BFN — The Bump
Trouble TTC

BFN

edited July 2014 in Trouble TTC
Official BFN today. This was our last medicated cycle before our IVF consultation. I was really hoping and praying that this was it. I feel numb, sad, angry, and depressed. I was hoping that having an appointment set up would soften the blow of a potential BFN but it really doesn't. All it does is remind me that we are at our last step in our journey, one that I never thought that we would get to. I will continue to lurk and pray for you ladies as you all have been a great support system for me during all of this, but I will be making my move over to the Infertility board. Best of luck and baby dust to you all!

Re: BFN

  • I'm sorry, good luck with IVF.
    Fucking bump!!!!
  • So sorry....((hugs))

  • Sorry for the BFN.

    I see IVF as a lurking possibility, kind of like the Ghost of Christmas-yet-to-come from The Christmas Carol. My RE recommends 3-4 IUIs before IVF. We've completed IUI#1 and had to bail on IUI#2. Waiting to start IUI#2.1.


    ***siggy warning***

    Me: 29; DH: 53
    TTC since February 2013 --- mild thin PCOS (or not, depending on which RE you ask), MFI

    TI#1: BFN (April 2014; Clomid 50mg x5 days, Estrace x5 days, Clomid 50 mg x4 days)
    IUI#1: c/p (May 2014; Letrozole 2.5 mg x5 days, Estrace x5 days, Bravelle 75 IU x10 days)
    IUI#2: abandoned... O'd early & DH hormone issues (June 2014; Letrozole 2.5 mg x5 days, Bravelle 75 IU x2 days)
    IUI#2.1: BFN (July 2014; Letrozole 2.5 mg x5 days, Bravelle 75 IU x4 days)

    Moving on to IVF. (Why we're moving on to IVF)

    IVF#1 (w/ICSI): BCP 9/9-9/23. Gonal-F, Ganirelix, Low-dose HCG (antagonist protocol). 41R/35M/32F... 2 transferred on 10/14, 14 frosties! On cabergoline to help avoid OHSS. BFN, possibly because of 90% drop in estrogen and progesterone a few days after ET.
    FET#1: Transferring 2 on January 8. BFP! beta#1 (1/17): 408, beta#2 (1/20): 1310, first u/s scheduled 2/5

  • So sorry. IVF is really intimidating and scary at first, but I think it also offers a lot of hope - the success rates are so much better. Hugs. Be kind to yourself.

    Official diagnosis: Unexplained IF. I am 32. I have low ovarian reserve (low AMH), and poor egg quality. I've also been diagnosed with mild glandular developmental arrest (lining problems, detected with EFT).

    We are using open ID donor sperm. IUIs #1-7=BFN. IVF September 2014 antagonist protocol, 8R,5M,3F, 5 day transfer of 1 morula = BFN. IVF#2 planned for January 2015 (antagonist protocol + HGH).

  • Thank you for the support. I'm trying very hard to accept that this is just how it has to be for us. Thankfully my grandparents have offered to loan us whatever we need to cover IVF so there's one weight off of my shoulders.
