    From what I can find, there's only ever been one proper scientific study on sex after ET and it says it increases your chances somewhat. As for orgasm, the jury's out, but I tend to think the school of thought that it's ok is correct. They're wanting you to not do something to make your uterus contract, BUT progesterone (which were taking tons of!) prevents that from happening anyway. We haven't done it yet (and it's killing me because we're usually rather erm active lol, that's why I started researching!) DH was very pleased when I showed him the info I'd found this morning 😄
    Hahaha! Well let's hope it helps then 😊

    Hilldweller : I totally agree! It's so easy for us to get caught up obsessing over everything but at the end of the day if the embryo will stick, it will stick. My FS and nurse have pretty much just advised going easy on exercise as my ovaries grow and to cut alcohol after ET. I guess it's just that control thing... There are so many conflicting 'studies' out there.... But I really think that some things are out of our hands.

    My goodness. So much has happened on here in a short time.

    I did accupuncture for our first successful fet, did it again for our second but unsuccessful and didn't do it for our previous fet or this one.

    Alcohol and coffee I stopped before egg pick up. Probably for about a month or so. After embryo transfer I have no alcohol and limit caffeine to basically none. I did have a weak one today and am regretting it as it has made me feel rubbish, so for me I think I'm just going to skip it altogether.

    There are so many things that apparently you should do and shouldn't do but to be honest the more and more I think about it... If it's going to work, it's going to work. I'm also beginning to realise it doesn't matter if your embryos are perfect or poor. Mine have all been 'perfect' so they have said but that hasn't got us very far. I know a few people who were told it was basically pointless putting in their 'poor' quality embryos but they were successful. An embryo can look great but unfortunately they don't know what's going on inside. All I know is, if you have a surviving embryo, you have a chance so please remember that everyone who is in that horrible waiting period to see how many make it.

    At the end of the day what will be will be and we just have to trust that things will work out eventually. When we lose hope we lose everything right?

    Sending everyone positive vibes in this testing journey of ours. It will all be worth it in the end!

    Hi all!
    I'm new to the forum. Just wanting to reach out to some ladies cycling atm. I'm in Perth & being treated at Hollywood.
    Currently on FET#2. Having day 11 scan & BT tomorrow.
    Started IVF last November. Have had 3 failed cycles. I'm not coping very well. My husband is very supportive but my family is quite skeptical about the whole IVF industry. I know my family have the best of intentions but their skepticism is really discouraging & just makes me want to give up.

    Hi Ladies,

    I'm new to this thread too. Spent quite a few hours reading through the posts and feel like this has helped me a lot. Background is both DH and myself are 33 and TTC on and off for 3 years. Apparently we are both really healthy and have unexplained infertility. We did our first IVF cycle in Jan where we had to do a freeze-all due to risk of OHSS. 12 eggs retrieved, 8 fertilised and only 1 frozen. At the time I was devastated but now realise this can be quite normal so feeling a little better. Was going to do our FET last month but were told to use the at home ovulating pee test but it didn't work properly so missed last month. Again pretty upset but back on the horse this month with blood tests to detect ovulation and hopefully get our first try at ET. First blood test is on Thursday.

    I'm really glad to have found this thread so chat to people going through the same thing. This whole process is way harder then I thought it would be, mainly I think due to FS not setting realistic expectations (or me being naive and thinking it would all be so simple since we took the plunge to do IVF). I understand that they want you to think positively and not be all doom and gloom but still, there have been a few tough blows. We haven't told anyone we are doing IVF which makes it hard to explain why I've been a bit distant or upset at times but I don't want to see that look of pity on their faces or to say anything insensitive.

    It's really nice to hear that there have been some BFP this month which gives me hope and I'm sorry about the BFNs too. To everyone else I have my fingers crossed for you.
