IVF or FET November/December 2015 - chat thread


Hi all,

I am going to be doing my third attempt at IVF in late November hopefully a d just wondered if anyone else was going to be doing a cycle at a similar time and wants to chat?

I am 35 and have a 3 year old from a natural pregnancy. We started ttc no 2 after 14 months as we wanted a 2 year age gap and again got pregnant quickly but that ended in mmc at 12 weeks. Since then I have been unable to get pregnant and in January was diagnosed with low amh. My first ivf I got 6 eggs but bfn. My second attempt my follies didn't respond well (I believe because I was ill and stressed!) so we converted to iui. We have enough savings for one more ivf so this is our last chance to give our dd a sibling!!

A few threads seems a bit quiet and just wondered if anyone else is up for some daily chat, keep each other sane while we wait for treatment and give support during each others cycles.

I have a 20 month old daughter from my first IVF.

We are hoping to start an FET ASAP hopefully on my next af for baby number two. We have 2 day 5 blasts and we are considering using both if they let us.

No needles on this medicated FET just nasal spray, oestrogen and progesterone.

I am so sorry to hear about your miscarriage

Hi scerena! Congrats on your little girl! I have a daughter too although mne is 3 now, cant believe how quickly that's gone!

Fab news that you had some blasts in the freezer to use. Wishing you the best of luck with your FET, when is AF due?

I don't have my protocol yet but my clinic said to expect the cycle to happen end of November so you are likely ahead of me.

Congratulations on your little girl too time does fly by doesn't it!

My cycles are VERY irregular I'm only cd20 but could be up to cd56ish so that would be around November so not sure on a start date!

What protocol did you do last time? With your first cycle Did your embryos make it to blasts?
Was your first and second cycles different protocols?

That must be frustrating to have such irregular cycles when you are TTC or do treatment. Do you know why they are so irregular? Well I hope this is a shorter cycle for you and AF doesn't keep you waiting so that you can get started sooner! But I am happy to keep you company as I have ages to wait yet!

My first protocol was antagonist. No we didn't get any blasts, I only had 1 embryo left by day 2 so we transferred it. The thought was that the drugs did not do anything for the egg quality. Second cycle we did long protocol and that didn't suit me at all, I have only got one ovary and it didn't really respond, I think they over supressed me. I always thought IVF was just IVF and it either worked or it didn't. I had no idea so much trial and error could be involved for some of us!

Hey, *waves*

I am on the long protocol. I will be having endometrial scratch on 5th Nov, and start Stims around 18th Nov for retrieval early December.

Good luck xx

mrsw11 yes I have polycytic ovaries so my cycles can be very long and I don't always ovulate... Really hoping I'm not waiting for too long so I can get started!!!

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 Mrs W, Let's hope so! I start Norethisterone on 11th of October - this Sunday. I hate it, but it has to be done. x
