For that price is worth giving it a try isn’t it!
Yeah create have a part called ABC where if you meet certain requirement it’s 2750 ish inc meds for one cycle. But yes with it being your last go I agree probably not worth changing again since they know your history! This will be your third try with care is that right? If so.. third time lucky!

Hi, my progesterone results were high enough on one lubion in the morning and one cyclogest at night, so we didn’t need to increase anything. I had my transfer on Thursday and all went - just trying to stay relaxed between now and test date. We shall see how it goes!

Hey ladies how are you doing?

Mss and Kelly hope you are both doing ok

Cheshirekat hope your transfer went well. How are you finding the wait any symptoms?

I have 0 symptoms I think I have them and then I go mad googling everything but the truth is I don’t really have any so I had to come off social media for a while and the internet in general to stop myself going mad!!

It just is so stressful 😩

Hiya, it’s on Sunday but I’m gonna do it Monday morning when I’m back home. I am really tempted to test early but not allowed, more so because It will just help me to come to terms with the answer especially if negative.

It’s really weird cos you feel everything is so intense with stims, collection etc and then after transfer it’s like nothing but waiting 🥹🥹

Re: April/ May 2024 cycle buddies

Mss I know right and even though I’ve put on a bit of weight I’m like ohh it’s fine I could be pregnant after all 🤣 until I’m not and then I’ve gotta deal with that as well as being podgy 🥹

I’ve ordered some test as I’ve had a bit of discharge tmi I’m sorry but I feel like period pains so I’m just gonna do it and then I can just deal with it.

I think it’s great to get your head in the right place, it’s such an emotional rollercoaster and it is quite draining as well..so yeah think pozzy vibes and go for it. I will go again we go the three cycles but only one egg managed to make it t freeze so if that don’t work then I have to do the whole thing including collection again.

How long do you have to wait to do a frozen transfer do you know? I’m assuming you would have 1 or 2 periods before just to get your system back to normal.. who knows 🤷🏽‍♀️

Doing anything nice today/rest of week

Hi ladies,
Good to hear you’re all doing good!
I’ve just been keeping myself busy during the nice weather!
Cheshirekat good to hear your transfer went ahead, take it easy now I’ve fingers crossed for you!

Kay, I’ve heard discharge can be a good sign! I’m definitely going to eat a lot after my transfer, eat and do nothing, taking full advantage of the situation! 😂

MSS perhaps the wait before your review is a good thing as it gives you time to get your head around it, are you in work or have you had a few days off? What is the protocol like for a frozen transfer if you don’t mind me asking? Is there as much medication as a fresh transfer since you don’t need stims? Perhaps we can be frozen transfer buddies this time around since our follow ups are same date

Hey Kelly

Nice to hear from you 😊 how’s things

If this don’t work for me il be doing a frozen too, whenever they say I can. I have heard it’s less meds but don’t know if they change certain ones or if more intense. I only had injections for 9 days so not sure what would happen next. When is your consultation ? Couple of weeks right?

Re: April/ May 2024 cycle buddies

Hi kay discharge and period like pains could be good sign as it all be part of implantation. To be honest when i was with NHS for frozen transferred they advised 3 months before i could start. Care said could do it after the first bleed and consultation but i wanted to wait. As i felt i need my cycle to come back to usual flow and for all the meds that i had were out my system. I read some ladies go in straight away.

Yes frozen transfer is less meds and less intense too.

Glad you’re good Kelly. I wont be doing a frozen transfer im gone go for fresh cycle as the embryo i had left came back with no result i don't want to risk paying for embryo which may not work.

Re: April/ May 2024 cycle buddies

I took test day off but went back to work i need to stay busy which helped me. My protocol changed this time due to my miscarriage last time. My consultant got me start lubion injection at the same time as the pessaries. I also had extra tablet to take for 10 days when i started my periods. They gave me oestradiol patches to change every 3 days.

My first FET i was only on oestradiol tablet, pessaries and lubion injection. Everyone protcol is different. I am looking into acupuncture i think i will start that soon. Wait dew months and then do the egg collection.

Have you guys heard of reflect reflexology I was in two minds to go with instead but think acupuncture will be better for us.

Re: April/ May 2024 cycle buddies

Thanks for the info MSS seems like you getting a good plan in place ☺️ I have had reflexology before and think it’s lovely and relaxing but I would dffo go for acupuncture instead. I’ve had it done before for different reasons and the results have been so good and beneficial so I would be more inclined to go for that

Thanks! 2ww going very slowly. I agree with previous posts that said it’s just like nothing is happening. I’m trying not to symptom spot, but noticed I’m emotional, not sleeping well, constantly hungry and in the mornings I feel a bit icky. I’m not sure if it’s tiredness or something more. Yesterday - 6 days post transfer, 11th day of progesterone - I did notice watery discharge. Internet says it could be progesterone; I’m not spending too much time speculating. Going to London over the weekend to pass the time; it’ll be test day on Monday

For mine, I was on estrogen only (patches every 3 days, and 2 tablets three times a day - but my levels are naturally very very low, so might not be this much for everyone) for about the first 14 days. Scan for endometrial thickness. Then we added progesterone: one Lubion in AM and one cyclongest pessary PM - again, might vary based on what your levels look like when tested after three days. Transfer happened on day 5 of progesterone; med continue as before. I found it really straightforward.

Hope that helps!

Hey, how’s it going? Mine was a big fat fail. I’ve started bleeding today so it hasn’t worked…I officially test tomorrow n have to ring care on Monday..but I’m only doing the test so I can stop the pessaries. I am disappointed but I also believe everything happens for some greater reason.

Cheshirekat I really have fingers crossed for you I think you test on Monday. Sending you lots of pozzy vibes.

As for me once I do my test tomorrow when I get home I’m gonna have a very large cold glass of wine 🍷

How r u doing MSS and Kelly? Hope we’ll xx

Hi, unfortunately it’s a negative for me too. Just goes to show it’s as much chance as it is science. Back to the egg bank once care tells us what our options are.
