My FET is roughly $3,500 I think. I assume I get most of that back cos I've hit my safety net...?
I am on Prednisolone also. Can't comment on if it's working, cos I didn't even implant last time lol :-/
Sharlie could you pls pm me so I can join the private facebook group?
Started the 12WBT Monday. I have been starving hungry but it's because I'm getting AF. So far so good though. Hopefully I can keep it up. We are going to look at doing the FET next month. I too will taking the prednisone although I was a little worried about it. It wasn't discussed during my day 21 appointment and the consent and script were sent in the mail with a short note. The fact you have to sign a consent must mean its got some serious side effects. What do you ladies know about it?
Yep it does have side effects listed and it's still kinda in trial stage. I've had zero issues with it. Literally zero. It's benefits well outweigh its risks.
Prednisolone is not meant to help implantation. It is a steroid. It is for women who have immune issue, which means over react immune system that attacks embryo. Prednisolone is used to suppress it. Any of the immune drug is under trial. It seems like FS just gives it out randomly now without obvious reason here. Strange. The side effect that I have is weight gain, water retention, going to toilet more late night. And if you don't know, there is a chance for causing cleft lip. 1 in 1000 in a normal preg. With steroid, the chance increases to 4-6 in 1000. But to some women like me, who have had recurrent miscarriage, the benefit out the risk.
My point about implant is that I haven't actually fallen pregnant yet, therefore can't comment on its ability to keep me pregnant.
I am on it due to my antinuclear antibodies. I also take low dose aspirin.
Hi girls, I'd like to join in if I can? I'm a country patient and head down to Perth for treatment. We are TTC baby #2. DS was conceived after 1 fresh and 3 FET - on the successful cycle we did a HRT cycle and transferred 2 embryos, and was on clexane, prednisone, aspirin, antibiotics, progynova and proluton (progesterone injections). That was the winning recipe so we are sticking with that this time!
This time round we have had a stim cycle with 1 embryo transferred - BFN and then a FET with 2 embryos transferred and another BFN. I have been having endometrial scratch prior to increase chances of implantation.
I have just had a lap/hysteroscopy and no Eno had grown back - had some polyps which we removed. So I'm all good to go again! Started progynova yesterday. Our embryos are day 3 and we have decided at transfer to thaw all 3, grow them to blastocyst and transfer 2 and re freeze the 3rd (if it survives). So hopefully 3rd time lucky!
