Please can I ask if we could take a little of your time to answer a few quetions, listed below, to help out those going down the FET route.  It would be so good to hear how everyone has faired as this journey is so hard.  The results aren't going to be used for anything - only for us to see the postivie outcomes of FET.  By completing the questions, you'll be helping others with their forthcoming FET cycle.

    1.   Did you have Natural FET or Medicated FET?

    Bucerilin to down reg, prognova, cyclogest
    3.   Did you use meds for immune issues?
    No
    4.   Did you also take extra supplements?
    No
    5.   How embryos did you thaw?
    only had three to thaw (Had OHSS, and were theoretically too poor quality to freeze but we persuaded them to give us/them a chance) all three beat odds and thawed in tact!
    6.   How many Embryo's did you Transfer?
    two - one 4 cell and one 8 cell, both frozen on day 3 and were extremely fragmented
    7.   Did you go for SET?
    No
    8.   What stage embryo's did you have transferred?
    one 4 cell and one 8 cell, both frozen on day 3 and were extremely fragmented
    9.   What grade embryo's did you have transfered?
    Both 'fair' (excellent/good/fair/poor)
    10. What was your lining thickness prior to ET?
    didn't scan me, but bloods day before transfer were: Estrodoil ~ 1070, Progesterone ~ 35     
    11. Was the result a single baby or twins (or more...)?
    Twins! they are 5 1/2 years old now and perfect despite being born 10 weeks early.  I have also since delivered a term singleton - conceived naturally!
    12. How many FETs did you have before getting a BFP?
    this was the first - fresh IVF cycle was cancelled due to OHSS, so this was first transfer
    13. Did you have any cramps after transfer?
    Not really, but have high pain threshold (I am a silent labouror, don't feel contractions until 9cm! Great, but a bit of a panic and rush ;) )
    14. Did you spot after transfer?
    Don't recall it.  I did however test early as I was full on red flow bleeding with cramps as I have witnessed is common to multiple pregnancies.  I continued to have bleeding episodes throughout my pregnancy with no known cause.
