BFN - what next?

#1 Post by Baby2 » Thu Oct 01, 2020 4:18 am

Hi

I recently had a failed cycle and await to speak to the consultant in a few weeks.

However, I am finding the period is really painful, it’s started and the cramps have been unreal. I guess it’s all the progesterone which has built up the lining and the other drugs all taking their toll.

No one talks about after a BFN how the headaches, from
all the process and emotions leaves you exhausted. The two week wait symptoms are carried well because of the glimmer of hope but once you know it’s not worked the symptoms feel way more painful again.

Has anyone else got any strategies after a BFN? I want to try and get through this period and then book a pamper massage. Body needs it!

Would be great to hear what aftercare you taken after a failed cycle and how to heal the body.

Hi Smudge

Thanks you’re right. I’ve made myself so busy with work and online shopping 😬 as a substitute. Have you used the counselling service before?
