Merrill Posted March 14, 2004 Report Share Posted March 14, 2004 Has anyone with POTS had in vitro fertilization? I'm going through it right now--will probably go through extraction and implantation within the next 5-7 days. I'm 42, so the clock's ticking and I have to do this now--but unfortunately, I also feel like I'm going through a bad POTS spell. (I was diagnosed about 6 weeks ago; I've had it since a teenager, I believe. Some years better than others.) I don't have problems with fainting or BP--occasional dizziness, but big time tachycardia. The only time my heart rate is under 100 is when I'm sleeping; it's not uncommon for it to be in the 140s or higher.At this point though, I don't know if some of the things I'm feeling are from the POTS, from the hormones, from this stupid head cold... Or if all three of these things are combining to make me feel just very very tired and awful.Have other POTS people gone through in vitro? What was your experience with the hormone shots etc? Did you feel better once pregnant and blood volume goes up by 1/3rd? (That's my hope...) Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
