Positano how much progesterone are you on? Maybe add a couple more and see if that helps
Can't deny it any longer. Period definitely hit. God we only got back last night. So unfair. Can't understand how everything could be so right and go so wrong.
Perfect embryos, perfect lining, me relaxed.
Just looked at at flights and they are astronomical over the next few weeks. Might make it impossible to get back until Sep.
god how depressing. I feel like I will never get to have such happiness.
Did he check progesterone levels with a blood test before transfer? I was on 1000mg utrogestan per day none of the oral as it doesn't work as well, you maybe sadly one of the ladies that doesn't absorb pessaries or gel very well and it may pay to use pio next time, I would get to your gp asap and see if they can do a progesterone level check to see what it is Also next time before your transfer get them to check your level so progesterone can be adjusted if needed.
Hi Positano, I'm sorry to hear your news. I hope good things come your way soon.
Today I went to the dentist to fix my cracked tooth in preparation for a crown next month and I threw up and panicked got the shakes really bad from the anesthetic. You think I feel happy? I got an anxiety attack was shaking from the adrenalin in the anesthetic for 10 minutes before they proceeded. Tomorrow I go for scan and expect my baby to be dead. There is always stress when it comes to babies, the lady at the dentist said "my daughter is 27 and I still worry". So please, dont panic like me, just realise you have the opportunity to try and try again, its not like our old crappy eggs its good fresh young eggs. Chin up and I hope you dust this off if its not a BFP and try again. I have faith in Dr Nikos, but perhaps you should be on higher dose like me.
Since transfer I've been on 8 progynova a day two four times a day.
I was on and still am on 400 mg progesterone pessaries four times a day, a total of 1600mg a day. One crinone is equal to 200mg, I was told by Kate Dr De Ambrosis' nurse. I did two today for lunch since I was at work, to replace one 400mg pessary, since I'm running low and have a mother load of Crinone. After my bleed Dr Wazza upped my progesterone pessary dose. Also he put me on Provera, but Dr Nikos doesnt like this..so im now weeeing off anyway since the bleed stopped after 2 weeks.
Talk to a Dr here and get a second opinion, it doesnt hurt. Also talk with Dr Nikos too, he might suggest increasing your progesterone, inserting them vaginally is better, but if you are bleeding I would put them in my booty, since they absorb quite well there.
Just dont think its the end of the world, it isnt, theres always next time, and If I'm not successful I'm prepared for it. You should be too, you cant put all your eggs in one basket. This is not a perfect science, its not like putting in a new liver or lung or heart, its more complex and there are so many factors.
I really feel for you and I can hear the sadness in your writing, I'm a bit emotional for you since I truly understand how much it means to you to have a child of your own. Giving up hope and thinking negative wont fix anything, just be optimistic and know that there are other women worse off than you, who have uterine cancer, no uterus, etc etc. We are lucky, we can achieve more than many other poor women who have to turn to surrogacy and adoption. You have the support of all of us here and your partner, I'm alone in this journey and call my mummy like a little girl every day. She is the rock I'm clinging to and i hope that your support network relaxes and keeps you sane. Its helping me just being in this forum sharing and chatting with all of you. We are in the same boat, dreaming hoping and wishing to have a baby. Chin up.
I send you all my love
Oh Positano, So sorry to read your update. Six days post transfer is early days and my old FS did say you can basically have your period and still be pregnant.
Get a BT ASAP and check those progesterone levels. Don't stop any meds until you get a test done.
Sending you big virtual hugs xx
My first DE cycle was not successful only barely a BFP. PM if you need to vent.
Dr Wazza warned me, the grief, sadness & anger is worse when doing a donor cycle. I know the pain of the BFN on my unsuccessful cycles, dam it hurts.
He was dam right about a donor cycle BFN
Good luck for your next scan Yasna. Ive a tooth that needs a crown as well. Dentist told me to wait, I said as long as its not infected or I'm looking like a gap toothed bumpkin. Ill wait, waited this dam long lol
Ive got my scan booked for the weekend, yep freaking out cried all the way home from work. Trying to keep positive barely..
Cherry Ive read such good reviews about New Life and using Ruth. She has followed up with me on many things. Even though she knew that we were not going with the clinic.
The only thing that stopped us, us the double donor aspect, which we ended up not needing. I wanted to tick every box use every option, even tandem cycle as well. So in effect I was doing everything at once. She was kind to me with this type of silly request.
Other clinics that are shonky and dodgy would do it. WTF
