Good luck @Kathk18!!!
Hi all. Just checking in. I have my 5th egg collection coming up this Friday morning. Been a long stim cycle. Got another cyst and that and the hormones are making me feel horrible. Actually went to hospital in an ambulance yesterday for a horrendous migraine and vomiting. Home now and waiting for Friday. Can't wait to be off the hormones 😊
Its back on the bandwagon for me in the coming month.
I just had a hole heap of new tests done following a stim cycle/ early MC & 2 failed natural cycles.
A recent hysteroscopy & DC came back with great results (no polyps / cysts / or any other nasties / below average NK cells & below average inflammation)
So this next cycle we are going in all guns a blazing. We are doing our first double embryo transfer and we are also trying a Luteal protocol which includes antibiotics / steroids / estrogren pills / progesterone pessaries / heparin injections daily post ovulation.
just wondering if anyone has done a similar cycle?
I'm excited but nervous as all of my other FET's have been natural.
AFM: well I'll be starting my puregon injections on Sat eeeek. Will get final confirmation tomorrow from my FS as I had my blood test this morning to make sure the deregulation med cycle has worked. Getting more nervous now as its all becoming very real for my first cycle.
Hi ladies, had my EPU done today. Out of 10 follicles I had 7 eggs however only 5 were mature. ICSI will be done on all 5 and call tomorrow with another update.. I am really nervous and a bit emotional I think it has hit my how much this is out of my hands now.
I am also in quite a bit of pain and feeling very uncomfortable, can't sit need to lie down, lower back pain and constantly feel like something is getting pushed on my bladder.. Anyone else experience this discomfort after EPU? Glad I took an extra day off.
I just laid on the couch for the rest of the day because every time i sat down i felt like my entire uterus was pushing into my stomach and diaphram.
@Kathk18 Hi yep I'm always in pain after egg collection. You should be right in a day or two. Are you having a fresh transfer? If not load up on pain killers. I have my EPU nice and early tomorrow at 6:50. I've had a long stim cycle as the follicles have grown very slowly. I also got a cyst on one side which was taking up a lot of room. They are going to drain it tomorrow. That's a good count you got! You don't want too many as it hurts more and they believe the quality is better with less. Usually the stats are 50% will fertilise. Fingers crossed. Will check in tomorrow and I'm hoping for 8/9.
Thanks @evenlynmoo and Apples1234 and good luck for tomorrow.
I am finding laying down is helping but any other tips... I also feel constipated can't go toilet only to wee
Yes I am having having a fresh transfer
