Hope you are all doing well and sending you all truckloads of baby dust while I'm here.
Last July our first IVF miracle was born and now we're looking to commence again with our snowbabies. I'm going to make our appt very soon but just wondering if you ladies could advise on what I'm to expect from a FET Cycle. I've been through 2 fresh so I'm assuming injections etc would be different as there isn't a trigger/collection?
Thanks in advance lovelies x

Hi ladies. I've only done one FET, but I know they can be different depending on what your FS prefers or advises for individual cases. My FS typically does a HRT FET which involves taking Progynova (oestrogen) tablets in a gradually increasing dose, then will scan you once or more to check your lining growth. Once your lining has thickened sufficiently for transfer, you then start on crinone (progesterone) to simulate what your body would do if it had ovulated (you don't ovulate on this type of cycle however). You then have transfer 5 days later (for a blastocyst transfer, of course).
Some people will do a completely natural FET cycle, where they will be monitored with scans and blood tests to pinpoint ovulation, then once ovulation is detected they will have your transfer 3/5/whatever days later (depending on when the emby was frozen and how long they will let it progress in the lab after thawing).
I think another type of FET cycle involves taking FSH in much lower doses than a stim cycle, with an aim to produce 1-2 lead follicles, then you will trigger same as a stim, ovulation will happen around 36 hours post-trigger, then transfer will be scheduled. I'm not sure what the difference is between doing it this way or doing the type of cycle my FS does, it may come down to personal preference of the FS or how an individual responds to certain drugs. Or maybe I'm completely wrong and this protocol is only used for OI (ovulation induction) cycles... I'm second-guessing myself now, lol. I'm sure I've known at least one person who has had an FET like this though.
