    @Bongley you might prefer this study in today's news about the benefits of pregnant women eating chocolate. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-02-0...gnancy/7138298
    @Tahli apparently a key finding was about improved blood flow, so might be worth considering chocolate as an alternative to the beetroot juice.

    (Do you remember the woman who was espousing the merits of doing a 'natural/as drug free as possible' CT FET. Yeah, I'm not sure where she went either?!)
    @Tahli There's nothing natural about any of this is there really. Next time one of my mates gets pregnant naturally I'm not going to hold back, I'm going to kick her right in the shins. GRR. With pointy shoes!

    I was trying to concentrate on something my work colleague was saying today and I just couldn't follow him. Us ladies really do have the sh!tty end of the stick trying to deal with it all on top of other things.

    We were told this. Made me happy - DH is 7 years younger than me, so was 34 year old sperm with my old 41 year old eggs!

    I wanted to weigh in on the topic of perfumes etc at epu & ET. My first FS was very specific with not wearing anything like that. Was told to shower only & come in fresh.
    With second FS, same for EPU, as I believe it's a surgical procedure, and that pretty common. But he does ET just in his room where you are always scanned - it has a little lab off of it. So not even a sterile environment really (not like a theatre). But it worked for us. I just did the same for transfer though, so shower & no smelly stuff 😊

    Dr M's Immune Girls - I've just received Dr M and LB's wad of prescriptions in the mail. Dr M has added Oripro Progesterone Pessaries without chatting to me about it. Does any-one know how Oripro differs from Gestone or Crinone. I'm most happy to inject Gestone. No messiness. But don't know if Oripro does something different? @Chiefsgirl @JulieMalooley Can you please help me?
    PS: @Charlie74 I've just noticed that you asked the same question 2 weeks ago and @Gagingi and @Petal40 helped to answer it. My progesterone levels have always been fine on Gestone and I have heaps of Crinone left...and Crinone is so bl~~dy expensive. So I'm wondering whether a shot of Gestone and a Crinone pessary at bed time might do the job?? @JulieMalooley what did you do b/c you would have been using Gestone too?

    Also, for those of you who have done the Estraderm patches every second day, I don't know how many boxes of 8 to ask my pharmacist for. I obviously start them on CD1 but do I stop them once I start the Progesterone? You don't continue on them post embryo transfer do you??

    Thanks heaps @Charlie74. Nope, the PBS box isn't ticked. I just don't understand if Oripro has something different in it to Crinone. And is taking 2 x 90mgs of Crinone the equivalent of 200mgs of Oripro?
    Like you, I have so much Crinone already, as I bought it 'cheaply' in CT. So if I'm going to have to use some gooey stuff as well as the Gestone I'd rather use up my Crinone supply.

    I guess I have a set transfer date so it makes it a bit easier to forward plan how many boxes and bottles I need of things! Plus my local chemist has to order them in so I need to be a bit prepared ahead of time.
    My CT instructions say to use Estradot but LB has prescribed Estraderm. The chemist just confirmed that yes, they are in fact different products. K said she'd never seen your patches prescribed before so I'm stuck with Estraderm but I'm happy enough to give it a whirl. If you have phenomenal success on them I'll be around at your house for leftovers quicker than you can say "10mm lining"!!!
    If you can at least get to 6mm on your next scan those headaches will be worth it hun. xx
