Round 2 - Terrified

So I started progynova today for Round 2 - our first frozen cycle after a failed fresh in Sept!! Terrified - mainly of the emotional rollercoaster again, I’ll turn 40 during this cycle and I think that’s just adding to my anxiety!!

Any tips from you lovely ladies that have been through a frozen round would be great! I’ve heard about pomegranate juice & beetroot before transfer, anything else?!

Wishing you all the best of luck whatever stage you’re at!! 🤞🏻 xx

Good luck on your cycle x

Hello there, I had a FET last month after a chemical pregnancy with my first fresh cycle. OTD is tomorrow eek? And I haven’t been able to bring myself to Test early. Second time around I took things more easy, I took the week off work after transfer. I drank pomegranate juice, ate fresh pineapple including the core and lots of nuts especially Brazil nuts. I also gave up alcohol after the first cycle and gave up caffeine after the FET. Don’t know whether any of these things have worked yet! I did find it harder emotionally going through the FET, although it was easier in the sense that I knew what was coming. All the best. Try and relax although easier said than done.

Yes I’m also taking some time of after transfer - my work is stressful and I don’t want that added pressure!! Did you do the pomegranate juice just up to the transfer? xx

Wishing you lots and lots of luck. I’m starting progynova this morning as I’m using donor eggs in my treatment this time round. Never been through this particular process before so I’ll be looking for some tips too. I am feeling excitement and terror in fairly equal measures. Looking forward to hearing how you are getting on xx

Thank you so much, likewise this is my first frozen so I’ve not been through this or used progynova etc!!

That’s exactly how I’m feeling, although swaying more towards fear of it not working again!!

Wishing you the very best of luck and hoping you get your bfp!! xx

Keep your feet and tummy warm. I also took vitamin E capsules from superdrug too which is suppose to help thicken the lining but if you've never had lining issues before then I wouldnt worry too much. Hopefully the progynova will do as its meant to. Best of luck!xx

Yes I bought thermal socks. My doc also advised me to take vitamin D.

Thank you, I’ve been taking pregnacare which has vitamin E in it but I wonder should I be taking extra? My lining got to just over 7 for the fresh cycle but I’ve not done a frozen round before!!

Wishing you the very best of luck also!! xx

Oh Im sure not how much is in pregnacare! I was taking the 800ug capsules from Superdrug. Well fingers crossed. They can up your progynova if need be too!xx

Oh thank you, I’ll check how much is in it!! I have my scan on 19th so hopefully they won’t need to but guessing that’s when they’ll check if progynova needs increased!! xx
