    Hi ladies just some advice I'm about to start another cycle and my fs has recommended stim cycle and freeze then endio scratch and fet. I'm wondering if I should ask for the scratch before stim cycle and put back fresh. We don't get many embies so concerned about freezing then doing a fet? What do you ladies think?

    @midnite01 Yep, I'd do the scratch Luv and transfer a fresh one just in case, for whatever reason, you don't get any frosties (do you usually get frosties??). You can always do another scratch for the FET if needs be.

    The only thing is the scratch is usually done on CD21 of the Cycle before transfer (whether fresh/frozen) so not sure if you'd have enough time to have it done in order to receive the maximum benefits???

    I've heard that sometimes FET is better as it gives your body a rest. But saying that I would prefer a fresh transfer to reduce any risk of damage during a freeze.

    I'm not aware of what a scratch is though so sorry I can't help you there.

    Thanks luv I have day 1 today so might ring the clinic and get their thoughts. We normally don't get frosties hence my hesitation. Otherwise could we do stim then do scratch on day 21 then transfer following month on day 14 or whatever. We are lucky if we get 2 embies.

    And sometimes trying something different is the recipe change you need to make it work!

    Midnite.... I'd go for fresh, especially if you don't usually get frosties. It would depend on how the actual cycle goes, but I'm surprised that your FS is planning freezing all, rather than waiting to see how you respond.

    Luckme1.... a scratch is when they slightly scratch inside the uterus (almost like a pap smear). What it's meant to do, is by making a little raw spot in the uterus, the uterus works hard to repair and this stimulates the area. I had it done a number of times in the latter cycles, but didn't have it done on the lucky last cycle #13 which turned out to be my BFP, so go figure :-))

    Looks like I'm out. BT this morning, but POAS on the weekend and was a definite BFN. Have to work today so just needed to prepare for the call. I thought I was dealing with it ok yesterday, but to be honest, today I just want to crawl up in bed & cry. Found out yesterday another friend is pregnant, that's 3 of our close friends expecting atm, so doesn't really help my feelings of failure.

    @Petal40 I'm so sorry Luv, I really am

    You're not a failure!!! I can understand why you'd feel that way especially seeing close friends around you conceiving easily But that's just it Luv. They can conceive easily (I'm assuming none of them needed ART to help). It's not your fault that you can't, it's just the shizzy cards that have been dealt unfortunately

    @Corbes If it results in better quality eggs (and embryo's), then it's probably worth losing a few follicles I reckon!!

    Mind you, it's still early days, so you never know what can happen for good E2 levels Luv!!!
