    Default Requirements for FET for bub2?

    Hi ladies, I was fortunate enough to have a baby last year through IVF/ICSI, with 2 frosties remaining. DD is now 13m and DP and I are thinking about trying for no 2. Fingers crossed.
    I'm hoping for an unmedicated cycle or maybe just a trigger and prog support (urggghhhh).
    For other ladies that have done a FET post-partum, was there anything you needed to have done? Did you do repeat HSG or similar? How long after weaning did you have to wait until you could do a transfer?

    We went to see our FS in august when DD had turned 1. I weaned in September, had some issues getting my cycle back (had to start some medication) and FET in February which resulted in DS.
    My FS just wanted me to have stopped BF and my cycle returned.
    I did a HRT FET which involves taking tablets to build up lining, then transfer, then pessaries for hormonal support, which were continued for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
    Best of luck!

    I'm currently 6 weeks pregnant from a natural FET. No meds except for trigger and progesterone during the TWW. My FS sent me for a pelvic ultrasound to check everything the month before my FET cycle but that's it apart from the regular blood tests clinics make you have every year.

    My FS told me that I needed to wean and I stopped feeding DD about a month before my FET cycle started - she was about 16 months at that stage and we were both ready so it was a easy transition. My cycles came back when she was about 8 months old though. There are many mums that breastfeed through ivf if you don't want to wean though. There's a fb group called 'Breastfeeding mums undergoing fertility treatment/ivf' which is a wealth of information if you'd prefer to keep feeding. Good luck

    Thanks @besha and @rosey82.
    I'm almost almost ready mentally to wean. Only feeding 1 a day. I like the idea to keep going bfing thru FET but it took 4 transfers to get DD, and I don't want to possibly contribute to it not working on these last 2 frosties.

    My FS just did the usual blood abd urine tests prior to starting. I'm still breastfeeding DD but as she's 22 months, my cycle is back (since about 6 months post partum) and my prolactin levels are back to normal, FS said breastfeeding wasn't an issue. The only issue I have is when I'm on progesterone my nipples are super sensitive and DD likes to play with one while feeding off the other so I end up very irritated.
