BFN-looks like we’re out

I started bleeding heavily two days ago and today was my official test day 10 days after day 5 blastocyst transfer. It’s not a surprise but it’s hard. It’s my first cycle and I know lots of other ladies have been through this many times so just hoping to draw on your support and how you managed to get through this. I know the statistics were against us but just hoped it would happen.

We have some frozen embryos and I think we are allowed a frozen cycle on the NHS. I guess I just have to wait to hear from them- anyone have any idea how long it takes in London (hammersmith)?

Sorry to read this, BFNs are tough but in time you will feel stronger again. At my clinic I was able to do a FET after 3 months x

So sorry to hear this, it’s tough but you will get strong again. It just takes time. With my clinic we had to wait 3 months to try again, I think a lot of NHS clinics have this policy.

Sending hugs your way 🤗 xxx

Our first attempt was the hardest emotionally, because even though i knew the odds, i honestly believed it would work first time. Sending you the biggest hugs. I know it’s hard but try not to be too disheartened, only one of my friends (of many people I know personally who have been through IVF) were lucky enough to succeed first time. Most have the heartache of failure in the first round. Also, with the FET I think your body will be much more settled, as you won’t be recovering from egg collection, so you have a good chance! Stay positive & do something nice for yourself this month xx

Really sorry to hear this lovely. It is a process of grief so allow yourself time to be sad and when you can pick yourself back up. Be there for one another. Again- I’m really sorry to hear his and sending you lots of love xxx

I’m sorry it’s really tough. You very lucky to have some Frosties and even if the wait is a couple of months you’ll be on your way soon to trying again.

Take time to heal your body and look after yourself for your second try. 🤗
