I'm writing this partially for advice/your experiences and partially just to vent a little!
I was very lucky and gave birth to my daughter after a successful IVF round 6 months ago. For many reasons, my husband and I would like to space our children close together. We only have one frozen embryo, so in the event it doesn't thaw or isn't transferred successfully, it may take a while for us to conceive again.
My cycles have returned so I contacted my fertility specialist and asked when would the earliest time we could consider a FET be... I was thinking of doing one when my daughter was around ten months.
He said when my daughter is 18 months he'll consider it even though I had a very healthy pregnancy and vaginal delivery. This is very frustrating to me as other couples with no fertility issues are able to space their children however they choose (or at least try to). So basically I have no rights to decide what happens to my own frozen embryo? Is their some kind of policy at IVF Australia that dictates that a mother has to be x amount of months post partum to do a FET? Or should I consider changing doctors??
Maybe I'm just being silly and should listen to my doctors advice but I'd like to hear others experiences! Thank you!
