We just had our third failed FET and I cant help but notice that within three to four days of the transfer each time Im already feeling my period cramps beginning. I always hold out hope that these are implantation cramps but this has never been the case. I do generally get cramps for a week prior to periods so perhaps this is to be expected but I cant help but wonder if the timing of our transfers is off.
Some background - Im 36, we had a successful fresh transfer two years ago that resulted in our son. I have mild PCOS. The three FETs have all been with different protocols (simple one with estrogen and progesterone, natural cycle, and most recently a cycle with birth control to start followed by buserilin, estrogen and progesterone.) I assume my doctor will suggest another collection and hopefully fresh transfer but should I ask for other tests? ERA? Looking for endometriosis? Immune tests? Feeling discouraged...Thanks!!
