I'd created another thread as I couldn't find this earlier!!!

So sorry to hear of your loss @Russkispy, hope you are able to look after yourself. 

Wondeful news @Cleotzeta - must be such a relief. Wishing you a healthy pregnancy x

Thank you @NicLondon1 - you're right, I think we need to consider IUI to help us. We have an appointment with the clinic tomorrow for some tests and I'm going to have a chat about this as an option to try before we begin another ivf.

I was prescribed 800mg progesterone daily too and believe this to be fairly standard and to be harmless. I didn't have any major side effects - it did make me very hot and sweaty
I've also heard vitex can help with luteal phase but there was so much conflicting information and not enough evidence in support that i decided against it. I did however take 150mcg B12 and 200mg B6 after ovulation and this has helped extend my luteal phase from 10days to 12.

Thank you for the tag @Chatbash72 smile

Well a little update from’s fair to say I’ve been a very negative nelly the past few months and really didn’t want to go to the Infertility Appointment on Tuesday BUT it was actually really positive.
I saw the nurse practitioner initially who said that my Day 3 and Day 21 results were really good, she said I’m definitely ovulating and also the fact that I’ve a very regular cycle (every 28 days) is good. She mentioned my weight but didn’t labour the subject and said just to try to lose a stone (I probably need to lose about 5). She said none of the information I had worried her and she believed it was literally all done to timing!

So next steps:
I’m going to repeat the Day 3 and Day 21 tests just to be sure, she took blood yesterday for AMH tests and also took vaginal swabs, DH has to have his sperm tested, I’m going to have the dye/xray procedure and then we see the consultant in February to review all the results.

Has anyone had the dye/xray? What does it involve?

CritterTamer Thu 07-Nov-19 07:33:12

@maryshelley1818 that sounds positive! Do you mean the HSG test? I've had that and it's nothing to worry about, it only takes a few minutes and will check that your fallopian tubes are open. In honesty it is quite painful but the pain didn't last long - maybe a few minutes of discomfort and 30 seconds of bad pain.
Fingers crossed it all goes well for you 🤞

NicLondon1 Thu 07-Nov-19 10:27:07

@Russkispy Can't believe it, am heartbroken for you. Sending hugs xxx

Russkispy Thu 07-Nov-19 14:29:17

Thank you all! Very grateful for your lovely and supportive comments!
It's been the shittiest year ever! And I really hope this nightmare ends soon and soon enough I'll hold my Uber special rainbow in my arms!
And I absolutely wish the same to you all! X
