I was told not to use my pessary before transfer.  I had to take mine straight after transfer. Prob best to check with the hospital in the morning. Good luck x x

Our clinic recommends taking as normal. It also helps with transfer because they can't use jelly as a lubricant. GOOD LUCK!

My clinic advised me not to take the pessaries the morning of the transfer. I forgot but when I arrived they told me it's not an issue as your lady bits are washed prior to the transfer x

I was told not to take the pessary morning of transfer but to take after. I think it depends on the clinic. Hope transfer goes well x

Thank you for all your replies.

Been for my embryo transfer this morning after having my pessary this morning. Apparently this was not a problem, as they clean the cervix beforehand anyway.

Good luck poppy83! When do you test? x

29 April. trying to decide whether to go back to work next week. The hospital have said I can go back next week, even though I have a sick note for two weeks.  The thought of being at home for two weeks does not appeal ha ha.

I see you've had a three day transfer. I have also. 

Fingers crossed X

I am off till after test (25th) but already more than a week down as last week was all treatment. So just next week to do which doesn't seem so bad (remind me I said that when I post next week that I'm losing my mind lol). Lots of love and luck to you xx

I'm feeling quite calm at the moment, although I imagine the tension will grow over the coming weeks ha ha 

Wishing you all the best too x
