Here we go again, FET starts tomorrow

Happy New year all. We have an appointment at the hospital tomorrow to have my injection to start a frozen cycle. We had to have a freeze all cycle last year and now we're starting the next stage of our journey.

This time I'm having the prostap injection, has anyone any experience of this drug and the side effects.

Feeling really nervous this time where as first-time round I was excited. We have two fertilized eggs waiting and just so nervous that they thaw ok and continue to develop.

Wishing everyone a lucky 2018 x

Good luck! x


Thank you x


Hi Vicky, I have had prostap injection 3 times now, most recently last Thursday. The nurse injects it in your bottom and it’s quite stingy . I’ve been feeling very crampy and the last couple of days I’ve had bad headaches. Also feeling emotional / tired. Obviously the effects of what is happening with my hormone levels. In the past these symptoms stopped once I started the stimulation phase injections. However this time we are using donor eggs so I’ll be moving on to take progynova. Don’t know what to expect from then on as it’s all new to me.

I’m nervous too as our donor eggs are frozen and will have to be warmed up. Hoping everything goes well for you. Very best of luck xxx


Thanks for your reply, I've not seen anyone at the clinic since our fresh cycle last year so feel a little unprepared this time. I think my next drug is progynova too so I'm hoping they will subside some of the side effects.

Good luck on your journey. X


All the best. How exciting. Hope all goes well for you. Are you transferring one or two?


No idea yet, I think our clinic has a single transfer policy x


Best of luck. Currently busy with my Frozen cycle too, so understand your nervousness.


Hope your cycle is going well xx


Well that was quickest appointment ever, quick jab in the leg and off. Back again in 2 weeks for a scan x
