FET help me not have a mental breakdown!!!

Hiya, I have received a letter from FET list to say that they want to me ring with details of last period etc. They will be in a position to offer me treatment in about 2 months. I've about a stone to lose. What happens next? I'm absolutely bricking it. I don't want to defer but I need a few weeks to get this weight off.

If it not a natural fet it will take 5 weeks from first down reg sniff/injection to egg transfer. You’ll start on day 21 of your cycle. Hope this helps

Two months is quite a short time to shift a stone.have you tryed any exercise classes with your slimming world or walks.walking is what i do i find all these injections and tablets pile the wieght on.it s just a nightmare keeping it under controal.i went up a jean size on proganova in febuary and im only getting back to myself now.

I'd be very active anyway and do hardcore pilates once a week along with the gym a few time's a week. I put a stone and a half on with fresh cycle and emotional eating after disappointment. I'll do what I can until the offer letter comes and then consider deferring it.

Yeah Blossom, that's what I'm going for. You are entitled to one fresh and one frozen should you have embryos for storage. Frozen depends on when you signed the list, before 2012 is not entitled.

Hi Blossom only if your fresh cycle produced enough to freeze . They won’t cover a new cycle . Unfortunately for us we had none to freeze so our free cycle ended at that point .

Hi Janelle
I’m not sure but I think it would solely be eggs produced from the nhs fresh cycle but I don’t think there would be any harm in asking. ?

Hey ladies. I haven't been on much recently, but was wondering how long it took everyone's cycle to return to normal after failed ivf? I had af when my ivf failed, but now am 14 days late (and tested so no bfp). I was very regular before, and I know the ivf can mess up hormones but I was hoping to be back to normal by now.

Hi all I’m new to this site, I have had a successful 1st time ivf pregnancy which I done in 2012 and I am just wondering if anyone can help me with what happens next? I have 3 frozen embryos and I am wanting to try again using my frozen embryos. I have just arranged an appointment for a private consultation at the medical associates with Dr ABajee on 30th May 2018. Can anyone tell me how long this process will take? To speed things up I got all my bloods taking and the results are good... Nervous and excited at the same time Best of luck to you all :S

Got my offer letter today. Can't accept until Thursday. I thought I would be so happy to get it and all I felt was terror. I have been so low from the failed cycle that Im nearly afraid to do it again in case it doesn't work. The end of my treatment would probably be in and around the birth of my brother in laws first child. The first grandchild. I feel like I am only picking myself up of the ground and now I gotta face it all again. I know it sounds like whinging. I am delighted to have another go. I really am but I am so scared of not being able to cope with a negative outcome especially considering there will be a baby about to be born in the family. Anyhow, when I accept what comes next. Anybody done FET recently willing to answer some questions?

Great you have your letter hon, it is incredibly scary isn’t it. You have a bit more time to get your head around it, and whilst it is really hard to have a baby born at this time, this is your thing, no one else’s, keep you and your partner as the most important people here, and have faith and PMA, just because it didn’t happen last time it doesn’t not mean it won’t hon xxx

How long does FET cycle usually take. We have made the decision to tell no one this time so at least we won't have all the questions and we can take it a day at a time our own way.

Thanks for replies. I'd imagine it's around the six week mark. I'm currently calling it the letter of terror as it has thrown me into all sorts of turmoil. The biggest issue is weight loss which hopefully I can do and the other is the thaw. We only have one. I'm petrified.

I can understand that feeling well Annie, the nurse who seen us for our medication appt told me they don’t freeze anything that doesn’t stand a good chance of thawing and the vitrification process is much more advanced than it used to be. We thawed one of of two blasts in November and it’s currently tapdancing on my bladder. Frozen transfers have great success rates now and it is definitely less intrusive on your body. Two friends of mine both had frozen transfers with day 1 and 2 embryos a few years ago that resulted in babies for them both. Good luck and try to not stress, next to impossible I know!

Not been online for a while. I've got my FET planning appointment tomorrow. I'm having a natural cycle, so will be interesting to see what the process is.

I'm feeling a bit nervous about going through it again, as not sure how i'll cope if it fails again.

Least we'll all be going through it at the same time xx

Dusky7 if you feel its to long to wait you could look in to another clinic near by.you might be abel to get your embyros moved to another clinic.i know in belfast the will move them between rfc and gcrm as i still have a frozen one in gcrm and the nurse told me i can use it at either clinic but it will cost me £300 to move it.
