For those of you who had absolutely no EWCM around the time of ovulation, did you notice it improved after a couple of rounds of IVF? I thought I couldn't fall pregnant naturally because there was no EWCM to protect the little men, but now, after 3 failed cycles, my month off has generated EWCM around the time of ovulation.. Anyone know why?
I'm really hoping my first scan Monday shows better follies than previously - there were 4 last cycle. I haven't been on Synarel since 2013 and it's making me feel awful - it's my least favourite medication! (Crinone is second!)
@AmyEL I've always been on progesterone pessaries. However I believe some clinics use the Ovidrel as its hcg, to trick your body into thinking you are pregnant so the corpus luteum makes lots of progesterone from that. Then once your natural levels of hcg rise from pregnancy you don't need it anymore. I've seen some ladies have no luteal support at all with FET and get pregnant.
I'm doing HRT FET so because I won't ovulate I'll need support with progesterone until 12 weeks if I get pregnant, as there won't be a corpus luteum.
Day 3 results are in, we have 1x8 cell, 1x6 cell, and 1x5cell. Out of the two that were questionable, one has progressed to a 4 cell, and the other is 2 cells. I'm pretty happy with that!
@Flower78 & @littlesunflowers thanks for the info, I've done a bit of googling & can see its used was 'support'... I have a blood test scheduled for the day after transfer so if my progesterone is low I'm sure they'll add something... On my normal cycle AF is due on 21st September so I'm just worried it will sneak thru (less than a week after transfer) but since the stims went so long I'm so out of wack & final blood test is due 28th September, I'm going to be in serious AF watch every time I wipe that second week!!
OMG the ovulation pain!! Lol I can usually feel it but this time with the stims it's really bad! Least I know it's happening as it should!
