It can all go wrong 😢

So I phoned the clinic this morning, told them about my tests but because I haven’t got a result on a clear blue and just on the strips they’ve said it’s upto us if we go ahead!! Now they tell me they only recommend using clear blue and not just the strips!!

As we only have one embryo frozen we don’t want to risk it!!

I’m now thinking I don’t ovulate on my own!! As I’ve not peaked!

So stressed and had enough already xxx 😢

Yeah think we’re gonna forget this month, I just so annoyed!!

You reckon I can ask for a medicated one instead!! We don’t want to be waiting each month for ovulation if it’s not gonna happen xx

I’m sure you can....my clinic didnt really give me an option as it can be tricky detecting your surge xx

Yeah that’s trouble I’m having!! I’ve been testing since last Sunday thought I got a peak on Friday but nothing on clear blue xx

They should be able to do you a medicated cycle without down regulation if that’s what you want. I liked the certainty of having medication but bear in mind you’re then on medication for three months.

Oh god really! Does it take 3 months of drugs before transfer xx

Reply

No it’s that you have to stay on the drugs for three months after the transfer!

Assuming you get a bfp!

Progesterone (just like with normal ivf, your body doesn’t know to turn the follicle into a progesterone producing gland on a medicated fet, whereas on a natural fet it does) and I also had to take oestrogen and I know many women do after a medicated fet but I don’t know the exact reason for this and why you don’t have to take it after normal ivf.

I never showed on the purple ones. Which ironically are the most expensive, however the pink ones that just how a smiley face I always did, so I always stick with them now. I’d be exactly the same as you not wanting to risk it, try the pink ones next month 👍🏻x

Oh no wish they had stressed the right test to use at the start think you are right to wait until clearer result but get that you must be so fed up right now can your GP do bloods to show ovulation ? Wishing you all the best x
