    Hi everyone! Sorry for radio silence - mental days at work this week.

    Dusky - I am on from day 10 HRT 20 mg Clexane am and 40 mg Clexane pm. Aspirin 75mg only on a BFP. I am homozygous C677T MTHFR and 4g/5g PAI -1 mutation which are both genetically inherited thrombophilias. Clexane is also shown to help reduce inflammation which can lead to micro clots at the maternal/foetal interface. For my FET cycle the Clexane is prescribed by Dr Gorgy at FGA who is a reproductive immunologist and if pregnant I can get 40mg Clexane from my GP as was previously prescribed in a past pregnancy by the local NHS recurrent miscarriage consultant. If youíre able to go private you could do a zoom consult with Dr G and get a private prescription.

    Maria - how was the scan? Was it the downreg one? I have my first HRT lining scan next Tuesday after 10 days of HRT

    Emily - Iím on lots of immune drugs including IVIG drip, hydroxychloroquine, neupogen, clexane, prontogest PIO injections... plus lots of supplements. I highly recommend for nutrition/vits a consult with Melanie Brown who specialises in IVF and Pregnancy nutrition. I have a bespoke vitamin protocol from her to run alongside my FET. High dose fish oil is a good blood thinner too - Iím using Bare Biology Heart and Soul 1tsp a day until I start clexane. Then will reduce fish oil to 2x a week.

    Tiger Smiles - so sorry to hear your news. It really sucks after all the hard work to get to an ET. Will you try again?

    AFM: Currently sat in my RIís London clinic on an IVIG drip - day 6 of HRT for me. Had to drive 3 hours down to London as i feel train is too risky right now with the infection rates in London for covid. Will take it easy and make a few stops on way back I think. I have my lining thickness check on Tuesday to see if itís doing ok. Will also start clexane that day too. Had to make a big spreadsheet day by day to keep on top of all the ivf, immune drugs plus vitamin protocol. Had fertility acupuncture last night and have another one booked end next week.

    Hoping you are all staying safe and well as you cycle in lockdown xx

    Wow Wobbly Tulip you are busy! :) How are you feeling on everything? Thanks so much for the info, have heard amazing things about Dr G, we are a long way from London though and have always been at the same clinic in the south west. I do understand why I am not on it, and that there is no call for me to be, I just feel I am on the bare minimum but know that there isnít an issue with our eggs or spent or anything else, it really is a luck if the draw for us...

    Hope everyone is ok xx

    Hey Dusky - Iím far from London too - in Midlands. Most appointments with Dr G over zoom/ phone so literally only go there for IVIG drips and LIT treatment. They sent prescriptions by post so you can get locally. If you choose not to push further for clexane, suggest take a high dose fish oil such as Bare Biology heart and soul and on bfp add baby aspirin 75mg. Do you know if you have MTHFR? If so youíll need a different form of folic acid (5-MTHF or L-methylfolate) so your body can absorb it. Thatís critical to be able to reduce blood homocysteine levels which if high cause clots.

    What are your clotting issues? Have you had the full thrombophilia panel done including PAI-1 and MTHFR?

    Hey All,
    Iíve been watching this thread for a few weeks... Iím hoping to have EC/ET in February! If all goes to plan, I wonít be testing until March though!

    There are a few names I recognise from previous cycles... some from not all that long ago either.

    A wee bit about me... had IVF in July 2014, resulting in our DD born in Spring 2015... there was one frozen embie that we thawed in Dec 2019 (took us a while to decide)... it was a BFN... we decided pretty quickly that we would take the plunge and try IVF again.. however due to covid, our potential June/July cycle was postponed. I started DR in November, but due to the spray not really working and timings for Christmas, it was delayed until my next period. I am no a week away from starting to DR again, this time with injections. When I think back to 2014, we had our first attempt in March but the same happened with the spray, so I had to change to injections.... but because I DR ok on the spray for the FET, they tried me on it this time. I really donít mind though, Iíve seen it as a kind of dummy run! So roll on 18th, so I can start these injections once again.

    Is there anyone else dating around the same as me?

    Good luck everyone, I hope to get to know everyone as the weeks tick by...,

    Dusky7 and WobblyTulip - Hello ladies! Scan last Thursday went ok and confirmed egg collection for Saturday (yesterday), where 8 eggs were collected and 6 fertilised (IVF)...So let's see how many embryos are gonna reach Day 3 and Day 5 blasto to be frozen ^pray^

    @WobblyTulip I'm doing short protocol, collecting as many eggs as possible then do 1 main transfer at the 3rd cycle with the best one.
    @emilyinthegarden I have the same meds as you!

    @Fyfey I should have my EC/ET in February as well! Good luck to everyone too! xx

    Hi all

    Iíve been following all your posts but awaiting to start my FET at the end of the month so havenít posted much. Itís my one and only frozen embryo so really hoping it works.

    Fyfey I think I will be cycling a similar time to you. Also I think I recognise you from a previous group at the end of last year maybe?

    Hope everyone is getting on ok with the lockdown. I feel like itís been Groundhog Day for quite sometime. Iím actually looking forward to starting my cycle as at least thatís something else to focus on right now.
