    Hi girls,

    Janey my cycle was messed up too after the meds. I was a few days late, didn't feel pregnant anyway like! CD5 today for me, started temping this cycle which is driving me mad already. I keep forgetting to take my temp as soon as I wake up!

    Ellie, how did your scan go?

    Hey lovely Tina, I knew the meds would affect me but think they've added about 8 days to my cycle, hoping it's calming down this month. Don't think my new diet helped. Reading a fab blog about pcos and what supplements to take so going to order today. I'm CD5 too, might try to dig out my thermometer! Hoping you get somewhere this month. How are you feeling? Xxx

    Hi both, scan went well! Lining is less than 1mm so drugs are working a treat. I start progynova tomorrow, another scan on 1st July and transfer is 11th July 😁☺️
    Can't believe it's finally happening! I've booked a week off work from transfer day xx

    woohoo Ellie! Great news :D :D

    Janey, I'm feeling okay. Obviously disheartened after so many failed transfers but I guess I have nothing to lose and everything to gain so just gotta keep plodding along in the hope that a miracle will happen for us. What supplements are you ordering?

    Im still shocked that non of your 4 transfers have been successful, I'm really hoping you have a natural miracle bfp especially after all the money you have spent!
    So I know your not supposed to test till 11 days after 5 day embie transfer but did anyone test earlier? I've got a week off work from transfer but it's still not official test date when I go back. Just like to know if I'm pregnant or not by time I went back to work just because my job is very active and demanding. Getting way ahead of myself but did my estimated due date n it's my birthday! And it's my mums birthday if it's twins haha x

    I think you would definitely get a positive before 11 days, the average seems about 8 days after a 5 day transfer to get a positive.

    I am still shocked to the core that none of our embryos implanted. It's gonna baffle me for the rest of my life I think. Just wish we had an answer why!!

    It must be heart breaking Tina. I really do hope you have more luck trying naturally! I remember feeling similar when we had no explanation to conceiving naturally. You really do question yourself! Big hugs xx
    Trying to remember to take a pill 3 times a day is hard! I was bad enough when I was taking the pill 🙈🙈 that seems sooo long ago now! X

    Hey girls. How are you all?

    ES how are you doing? Nearly done!!! Eek x

    Well I started OPKing on Saturday day 10 (low) then yesterday tested & hubby was like ace flashy smiley face, I was like Noooooooo, really???! So soon, last month was day 19.... And to put a spanner in the works we go away next week, so I'm praying for ovulation in 5 days from now, so I can get to have my 9dpo blood test. I should be happy, I'm due to be ovulating & at a better CD14, but my body always seems to want to mess with my plans!!! On a very positive note, if this is how my next cycle is going to be, I'll hopefully be doing a FET in 5 weeks!!!! Feel excited, then get a pang of doubt! Xxx

    Hi Janey!
    I'm doing ok thank you, little a bit emotional on Saturday but other than that not many side effects! Still been able to get on with my normal routine/work. Can't believe 2 weeks today I will be PUPO!
    Hopefully all goes well at my scan on Friday!
    Imagine if you fell pregnant naturally now 🙈
    How are you doing Tina?
    Hi to everyone else! Xx

    Oh how exciting ES.... Really not long to go now. Have you finished your injections? Praying you get your BFP. You've been patiently waiting so long, does it feel like ages ago since collection? You'll be fine on Friday.

    My OH is adamant that we'll have our miracle #2 BFP naturally, especially now we know we ovulate, I'm just rely on OH lazy spermies to find my hard boiled eggs! I'm not so sure, I think one day we'll get pregnant again naturally but think it will be months & months maybe years, but tbh we've not got the time, I'm edging closer to 40 OH edging closer to 50, which is why we're using the FET process. If I was younger I'd give naturally a go for a couple of years.... CD13 and another flashy smiley for me this morning, hoping that continues so I can have my blood test on 11th when I'm back from holiday. X

    Unfortunately not, still got 9 more to do but it has gone by quick! Yer it does but I'm glad we had the wait, gave my body time to heal/recover haha
    You never know Janey! It would be amazing if you did fall pregnant naturally! It's so hard to think it possible when years go by. Aw you have your blood test on my transfer day 😊 is anyone on Facebook? Love to put a face to your names x

    Hi Ladies,

    I am trying for last 5 years with PCOS with no luck. I also measure my basal body chart and it shows I don't ovulate :(

    I have been referred to IVF in April. (2 cycle - NHS funded)

    I am new to IVF and recently had my first consultation on 24th June to plan my treatment. They put me on short cycle protocol.

    My normal cycle is anything between 30-39 days but this moth today is my day 44 and still no period

    I have my drug appointment on 11th July and I am still awaiting invoice from LWH. I have been told all my drugs will deliverd once I pay my invoice

    I am not sure to wait for my periods or I can start drug after my drug appointment :wacko:

    Welcome Urvi, you can go to your drugs appointment without having your drugs or started your period. They just want to teach you how to administer the drugs.

    5 years is a long time but you're nearly starting IVF so hopefully not much longer to wait.

    Oh ES not that many to go, I think I missed the injections as that was my countdown! Well I know it can happen, as I fell pregnant in November, but it took over a year of unprotected BD. I'm hoping that as I'm doing OPK for the first time ever, it might happen. Kind of wishing i hadn't waited so long after having my LG to start treatment. Oh well CD 14 and still a flashy smiley face, I could just do with 2 more days of flashy and I'll be set for my blood test xxx

    I'd give them a call if the invoice still hasn't arrived urvi. I had to do it on my last cycle because it was coming close to my start date!
    Got everything crossed for you Janey!
    My scan is this morning, hopefully everything goes according to plan! Are the just checking my lining is thickening up? X

    Yes ES, they're just checking that it's over 8mm (I think). I'm sure you'll be fine, 10 days to go for you. How exciting!!! Bet it doesn't feel real. Xxx

    I'm still on flashy smiley face, anxious now that the solid smiley face won't come!!! I'm never happy ;)... At least if it doesn't come I'll be home & can go for the blood test! Xxx

    Happy Friday everyone xxx

    All is good! Told me the liking needed to be atleast 6mm n mine was 8mm. Feeling very bloated today which is making me feel sick. The nurse did say from looking at my bowel on the scan that I was constipated so told me to get some lactulose... More drugs lol. Only just sinking in that the next time I will be there my little embie will be going in ❤️❤️
    Yer there's positives with each out come Janey, I used to think getting that solid smiley was a brilliant feeling though 👍🏻 xx
