    Default Failed fresh cycle - any FET success stories?

    Hello lovely BH ladies,

    I've just found out that my first fresh IVF cycle was a BFN. I'm thinking of doing a FET in Feb and was wondering if anyone had better luck with a FET. I've had 2 previous ectopics and been trying for 7years now but still no baby .

    Really hoping the FET can work for me, any postive stories appreciated. Thanks

    I've had success with both, but for some reason many people do better with frozen for sure.

    I vaguely remember reading somewhere that some clinics exclusively do FETs. I think it's something to do with allowing the body to settle down to normal hormone levels before transfer.

    Both my transfers have been FET and both resulted in take home babies.

    Thanks heaps, @Tinkers @bubbletrouble could you share any tips on how you prepared your body before a FET? At this moment I would try anything.

    nothing special really. I had been eating healthy for quite a few months prior and was also doing yoga at the time.

    My first fresh was a negative.
    First FET was positive but ended up chemical.
    My second FET was positive and am currently 22 weeks all going well.

    Good Luck

    Ate healthy, but also indulged in wine and chocolate when I wanted to (2 month rest after stim cycle). I just did gentle walking as exercise.

    Basically I tried not to do anything strenuous to make my body think it was in a stressful situation - didn't want any DNA triggers about possible starvation or fleeing from a competing tribe!

    I did cut back on caffeine, but that was because I stick to the 200mg max guide during a cycle, and I find it difficult to give up my coffee.
