I have my mock transfer and biopsy next week and I know the mock transfer is not supposed to be painful but what about the biopsy? I've heard mixed reviews. What was your experience with it?
Me= 35 and DH = 40 Dx: DOR, Endo, APA+ (really high beta 2 glycoprotein antibody and high everything else tested), heterozygous MTHFR mutation, positive for lupus anticoagulant, high FSH, low AMH and both tubes blocked (per HSG on 3/8/11) IVF #1 - long lupron (with HGH, intralipids, lovenox and BA); 4 retrieved, 3 fertilized; ET 2 blasts and 1 frozen = BFN IVF #2 - a version of antagonist with EPP (with HGH, intralipids, lovenox and BA); 6 retrieved, 4 mature, 3 fertilized, 2 blasts and 1 frozen blast transferred on day 5 = BFN. IVF #3 April was postponed to May, May was canceled. June/July was canceled. Had a cyst aspiration and then began IVF #3 in August. ER on 8/22; ET on 8/24 with AH. +HPT on 9/5. Beta #1 (11dpo) = 3; Beta #2 (15dpo) = 29; Beta #3 (17dpo) = 60; Beta #4 (19 dpo) = 118. Heartbeat at 6 weeks 6 days =132. Lil is here!
TTC#2: Trigger + TI = BFN; Clomid + IUI = BFN; next up is IVF - hopefully soon! (I cancelled the mini-IVF and decided to go with a different RE.)
I've had the mock transfer but not the biopsy. The mock transfer felt like an IUI, no trouble at all.
Good luck, hon!
I won't lie, the biopsy was not fun. But it's very short-lived pain. Take the ibuprofen beforehand and then take it easy after. I will say though, the experience is very different, so maybe you'll be lucky and it will be a breeze.
