    @leyshoja, regarding the Clexane:

    I only started mine 6 days prior to transfer.

    I have no idea why though - I am just placing my trust in the Doctor's hands and hoping that they know what they're doing!

    I guess everyone's circumstances are unique - I was not prescribed any luteal phase support despite everyone here suggesting it would be a good idea, and despite me asking (very forcefully) to have it.

    When I queried why I wasn't getting any, my Doctor just said "Try not to compare yourself to others. You're not getting luteal phase support because your body does not need it."

    It's hard, isn't it, to give up all your control. It's something that I struggle with anyway.....

    Krysta are you doing a natural cycle? Ie allowing your body to ovulate then transferring 5 days post ovulation? Or are you on synarel so no ovulation? If you don't ovulate your body will not produce progesterone. If you do ovulate then yes in theory you should not need progesterone support.

    Hi leyshoja,

    Yes, i think that's what has occurred. I got my period, then did a low dose Clomid for 5 days, then had an ultrasound (follicle tracking scan?) and was given a shot of Ovidrel to force ovulation. I AM able to ovulate on my own, but my cycle is crazy (some months 28 days, some 38!) so they wanted to know exactly when that occurred, as opposed to completely missing the event like i did last month!

    So I had my 5 day old frozen blasto transferred in 7 days after the Ovidrel - on what i can gather is a fairly natural cycle. No synarol, no gonal, none of that.

    So does that sounds right? They say from their observations that my uterine lining has thickened up nicely of it's own accord in each of the last 2 months.....

    Krysta.

    You sound similar to me I'm just doing what I'm told, ha ha!

    I too was advised that my Clexane use would depend on what happened in the next 2 weeks. I take one shot a day until such time that i (hopefully never) see a negative result on my BT. If it comes up positive though, I have been advised i will be having the joy of my daily injection for 3+ months.

    Whatever. ALL TOO HAPPY TO DO IT if I end up with a little babe in my arms

    I started clexane 2 weeks before transfer so I think you should be fine @leyshoja.

    Dr m has told me I'll probably be on clexane right through to just before birth as my nk cells can flare at anytime, but most likely in the last trimester and if they do it will attack the placenta so it's important to keep the blood flow through to the baby.

    I have a nice new HUGE bruise from the clexane jab on Thursday nite, must have rushed it, but it's about the size of a kiwi fruit, frigging huge😁

    The Clexane can be a real pain sometimes. My bruising is not too bad this time round (I have learned how to administer the shots myself, rather than getting my hubby to do them for me) but I do have a marble-like lump at one of the injection sites which is quite...tender. I must have been a bit over-enthusiastic that day! I am just going to avoid that side for a few days and let it settle down

    You can also try icing up the area with a bag of frozen peas or an ice brick etc wrapped in a tea towel for 3-5 mins prior to injecting the Clexane.

    I found it took the sting out of it for me & minimised the bruising too😊

    I've tried icing before I found it doesn't really help me. I'm normally pretty good with it now, I've found if you put the needle in a little and it stings, find another spot where it doesn't hurt and I don't generally bruise. I think it's just because I was tired and rushing the other night.

    Dr m had me on l'cartinine and l'arginine when I was cycling with my own eggs, I also took mitochondrial optimiser with bio pqq, dhea and the list goes on!
