Thanks boopin Yes, here's hoping 2016 will be everyone's year!

I've been trying to find some silver lining in it and many pages I've read state that a CP is better than a BFN for e.g. IVF because it means you have a high chance of it working for you at one point. You were just unlucky and the embryo was genetically abnormal. Hoping this is true, especially as I'm turning 37 in May and only have 2 IVF tries left now (although unlimited FETs)!

YES Kat, I definitely agree that the silver lining in your recent experience is that you now know you can become pregnant with your eggs and hubbies sperm. It'll happen again. Just stay strong and relentless. Infertility is so unfair most of the time, but I believe that it can be conquered!! Try and relax and take things one step at a time. I think that remaining calm and reducing stress along with taking care of your over all health is imperative to a successful transfer. Our bodies are more receptive when we're not stressing and worrying like mad women.. lol!! And another good thing you have going is that you have unlimited FET's, that's reassuring =.)

Wrlcome Kat!!! Faaark I can't believe you have to wait for a freaking letter for them to tell u about your other embryos. You poor thing!! Hell! That sucks!! My clinic calls in the afternoon to update and I wait for that call I can tell u! Sorry to hear about your CP - but you're right silver lining. Your body will get there!
Hopefully next time they can change your protocol next time for your second round. I'm surprised they went through with an egg extraction if they only knew they were only going to get a few. This happened to me and they cancelled the round and said we will up the dose a bit next time. We didn't pay anything though. But I'm sure your Dr will tweak things for your next round and you'll get more eggs. I think 1 good day 5 embryo out of 3 collected is a good result anyway. Even though it didn't turn out - you've got quality in there they just need to up the numbers.

Tina - I forget where u live but I'm in Australia and going through Genea clinic. So their genetic testing is $750 an embryo. And if u have lots to test its capped at $3,500. We didn't get any $ back from Medicare for the PGD (or is it PGS I forget!) . But considering its about $3,500 to put a frozen one in (with a $1,500 or something rebate from Medicare) I figure it's worth it. Or probably u get back less with the new changes next year.

My Hysterscopy is booked in for Monday afternoon. I'm actually looking forward to the nice drugs they give and having a quiet day on Monday/Tuesday. Haven't been able to work out properly for back to back cycles so like a loser I asked if it was ok to work out morning of surgery. Arghhh the same 'you should take it easy' answer - it's just my stress relief. Am I they only one who gets frustrated by this?? I've got this weekend - might fit in a yoga class too because I've been worried about ovary contortion so have done thing!

Yeah it's bizarre but I guess being in a hospital they love their paperwork

They went through with the IVF because I've had 6 medicated IUIs earlier this year that all ended in BFN, not even any CP(s) or anything. So they felt doing a 7th IUI wasn't going to get me closer to my BFP since the odds for an IUI working for me are slim to none with that track record.

It wasn't a 5 day, it was a 2 day because they claim they've had the best results with putting them back at that stage The other 2 were supposed to be cultivated to day 5 and they would see if they were viable for freezing but I guess they weren't since I never got a letter I think the only thing they told us was that the other 2 were slightly behind the one they were putting back in but were still within the norm for 2 day embryos and they'd see in 3 days if they'd be viable for freezing.

I hope your Hysteroscopy goes well and you get good results

Hi everyone

Hoping I maybe able to join you?! I've been trying for no2 for 2.5yrs now, about 18 months ago I reached the limit of drugs they would give me unless i did IVF - sadly i was not able to do the IVF at that time and then eventually it was booked for December last year....only to be cancelled again i was gutted! This time i'm hoping all goes to plan....had my booking appointment Wednesday and my EC is booked for the 8th Feb - boy that seems like an eternity away!! I guess i've waited this long so a bit longer will have to do

I'm doing a short antagonist protocol as I have a high amh and also pcos so they don't want to risk completely shutting me down. I thought you went of day 1 of your period for this but they very bluntly informed me that I have to go on northisterone from day 21 of cycle so they can 'book me in to their diary' as otherwise they could have everyone ringing on the same day. Fair enough i suppose.

So....i'm sat here waiting for my medication to be delivered between 8-12 , very early in my opinion seeing as i won't be taking anything for quite some time but at least it feels like a step in the right direction.

Kat sorry about your last cycle and them writing about embryo's - thats really mean fx they get your meds better this time so you get some more eggs.

Miranda I was told the same when I asked about riding as I previously rode horses professionally (not now so not an issue) but they constantly gave me the same sentence grrr - i'm sure if you did a gentle one you would be fine i guess just not overdoing it is they key. Good luck for monday!

Hi Tina ugh isn't it typical that ov appears when your partner is away Do you have any provisional dates booked for the ISCI?



Hi everyone else sorry i haven't read the whole thread yet I'm going to read through the whole thread today so i'll catchup with everyone later but just wanted to say hi and hopefully we will all have a bfp soon !

Hi nimbec

Oy sorry that your last IVF was cancelled I hear you though, January feels like a bit of a long time away for me but hopefully our wait goes by quickly. I always feel like the time between just before Christmas and until a few days after New Years goes by pretty fast.

Had no idea what northisterone is so had to look it up So it delays AF?

Thanks, I hope so as well. I think the long protocol just wasn't for me, they decided to try it based on the fact my hormones look pretty good I guess but I don't think they can know how each person reacts since everyone is a bit different. The down regulation meds also gave me a 20-something mm cyst hence why I had to down regulate for an extra week (so 3 weeks instead of 2) But I did get 3 good quality eggs and now know my eggs are not the issue which is great to know as I was concerned that that might be our problem. It was a huge weight off my shoulders when we got the call that all 3 did fertilise as I was afraid none or maybe only one would. We just need to have a few more and hope that we're luckier next time and get a healthier embryo.

Oh I used to ride! I was actually pretty good but stopped after many years (long, long painful story). Many of my riding teachers in the US predicted an OL future for me I started again when I moved here to Denmark but stopped again as the riding teacher was a total witch and hated the fact she wasn't good enough to teach me anything (she was the worst one I've ever had). So I stopped because she was being nasty to me and favoring this guy that was a horrible rider (he was also doing dangerous things due to his cluelessness) and wanted to let him take over the school horse I was basically training for riding school even though he was no where near good enough to handle that horse if he started acting up. I was going to start again but then DH and I started TTCing and I didn't dare, fearing a fall would mess something up. So am planning to start again some months after we do have a baby but only for fun. I know one of my SIL's rode before and after her pregnancies but would think that's a bit dangerous considering a serious fall could potentially cause an M/C.

Thanks MissCassie, so sorry to hear you went through the same thing Yes it's truely upsetting, I cried all afternoon yesterday after getting the news and have been tearing up on and off today Haven't started bleeding yet but have been cramping today so thinking it's only a matter of time. I've read though that a CP means we have a really good chance of IVF/FET working for us so here's hoping we both get our rainbows in January

Thanks Kat, yes horses are somewhat addictive 😉 I definately wouldn't ride when pregnant or after egg collection it's just not worth the risk in my opinion. We try so hard to get pregnant personally I can't understand why anyone would take the risk! That said I know plenty who do.

I've heard the same that it's good news for you as means you can get pregnant fx Jan is for you!!

Fx for everyone!
