Thanks Neetu 76 .. Your friend's story is very inspiring.
Thanks Cevapa, ya I know your periods just go all over the place once u start all this. That is why Lynn has put me on the pill after I have my period after my bfn so that I don't have to wait over to get my period and she even does a hrt cycle with fet so that ovulation doesn't need to be tracked forever and ever...
A question... Could a hrt medicated fet cycle have effect on the healthy embryo not implanting as my both my earlier pregnancies were with natural cycles... as I had a hrt fet for the first time.. And had a bfn.....I know that Lynn wouldn't do it if it had less success , it's just a thought...
Monash actually have a higher success rate with natural FET but unfortunately as my body is out of whack I have to do hrt. My only take home baby was a hrt so I'm ok with it as I really have no other choice.
Grace1, google the name of the doctor together with 'coronors' 'coronial' a bit grim but should give you something if they have been involved. Google them in general, news articles should pop up too.
Hi @ beta sorry to thread crash - can I ask who your Chinese medicine practitioner was? I too have had terrible issues with my egg quality (starting stim #6 with Lynn in a week, have only ever had one embryo make it to blast!)... So looking for some recommendations... Anyone else who has a great Melb CM person would love to hear also. Thanks x
I went for my first follie scan for this cycle and its a little hmm... touch and go I think. I have 11 follies and 3 seem to be decent sized 11-12mm. The others may catch up as they are around 9mm. Some are far too small. I feel fearful and have a sense of deja vu. So worried my cycle will be cancelled or worse, go to EPU and have nothing to transfer like last time
Another scan on Monday so praying these follies grow over the weekend.
Just a question for more experienced Monash ladies. At MIVF after each progress scan I spoke to my FS and we would devise a plan for the next day or so. Here I had a blood test and scan and armed with ultrasound results, up to level 7 and straight to the nurse - who was not my regular nurse by the way. Then she told me what will happen over the next few days in terms of medications and injections. I don't know if Lynn was consulted or they make decisions based on some guidelines or parameters that are set out? I saw her pretty quickly so I don't think Lynn or my regular nurse was consulted.
Does this seem right to you?
@straycat at my 1st scan all mine were under 9/10mm, but grew over the next few days. So I think yours are tracking well & will continue to grow 😊
And yep that's standard process with Monash hun. I'm pretty sure Lynn gets a copy of your results following your appointment. After my appt with a diff nurse, my usual FN rang me to say that Lynn wanted me to decrese my dose. So they would have consulted with her 😊
If you're still a bit wary tho maybe ring your usual FN for piece of mind? xx
