    Both my original FS and Wazza didn't do them as a matter of course Luv. They did what's called the "clinical touch" transfer which is transferring "blindly" (though it isn't really because the depth of the endometrial cavity is measured and then an appropriate catheter is chosen to use for transfer).

    Anyhoo...I did ask my original FS to do a guided transfer just for sh!ts and giggles so I could see what happens. I had to drink water prior to the transfer and I had the nurse pushing down on my lower abdomen with the ultrasound probe while the FS was watching on the monitor where the catheter was going so he could decide where he was going to deposit the embryo's

    When that happens you see a bit of a white bubble on the ultrasound screen so you know they've been released from the catheter (although as you know the catheter gets checked afterwards just to make sure)

    So I took the advice of I think it was @tuxcat.. I just pee'd when I needed to that drank a heap of water about 45 minute before my transfer. Worked a treat!

    My transfer had a doctor doing the actual embryo transfer, and a nurse standing holding the ultrasound thingy on my tummy.

    Interesting that Wazza doesn't do them..

    Not as a matter of course though I'm sure he would do them if you had an unusually shaped uterus etc.

    Someone with his level of experience and years of doing transfers doesn't need to plus I don't think it's proven it's necessarily going to give you a better outcome anyway (depending on which study you read).

Wazza also suggests lots of "rooties" in cycle to help them clear the pipes.
    Yep the three M's absolutely are the pits. But if they drill the nuts, ice them up and then use ICSI there's still a good chance there may be a few goodies in there.

    The icing the balls thing...not too sure as my Ex never had to do it???

    One of Wazza's other Girls here might know or one of them on the Appreciation Thread is bound to know for sure!!!

    I had an ultrasound guided transfer. I think Monash do them as a matter of course. If they hadn't done one I would have asked for one but only as I was paranoid about implantation in my Caesar scar which I was told at my tube flushing scan, whatever that's called, increased my risk of Caesar scar ectopic. My scar has separated slightly. I wanted to see that catheter going in way past my lower uterus where that scar was!

    @Maxwellsmum I'm sure it can't hurt, I have read somewhere that keeping the ball bags cool is important and cool showers are the better than hot ones and definitely no saunas or spas so it makes sense. Also no undies or at least very loose ones as they can even be too constrictive and damage the goods.

    Although this new remedy may take a bit of convincing baha

    Re: the ultrasound transfer thingy, my fs didn't do them but he said he didnt because when he did my lap/hyst he had measurements of my uterus so he would know how 'far' to go. So if your fs doesnt use them, they might already have measurements from previous procedures or ultrasounds :-)

    There's a thread titled Pill Wedding Honeymoon Baby. She's wanting advice on when to stop the pill so she's not pregnant before her wedding/honeymoon. I don't have the heart to pop in and say I stopped the pill in June 2011 before my wedding in July 2011. Spent our honeymoon in July/August 2011 arguing with DH as he didn't like me drinking too many cocktails as we both were thinking I'd get pregnant and I'm STILL not pregnant

    @Blossom74 by praying really hard! That's what I do... and warn the nurse not to press too hard with the ultrasound otherwise the fs will get a shower.
