I've heard a lot about being over suppressed! Have they given you any idea what they will do this time?

Thanks for keeping me company

babydancing13 I see you've had two FETs- what grade embryos were they??

I hope this cycle will be your perfect cycle and you get your bfp
Hi,

My first FET we transferred 4AB & 2AC - early loss
Second FET - 4BC & 2AC - BFN.

My first IVF fresh transfer it was a 5AA blastocyst and BFN.
If this cycle is rubbis/Fails, we will consider donor eggs next. Good luck with your cycle. x

Baby - Do you have male factor as well as I noticed you have been having icsi? Do they think there is a reason that egg quality might be an issue? My egg quality doesn't seem good so same, we will consider donor eggs too.

Scerena - I don't know that much about pcos, is that the reason for your infetility? I'm the opposite, low amh so not enough eggs.

Not sure on protocol plans for next cycle yet, I haven't had a treatment plan. Want to get started so it all feels real!!

What are you ladies up to today, working? X

Hi ladies,

Hope you don't mind me joining you

Bit of background I'm 35 o/h 41, I have a 15yr old from a previous relationship. After many years trying we had investigations and it was found I have secondary infertility (blocked tubes). After several surgeries and losses and a ruptured ectopic we resorted to private Ivf. That first cycle failed but we were lucky enough to get 11 blastocysts to freeze. We have done 2 FET's also, the 2nd one resulting in our 23 month old daughter who is our absolute world. We have 3 blastocysts left and have been held back from using them due to lack of money but my parents have just given us the money to use them. We have our consultation on the 14th of this month. Can't wait to get started but I will be at the wrong point in my cycle, we will be doing a medicated FET so it will be November when I start injecting etc.

(I'm Claire by the way)

claire I have a 20month old (from ICSI) so similar in age! About to do our first FET! I'm too doing a medicated FET but no needles- just nasal spray, estrogen tablets and progesterone.

mrsw11 yes that's the reason for my infertility, I've had ovarian drilling, lap and dye, clomid cycles, Menopur cycles, then I was lucky enough to fall on the first ICSI cycle

Bet you can't wait to find out your plan as it makes it feel more real doesn't it!!

babydancing13 you had really good embryos! I really hope this cycle will be your cycle

Hi ladies, I'd like to join.

I'm 36 and have blocked tubes from an infection in my twenties. We started ttc in 2013 but a lap and dye confirmed the worst. I was supposed to start IVF in September but they found a 4cm cyst on my ovary so cancelled that cycle. I had another scan today and it has shrunk to 18mm so I get to start early November using long protocol. I'm a little anxious so will be good to share the journey with you all

Welcome Asterimou! Sounds like you've quite a journey already, it must have been disappointing to find the cyst but brilliant news that its shrunk and you are ready to go! A few of us here have done IVF/ICSI before so if you have any questions ask away!

Scerena - ovarian drilling always sounds painful to me, I think its the drilling bit! What does it do? I'm sure you'll be lucky again with your fet.

Hurry up November, I hate wishing time away but I just want to get on with it now! x

Thanks Mrs W. One thing I did want to ask is how emotional did you all get during the IVF cycle? Is there certain parts that are worse than others? I have a pretty intense job and am worried about bursting into tears in front of colleagues. I have a few days annual leave I could take and I also work at home a fair bit. Would be good to know if you recommend any times to stear clear of the office?

Hi Ladies, I am starting my first FET which should result in my transfer on November 10th. Prior I have had 2 unsuccessful IVFs, my first I was on antagonist protocol with only BCPs as down regulation. This caused me to be over suppressed believe it or not so for this last IVF they added Menapur and didn't down regulate me at all. I produced much more the second time and managed to have a chemical pregnancy. So I am going to be trying my FET in the hopes that I will get my forever baby!

Good luck to us all!

I did pretty well on the stim drugs and didn't get emotional, however, during the TWW and on the progesterone....I was a nightmare. I was very weepy and depressed. Though I think a part of me knew it didn't work. I would definitely take some time off after the transfer if you can.
