Hi All!

I did my first injection this morning, started my 3x a day progynova and uterine scan booked in for a fortnight's time! Eeek!
Transfer likely to be around the end of the month!

    Kirsty happened to me last time
    Scratch can bring on period especially if you end the pill on day 21 too
    Call your clinic but you should have time still

    Hi everyone,

    I am also hoping to have FET , I am on the cycles buddy thread too, I have not had FET b4 so thought be good to connect here too. I am single, 43 and having double donation treatment , though have had own egg treatment which failed.  The clinic reopened in June and i went for a scan with a view to have FET but they said I should have the long protocol in July so starting that next week ( buserilin). There are 7 fozen blastocycts. It continues to be a long , complex journey and i continue to process the donor issues as things come up all the time and I find  hearing from / about others who have had the help of donors really helpful.

    I haven't taken buserilin b4 , any advice ? Much strength to all, so many have had things cancelled of late at this crazy time, one step at a time for me xxx

    Hi all, I had my transfer on Thursday so now itís the big wait for test day. Iím on patches, pessaries and prontogest injections every 4th day, feeling bloated and quite tired but hopefully it will be worth it.  The clinic is really well organised and I felt really safe when I went for scans and the transfer.
    Good luck everybody and yes letís hope this is a lucky thread.

    Hi all, just joining in re steroids. I was told hfea had Ďbannedí them currently and would be reviewing in Sept time?! Iíve been told this by two of the London IVF clinics?! I had 3 recurrent miscarriages, slightly raised NK cells so def want to take them. Anyone else heard this?!

    Hi, yes when I spoke with my consultant in London that's what I was told too. He said they might be able to prescribe from September.  Maybe something has changed?

    Hi all, I had my FET transfer a couple of weeks ago and Iím on steroids - itís not been an issue for me at all (prednisone 25mcg). Iím in the uk and they were ordered through Fertility2u.
    Good luck ladies! X

    Someone I know who's on the board of the HFEA told me the advice on steroids is just that, advice, which isn't binding. Technically, nothing the HFEA have said would necessarily stop clinics prescribing steroids if it's just advice, would it?

    HopeCove, that's interesting - did your clinic say anything about taking them being risky?

    I'm v torn about what to do about this - I am worried that if I wait till Sept they won't be able to prescribe them either. And I'm not sure that it is actually the best idea to be on steroids right now, but I'm not a medic and I don't know how *much* of a risk to me or my baby getting Covid on steroids would be, and I can totally understand the clinics' caution. If the risk wasn't significant, I'd be tempted to go ahead soon - at the moment I am totally dithering. Sigh.
