Thanks everyone! So have I got this right, you either start tablets on day 21 or the first day of your period, then followed by injections?

It depends which protocol you are on. Long protocol you start Day 21. Short protocol you start Day 1. I’m pretty sure either way they control when your AF arrives so they can be in control of your cycle. They only do EC on certain days so that’s why they need to be in control. As the others said EC is dependant on how you respond to stimulation, whether your ready early or later..

At your appointment they will discuss what protocol you will need and pencil you in for EC depending where you are on your current cycle. You will also take away medication and see nurse to show you how to give it etc

:hello: to everyone xx

Hi

Hope everyone is doing well?

We were at the clinic today for a scan to check lining. It was triple layered and over 8mm thick so they were happy to book us in for our frozen transfer so we are going in a week on Wednesday.

Can anyone that has had a frozen transfer tell me how much notice you get before you have to go in? They said we will get a call first thing in the morning and then another call to tell us a time to go in but should have asked more about a rough time frame.

As far as I remember we had a time to be there but they only thaw them that morning. Are you far away from clinic?

We are only about 15-20 mins away and I have taken the day off work but my husband was going to go in to work till it was time to go but wasn't sure what kind of notice we will get. I am hoping they will tell us a rough time when they call in the morning.

@SK88, they would call you in the morning to ask if you are okay and ready to go ahead, they will then tell you that the embryo will be thawed that day, it's usually done around 9 -11am, you then get another call that tells you to come in at a particular time usually around 30mins - 1 hour after the second call. At times, the embryologist can give you a time range of when they expect you to be in the clinic when you have the first morning call. The first time I had my transfer, I went to work and I left work to go for transfer, the second time I was at home and the third time I went to make my hair and aimed to finish by 12 noon. So you can be flexible with times but usually transfer is done around 11am - 12.30noon.
I am blessed beyond measures.

Thank you Kums17. Good to know just a rough time as wasn't sure if we would be waiting till later in the afternoon as would have made sure I had something to do to keep me busy but 11-12.30ish isn't too bad. I hope you are keeping well

Hi,

Just wondered how everyone is and how your transfer went, Sk88?

Hi Scottishgirl,

Transfer went well thank you. Our little embryo coped well with the defrost so we were very pleased we didn't have to use more than one. 10 days into our 2 week wait and it is dragging! Can't wait for test day!

What stage have you reached?

Great news! So hoping that it’s successful for you. Two week wait must be torture but you are nearly there! Are you managing it ok? Must be so hard to resist the temptation to test but better to wait I know.

We’ve had our info evening and first app and it turns out I won’t be starting tablets till December/January (hopefully just before Xmas if periods behave). I was a bit deflated at the time as I was so hoping to start this month or November but I’ve managed to tap into my “patience reserves” and have come to terms with it now! I find the waiting so hard as I just feel like we’ve been waiting forever. I know many will have waited a lot longer than us though so am trying to keep perspective on it all.

So hoping for good news for you soon, SK88. Hope everyone else is doing fine.

Doing not too bad, worked part time last week so that was a good distraction but it's so hard to not be paranoid and question every little feeling. I've been feeling a lot different than I did last time but not sure if that's because I was still recovering from the egg recovery or if it's because it's going well. Im going to try my best to wait till Thursday as don't want to get a false reading.

That's good you are a one step closer but I understand it must be disappointing that you are having to wait till December. Everyone seems to be on the countdown to christmas already so hopefully with the distraction of that the next few weeks will fly by for you. It's really hard to keep perspective but I've actually found this forum helped with that as you don't feel so isolated and realise there are other people going through similar to you.

Hope everyone is doing well.
