What happens now?

Well that's our second and final NHS cycle done. Gutted to say it was negative but expected this time as started bleeding 5 days before test day.

On the plus side we have two frozen embies. Last time we had none. Think for us trying our last two frozen is a must buy no idea of costs etc.

Hoping I will get a consultant appointment to discuss our options going forward. 💞

  • I'm sorry Moirgraham, I hope you're looking after yourself. Two frozen embies is really positive. Some NHS hospitals offer free FETs if they were from an NHS cycle so check with your clinic. If not the cost is much lower for an FET and so is the stress on your body. Good luck with your next steps, take care x x x

  • too bad that nothing worked out, but it is not the end though, you have plenty of options and there always going to be someone whom you can as what to do. so, i know that it is hard for you at the moment but I hope that you will find another option!! Good luck

    ps i have managed to find my clinic and start/continue trying to have a baby, so I believe that you can do that too!

  • I'm really sorry to read about this. You must be really disappointed.

    I think it is positive though that you have 2 frozen embies. I get one free go on NHS but they said if I was lucky enough to get any to freeze that the FET would be part of that cycle so I wouldn't have to pay. I don't know if it's the same for you but you could always ask.

    Take care of yourself. xx

  • Sorry to hear that Moira but yes at least you have a couple of embies on ice. Im not sure if its the same over in Glasgow but Im in Dundee but frozen transfers are included in your two cycles. Look after yourself!xx

  • So sorry to hear this moira what a blow.

    fingers crossed that your frozen cycle will be 3rd time lucky! ! We had our final ivf appointment at Glasgow 3 months after our failed icsi but would imagine yours would be quicker. I would just phone them. That's what I did they were happy to answer questions. That's us officially applied for adoption! !!xx

  • I am sorry to hear this. The good thing is that you have 2 embryos to try again. I really hope you get through this set back and move forward.

    I have everything crossed for you. X

  • Hi Moirgraham51. So sorry to hear that your cycle has not worked, and hope you are getting plenty of support. I do have a couple of lists of questions you might like to have a look through before you see your consultant again about frozen embryo transfer. They are too long to add here, but if you email me in confidence to support@fertilityneworkuk.org I will send them to you. I wish you well with whatever you decide. Diane

  • Thanks for all your comments. They are much appreciated. They do help find out more information and help point me in the right direction.

    We do get our frozen embies transferred also if no successful pregnancy so we are not out just yet and pleased about this. Staying positive this time

    That would be great for the questions Diane. I will send you an email direct.

  • Glad you're being so positive moira. It's not easy but two frozen ones is great news. I hope you don't have to wait too long. Take care xx

  • Thanks Katya38. I'm so pleased you have managed to apply for the adoption route already. I thought there was a waiting period in between treatment and applying. So that's fab. It is something I still want to consider regardless of my treatment so I'll be keen to hear how you get on. 💞

  • Yes that's what I thought too. I thought it was a 6 month waiting period but doesn't seem to be. Although preparation groups aren't until April or may so the official assessment can't start until after that. Just waiting for the initial visit from a social worker so it's still early days. Take care xx
