    @Caesardust, she's gorgeous!

    So I picked up my FET meds last nite... And it's def gonna keep me busy.. Couple new things for me, progynova pessaries X 2 per day ... as well as the 12mg of oral progynova tabs & 6mg slow release estraderm patches.. OMG so much estrogen.. My poor DP better hang onto his hat!! Lol!
    Also continue Trental, Vit E, aspirin, nitro dur patches, prednisolone, clexane

    I'm having 225 gonal F daily, then a pregnyl trigger (10,000), and then more pregnyl on days 3, 6 & 9 after transfer.. What does that do again??

    And then she's only got me using ONE crinone post transfer? Which is nothing right? Obviously I'll do more, Dr M wants me on something like 800mg progesterone pessaries so ill do that anyway.. But just seems strange LB has only said 1 crinone. Doesn't seem like much?



    The pregnyl trigger shot will stimulate the final maturation of the follicles/eggs and lead to ovulation if enough time elapses (usually EPU/transfer occurs before then or you're screwed).

    The booster shots on days 3,6,9 will "trick" the body (as it's HCG) into thinking it's already Preggo so the body will produce natural progesterone. In a fresh stim cycle and medicated FET, our natural hormones are suppressed by the drugs during the stim/estrogen phase, so our natural progesterone level is suppressed. Hence also the use of "extra" progesterone support in the forms of either pessary, crinone gel or progesterone injection.

    Progesterone is produced by the corpus luteum (the remaining follicle after the egg is released) in natural conception, (and in later parts of pregnancy produced by the placenta). Progesterone sustains the thickness of the endometrium for the embryo to implant into.

    I'm thinking LB is assuming the pregnyl booster shots will produce enough P4 that only one crinone stick should be enough of a top up for you

I am to expect that some will just be too immature. I trigger with lucrin and a small amount of pregnyl Monday morning at 12.15am ������ for a 1pm EPU on Tuesday. I spoke about my concerns with the lucrin trigger after bleeding a little on a previous cycle so Warren has ramped up my progesterone and estrogen support after EPU so hopefully that will hold things off again. The good thing is with a Tuesday collection the pgd testing can be done. @BIB can you please change my EPU to Tuesday 2/8 please ������

    Will do Luv

    @Charlie74 - you may not need as much progesterone due to the number of pregnyl shots. The pregnyl makes your body think it's pregnant and don't forget you will have ovulated and so your corpus luteum in the ovulating ovary will be producing progesterone naturally. I only had one pessary a day of 100mg endometrin post transfer which didn't seem that much compared to what I've seen others be prescribed. But my FS said that was enough as my progesterone levels had been normal to date and he thought I would produce enough naturally. He still kept me on it until 7 weeks and then said I could stop. I would ask your FS the reason why only one Crinone is prescribed to put your mind at ease.

    @Heyside - that's good the timing has worked for the PGD. Hope some of the smaller ones catch up to give you a good starting number to allow for the possible drop off ( like I always had).

    @Charlie74 - Oh that sucks about the estraderm patches. I had to wear 4 for my FET with Warren back in April and found it hard to fit them all nice and flat so they would often crinkle as I walked and start to peel off. I ended up sticking them down on my backside with tape haha just to stop the noise 😂. I would think the other meds should still be ok to use 3 dsys can't make too much difference surely.

    Default IVF over 40 #35

    @Maxwellsmum and @Charlie74 I'm there with you in the pit of panic about lining. I'm so scared Cape Town will cancel my cycle if it doesn't get to the minimum which I think @Tahli said was 7 or 7.5??? I only have one lining scan here which will be nearly 2 weeks before I fly which seems insane. I assume I have another in Cape Town but if it's not thick enough then that would be just as bad. Thanks for the advice re patches Charlie I'll chuck one on now. I always put them on my tummy are they better on your butt?

    @Caesardust bella is soooo cute, look those big brown eyes! @Tinachris yeah, its a sad thing knowing so much. The idea of just having sex and getting a baby is a thing that seems ridiculously crazy to me now. IVF issues seem more normal and likely in my world. Lol, as if anyone would like just have sex and fall pregnant- unfruckingbelievable!

    I can't remember who was asking about quality embies and response numbers. As mentioned previously im.a poor responder we did 6 stim cycles to get our daughter. I think we got total of 11 fertilised embies from 19 eggs over the cycles. I usually only get 3 eggs although first cycle was our best with 10 eggs but only 4 fertilised then fs realised going forward would need tesa. So not huge numbers in the scheme of things. Ive had 4 chemicals 2 mc abd 1 bfp. Only managed to get 3 frosties at d3. Hubby has to do tesa so lower than usual fert rate.
