Thanks @ScubaGal @Ree888 @KitiK and @babygirl7 I really appreciate your kind words. I’m feeling a bit better this afternoon, after a pretty teary day. We did talk about removing the endometrioma, and if this cycle doesn’t work out I might have another lap to clear things out before trying again. It’s only 4cm at this stage, so we were hopeful it wouldn’t interfere, but you never know. I had a much larger endometrioma removed from that same ovary last year, so there’s a fair chance it hasn’t been working all along. We also talked about changing the drug protocol next time to try and get more out of righty, but we’ll make a call on that once my bloods are back and I have another scan on Saturday. Then there’s always the possibility that one of those 2 follies is ‘the one’, or more might spring up in the next day or two.
So, there’s plenty to be hopeful about. I have to say, it is so good to have this forum to talk about this stuff

OMG @ScubaGal I just saw your update - good luck with your trigger tonight!
@Bellavista You're lucky living in FNQ with access to all that wonderful diving! I have my AOW too, but as @ScubaGal said it's a rather expensive hobby when your money's going towards all of this reproduction stuff! Ah well, maybe soon we will all have to take 9 months off diving for a different reason! I wouldn't mind that too much
@Ree888 Those are great numbers too - you give me hope! I hope the soreness eases quickly.

Hi Ladies, I had my EPU on Friday and will be doing the FET off a natural cycle next month. My question for the ladies doing this process is; how soon after the EPU did you get your period? FS said "see you in about 3 weeks". For a 2nd time in my life..I'm looking forward to my period

@BabyOB epu is mid cycle (usually CD 14) depending on your cycle (and meds/trigger/theatre schedule) so you would expect AF 10-14 days later (again depending on your cycle.
I am also doing a natural FET this time. Currently awaiting AF (cd minus 4) lol. Counting down the days - possible et around 6 August all going to plan.... fx

My 1st ever experience I am usually a 30 day cycle so when he said 3 weeks it didn't make sense as 14 days would put me 11th August. I had EPU at day 13... So it got the better of me and thought I'd ask. Wishing you all the best of luck with your journey's.

We have all the gear and are lucky to just go when the time is right and the weather is kind.

I *think* epu is always 13-15 days post cd1 regardless of your cycle length (particularly if medicated because it either encourages or supresses ovulation to suit the growth/clinic/theatre etc). My cycle is anywhere from 25 - 32 days (so unpredictable). My fs has recommended a natural fet (no drugs) and will do the et at cd 19 with a 5day blast - will be nearly 6 days on thaw (so my CD1 should be this Friday) depending on surge etc. But going by those dates transfer should be 6 August) fx
