Firstly I'm very sorry to everyone who has had cycles stopped i realise I'm relatively lucky

I am having an egg collection tomorrow at a clinic who, assuming the embryos develop, are currently letting you choose between freezing and transfer.
In the circumstances I can’t decide what to do for the best.

Ive read the advice but am still confused. I don’t want to delay due to my age (42/low reserve/past miscarriages etc) and the fact that we don’t know how long this virus could be around. Equally I don’t want to unduly risk miscarriage or issues with development etc

This worry could be irrelevant but I’m being positive that we will get some quality embryos and nothing else will happen between now and transfer

What would everyone else do in the circumstances?

@RedPandaFluff @MrBean2 my update is exactly the same. 1 day 5 blastocyst on board and the others were not strong enough to freeze. 🤞🏻

It's great that you both transferred a blast - although I know it's disappointing that you had none to freeze; it does add a little bit of pressure for this transfer.

Now the waiting game begins . . .

When do you both plan to test?

@RedPandaFluff Unfortunately it didn't work for me (blood test was negative). I sort of knew already as I have been having very bad period pains.
Due to my age / the fact our clinic is closing / the horrid emotional rollercoaster and costs involved I'm not sure when / if we will try again
Thanks for your support though

I'm so sorry to hear that @MrBean2. Take care of yourself this evening. It's such a crap time to get a bfn as the next steps are so unclear during this c19 nightmare. Try to enjoy all the things you've not been allowed for the past however many weeks. Take care x thanks

Thanks @SpyroC when do you test? Let me know how it goes, I will keep my fingers crossed that it works for you

Ahhh @MrBean2 I'm so sorry to read that. I know the feeling well and it's tough to bounce back. I guess the best thing to do is use this time, where you can't do anything, to let your hormones get back to normal and weigh up how you feel and what you want to do next.

@SpyroC I'm crossing my fingers and toes for you!
