Re: Jan 2022 FET?

  • I had my first FET on Jan 10, I just came back from my beta test. The waiting is killing me😩

  • My HCG was 2.89, I cried my eyes out all night. I know I will try again but no one knows the emotional and physical toll that you go through with the hopes, medications and the waiting. I felt so alone last night even though my husband was there for me.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your experience this time around. It can be such a lonely process even with a supportive DH. I am currently in my dreaded 2ww after having my third transfer last week. I’m on 5dp5dt and can’t bear the thought of going through the heartache again.

    An ERA i had found BCL6 protein in my lining, heavily associated with what we had already suspected was endometriosis. I’ve been on lupron for three months in preparation for this transfer to try and suppress my endo. However since my transfer I have had crazy digestion and gas issues which I hadn’t had at all over the past few months on Lupron. I have become so sensitive to foods, which I’ve had in a milder form in the past around time in due on my period.

    I feel like this is going to severely impact the likelihood of success of my transfer :( . Has anyone else experienced something like this?

    Just had my FET today, so if anyone else is in the 2ww, I'm here with you! Fingers crossed so hard for you, @lolaleah!

    @dramalsuqaf I'm so sorry. Please know you can come here if you need or want to talk. We understand.
    History (TW/loss/child):

    7/2017 -- miscarriage at 6w
    5/2018 -- DS born 3 days after due date, 8lb 4oz
    9/2020 -- missed miscarriage at 9w / DNC
    3/2021 -- miscarriage at 8w
    7/2021 -- missed miscarriage at 8w / DNC
    9/2021 -- IVF cycle #1 (FET 1/25/22)


  • Good luck @mdwiny! I have all my fingers crossed for you! 

    Despite having the most pessimistic attitude and a very emotional 2ww I received a positive result at my blood test. I thought with my diagnosed adenomyosis, endometriosis, hashimotos and hypothyroidism, alongside these digestion issues and internal inflammation, that my chances were so slim. But I'm writing this to show that there is always a chance. My  MC risk is still high so the anxiety doesn't stop yet, but sending good luck and positive vibes to everyone who feels like everything is against them <3

    Hello- i just completed my 3 transfer- it did not go well- i have a scar in my uterus from my previous labor and trying to implant is difficult - it took over 20 minutes and they had to re-incubate my embryo - im hopefully but feel defeated already. Im just here to vent to people who understand 💔
  • Does anyone have any symptoms?
  • I am not sure if anyone is reading this but I just need to share! Got my beta results and it was 82!

  • @relizabethp that's wonderful news! I hope your next beta doubles well. This board has been pretty (very) quiet, but assuming your beta keeps going up, you should definitely go join your BMB. There will be others there who have also experienced infertility and will know about the struggle.
    History
    I am doing this on my own. Left ovary and fallopian tube removed due to cyst/necrosis just after birth. Right ovary and tube still purport to function.
    Began TTC in Aug '18 @ age 35
    5 or 6 (or 7?!) cycles using frozen donor sperm, ICI. All BFN
    Mar-Jun '19 IUIs, all BFN
    Began process of referral for RE in spring of '19, blood tests confirm low AMH (.54) but all else is good.
    May '19 HSG shows open tube, but ultrasound suggests fibroids
    MRI in June '19 confirms two large fibroids, one growing through wall of uterus
    In June '19 I move from California to Oregon, disrupting my insurance, referrals, etc. 5 months spent piecing it all back together.
    Nov. '19 attempted myomectomy (vaginal approach) failed. 2nd surgery using laparoscopic method in Jan '20 is successful.
    April '20 --> June '20, natural IUIs, all BFN.
    July? saline ultrasound and bubble test demonstrate open tube
    July '20 clomid cycle cancelled for thin lining
    Aug-Oct, 3 femara cycles, all BFN
    RE referral. While waiting to set up an appointment Nov-Jan,I continue with natural cycles and ICI, using a known donor, BFN...
    Jan '21 more bloodwork, AMH is worse (.30), FSH high albeit not catastrophic at 13.2. hysteroscopy all good. "looks cozy!" says the RE.
    Feb '21, injectables (menopur, novarel), iui, BFN (doc said the frozen donor sperm sample had the "best numbers she'd ever seen!")
    Mar '21, injectables, iui cancelled due to lack of follicles, converted to at home-insem. BFN
    May '21, first IVF round cancelled due to cyst.
    July '21 IVF: standard antagonist. 225menupur/225gonal-f/cetrotide/5000u trigger, AFC 7; 6 days of stims. 8 eggs retrieved, 7 mature, 5 fertilize, 4 made it to blast. 3 are 4AB, 1 is 4BB. PGT-A results all abnormal.
    Oct '21 somewhat improved AMH (.51) and significantly improved FSH (8.9). Maybe it's all the pills I swallow.
    Dec -21, standard antagonist. 225menupur/225gonal-f/cetrotide/5000u trigger, AFC 5; 11 days of stims. retrieval yields 5, 4M, 2 reach day-6 blast (4AB & 4BB). 1 low-level mosaic (chr. 3 deletion), 1 complex abnormal.
    Feb '22 FET (low-level mosaic): CP.
    May '22 egg retrieval, lupron flare protocol. HGH priming for 1 month before stims; md lupron 20/20u daily; menopur 225, follistim 225, 10k trigger after 8 days of stims; AFC 10; 13 retrieved; 10 mature; 8 fertilized. All frozen at 2PN for later thaw, grow, and biopsy.
    July '22 egg retrieval same protocol: 9 days of stims; AFC 8; 10 retrieved, 8 mature, 4 fertilized and frozen.
    Sept '22 ER same protocol: AFC 10; 12 retrieved, 11 mature, 11 fertilized.
    From the 3 retrievals, 7 survived to day 5-6 blastocyst, from which I have 2 normal embryos!
    Jan 20, Fully medicated FET, baby aspirin, dexamethasone, acupuncture, and as much woo as I can stand (which isn't very much). BFN.
    July 23, Natural FET + baby aspirin. BFN.
