Egg collection booked for Friday

Hi everyone, I went for a scan this morning after 15 days of stims and I am finally ready for EC this Friday 😱😊 They also took some blood to check my progesterone levels as some of the follicles are quite large. They said the level will determine if they freeze them or do a fresh transfer. Is this normal to get progesterone levels checked at this stage as I think they are saying I'm quite late in my cycle but actually I have long cycles usually so normally ovulate around day 20. Keep trying to remind them but I guess they see a lot of different ladies and have the standard set timelines that they work to.

Any advice is much appreciated! Xx

Hi Bluebelle1. Just wanted to wish you well, and you can get a fresh transfer. Try not to worry if they do have to freeze your embies, as they will be quite safe, and I'm sure you will soon get prepped for a FET asap. Good luck and I will be thinking of you. Diane

Thank you Diane. I have been told my progesterone was low so they will be going ahead with fresh transfer so that's exciting :) x

I was white with panic and no food or morning cuppa, I felt ill but the first thing I said after I woke is I'd do it all again if I had too, it's not as bad, the meds are very good, I was asleep within seconds I had discomfort but they just keep topping you up, I had the lot lol just take time off to recover and rest, wishing you all the best for tmoro xx
