for dhea-during menses-do we continue taking it too?
Hello again ladies, does anyone know what the embryo grading system is like at NUH?
And also how and when does CHR cancel a fresh transfer?? I asked if they could check my e2 levels before transfer and they say they don't do it
Did you ask your Dr for his/her opinion if you should proceed? For me I opted not to have a fresh transfer based on advice from the nurses and my Dr.
This is from their website but not sure if they have more because that time the embryologist told me I have one excellent and one good.
Egg quality is graded on a good-fair-poor scale
Clear cytoplasm/normal shape
Single distinct polar body
Clear/thin zona pellucida
Slightly grainy cytoplasm/misshapen
Fragmented/abnormal polar body
Slightly pigmented/amorphous zona
>1 polar body structure
hey monkies! how's it?
Thanks for letting me know. That's why I thought I read before that someone's grade was very good. I guess excellent must be the best followed by very good etc
The next time I see Prof will be on et day. I find it so peculiar that they don't have a post-retrieval consultation just to see if everything is ok... so I was curious as to how and when a fresh transfer is cancelled. I guess I just have to trust Prof is on top of everything
i want to ask about 1st appointment with Prof Wong.
anyone decided to book appointment right on their menses date CD1 and then manage to do the blood work on CD2 and CD3 ?
Post-retrieval consultation is usually around a week later. Prof would check for distention of the abdomen then, and also make sure we're not down with OHSS.
From what I understand, they won't cancel the transfer unless the embryos didn't make it. Your last e2 and follicle count would have been the determining factors on whether the transfer will take place.
I think as long as the doc has given the blood test order, shouldn't be an issue?
Hi dear, nope not me. But mine was one week before my period was due. And I told Prof and he said ok do it on cd2, then do HSG after period over. After that it's the consult to review test results and plan next cause of action.
I'm pretty sure you'll be able to do it on cd2 or 3 as you won't have to see Prof to get blood work done.
Hi veraine, thanks. You've helped me a lot actually thank you so much! Hugs
The thing is the embryo transfer is done either day2 or Day 3 or Day 5 after retrieval, so if consult with Prof is a week after seems a little too late to gauge if I'll be ok to go for transfer. Now my transfer is confirmed for Wednesday. I really want to do blood test to check e2 because from what I understand ohss onset can happen anytime from 2 days to one week of retrieval
I can only say prof is a very cautious person. If there's a significant risk, he would recommend you to freeze all. And on top of freezing, he would prescribe some medicine to prevent OHSS also. That was what he did for me.
But of cos low risk doesn't mean no risk.
Very bad bloating is not equivalent to OHSS also. For one of my cycles, my waistline increased by almost 5 inches and I was in constant pain, but no weight gain so the nurses said it shouldn't be OHSS.
And don't worry too much.. otherwise you'll be so tired from worrying when u get ur BFP
can u share more about your pain?
i would like to understand more too.
is it menses cramp that kind of pain?
whats the pain level? previously i had menses cramp till i was rolling on the bed. is it that level ?
Anyone had myomectomy surgery to remove adenomyoma? And get pregnant thru ivf?
Did doc warn that there is a likelihood that uterine rupture during pregancy? Anyone deliver successfully?
The pain from the bloating was different from period cramps for me. Don't know how quite to describe haha, but just couldn't move, didn't roll on the bed cos the act of rolling would be bad. But it wasn't that intense as my worst period cramps.
Hihi same cycle buddy, gg to start fro Nov to Dec period, hope it wont crash with Prof doc leaves in NUH,
previously done 2 fresh and 1 FET, most impt is not to be too stress as it will disrupt cycle menses, tot of getting back my acupunture back, Prof suggested PGS as it just started in SG, any one got any idea? it is expensive, and cant risk to day 5 blastocysts, i havent agreed, and seriously considering...
Hi ladies, been 1 week post day 5 FET but I'm not going to test.
Just wondering if anyone experienced a lot of crinone discharge but still bfp?
We take in so much hormonal support a day (progynova, duphaston, crinone).. these few days the crinone discharge quite a lot so wondering the body's likelihood to reject the overloaded progesterone but still bfp?
Cen, yes i had loads of crinone discharge during my 2WW and i tested bfp on day8 past my transfer. My dr subsequently changed to
Utrogestan inserts instead.
Hi ladies.. anyone did GC procedure before? Is it painful??
Jus went review w Dr tan HH today.. he suggested that i do GC procedure to check inside the womb becos i alway have spotting before mense
Is that a scope to look at the womb? If yes, then I had it done. It was done under GA.
Yes... is a scope to look at the womb & check the lining.. is it painful??i heard from dr Tan is not under GA..
Dr tan told me to do 1 mth before FET..? How long will the result out?? Was ur result ok?
I did hysteroscopy. Not sure if they refer to the same procedure, but sounds similar. No GA.
On the spot the doc who did the scan told me things look alright, then my ivf doc reiterated that. I'm with NUH.
My procedure was called hysteroscopy. It was done under GA and also by Dr Tan HH. The procedure is to look inside the womb and make sure all is fine. There were cramps when I woke up from GA. I did it about 2-3 months before my 3rd fresh cycle. Dr Tan reviewed the results during my next appt with him (can't remember exactly when though). My result was fine; no abnormality found. Dr Tan said he also did an endo scratch during the procedure.
If yours doesn't require GA, then probably it's not quite the same. Dr Tan said this is one of the last few things that he could offer me, given that I had gone through other tests/procedures (including endo scratch) in preparation for previous cycles. Maybe he did a more invasive check that's why my procedure was under GA.
This procedure is done on which day from first day menses?
Ladies.. i also interested to know need to rest how long before going for next cycle..
Becos my failed fresh cycle is in aug/sept... so dr tan hh say earlier for FET is nov.. so wondering if is it better to rest longer to tiow my body first for better success rates?
Usually you all rest for how long before the next FET?
I also did hysterscopy but without GA under Dr thh to see any fibriod. Is on day 10/11
I did twice hysteroscopy.all before any cycle to remove adhesion scar tissue.under GA. Woke up feeling menstrual cramp.dats all..results review next aptmt with dr.thh which i cdnt rmb exactly hw long or far apart from hysteroscopy.
Depends on individu. Some dun wish to wait due to fear long waiting Q.some waited due to wanting to tiow the body.so basicaly up to individu. I myself rested for 2 cycle of menses den go for Fet after 2 failed fresh cycle.
So did u manage to get BFP for ur FET cycle?
I rested 2 cycle for my fresh before doing ET
Yes i did.what i did most this time is not to focus on strict diet. No symptom spotting googling and have a bo chap cdnt careless feeling thruout the tww.and near Bt i have pinkish stain and tot just do self pregnancy test and came out positive thats all.mind you my lining was 5.8mm on transfer..wanted to just cancel the whole cycle but dr tot that it might work.so i just proceed on with the cycle..
Great to hear that is BFP... is medicated or natural FET?
I jus noticed the procedure is call endoscopy... is it the same ?
Mine medicated Fet with progynova on bosrd.Dosage increases depending on thickness of lining..
when u say strict diet...u mean the diet that u put yourself on ? i am ttc naturally before my 1st appointment in december. i am actually watching the diet that makes me put on weight lol.
I think it depends on yourself. My first fresh, I did a delayed transfer (FET) the very next month and I BFP-ed.
I just did my second fresh with delayed transfer again and wanted to do FET the very next month. We monitored and then maybe because I was so stressed and all, my lead follicle shrank before my LH surge. So we aborted the cycle. I decide to rest first, go for a holiday and do it in Jan next year.
So maybe ask yourself, after your first cycle, are you mentally/emotionally/physically read for FET now? Or do you want to rest first? Eg. go year end holiday etc. Or if you feel you should tiow your body first then go for that first. At least when you do your FET, you feel more confident!
I just did FET today. Can anyone been thru the whole process and got a BFP share what u do and so on cause HL is only few days.
Strict diet means follow ladies here say more protein,more red bean soup for lining l,no fried.more vege.no cooling stuff..But during my tww i just took them all.hehehee
Hl 3 days only for Fet in kkh. but actualy depends on ur dr. Mine was given to whatever number Hl days i wanted But i only took 6 days as i dun wish to keep my mind restless tinking abt bfp. 1 day complete rest in bed after transfer. Other days remaining i daily window shoping to Orchard.Ended Hl with returning back to work. Not thinking or symptom spotting or googling. Daily runningman show. Eating fries whenever i want. Drink cooling abit here there.Slow dance moves after each crinone insertion.Test own pregnancy test kit upon seeing pinkish stain wich is 2 days before BT. Saw positive. Silent self and continue with same routine until actual Bt day.
Hmm actually i don know what i want.. whether to go with FET in nov or tiow my body first..
I jus hope that i can be BFP soon... so envy when all my close frens all BFP one by one..
So what kind of food u eat??
Did the embryologist tell u about those stem cell thingy
I just ate what i feel like eating. Fries once awhile. Fast food once awhile. Cold drinks once awhile.
And nope embryologist just informed me on the grade of my embbies and how many left. Thats all.
Oh okie .. urs is a day 3 right?? So u still do normal activities Yar
Yes. Day.3 embbies. And i just go on with my normal routine daily. Any cramps feeling on off i ignored totaly. Nvr google nvr think oh implantation. Nothing of that sort. Bcoz i literaly give up when my lining was only 5.8mm during transfer And dr recomend to just transfer and have faith and trust. So i just go ahead without pinning any hope thinking it will fail eventually so its alright..
anyone manage to conceive via ivf with the following profile :
myself all regular including period.
husband with teratozoospermia and a bit of cholesterol + gout problem.
Hi all, can I ask wat kind of feeling u all feel for FET while waiting for beta test 2.5 weeks later??
Like when lay down. Do u feel like stomach sound n does ur stomach feel bloated?
Hi.. jus to check if any ladies done ivf & after that ovulation is disrupted?
My AF after my failed cycle is on 8 sept 2017.. until now haven detected my ovulation yet.. is been more than 21days alrdy.
Usually my ovulation is detected on day 17 before i did ivf..
Any ladies have same experience ?
Yes, you do not necessarily ovulate after your cycle. My Dr told me that. My follicle shrunk before LH surge and even though period supposed to come 23/09/2017, till now my period has yet to come.
ya, i have encounter. my cycle is 40 days plus after the failed ivf on march.
after that my ovulation is day 16 till now ovulation occur on day 20. is getting strenching.
