Catfish, welcome to the thread. I found out 2 weeks ago that my embryo’s are also frozen 2 together.  From wha tI have been told they would not freeze any embryo’s that did not havea good chance of making it. (We had 6 frosties but they only froze 4 as 2 not considered good enough).
Hi PMC good to know that your transfer was 23 days. I never did down reg . I spoke to the clinic and they said I needed to start taking the utrogestan tablets yesterday but that one day should not make a difference. How are you feeling?

Freaking out a bit today, spoke to the clinic and asked about the frosties. They never told me back when they were frozen what grade they were or anything. ( I don’t even know how many eggs were collected. I only know 8 embies 2 not good enough to freeze, 2 put back and 4 frosties.) When I asked she said grade good. Then she started talking about the call on Friday morning and how they will tell me then if any survivied, oh please let them be ok.

    Hi Ladies,


    Thankyou for the welcome! Have my scan on Fri and all being well I start the Oestrogen tablets on Saturday. They are new to me i hope they are not too bad with side effects!


    I think my embryos were frozen by by vitrification and it was very new to the clinic at the time. Does anyone think the methods make a difference?


    Sorry been working all day and very tired  :-X  I will catch up on the thread properly over the next couple of days!


    I wish everyone good luck whatever phase of the cycle you are on. Rest up and stay positive, miracles DO happen!  :)

    Hello

    I had a minor meltdown after my nurse's appointment. On the plus side paying for the cycle at Homerton is brilliant so far - I get Dr Gudi for every appointment and one Nurse the whole time!! It feels like complete luxury!

    I am on the usual suprecur, progynova, cyclogest but a few more bits thrown in for good measure including an endo scrape, clexane, thyroxine, injectable progesterone... I know its all for the best but I hatethis bit as I always seem to have a meltdown from the stress/ anticipation.

    Start injections next week and they reckon transfer will be first week in July. Is seems a long time to be on drugs for a FET. Is everyone else on drugs for 6 weeks?

    Hello can I join you all.

    Starting treatment cycle tommorow. We had finished treatment in Jan but a clinic has offered us 2 5 day blasts with embryo donation. So here we are again! 7th attempt.

    Will be taking 5 progynova a day, cyclogest, asprin, clexane injections, antibiotics and antivirals. Is anyone taking antivirals? Doc was unsure have many to give me and has prescribed 2 weeks. Just wondering if I continue after transfer?

    WelcomeAMD, your journey is heartbreaking. 7th time lucky!
    Hi Ballboy, minor meltdowns are a part of the process. X
    Pixie9 I read that the success rates are higher when they freeze with vitrification.
    The closer it gets to Friday the more stressed I am getting. Please let them survivie the defrost.

    Gillian1 it certainly is a nerve racking time waiting on news of your embryos. Keeping everything crossed for your little ones. X

    AMD welcome to the thread. Sorry to hear of your bad run of cycles. I've never used antivirals, but I'm sure someone else on here will be of help. Wishing you lots of luck with your new cycle  ^pray^

    Ballboy. It's mind boggling isn't it, when you see a huge list of drugs to take and certain times of the day to take them. I've made myself a chart with dates at the side and times on the top. The within the columns I wrote what meds had to be taken, so each lot of drugs were in the corresponding times and dates, stuck it on my fridge, then just crossed it off once I'd taken it. So much easier than trying to remember everything. Good luck.

    AFM - I'm still feeling chilled out and calm. Wouldn't think I'm 5dp5d transfer... Anyway, its a good feeling not to be stressed out all the time.
