FET cancelled Help!

Postby yarnista » Sun Apr 03, 2011 12:35 am

So we had planned on FET for two weeks from now, have been on lupron and started estrace last weekend. I started really bad headaches, and insomnia, after taking estrace RE said to see a primary care doc who concluded it was due to medications. After many phone calls with his nurse she told me yesterday that we should stop and try again next month. I'm still having headaches, bloating and low back pain and stopped estrace two days ago. I am dismayed that they never saw me in person and after telling me all was off I check my voicemail this morning that if I could see a neuroligist same day then we could continue! Really struggling with all of this, feeling thankful for our family we already have and wondering how we go about perhaps moving our frosties elsewhere. Any sharing of experiences, knowledge would be great, thanks!

Transferring embryos is pretty common. You'll need to find your new clinic and confirm their agreement, and then fill out the forms.

Just wondering what happens if I get the same symptoms all over again. Still having a pretty hard time, hoping nothing is permanently wrong with me.

Don't have any advice but just wanted to let you know I too had headaches and insomnia when I took Lupron. Unfortunately I just dealt with it but you are not alone in getting those symptoms. I wish you lots of luck in your journey.

Ya it is so strange they didn't see me first I thought maybe they could just adjust a dosage or something. The symptoms all started after I began the estrace. We did FET last summer and I had symptoms but not as severe as this. I've been working out alot and watching what I eat alot more this time so I guess maybe my body responded differently this time. I wasn't too pleased with the miscommunications with the nurse, etc. I feel like crying all the time now, can't wait to feel normal again, still have headaches, etc. Hormones/medications can definitely mess with a person! Feeling very lucky that we have had a BFP and just wondering what our next step will be. For now just going to focus on feeling better.

ask your RE about a natural FET which goes with your body and you don't have to take a lot of drugs. Good Luck!!

I believe that Ghost once said that natural FET has a very low success rate. Therefore, I don't think I'd recommend it.

So started bloating really bad yesterday and not sure what is going on. I have an appt to see gyn tomorrow and all ivf doc could tell me is it has nothing to do with our cycle because meds we did this time were different than fresh cycle. Getting worried something could be seriously wrong with me, any advice/opinions? I'm thinking maybe I had an underlying condition that is showing up now after taking meds not sure

Some clinics claim their natural cycle FET is better than their medicated FET. That may be. Natural cycle IVF (no stim, just one egg) has a very low success rate.

I have had bad headaches at the beginning of each of my cycles, and even a few migraines. I think it can be common because of the fluctuations in your hormones. Good luck on your future cycles! Transferring embryos is a pretty easy process, we had to do it with our donor embryos. The shipping was a little under $200 and the clinics handled everything. This was going from North Carolina to Texas.
After 7 attempts (2 negatives/3 miscarriages), we have TWO miracle boys!! If you would like to hear our story, please visit http://www.ivfsuccessstories.info. Never give up, it can happen for you!!
