Hi Ladies. I'm new to the forum and also seeing Dr Lynn.
I have an 11 month old son from a successful first IVF cycle at Monash through Prof Gab Kovacs. That cycle produced the lone blast from 7 eggs/5 fertilised.
Lynn doubled my dose from 150mg Puregon to 300mg Gonal-F.
20 eggs picked up in August, 7 blasts, one B Grade blast transferred - BFN, 6 frozen.
I've just had a FET with a C grade blast transferred this Saturday, not feeling too hopeful, even though the embryologist said that they wouldn't freeze and transfer embryos that they don't think will result in a pregnancy. 60% of the cells survived the thaw.
The rest of my frosties are also C grade.... in everyone's experience is this a bad thing? I really wish I hadn't asked the gradings now.... my little fella was an A grade.
Also, I concur on Lynn's rooms - my nurse at Monash was hunting them down for my natural FET instructions, and I had to chase her as well!! So frustrating.
I also enquired about a scratch, but they didn't get back to me so I decided to go ahead and try a natural FET given I had 6 in the freezer and had been pregnant before.
Another question, with my fresh transfer last month, I got my period early morning at 8dp5dt. I thought this was early, though the nurse did say that it was nothing to worry about. In a normal cycle, my LP is 15 days.
If this cycle is also a BFN, should I go back to see Lynn before contemplating another FET cycle? I also found it a little strange that they didn't do an ultrasound to check my lining before transfer - is this the standard in a natural FET? I am only on progesterone pessaries.
I should also mention that I am 37.5....
Thanks for listening and taking the time to read my long post!
