Hi Becs, ahh sorry to hear you've just had a failed FET, great news that you feel ready to get going again though! It definitely feels more stressful when it's your last one in the freezer. I think they made me wait 2/3 cycles before going again when I was in the same situation but they didn't say why.
I was in the same situation and it all worked out perfectly, but I then knew that if we wanted number 2 that I would have to do the full cycle again (and pay for it!!) so we have decided to go for it. Feels very different this time, less pressure because we already have our daughter but more stressful as I have no idea how I am going to cope with the fresh cycle whilst managing a very active toddler! :roll:
Which clinic are you with?

Aww I see. So maybe looking at April /may then. Gives me some time to save up😂😂

I'm. Not with a care clinic.. Im with an I dependant clinic just outside Cardiff.

I've done 4 fresh unsuccessful cycles.. 2 on the NHS and 2 with this clinic and 2 fet. This is my last go

It's More mentally that I dont think I could cope with another egg collection
Plus our ages are a fact. I'm 38 this year and hubby is 43.

I know what you mean about pressure. I'm wondering if I didnt take it as serious as the last one..

Which clinic are you with.

Hi Becs, ahh wow well I think you can definitely say you've given it everything you've got! And sometimes you find the last one is the one that's meant to be! You have to draw the line somewhere and you are super strong to have gone through 4 fresh cycles. I only did one and two FET's last time. We have gone with the access multi-cycle package so I will be doing 2 fresh cycles maximum, all the FET'S are included in the price too so I thought that was quite good. Time is not on our side either as I have just turned 41 so it really is this year or not at all but i like having that end point as it means if we have no joy then it's job done and we will move on with life with the blessing of one little miracle. I think it's more that I want her to have a brother or sister that's close in age than for me too if that makes sense!

Totally get that with wanting to get your little one a sibling. Fingers crossed for both of us.

Hi Becs, bloming hell daughter has had an awful virus so been offline. Hopefully out of the way before I start down regging! AF came last Saturday, early for once so I'll start down regging on the 29th Feb, ahh need to get my drugs sorted now. So expensive, although I shopped around and ASDA were £400 cheaper than Care so going to do that. Did you do a short or long protocol for your FET? Not long till your review now, hope they let you get going asap!

Hi Ire1, welcome!! Is this your first round? Which clinic are you with? x

Morning !!

Yes first round and I am so nervous. I really don’t know what to expect! I have been fine so far and just broke down this week when reality hit what is about to come!

How long do you down reg for? We haven’t been given our protocol yet so I’m not sure which one I will be on, as we are signing papers this month ! I have researched but nothing seems clear!! Are you able to shed some light on the process and timescales etc?
We will be at Care Nottingham I think


Wishing you all the luck in the world!
Xxxx

Hi Ire1, Ahh it is daunting but you are in good hands with Nottingham, I am with them too! It's really hard to say but based on my experience last time a rough outline on long protocol was

Down reg- On day 21 start injections, have a bleed 7-14 days later, a week after that go for a scan at care to check lining is thin and ovaries are quiet

Stimulation- Once down reg confirmed start 2nd lot of injections, go to care after 6 days and 8 days and then everyday or every other day. Total stimulation can be anything from 8-18 days or longer I guess!

Egg collection- When at least one follicle is 18mm you go in for your egg collection (under anaesthetic). Partner does a sample the same day

Updates- They then call everyday to let you know first day how many fertilised and then after that how they are progressing.

Embryo transfer- on day 3 or 5 you will go in for transfer. They aim for day 5 as they will have reached blastocyst by this stage and therefore better chance but if you only have a couple available they won't risk having nothing to go back and will call you in for a 3 day transfer.

Then the dreaded two week wait till you can test!!

The short protocol is mainly used when low antral follicle count is the reason for infertility, where maybe the most amount of eggs available will be around 4. On this one you don't down reg and just start stimulation on day 1 of your period.

Hope that helps a little! x

Oh wow no that’s amazing! That has helped a lot!!

Do they give anything to induce a period as I have really irregular cycles and can go months without one.

How are you doing? Xx
