I hope it clears up soon. 
  • No experience, but I'm sorry about the IVF setback.  
  • I looked it up when I was tested, and as I recall, it's pretty common in the general population, usually with no symptoms. I'm sorry you've hit another stumbling block. Are they having you see someone to try to treat it?

    I hope you can get it cleared up quickly so that you can move forward!
