Suggestions post FET transfer


Hi all,

I’ve been a lurker here for a couple of months and this is my first post.

Due to have a day 6 FET on 1st August (first frozen cycle). 2 failed fresh cycles in the past.

I have known about my pcos for 12 years but only got an endo diagnosis this year after a lap for hydrosalpinx.

Just wondering about any suggestions pre and post transfer. I’ve already given up caffeine, alcohol and added sugar. Taking pregnacare and having acupuncture.

I know it’s likely that not much will change things now but it’s good to know I’ve tried my best.

Hi sally9320. Just thought I would add my food plan for pre and post conception, and hope you don't mind.Carbohydrates - Wholegrain bread and wholemeal pasta, oatmeal, brown rice. All fresh vegetables especially raw or steamed. Over boiling rids them of vitamins and minerals, pineapple juice, apricots, potatoes, all fruit and honey, beans, chickpeas and lentils. Protein - Organic meat if possible, poultry, fish, Milk and hard cheese, nuts and seeds. Fat - Extra virgin olive oil and sunflower oil, avocado and peanut butter, mackerel, sardines, nuts (especially Brazil and walnuts), seeds, sweet corn and sweet potatoes. The things to avoid are too much sugar, processed foods, ready meals, butter, ice cream etc. A little is OK, but not all the time. Drink plenty of water and only a little tea and coffee if feeling deprived. Cut right down or right out – alcohol and smoking. Oh and don’t forget the Folic Acid and Vitamin D! Hope this helps and all the best with the FET. Diane

My clinic said - what you do or don’t do during the 2ww is unlikely to change the outcome but to avoid alcohol and strenuous exercise. Don’t read silly blogs about perfume and chemicals etc apart from day of transfer. I asked when it was safe to put deodorant on again and they said as soon as I like after the transfer as it’s protected inside you after that, so don’t fret about your usual cleaning products etc. Also don’t beat yourself over feeling anxious it’s perfectly normal- I have to remind myself not to worry about worrying!

Thanks for the replies ladies. I know I’m kind of clutching at straws but any advice is helpful. I appreciate you taking the time 😊

Hi hunny it’s looks like you’ve done everything you can to help your FET, so i would suggest to be unashamedly selfish, look after yourself, pamper yourself and do whatever you can to stay as stress free as possible x x x

Yeah, I think sometimes it’s hard just to be easy on ourselves. This whole process is looking for ‘the problem’ and you can’t help thinking it’s you. I’ll try and chill and relax and look after myself 💙
