Hi ladies,

hope you are all doing well and enjoying the good weather (for those based in the UK:) ).

I am 44 yo and planning my second DEFET in September (period cycle starting in September, transfer early October).

Looking for other ladies that go through FET during the same period so that we exchange comments and support each other.

looking forward to have more ladies on board and good luck to everyone . xxx

Hi Efi,
I am also planning a DE FET in early October. Fresh cycle was a chemical pregnancy and the FET in May was a bfn.
I was hoping to cycle this summer as it would be easier to take time off from work but between the airline issues here in Canada and the weather in Europe, I’m glad to wait until fall.
I’m currently working on getting my thyroid numbers below 2 as the specialist thinks this will increase my chances of success.
I look forward to chatting with you!

Hi Birdie75,,
Sorry to hear about your BFN and chemical pregnancy.
Had my first DEFET in May and was also a BFN. Really disappointed. Checking also thyroid in a few days to ensure all in line. My clinic is happy with 2.5 but let’s see.
looking forward to talking to you in the coming months.
Good lucks and wishing you all the best with this cyclr.
Btw which clinic are you with?

Welcome and good luck to all of you!


pattycake - welcome to the thread!

PDream1980 - welcome as well. Hope you find some encouragement and inspiration here to make the leap to DE, but first of all fingers crossed the next OEFET works.

Birdie75 - looking forward to your news.

AFM - Looking to transfer in the September/October cycle. Waiting for per but has been really late this time. Possibly bcs of the previous FET my hormones were a bot messed up bit also quote likely because I had the 4tg dosage of the Moderna vaccine. In any case, started some spotting today so AF on its way. However this has pushed back my plans by almost a week. Sigh…always late when you least want it…

Hi everyone,
I had my first egg collection on Wednesday. Was supposed to have a fresh transfer on Monday but they said my lining was too thin...! Likely need to take oestrogen tabs next cycle before we do FET in September.
Currently waiting for withdrawal bleed to begin...is withdrawal bleed a period?!
Reassuring to know there are others with similar timeline as me and going through the same struggle to get preggers. Ladies, we got this!

Sending you all the good juju!! Xxx :)

Hi I’m in the middle of DEFET now but can’t find an August/September post, mind if I join in? 😃
@pattycake which day of your cycle are you at? Are you doing a natual cycle or down regulating?

Withdrawal bleeding is not period as per se. In a way you stop the drugs and the lining you built is shed. So in theory is a period but not quite… 🤔 …I guess I wasn’t very helpful…😁

Hey,

How are you doing?

No not DE... back in 2018 I had IUI with donor sperm and one of the IUIs was sucessful. This time around, I have had 3 failed IUIs. My consultant suggested that my tubes may have been damaged after my emergency C section in 2019. I decided to go for IVF just incase my tubes were damaged and I have very little sibling sperm left.

I have high AMH levels and have been told that it is better to do FET in a segmented cycle.

Hello everyone! Happy to have found a cycle buddies thread for September!

After 3 failed own egg IVF cycles and 20 failed ovulation induction cycles, we're now doing DE IVF. Our known donor had her egg collection today and 12 (!!!) eggs were collected. We're expecting to freeze day 5 embryos on Tuesday next week and then do a FET cycle starting mid September. I'm so excited I can't wait for the lab to call tomorrow and tell us how many eggs fertilised! :)

Thank you Efi! We just got the call from the embryoligy team - 8 fertilised!!!

I only ever managed to produce 3 eggs during my OE cycles, and got a maximum of 2 fertilised, so these numbers seem absolutely amazing to me. I'm over the moon and scared sh**less at the same time, if that makes sense... :D

Hi, All the Ladies on this channel,

I am also in similar stage of DEFET. Planning transfer for the 23rd Sep, what will be our last DEFET cycle (we had 2 BFN DEFET cycles earlier this year, April and June). We had a fresh DE transfer and have our amazing daughter who is almost two years old now. We also had 3 blastocyst on ice, and the clinic says the cohort of eggs/ blastocyst is good because we already had a live birth.

During the last FET cycle I spontaneously ovulated that potentially interfered with the uterine lining and might have adversely affected the chances of implantation for our 5days old blastocyst. Won't know for sure what the reason is according to the clinic current research shows ladies with previous C-sections have a lower chances of implantation because of scarring?
Currently taking the contraceptive pill to try to regulate my cycle and the Prostap ( leuprorelin) injection scheduled on 26th Aug.

Hope all the preparation is going well for everyone.

Hi everyone, I had my cycle cancelled and have now restarted. Natural cycle. DE FET is on 22nd now. I'm struggling with the estrogen a wee bit-very tired. Really not looking forward to the progesterone as that is v difficult for me-I start that on 17th, 5 days time.
