That was cycle last year, I got 4 good embryos had a double transfer but bled before test day

I was fine after EC I was up dressed and packed within 2 mins of getting wheeled out and got home and went for a 2 hour walk

I'm in the middle of a cycle now but with donor eggs, my fsh tripled after my first cycle so the clinic wouldn't let us go again

In my second and third cycles I had 3 follicles, got 3 eggs and 3 fertilised. Sadly I've always bled before OTD, although fingers crossed this is our time. So with 5 follies you stand a good chance.  I'm always really sleepy after EC and usually have to wait an hour or two before leaving. You're then advised to take it easy for the rest of the day - I've always just slept. You might feel a bit uncomfortable the next day but I found a hot water bottle helped.
Good luck.
Sara. xx

Hi Mrshol


It's probably due to our age, I'm ten years older than you which means 60 percent of embryos do not turn into viable pregnancies. Sad but true. We are gonna used IMSI next time, it better than ICSI for choosing the best sperm as we have morphology issues. Fun and games. It's so expensive!

Good luck :)

I know. The blast was great, they said it was beautiful. But alas, it wasn't to be. At least I know we are capable of getting a great blast. Third time lucky :)

Best of luck for your test date x
