Hey All! Just wondering if anybody is cycling now with an October transfer date?

I just did my first Suprefact injection, transfer will be(hopefully) mid-October.

IVF #1:

November 2017 - 23 Follicles, 18 Fertilized, 3 made it to Day 5, FREEZE ALL due to OHSS

FET #1:

January 31, 2018 - Begin Suprefact Nasal Spray(5x/day), baby Aspirin & Folic Acid

March 2, 2018 - Lining Check -> 8.6mm, transfer scheduled for March 8, 2018

March 8, 2018 - Transferred 1 embryo. Continue Prometrium, Estrace, baby Aspirin & Folic Acid

March 16-19, 2018 - HPTs th_abfp.gif 

March 20, 2018 - Beta Test - 115 (according to nurse, they like to see 250-500) Continue with Prometrium, Estrace & Folic Acid. Stop baby Aspirin.

​March 22, 2018 - Beta Test #2 - 332 th_abfp.gif Tentative due date of November 24, 2018. 7 week U/S booked for April 9. Continue Prometrium & Estrace until April 28.

FET #3:

FET #4:

PROTOCOL CHANGES: Will switch to estrogen patches as well as vaginal estrogen. During lining check will test progesterone to make sure I haven't ovulated. Requested a ultrasound the morning of the transfer to make sure everything looks okay.

Sept. 12, 2020 - Begin Suprefact injections, baby aspirin and prenatal/DHA.

CMRivf I was really hoping to transfer our last embryo in October, but my period is almost two weeks late. I have a feeling I'm entering into the peri-menopausal stage and that's why it is late. Before all this IVF nonsense I used to be like clockwork and returned to that after pregnancy, but now I'm starting to have night sweats and my period is late. We are at the end of our journey, and although I want this next chapter to be positive, in one way or another I just want to move on.

 

I notice that you didn't update your FET #2 in your signature. I assume that it was not successful. Why do you take Suprefact at the beginning of your cycles and hence your cycle is so long? It takes me forever to build my lining, so my timing is always 30+ days from cycle day #1 to transfer.

My wife has started her cycle today and this will be our 4th attempt. Transfer will likely be the first week of October. We have one last PGS-tested normal embryo. It's a female day-6 hatched blastocyst. We discussed with our doctor today and the plan this time will be a regular FET. In December 2019, my wife had a regular FET; while the embryos implanted and developed a bit, the cells of the embryos passed out a few weeks after transfer. We still don't know what went wrong. 

 

In August 2020 (yes, last month), our natural FET ended up with an implantation failure and our doctor today said ERA is still not needed at this point. Since my wife was not even pregnant last time and her period just came, our doctor said it's okay to proceed and start a new cycle. We will use a different brand of patches this time, in addition to taking estrace pills. In December 2019, my wife experienced allergy from the patches. This time around, the doctor prescribed us with another brand and he said he will (if needed) prescribe some medications to deal with any potential allergy this time. 

 

Protocol for now is as follows: prenatal vitamins, viagra, and one patch. No progesterone shot yet. Next week, likely two patches + estrace x 3. 

 

For me, I'm not even setting any expectation and just go with the flow. After multiple failed attempts, it's better not to set any expectation.

Returnable - sorry to read about your struggles. I hope you get an answer, either way. It can be so frustrating to have no clear path. We chose to cancel our cycle in March(the day before the transfer) due to Covid. A couple of days later the clinic shut down. I actually cycled again in May/June and my cycle was canceled the day of transfer due to unknown bleeding/cramping in my cervix. Ive had some extra testing done and everything has come back normal so hoping this cycle goes well.

My clinics protocol has me start suprefact on day 21 of my cycle(my cycle is 32 days). Ill get another period and then add in the estrogen and such. I think I usually do about 30 days of injections and my transfer is about 6 days after injections stop.

tsm37 - I hope everything goes smoothly for you this cycle and am sorry to read about your wifes previous cycles. Its so frustrating when the doctors cant tell you where or why the cycle went wrong. I will also be doing estrogen patches(for the first time) and suppositories as well.
