FET cycle cancelled

Morning ladies

So unfortunately yesterday I had my cycle cancelled. Day 12 lining was 6.6mm then Day 14 7.2mm

Then yesterday (d17) I went for the scan and at first the fertility nurse said my lining was 10.4mm - yay! But then she rescanned and said she made a mistake and wasn’t sure and thought it was 6mm. Anyway long story short, took several scans and the clinical team reviewed together and settled on 6.6mm. So cancelled the cycle.

I totally understand that it’s not worth risking a precious embryo when the womb isn’t ideal. I’ve got my head around that. And my consultant will give me a new drug protocol which will hopefully be better.

But I have to wait until January now 😢. And my EC was at the end of summer so just feels so long, especially after having had to wait because of COVID and the first lockdown after my previous failed cycle.

And to top it off in the same sentence as telling me they were cancelling my cycle I was also informed that I now need to pay additional fees to cover all the scans - which would have been included if they were going ahead.

Just rubbish 😢

Anyway nothing I can do now. I’m going to start a pre-Christmas detox as my body feels horrible after the progynova, then have a few Christmas indulgences and start January again

Thanks for all your support xx

The exact same thing happened to me my lining never got past 6.6mm it’s meant to be 7mm or over in my clinic ! I was gutted 😞 my next cycle I used stim drugs and it got to 10mm or something and was a short protocol and I’m currently 7.5 weeks so for me it was worth the wait, I agree have a nice Xmas and new year there is other ways to make your lining thick so don’t worry about that it’s amazing what they can do 🥰 hope your ok x

Thanks Cmc and massive congratulations to you. When I've used stims previously (although not for a FET) my lining has been good so maybe that is the way forward. I have a video consultation next week so will know the situation then. Best of luck to you and your precious cargo xx

Thanks Daisy1245- hopefully it will be last indulgence for a while. Although it's been about 4 Christmas's now I've thought that lol!! Hope you're doing ok xx

So sort to hear this. My nurse said my lining was good and it was only 7.34mm on day 12 scan, and I went ahead. So confusing why clinics use different thresholds. At least you've got your embryo saved for another go🎉so I'm sure you'll have the best chance x

Thanks Orange flowers and congratulations on your positive tests. Keeping everything crossed for you. We're the same age so it's great to read success stories. 💕

So sorry to hear it’s been cancelled and the extra costs that your about to have to pay just after Christmas, but like you say if it’s not ideal maybe it’s better to wait and give your self a better chance, which is obviously much easier said then done! I hope it all goes well in January and enjoy treating yourself till then! Look after yourself ❤️

Thank you Ashalez. I must admit I'm already feeling better just detoxing after the meds. But yes have all the vitamins and juices and teas lined up and ready to go again. 12mm is amazing!

Will do xxxx

I’m really sorry, this is truly annoying. What’s the reason for the lining to goes from 7.2 to 6.6?? I hope you start again right after new year and this time you get a great lining , great transfer and your BFP. Xx

Thank you Linda. I can only guess that my lining didn't actually grow beyond 6.6mm and that the higher measurements of 7.2 and then briefly 10.4mm was down to human error. It just shows how subjective the whole process is. But still, I do believe everything happens for a reason and next time I'm going to get my lining much thicker!!! 😂🙏🏻

I am so sorry to hear this. But i am wishing you the best of luck for the new year 💗

Thank you Frankie 😘

So sorry lovely. So sad and frustrating when there are further delays, especially if it also results in additional cost! But so glad they're waiting to give them the best chance and wishing you lots of luck and love for the next cycle when they do go back xx

Thank you lovely 😘. Yes better to wait and give my precious embryos the best chance possible. I really don't want to go through another EC so need to be as careful as possible with the three embryos I have in the freezer xx

This sucks. Really sorry that it's been cancelled. Even "understanding" why doesn't help when we all wanted to be pregnant yesterday/ages ago. Wishing you the strength to get through this and to January. Indulge over Christmas, and then back in the saddle again. Lots of love xxx
