FET tips and advice



I hope you're all doing well and enjoying the sunshine.

We are due to start our FET medicated cycle - we go up on 1st August for my 21 day scan, and I just wanted to ask how you approached this compared to your fresh cycle. I'm doing the usual, no caffeine, exercise, healthy(ish) eating but any advice you can give would be appreciated.

I can't work out if I'm nervous, excited or calm this time round.... xx

I’m exactly the same!! I’m excited to get started again but also really nervous!!

We have our appointment tomorrow for day 21 injection 😬😬!

I’m not really sure what happens after that but I’m guessing they’ll tell us tomorrow!

Good luck with yours and hope all goes ok xx

Thank you xxx

Good luck to you and @lisaworthy1981 - we are doing FET right now but I’ve asked for it to be as unmedicated as possible as I react to strongly to all the drugs and I want to give my body a chance to feel more like ‘me’ this time! (I did 21 day long protocol last time but they found fluid when they scanned so we had to abandon and have a hysteroscopy). So! This time no down regs, only oestrogen patches to thicken the lining, scan next Monday then (hopefully!) FET, then progesterone (I’m pushing to try Lubion this time as desperate not to do IM progesterone injections again). I’m also feeling very mixed about it all, trying to relax and think that what will be will be, but that doesn’t tend to last haha 😬😬 wishing you both lots of luck and love xx

Oh wow, it sounds like you've had a rough time of it? Glad you're feeling better now and in control again. I think the feeling in control is key isn't it? Good Luck xxx
