Anyone know how long a woman from out of town would need to be in Victoria for FET? Did anyone do endometrial biopsy? As this would entail separate trip, just wanted to know if people think that it is worth it.  


Me: 40

DH: 45

 

Diagnosis: Severe male factor, likely female factor (uterine/immune) and age at this point

 

The short story: 

4 fresh cycles plus one cancelled fresh cycle 

3 FETs plus one cancelled FET

Have a 2 year old son from FET in 2013 when immunotherapy added to protocol with VFC 

Trying for sibling since May 2015

Got pregnant on fresh cycle last year at 39 but ended in miscarriage

Just transferred two blasts Oct 24 from fresh cycle at 40 and was lucky to have two blasts to freeze- this cycle at 40 so far has been way better than my last fresh at 39:)

 

Detailed info re cycles on about me page.

Hi, I am scheduled for a FET end of Feb at VFC. I met with my GP yesterday and I will get a biopsy and ultrasound locally, then fly to Vic for my FET. I think I will stay for 2 weeks. Probably not necessary, but it's a long drive for me and the winter conditions can be stressful. Even if I fly, I still have to drive 3 hrs from the airport to home by myself. Plus, I am making a 'vacation' of it.

TTC since I was 28; Started fertility treatments at 35.

Dx: Male factor, Hashimotos, fibroids

April 2011-13 eggs retrieved: all dead except 1 immature egg that was ICSI'd; no embryos to transfer

Switched from Calgary RFP to VFC

IVF#2: November 2012, donor egg cycle- chemical pregnancy

FET#1: Feb 2013- m/c @ 6 weeks

Sept 2013: Abdominal myomectomy done. Giant fibroids removed with my uterus intact! I love Dr. Allaire!

January 2014: Surrogacy- FET cycle, BFN.

FET#2: May 2014-BFP

May 26 beta=335,  May 28 beta=812, May 30 beta=2004

Thanks ladies.  Just to clarify - does Dr. H need to do lining check or can that be done locally (Calgary)?
