Hi ascuteaspushkin and atlanticrn! Im so happy to get some replies on this post. I apologize I didnt reply sooner, for some reason the notifications were going to my junk folder and Im just seeing them today.
Ascuteaspushkin - how are you making out on the suprefact? I start mine next Tuesday and am kind of nervous about taking it. Ive heard some women get awful headaches from it, and Ill have to sneak around work to take it as we keep our cycles pretty private. Thats great that you got 6 embryos from your IVF cycle! Will you be transferring one or two? OHSS
is definitely no fun. I was a high risk as well, and also ended up in the hospital. My symptoms got significantly worse once the embryo implanted, but things worked out in the end so we feel very blessed for that. I think if we did it again though I would opt for a freeze all cycle to try to avoid as severe OHSS
Atlanticrn - Im so sorry your FET
didnt work out. Do you mind me asking if you have any more embryos to try again? Do you know your plans going forward? This has been a great platform for me to find support and people to talk to while going through this. We have kept everything about our fertility treatments private, so its great to have this space and meet others who can relate to what youre going through. Im always here for a chat if anyone needs someone to listen
