We have just been through our very first IVF cycle. Unfortunately this has failed.
My partner is fine and I have endometriosis (unsure what stage as the hospital lost my notes!!) but they have basically put me in the category of unknown fertility issues due to the fact my notes were lost post lap and dye operation. But that is a whole other story!
I'm currently 12 days post embryo transfer with a grade B blastocyst and a grad B and C in the freezer. We did the egg share scheme in the hope we can help someone else achieve their dream.
On day 8 post transfer I began what I thought was spotting. The following day it was really quite heaving and red blood. I called my clinic and the nurse advised this isn't good. Especially as I had done an early test on day 7 and it was negative. I was advised to keep on with the pessaries and do my official test Sunday as agreed.
Me being me, in my desperate state couldn't help but think maybe there is still a chance and began to go google crazy looking for some hope that my Little Button had survived.
I am currently 12 days post transfer and bleeding so heavy that it's flooding me (sorry tmi!) I have now come to terms with the fact that it has failed and we are devastated.
I had really hoped and prayed that this would work as it's been the best chance of getting pregnant we have had in the 4 1/2 years we've been trying. I was silly to expect it to work but you can't help but be filled with hope that your dream is about to be reality.
Has anyone else come on their period during the 2ww? My clinic advised that my body knew I wasn't pregnant so my period has overridden the pessaries. I'm worried that maybe they didn't prescribe me a high enough dose of progesterone. Even though they say it won't make/keep you pregnant it's just to thicken the lining of the womb.
I am doing as advised and continuing the pessaries but it's so hard when you are bleeding so heavy. It just seems pointless and makes me so upset when I just know in my heart there is no point. I guess I only have 3 more to do now.
I'm really scared that there is something wrong and when I have my frozen embies transferred that it will fail again. I've decided to have an endo scratch and use the glue And have both frozen embryos transferred so long as they are ok in the hope that I have a good chance.
Has anyone had any problems with frozen embryos no longer being viable during the defrosting stages?
Can anyone offer any advice on how to deal with the 2 week wait?
I'm sorry for the long post, just need some hope that this isn't the end for us.
Thanks in advance xx
