@Tahli i thought that gestone and crinone provide slow release of progest whereas pecessaries the levels go up and down.
Wazza had me on Nirodur patches & Trental tablets which I think do a similar thing. I was on half a patch overnight applied to the top of my foot. I had blinding, agonizing headaches on the patches, so Wazza put me on Mersyndol at night to try & offset the pain. Apparently quite a few people get headaches initially & they go away after a few days. I had to be unique & they never went away - but only while patch was on, not all day :-)
Evening all. For those that have used pregnyl for trigger and LP support did you get symptoms including loss of appetite, vivid dreams, constipation and cramping? I'm feeling really uncomfortable tonight but not sure if it's transfer related or pregnyl related. It's definitely not the norm for me.
The pessaries I used from the compounding pharmacy were great, no clean out necessary and no cervix irritation as you can get with some. Some of the ladies in my immune group use them in the back passage, no need to lie down then, especially handy if you're on 3x per day😳
Caesardust I get most of those apart from loss of appetite! opposite past couple of days. ha. I get the dreams from the progesterone I think as I've had that since taking it.
I experienced cramping after transfer once & at 10dpo (7dpt3dt) in the lead up to my BFFP. That cramping was almost identical to AF cramping.
Everything you've described sounds like it could be side effects.
@Caesardust On Pregnyl I get all the normal morning sickness type symptoms but I'm super sensitive to hcg. I hope you start to feel better soon...or not!!
@Charlie74 I hear you. I'm really worried about how I'm going to effectively and nicely parent an active, challenging and at times boisterous 4y/o while I'm on all the extra meds this time. Synarel (evil spray) turn me into a pretty crabby mummy as it is.
Uhm, I'm slightly confused re the patches. I just presumed, stupidly, that they stayed on the whole time...and then you change them every second day. Do you only leave them on for a certain amount of hours and then repeat two days later? Apologies for the numpty question!
CFC finally confirmed lastnight they're happy for me to go ahead with the 11 March transfer without the HyCoSy, even though I've had the hysteroscopy. They made it crystal clear that if this transfer fails then I'll need to have the HyCoSy done before transferring any more embryos. I have just now explained to them the efforts I went to try and get a HyCoSy done under a GA.
Remember when I couldn't quite decide what to do with my last 3 embryos. I'm thinking I'll ask for two embryos to be thawed and if one is looking sub standard then thaw the third embryo to see if it's looking better. When I did my double transfer that resulted in my chem pregnancy, the hatching blast looked great (all the cells had filled the circle shape) but the second embryo hadn't expanded well (the cells only filled a third of the circle shape). So if one or both embryos look like that then I'll ask CFC to thaw the third. That way I'll know once and for all what's happening with this (unsuccessful to date) batch of embryos.
