Frozen Embryo Transfer - Starts End of Jan 2017

Hi all, I'm new to the site and this is my first post ... so please bare with me!

Just a quick overview ..

last April we did our first IVF cycle that resulted in 9 eggs being retrieved 7 fertilized but only two survived to Blastocyst, one was transferred but sadly we got a BFN in May. This hit me like a brick ... I honestly thought it was going to work ...... all my checks have come back ok, levels are all normal, tubes are also fine! My husband has antibodies in his sperm, but on day of egg retrieval his sample was perfect!

Anyhow after a few months of the biggest emotional rollercoaster of our lives, we are finally taking the plunge to do our first FET cycle. I'm terrified!

Please could people give me some feedback on what to expect, I believe this is not as stressful on your body as IVF but I just want to emotional prepare myself.

We are due to start treatment at the end of January 2017, and I have my implication appointment on 17th January.

Sending baby dust to everyone ....

  • Me and the wife are going through this too, quite pos doing FET next week. Collection was done on November but things wer but ok hold after getting 4 embies from a similar number of eggs. However due to her having a pylop in the womb, this needed to be removed which was done last month.

    She had started the burselin injections l, which immassusting her with. We tahe it roughly at 10pm every night ( at first the dosage was 0.5 but after scan last week, we had to reduce it to 0.2), she seems to be doing ok but feeling quite tired during the day. My advise would be to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

    We are due to scan again on Friday with, as I say the view if doing FET next week at some point. So when you do have the FET you will be told to have another injection daily to aid the implantation.

    Aswell as this, I believe you will be told to admister medication too.

    Hope that helps, please keep in touch and let us know if we can help with anything else.
