@Katt Easter is a heartbeat away ....the next few weeks will fly for u so u can progress to the next stage ! Won't b long and the time will come by
I have 11 frozen at my clinic so yayyy! Not bad for a first timer I guess 😊
Ever1013.....I believe u put a . with no commentary ? Are u ok ?
@Hopeful wow you have 11 frozen wow so jealous. I have 6 day 2s so obviously i will lose a few but they are all i have i can't do another full stim cycle cause of where my ovaries are so all my hope is in my frozen 6 from 7 years ago 😔
Thank you Hopeful! I am ok. Sorry Ladies, I started to type then got distracted and meant to come back. I haven't been on BH for a while and it has been over 2 years since my successful IVF cycle that gave me my DD. I am so grateful every day to Westmead. So, I have a question and I was hoping someone could help. I am booked in for a natural FET next week and I have a script for progesterone pessaries. The script (from Dr Fong) says 400mg twice a day from day of transfer. My FET is booked for 12pm. Do I use a pessary on the morning of my FET? And also I am having trouble finding a chemist that can order 400mg pessaries. I have called 4 pharmacies who say they can only get up to 200mg tubes. Is this a high dose or normal? I am confused and I am totally feeling like a new kid!

@Ever1013 .....yipeeeee for a transfer next week sweety !!! All the best !
Sorry I have never taken pessaries before but I believe if It was advised to use twice a day from "day of transfer" then definitely be taking the pessary in the early am before transfer . I'd say around 6am . Pessaries are absorbed quite quickly from what I have heard . If it was requested to take "after transfer " then u would be taking the first dose in the evening but from what u have said Ashley advised u ....I would be doing first one on the morning of my transfer ....you can always double check via a quick email to them . They respond quite quickly and then u can rest ur mind !
I found a link on google for u of this topic .hope it helps somehow.
Lol I think the link was "not suitable" for the chat hahaha... I see asterix to block a word out !!!
Well I googled "should pessaries be used on the day of a transfer" and clicked the first link !
All the best ....
You'll need to find a compounding chemist to make your 400mg pessaries. Regular chemists only sell up to 200mg. I use Kingswood Compounding Pharmacy for mine, they are lovely there.
I always start mine on the morning of transfer.
Thanks Hopeful and MrsJag for the helpful info. I really appreciate it. I managed to find a compounding pharmacy and I pick up my progesterone Monday.
Welcome Ange! I have not used Pregnyl sorry. I would be asking Dr Lok for a rough timeline for a cycle. So you can get a roundabout idea of when your appointments would fall. I would also be asking him about the meds that would be involved in your protocol, any side effects etc. Best of luck!
