Delay FET another cycle??


Hi everyone and thanks in advance for reading.

I had a miscarriage back in mid-July and since then have had quite a bit of mid-cycle bleeding and recently numb arms (I'm going to the GP this week about that). Before the mc I had really regular cycles but my hormones are now all over the place.

I have 8 frozen embryos and am due to start buserelin on 21st Sept but wondering if I should delay until my cycle is more normal. On the one hand, I want to give my body the best chance of success but on the other hand, I know it might take several more months for my body to return to normal. Also I wonder - if the buserelin overrides my hormones anyway, does it matter if my actual hormones are out of whack?

I feel emotionally ready and keen to start the next round but, like I say, want to give myself the best chance.

Does anyone have experience of this? Did you go ahead or wait? Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm so so sorry to hear of your mc in July.

I've not been in the same situation as you but you do sound ready to me. I would speak to consultant and if they are happy for you to start FET then take it from there.

Thank you - it has definitely been a challenging time. It's really hard to speak to the consultant but I might try asking the nurse. X

Bless you I can only imagine.

Yes I would because as you say, you want to be in the best place before continuing. Xx

Good question! I was advised not to start a new cycle until three months after a m/c but that was supposedly due to it being likely to decrease egg numbers. I’m not sure what the impact on a fet would be but think your clinic would definitely be the best people to advise you x

Thank you, Lizzie. X


Hi Bern2015. My ladies used to wait 3 months after a miscarriage before embarking on a FET cycle. You will probably be OK to start the buserelin, but do speak to your clinic for advice if worried at all. Good luck! Diane

Thank you, Diane, I appreciate it. X

Sorry to hear you've been through so much. I hope that your clinic can help and keeping my fingers crossed for you. 8 frosties is amazing and I wish you all the best x
