Yes.. it can happen. I did hpt before the BT, when its positive, went to see the doctor to get more support
Unfortunately, my first ivf cycle has failed. Was a bit down and mentally exhausted due to the hormone drugs. Going to rest my body for several months before the next cycle.
Any suggestions on how to prepare the body better for the next cycle for the implantation? Like diet etc - higher protein and acupuncture

I have 2 frozen embryos but they are grade C. Although the hospital said that the grading of the embryo does not constitute to the success rate. However, I read it from online that grade C does not stand a substantial chance for implantation. Any one has grade C embryo transferred and have a baby?

Rest well but not too long. Time is essence in this IVF game

Hi,
I had a miscarriage in Nov last year, likely a chemical pregnancy. However my menses cycle is still in quite screw up state even till now. I had continuous spotting for 2 cycles. N as for my last cycle, I had some light spotting in between. Initial plan is to try FET again in April, meaning that I need to start mercilion soon (as per NUH clinic). But due to my current body condition, I m thinking if to push back further. N also with the recent coronavirus episode, I felt worried too, as I read that NUH may pause any procedure if the situation get more severe. Any advice ?
 
Thanks for your reply. I also had a D&C an year ago and since then my periods are very scanty and only for 2 days. I think my lining has been thin since then. Don’t know how Long it will take for the lining to recover?
Yes I could maybe increase the dose of progynova.
I tried promegranate juice n added beet root in my juice to help.

I had 13mm triple, prior to that was 9mm during transfer.

Have you tried reading up "it starts with the egg"

No because I dont have many embryos.
Ummm, not sure about your religion, but if you happen to be a Taoist, you can head to Zhu Sheng Niang Niang at Shuang Lin Temple. The deity has blessed many couples with babies.

Sometimes, when you have exhausted all the options, you may seek divine intervention. Sometimes it works.

I have been there many times & also collected the red eggs. I have done so many things that all the ladies tried but still failed. Maybe I should go for donated embryo. But I have not heard of anybody doing this in this thread.

If I remember correctly, there was this forum-goer who actually donated a few embryos to a few childless couples and their dream came true. Let me search for that post.

Yes for sure. She has helped a couple of ladies in this forum to get BFP also. She's Dr Loh Kim Gek at Thong Chai Chinatown.

For acupuncture I see Dr Qiu Xiaoqian at Ang Mo Kio. These are my benefactors which I will remain forever grateful!
Hi,

Can I check to book appointment with Dr Loh is it only by walk in? I see the registration chart for Thong chai, the temp number issued since 5.30am? Means we have to go down to queue?

Possible. I had 2 grade C embryos successfully implanted on 2 separate occasions. Both were during fresh cycle. But yes, grade C is still possible.

Hahaha. My best acu experience is at Thomson Tcm. Nice room with music. N yes they change the paper roll for every patient.
Me too! Ive been through many cycles while undergoing accupuncture with Dr Zou, but feel that I prefered the more personalised treatment regime planned for me at Thomson. I see Dr Gee (shes now at Paragon branch) and BFP under her care. Jiayou everyone!

May I know how long did you take her TCM then get BFP? How many times you drink weekly?
I took her herbs 3 months prior my FET then from Trim 2 till my confinement.
My then prescription was to drink 2 days and stop for a day but at times, its a daily prescription till the next visit.
So its v. fluid and she would advise based on individual's body constitution.

I went to see her for 2 times to tiao my body and her approach is to get your health back on shape first. She told me to drink for 6 days a week seems like alot and i only drink for 4 days haha. Did you do the test for FSH as per what she mentioned?

Hi ladies, hoping to seek some advice for post ET. I’ve just gotten my embryos frozen, cos I’m at risk at OHSS so doc advised against doing fresh. They extracted 27 eggs hence my hormone levels are pretty high. I was given the 20 day MC, and today is day 8.

I feel generally fine can cook, eat, walk (slowly) but except when I tried walked a longer distance yesterday (like to NTUC near my house and back), the womb area feels abit “loose” and stings abit. Also not forgetting my bloated tummy that looks like 3 month preg :(
I can bend and squat too, only slightly uncomfortable.

Keen to return to work since I’m not doing fresh cycle and don’t want to appear gone for too Long, but not sure if I am considered as well enough to? Anyone had similar experiences?

I did not do FSH test as I had frozen blastocysts and I told her candidly that I got no hope of conceiving naturally.. so don't waste time about testing my FSH.

Yes I had real bad sinusitis which had been bugging me for years when I first saw her... so she was battling in trying to help me fix my 湿热 body and also helping me prep for my womb for FET. These 2 conditions are tricky..... they are like opposing issues. Herbs to fix 湿热 will cause my body to be 寒... and to condition my womb... sometimes i get too heaty with the herbs. So she did alot of adjustments to my herbs along the way. Grateful to have seen her as no other TCMs I saw previously even attempted to fix my sinusitis while preparing me for FET. Even till now, I still go back to visit her on common issues.

I had 28 eggs retrieved and was also on high risk of OHSS. Had lots of bloating for at least 3 days though I could walk and function as normal. But my period came by the 5th day i think, and all the bloating went away there onwards. I think maybe you would want to wait for your menses to come first.

Better for you to call them first. You can call them early in the morning on Monday. Kkh ivf centre operating time starts from 7.30am. Is your menses full flow yet? Normally they will require you to call when it is full flow and not spotting.

Did u do periodic liver tests while drinking her TCM?

Nope. I only did a detail liver profile test when i first started seeing Dr Loh. She did not request for me to perform any periodic tests. But that was in 2017 when i last saw her on ttc-ing. Not sure if she thinks if that’s necessary now.

I see. I will continue to visit her to tiao my body while TTC n preparing for IVF if I have the chance to start cycle before I’m 40.

Thank you for your advice!
Baby dust to you! :))
