Hello everyone. This my first post so please excuse my poor terminology!
I have a question regarding FET. My husband and I have one frozen embryo, apparently of very high quality.
As my cycle is so unpredictable, I have been prescribed a trigger shot of Ovidrel on 28/08 with FET to occur on 04/09.
My question: Is it 'normal' to have such a large space of time between the trigger shot and the transfer?
I am 40 years old, and this is our only embryo.

Was your embryo frozen on Day 5?
I'm guessing it would be & that's the reason your transfer is that many days after trigger shot.
You'll trigger, ovulate approx 36 hours after, then there's a few days wait so your body is at the same stage past ovulation as the embryo

Hi Krysta. That sounds spot on! Trigger shot is done to induce ovulation approx 48hrs later then transfer 5 days after ovulation. So the 7 day gap is perfect. Good luck with ur transfer. Hope it's a sticky one for u.

Thank you so much!
Our first transfer did not stick, which was disappointing. We only got two out of three eggs fertilised successfully from the cycle. Obviously, I'm really hoping this one takes so we don't have to spend the last of what little money we have on another full cycle.
I do believe this was a 5 day embryo. I should pay more attention to these things! The first embryo (which failed) was at 3 cell stage. This one, well, the only thing I remember is they said it was a "Grade A" and was "Hatching." Apparently that is good (?) especially in light of my age.

Yep you're spot on. Grade A and hatching is a very good grade.
Obviously this doesn't guarantee success, so try not to pin all your hope on it, just in case.
It's a great grade, but sometimes poorer looking ones take while great looking ones may not.
It's a struggle hey!
Big hugs, I know how you're feeling all too well.

Yes, my Doctor has told me the odds of it working for me are around the 5 - 10% mark, so I am realistic. It's hard though, to want something so much and know in all likelihood it probably won't happen.
Still, if you told me that tomorrow that I had a 5-10% chance of being hit by a bus, you'd better believe I'd check the road carefully before crossing! We have to hold onto that little bit of hope. At the very least, this transfer comes with a risk of getting pregnant!

And the risk is most definitely worth it
