Wondering three things... I feel like there is so much riding on this next transfer I’m trying to research a few things that are niggling away in my “gut feeling”. After 3 early fails at 5-6 weeks I’m scared of a repeat.
Has anyone been given a broad spectrum antibiotic before transfer? I’ve read about that in a few places. All our standard ivf pre tests were negative, but you hear about people having undetected bacterial infections once they have menstrual blood tests, and i see some clinics just give you the antibiotics as standard anyway. I’m thinking of asking my consultant but wanted to hear from all of you!
And also, I’ve been paranoid since I was first diagnosed 2 years ago about my low oestrodiol levels (at the very bottom end of the normal range) and have been reading studies about how in a natural FET, low E2 levels after transfer give a lower pregnancy rate and better E2 levels give better pregnancy outcome. My E2 has never been checked after transfer so wondering if low estrogen might be playing a part in my early losses.
Does anyone know anything about the two above things? Thinking of asking for the antibiotic to be prescribed and for estrogen support after transfer since it’s probably my last ever own egg transfer of my last 3 embies!
