Thanks a lot for such useful information. I have actually printed it out for future reference (My next try will be in May).

My doctor also told me not to eat papaya or banana during 2WW cos they will make your uterus contract.

Anybody heard of this?

Oh Cherry, I feel so sorry for you. Hate to hear BFNs. Let us all take a rest and make some good plans ahead.

Best of luck and will be thinking of you.

Hi srlegaspi, Sorry to hear about your BFN. My situation is very similar to yours. I'm 37 (male infertility factor but not serious) with the 1st IVF cycle failed (7 top grade eggs, done 3 ETs but all didn't work). Of course I am very disappointed but apart from that, what else can we do? I feel so p...

Hi pallivi and cheekskuss, Thanks so much for responding. Sorry to hear about your failed IVF. I think all we have to do at this stage is to give ourselves some time and wait for the moment to come. I talked to my doctor yesterday and we have decided to start a fresh IVF cycle in April. If everythin...

Our babies are waiting for us somewhere

Hi, after reading all the messages I come to understand that this bloody IVF thing is just a matter of time and patience. The whole thing won't stop until you get PG finally and have a lovely baby in your arms. Sometimes, you may get fed up with all the shots, meds, USGs, ECs, ETs, sypmtoms, urine/ ...

Hi Gigi,

Thanks a lot. I will talk to my doctor over the phone today and see what our plan is. I really hope it will work for me in the next cycle.

Don't care too much about the HPT. I will pray for you for a BFP. Do let me know your result. If it is a BFP, you can cheer me up a bit.

When should I start again after 3 failed attempts of ET?

Hi, could anyone please advise when I should start a fresh IVF cycle again? I intended to rest for 2-3 cycles (may be ET again in June) but my DH prefers to start earlier provided that I am physically fit for that. Any advice, any sucessful stories? Pls help.

Hi marika,

It's so good to hear that you got BFP!! Congratulations.

Just one thing, I also had ET on Feb 22 but my blood test is on Mar 8 (coming Thur), 15 days after the transfer. Which day did you get your test? Does Friday means Mar 2, 9 days after the transfer?

No symptoms can be a good sign; 3. Don't trust HPT Let's us all get strong BFPs and have lots and lots h...

Hi Jahan, I am also taking the pills vaginally and have some discharge. The doctor said it is normal. Don't worry. I had brownish discharge (implantation bleeding I hope) on the 3rd day after ET for 2 days and have on and off mild crampling. Yesterday (D11 after ET), I started to have breast tendern...
