I will be doing a natural cycle FET in August hopefully. Miscarried after our first IVF at 10 weeks. Just got AF last Wednesday already (a little early but I won't complain) So hopefully mid August we can pop a frostie in and FX it sticks!

Kristeen ~ Are you doing a medicated FET or natural? Edmonton does medicated because their medicated FET stats aren't very good. Sorry about your miscarraige :( I start sniffing Suprefact on Friday...can't believe it's time to start already.

Nili ~ FX'd for a smooth transfer today! Good luck and let us know how you make out!

Amanda ~ I'm also on a long protocal. Sniffing Suprefact 5x/day plus Asprin, then start Estrace and a transfer in the first couple weeks of August. If all goes according to plan :)

Well I think the medicated stats are higher in Calgary too but because I have very regular periods I was told I was a good candidate. I have been charting for the last 4 years (sigh) and I pretty much O on day 14 every month. From what I understand it's just more convenient for the clinic to have you on a medicated cycle as then they can choose when to do the ET. I will have to drive for an hour everyday for blood work for 5 days or so instead of staying in Calgary that long but once they detect the surge in my blood then I do the transfer 4 days later. After my first IVF and a missed miscarriage which I think happened because of the Prometrium (baby died almost 3 weeks before I miscarried) I don't want that to happen to me again. I figure if this one is a bust I will try the medicated on the next one. Good luck to you and I will have my FX for you!

Hey there ladies. Started Estrace last week and am getting my lining check next week. I recently moved clinics (and embryos) so I'm hoping the new clinic and approach will be fruitful. I think I'll be transferring my embryos on the 19th or 20th if the lining looks good.

Good luck Nili and Angelina. Congrats on being PUPO!

I just had a biopsy/scratch test yesterday. Ouch! Have any of you ladies had one done before an embryo transfer? I'm really hoping it does the trick this time.

Zeukko- how's the Estrace? I start mine in a week or two.


I haven't noticed any side effects other than a discharge like I'm ovulating. No headaches. Perhaps a little tired but I'm teaching summer school so that could do it.

I will join your group to this month for FET. I had a failed IVF in May and will be doing a FET week of July 23. Right now I am on Eustrace 2 pills 3 times a day, anyone else on the same dosage seems so very high?


I'm on 1 2mg pill 3x a day. Started with 4mg a day then 6mg. It reduces down to 4mg with transfer and remains until the beta. I guess the dosage varies accordingly?

I'm on estrace three times per day PLUS twice per day vaginally. So that's 10 mg per day. I think my dose is high!

Nili and Angelina. Wish you the best and I hope your 2ww goes by quickly!
I just had a biopsy/scratch test yesterday. Ouch! Have any of you ladies had one done before an embryo transfer? I'm really hoping it does the trick this time.


I've had the biopsy done twice. It didn't work the first time so I hope it does this time. Not a pleasant experience!

Mind if I join? Waiting for AF to come so I can strat my Estrace. Should be transferring somewhere in August. How many will you ladies transfer? I am doing one as I had a very difficult pregnancy. It would be too dangerous for me or the babies if I were pregnant with twins. I am hopefull but at the same time realist that I might not get so lucky again. I have 6 tries so hopefully one will work. if not, DH and I have agreed to enjoy our little miracle as the doctors said the chances of finding sperm again are slim to none...

Nili, what amazin grade for your embryo, hope it brings luck... Mine are 1 x day5-3bb and 5 x day6-4bb. Not sure which one we will end-up transferring.

Mort not sure but I think I start on 2pills twice a day and increase to 3pills twice a day after a few days

Angelina, good luck with the2ww. If it helps, i had cramping and slight bleeding was certain AF was coming and I was wrong...
