Hi!! Any advice on Frozen Embryo Transfer. Thanks!

Post by caz22 » Sun Jan 22, 2006 11:21 pm

Hi all - its been ages since last on the site - hello to any of my old buddies out there!

Has anyone got any words of wisdom on frozen embryo transfer. Any tips for success?

I am trying not to be too wound up by it all this time.....VERY hard! Although I did allow myself a couple of alrge glasses of wine this weekend!

Does anyone know the success rates - i keep hearing 10% or 20%?!

Anyway - just to say hi and that I'm really hoping that I'll be joining you in cycling over the next few weeks....assuming my embies defrost.....seems like thats quite a big what if?

Hi Caz!

Have just had FET and now in the 2ww. I have to say this was a doddle compared to fresh IVF, but probably because I had a natural FET. Just a few scans and then the transfer. I know it's different if it's a medicated cycle, but again it's a lot less intrusive than a fresh cycle.

I think the usual advise that exists for all cycles applies - relax, look after yourself etc. etc.!

Good luck!

Hi Caz!

I had a medicated FET in Aug and we are 6 months pregnant with Scrappy right now!!!!!! I was worried about the %/s going in, but you just have to have faith and pray/hope for the best. We had four embies implanted, only one took( that is why we call him scrappy- because he is a fighter)..

Are you having a medicated FET or natural? I took the lovely progesterone shots from Aug to Mid Oct.( my progesterone level was very low) Not so much fun but worth it. I wich you the best of luck-
