Hi everyone!

I had a freeze all cycle in October (OHSS) and was getting ready to do an FET in January... but apparently, you can't do an FET if you're already pregnant. Yes, after 3 years TTC, 7 cycles of clomid, a 22 wk pregnancy cut short,  3 IUIs and one egg retrieval, i got pregnant on my own! I thought it was impossible between my PCOS, leuteal phase defect and DH's morphology (2.5%). But here i am 6w2d pregnant, having conceived naturally after my freeze all cycle. 

 

i wish you all best of luck. 

 

xoxo

Kadina that is amazing! Congratulations!!

Snootypup - had RFP called you back since calling in your day1? They explained it to me that once you call in day 1 and they offer treatment, you'll start your meds on CD21. You'll have a period in there and then appx two wks after that period you'll be setup for transfer.

I hopefully am not too far behind you! I am expecting AF to arrive next wk. was anyone late their first real AF after a failed IVF? Or after ER? Not the initial bleed, AF #2 I guess after.

Wishful09 - After my first FET was just a negative, my body stayed normal. AF was when it should of been. I think my AF was late this month because my body was going back to normal after my biopsy in October.

Wishful- On Tuesday I called in my first CD1 since failed cycle and I meet with the Dr on Monday so I hope they tell me to start this CD21 😊

Also, AF after failed cycle came right on time as usual

Hello ladies

I'm hoping I will be joining you in January if there are no set backs. We were supposed to do our first transfer (finally) in December but my ovaries are crazy and my estrogen levels were elevated so we had to cancel. We decided to switch from the Lupron protocol to a natural FET since I have regular cycles I am hoping there won't be any further set backs. I am not sure when my next AF will be as I was on Lupron and BCP earlier this month (had a period after stopping meds) but hoping to get the show on the road in early January.

Best of luck to everyone :)

I'm wondering if anyone would share with me what your protocol for FET is going to be and how you made the decision to go with that protocol?

I am trying to decide between a long protocol using birth control, lupron, estrace and progesterone oil or a natural cycle. Two totally different options right?!

Also, opinions on progesterone oil vs suppositories....

Thanks!

My protocol is pretty basic, start suprefact on CD21 then call in next period approx 10 days after around 5th January then January 10th start estrogen and progesterone. January 23rd ultrasound then hopefully January 27th transfer.

I questioned the use of progesterone in oil and he said if I want to spend a lot more and have a sore butt then he would prescribe it for me but studies show neither one is more or less effective than the other so I decided to stay with the suppositories even though they are gross and messy

The protocol I follow is basically the same. I start Suprefact and ASA ( aspirin ) on Day 21. Then I call in my Day 1 usually a little over a week ( could be up to 14 days ) after starting suprefact. On day 3 I add Estrace, gradually increasing my dosage for around 14 days until I have my ultrasound. If my ultrasound is good I stop suprefact  and add Crinone until my transfer. 

 

I personally don't want to do any injections ever again. I will if I have to do IVF again, but I am okay with just sticking with the suppositories. Still very messy though and it is best to clean out the crinone once in a while. I followed the above protocol with my last FET and it was my only successful transfer so far. I've never really thought about doing this any other way. I am very regular and have no known issues, but I like the control there is by doing this the medicated way.

Kadina that is amazing! Congratulations!!

Snootypup - had RFP called you back since calling in your day1? They explained it to me that once you call in day 1 and they offer treatment, you'll start your meds on CD21. You'll have a period in there and then appx two wks after that period you'll be setup for transfer.

I hopefully am not too far behind you! I am expecting AF to arrive next wk. was anyone late their first real AF after a failed IVF? Or after ER? Not the initial bleed, AF #2 I guess after.

Wishful 09 - I am waiting for second period since my failed IVF ( I think it may have been a chemical).  My cycle was over 40 days last month and I am on day 32 this month - My Dr.  said that this can happen after everything :-)  I am hoping to do FET in February!

My protocol may be a bit different. I have POF so don't get AF without medications because I don't ovulate.
I was suppose to transfer this past weekend but lining was no good. So I induced with provera and called in my day 1 last week. They want me to do an ultrasound on Monday (I think to confirm lining is thin and no polyps) then will do estrogen patches rather than pills hopefully starting Monday or Tuesday.
Then 13 days after that they will do lining check start PIO and transfer 5 days later. I have 3 day 3 embryos left (all6-7 cell). They are going to grow them to day 5 and transfer the best two (praying we get two blasts on day 5).

Vicchick - hope this is the protocol for you. Are you doing an endo biopsy? Initially my RE was going to have me go for one (for therapeutic purposes, ie "endo scratch") but with the holidays etc I don't think I will be getting one and apparently he doesn't normally do one with the modified natural protocol.

 

Are you going on BCP first?

 

Is your RE having you do the Matris test at Trio?

Hopefulrealist - what is the matris test? No endo biopsy (scratch) ... he said there is no research indicating that results in higher positives. Who is your RE? I'm with dr. Nayot. Yes, I'll be doing BCP! Lupron, estrogen and progesterone...not looking forward to all the meds again!

When do you think your transfer will be?

I'm with Dr. Cadesky. 

 

If all goes well I should be transferring around 17-20th or so of January, BUT I have realized that there are no guarantees. Thankfully my ovultation just happened for this month so the time should work out. Did you know that the lab is closed until Jan 16??

 

The Matris is also an add on with no good data backing it. I am not sure if I will go for it or not, it sort of depends on how it works with my work schedule, if it's not convenient I will likely decline it. It's basically just a more detailed ultrasound that spits out a score that in theory is supposed to be associated with higher chance of implantation with higher scores. I have not seen any literature to support this and its a pain in the *** for me to go downtown to do it so unless it falls on a day I have off I will decline.
