Is lining important for a FET

Hi Everyone,

I am due to start an assisted FET on the 8th of April after a failed ISCI attempt in Feb.

I am a little worried as I have read a lot of ladies talking about there lining before ET... And I remember it being checked with my ISCI but my clinic dont do a blood test or a scan before ET.

Should this be something I am questioning?

Hi Esha,

I am being treated at Aberdeen Fertility Clinic and they didn't organise a scan for me. Is this where you are having treatment? My consultant explained that because there is not agreed optimum thickness that there is no point in measuring it. I didn't agree with this policy at all really.

I was worried about my lining being too thin - but alot of girls on FZ told me that for FET your lining doesn't have to be as thick as with fresh ET.

Thanks for the reply ladies.

Yes I am at Aberdeen... I seem to have the feeling they are the only clinic that do this.

Well I was getting a little worried about it so I phoned and very innocently left a message saying my protocol didnt have a scan date on it for lining before ET and a very helpful Nurse called back.

I was expecting the whole we dont do that story but instead I was informed that they will scan me the day before ET and the reason they wait to give you a date for the scan is because they need to make sure that the FET happens between a Tues and a Friday and they like to do it the day before as cuts down on traveling. But I think it seems to change depending on who you speak to. The nurses are so helpfull and sometimes the DR not so much.

So at the mo I seem to be getting a scan.

Have both you ladies had FET's at Aberdeen? Hope you dont mind me asking. How was your experiance with them?
