    My FS wanted me to do a natural FET but my cycles are about 2 months long. So they put me on a 'programmed' cycle which is taking provera to get a bleed then estrogen tablets until my lining was thick enough (so 1 scan) then a transfer around day 20 with progesterone support.

    I had two of those cycles that didn't work so the 3rd cycle I had a scratch/biopsy then took provera again for a bleed and then started stimming with puregon. Low dose at first but then they upped it until one folly was around 20mm (took about 23 days I think, had to have a few scans and bloods) then they triggered me with ovidrel (with ovidrel boosters as the support). I also took immune meds and had a basic low dose of intralipids. *whew*
    Hi Bongley

    Which clinic were you with?

    Saw OB first time today. All good. Cause of my age and weight I am high risk which I knew so will see her more often.

    A copy and paste from Monash's newsletter today re a current lining study...

    There is some evidence that the thickness of the endometrium may be associated with poorer outcomes following IVF. For example, a very thin endometrium may be associated with a slightly lower pregnancy rate. A thicker endometrium on the other hand has been associated with higher pregnancy rates following IVF but also with an increased rate of placenta previa, a condition where the placenta is attached too low in the uterus. This happens in 1 in 250 naturally conceived pregnancies.
    This project is investigating the subtle muscle contractions of the uterus known as “uterine peristalsis” during the time of implantation of a fertilised embryo into the uterus. It is thought that these contractions may be more prominent in women with a thicker endometrium. Although we don’t know for sure, these contractions may have the potential to shift the embryos into a different spot than where it was deposited. Our study hypothesises that the thickness of the endometrial lining is related to these contractions; i.e. the thicker the endometrial lining the higher the frequency of the contractions.
    If a relationship between the thickness of the endometrium is linked to the uterine contractions it could potentially explain why embryos sometimes implant low in the uterine cavity or in rare circumstances end up implanting in the fallopian tube as an ectopic pregnancy. Additionally, this may lead to future studies looking at screening for and potentially treating higher risk women with medications to decrease uterine muscle activity at the time of transfer.
    Recruitment for this study is ongoing and is offered to patients receiving treatment at our Clayton clinic.

    Yeah..treating them with Valium no doubt which is what Wazza's been doing for years at transfer That's why he gives his Girls Valium...to stop the uterus contracting!!!

    Bit slow on the uptake there Monash!!!

    That's great to hear all's good Luv

    All the extra monitoring that comes with the High Risk label can only be a good thing IMO and IME

    Thanks for keeping letting us all know how you're going
