    Hi, can i check how is your menses like first time after fresh ivf? Like for the past one day, the red/dark brown blood just come out bit by bit and not like my usual blood flow.

    Hey Almond, is that so? No laaa...other than the blood tests like HIV with hubby, you don't need to undergo HSG again.

    Did you emphasize that you are a return patient?

    May or may not be. My singleton produced a HcG level of 3000

    Almondearie Well-Known Member

    Yes leh... tho she did not say I need to do HSG but she said I need to consult doctor.

    Good good if no need. More savings and less pain.

    If my FETs fail, the next fresh should also not require these tests right...?

    Still sounds like a good number. 3-day or 5-day? Hang in there for the countdown...

    Was wondering, did ur doc recommend aspirin?

    Ya, need to consult THH first..Choy! think of success, dun think of failure. No need, unless during the ultrasound scan, they saw something that requires further testing.

    Can I check any mummies here take hypertension medication? I’m taking methyldopa 250mg. Not too sure I’m if I’m suitable to consume during my first trimester. Thank you
     
  13. Hi dear

    I have pre hypertension before preggy but no medication. And my doc is concerned so he refer to me see a cardio specialist which I’m given 3 x 250mg methyldopa per day since week 9.. in additional, im given aspirin from week 15 onwards.

    I have my monthly appt with my cardio doc to monitor my condition.. once into 3rd trim, the visit will become once a week because BP expected to shoot up in last trim.

    Maybe you like to speak to your dr about the plan so he can work on the best treatment to control BP.

    Take care!

    Hi hellokittygirl, Thank you for your reply. I have been taking my methyldopa for 5 years. I just tested positive so not too sure I can continue taking for early pregnancy
     
  15. I was told by my cardio doc that Methyldopa is the safest med for baby & mommy so I believe is pretty safe. But you can always check back with a gynae or cardio specialist to have a piece of mind.. :)

    Oh ya ur doc is THH too... I wonder if I was one of the guinea pigs for this baby aspirin during ET. LOL. Other doctors usually recommend for preggers.

    But i think it did help me. So I’m hoping the same for u too!

    Hi Almondearie
    May not be necessary to so hsg as well. It all depends on ur dr. Did my 2nd fresh cycle in Oct. I went for the counselling again (that was abt 200 plus.) which I didn't need to so when I did my fet in 2017. Better to check with dr tan.

    Hi it’s for people who have suffered miscarriages before. Has to do with some blood issue I think.

    I didn’t do the test to confirm I have the issue but thh recommended I just take cos there’s no harm.

    I read on internet that there’s controversy over taking aspirin during ET. But I trusted THH and took all the way till first tri is over.

    Hi think dun worry too much on the blood as it shouldnt be coming from the follicles.
    Could be from cyst or fabriod external but its shouldnt affect fresh retrieval since u mentioned nurse consult doc, and doc ask to continue stimulation.
    Try stay relax and after retrieval asl doc if u should fresh or frozen when u see him, since u mentioned your scan got show cyst n fabriod earlier on. But i know fabriod will not affect retrieval. But for transfer i suggest you check with doc are these items significant to cause another obstruction to implantation on bb growth.

    All the best and i appluad you to plunge into 4th cycle. For me i have no guts to do it though i got comtemplate. Finally i still no guts.
    Its not easy to pluck out this courage esp as one ages.

    I think more important now is for you to stay relax.

    Dun sian. Today is friday. R&R. Let your hair loose.

    My case is quite eccentric n rare. I pluck up courage to knock on doc door last nov and this year but am rejected by 2 very good doctors. As the quality got very worse as both of us age and worse off with supplements.(for my case only). But life goes on.

    In my opinion, don’t get too boiled down with the numbers. As Long as u still have your menses, means yet to menopause.

    What u need to know is you will not be able to get many follicles/ embryos even with high stimulation. There’s nothing we can do to increase quantity but at least can do something about quality. Ie healthy lifestyle (you and hubby) and Low dose stimulation.

    As you’re still not that old, the quality can definitely be better than compared to when you get older. Have adequate rest between fresh cycles but don’t drag too long. That’s all.

    As Long as you don’t give up, there’s still chance! All the best
