    I totally agree with you @Peridot and I'm terribly sorry to hear you've been through the ringer by the clinic in Melb.

    I agree that sometimes there is conflicting information provided by what the FS says and what the nurse ends up instructing us.
    I had a similar trigger problem in my first FET cycle- the opposite actually. FS didnt mention anything about a trigger- then again, getting any information out of my FS is like winning the lotto.
    Anyways- when the time came, I was given a day's notice to go into the city Pharmacy to pick the trigger, nurses instructions were to trigger that night. I didnt believe I needed it because I was going to ovulate the next few days. However, for scheduling purposes they wanted me to ovulate on a specific day. So I would imagine that the nurses suspect you will ovulate on their schedule and therefore not required to trigger.

    I couldnt agree more about the overworked nurses and FS at Primary. I can only speak for the Sydney clinic but I imagine this would be the same in Melb.
    There has been times when I've had to correct the nurses - the type of prog support I should be on, how much or where I am in my cycle. I dont mean that in a boastful way, merely stating. It certainly doesn't instill any confidence in a patient when you, as a patient, have to tell the nurses what to do. But I understand thats because there are so many women going through them now that its hard to juggle. Our names are purely just letters on a piece of paper and its become less personable.
    A new nurse had been working for 2 weeks with the Sydney clinic before I had my FET and just by the shakiness in her voice, I was could tell she was flustered ( or nervous) and overwhelmed.

    I believe we know our bodies more than the FS and nurses. My advice for all the ladies about to go with Primary or any other IVF clinics for that matter- is yes follow their instructions ( to a T), record EVERYTHING- you need to know your baseline and if the unfortunate happens and it takes you several cycles, you need to know that the changes ( if any) has made any difference.

    Another thing- Ask questions and when you dont get answers, YOU GO LOOKING FOR IT!

    And yes- medical pple have big egos and are easily bruised- 10 years or more of medical training will do that to pple

    Sorry this isnt bashing Primary. Just sharing our experiences and the least we can do for ladies thinking about embarking on this journey is to be honest about it. Its not all sunshine and rainbow thats all I'm saying .

    Hello ladies

    Congratulations @smilebabynumberone 🏻

    i've read what i missed and I don't know what to say you're a pro @tjuls
    I honestly have no clue on what to ask the FS as this is my very first time doing IVF. even if i do my research I don't even know hot to interpret it

    Anyway, i've tried to relax and it was good physically. However, my crazy mind is on non stop thinking millions of stuff!

    Im on day 4 post transfer and just wondering when is the best day and time to do a test?

    @jodihon... I started POAS 7dpt and for sure that time you can see the positive result.

    ladies.... I emailed the Nurse then they called me to tell to stay 3x daily oripro and thats what my FS saidbut according to the Nurse I spoke yesterday my progesterone is ok but a bit low so she reckon 4x daily might help for my progesterone. I dont understand that! Why my FS dont want to increase to 4x daily. My next BT is too far away next thursday arggggggg!!!!

    Thanks ladies @tjuls @OneOfTheseDays I agree with keeping a journal @tjuls it is so important to reflect on each cycle & be able to pinpoint changes that had a positive/negative outcome. I also agree @OneOfTheseDays that if you have IVF experience it would be easier to notice anomalies & ask the right questions. It's a bit harder for newbies like me but there is a wealth of information out there so be equipped & don't be afraid to question.

    I also want to rescind my "ego bruising" statement as it is not true with our lovely tjuls who is such a treasure to this group with all her scientific evidence based info delivered so that lay people like me can understand. Thanks hun for your generosity & caring.

    Lastly the previous post was never meant as a Primary bash, rather to create awareness. Sorry if i offended anyone!
