We had our first ivf cycle Nov/Dec last year. We had a 5 day transfer but started bleeding 4dp5dt for 5 days. We were devastated but our clinic insisted that we continue progesterone and take a HPT on our OTD.
To our surprise we had a positive on our OTD! Our first ever positive test we were nervous but hopeful. I continued to test with HPT like a crazy women and after a week of positives (some in the afternoon) we started to get our hopes up. I tested on Boxing Day but it turned to a negative. I was heart broken.
I’ve been trying to keep it together as when we went to visit my in laws for New Years my mother in law collapsed and died. I’ve been trying to be strong for my OH.
I was doing ok until I got a summary of our last cycle from my clinic following a follow up.
The letter states that they understand we will be upset following a negative test. No mention of the fact we had positives until 5 weeks. I know it was really early day but now I feel silly for being so upset as they are saying it’s failed cycle and we will go forward with a FET.
I know we are so lucky to have a frozen embryo but now I feel I’m wrong to be as upset as I am over our last cycle.
I have a counselling session on Tuesday which I hope helps.
Would you guys feel upset over the letter?
