I going through Fet using injections of buserilin but will also start taking oestrogen tablets in a few days time. I need some help with smoking. I stopped the recently started having 1-2 a day but I am struggling to stop this now can anyone help or give some tips. Also does anyone have any success stories from FET and things that they did. This would really help.

Hi amazing78. Oh dear! Would your GP be able to put you on a smoking cessation course?? Would be worth asking. Oh how exciting about your forthcoming FET – obviously you will be anxious too! I think most of my ladies tend to take it easy for a few days after FET, and don’t do any lifting or strenuous exercise. Otherwise, live life as normally as you can while you are waiting to test. A good diet to have at this time consists of variety, however, I have listed some of the “good” things to have: Carbohydrates - Wholegrain bread and wholemeal pasta, oatmeal, brown rice. All fresh vegetables especially raw or steamed. Over boiling rids them of vitamins and minerals, pineapple juice, apricots, potatoes, all fruit and honey, beans, chickpeas and lentils. Protein - Organic meat if possible, poultry, fish, Milk and hard cheese, nuts and seeds. Fat - Extra virgin olive oil and sunflower oil, avocado and peanut butter, mackerel, sardines, nuts (especially Brazil and walnuts), seeds, sweet corn and sweet potatoes. The things to avoid are too much sugar, processed foods, ready meals, butter, ice cream etc. A little is OK, but not all the time. Drink plenty of water and only a little tea and coffee if feeling deprived. Cut right down or right out – alcohol and smoking. Oh and don’t forget the Folic Acid! Hope this helps and all the best with the FET - Oh and I do hear many positive results too! Diane
