Thanks for the messages of support. This was my first ever FET and use of Progynova. I still had bad legs today so went to GP just to check for DVT! She thought no big problems so maybe symptoms from a virus or something...means I probably could have carried on. Will have to wait now for AF (I did not know how long that would be until KKH) and go back to clinic on 8th May to see what they say.

PMC - what is Cetrotide? Good luck for scan too.

KKH - will clomid do the same as progynova? Why did they say medicated cycle in the first place? I actually originally wanted to do a natural transfer but the clinic shuts at weekends and my lining was not great at the original scan. Feel a bit worried about trying progynova again if that is what they say for me.

Faith - fingers crossed for you.

Night all X

    Thinking about it, I used cetrotide and gonal f when I was using my own eggs, so I don't think they use them for FET???

    Cetrotide® works by directly blocking the trigger effect of GnRH. This blocking action stops the premature LH surge in women undergoing controlled ovarian stimulation before they begin. In doing so, this allows eggs to reach the level of development needed for fertilization.

    KKH & Midlandlass - your AF should arrive sooner than that. My withdrawal bleeds have always started 3 days after I stop all meds. But that is at the end of a failed cycle so maybe it's different.
    My understanding of progynova is the same. It helps to build lining. If you read the packet if you were having your menopause and taking these hrt tabs you'd take one a day. We're taking a lot more that this (4 for me) & I think sometimes the body reacts badly. I developed lumps in my breasts on one of my cycles. My gp was great, didn't panic and said carry on. They went by themselves and I got my BFP. Midlands lass: let's see what clinic say on the 8/5.

    KKH: did they offer you patches to try and assist the lining? I've never had to use them but my consultant has mentioned that when ladies don't respond to progynova alone they do that too.

    MrsC78: when is your ET?

    Afm: I'm feeling ok today, less panicky. Just two sleeps to go.

    Love & baby dust all. x

    FAith - thanks for the info. AF always seems to take so much longer when you are waiting for it!

    KKH - Clomid is used to boost ovulation, it's used a lot over here as a first try with infertility as it it;s cheap & if you don;t have any blockages or mechanical issues it can kickstart things.  As I was doing a natural FET cycle, my Dr mentioned using it or tamoxifen to give a boost to OV, however clomid can sometimes affect your lining, thinning it out which would not be good for a frozen cycle! It;s not supposed to be used for more than 6 cycles, so I presume they must be considering a natural cycle if they are talking about using it.

    When I was attempting a medicated FET, I was prescribed estrofem which is a oestrogen drug used for HRT & also the patches similar stuff to you Faith, they seem to use different brands of medication here in Ireland, as you say they were both to help increase lining.  This cycle I was prescribed viagra vaginally which seemed to do the trick!

    Faith hope you had a good night out with your DH, 2 sleeps - exciting!!!!

    My OTD is sunday, so a few more sleeps for me.

    Ladies it's another negative for me. Tiring now. Going to change clinics to ARGC as it might be my immunes playing up or something.
    Good luck everyone. x
