    Hi. Thank you for the info.

    Does anyone know whether the average GBP850 ERA price includes the medication/drugs (estrogen and progesterone) or exclusive of the drugs? If not included, what is the average cost of the drugs?

    Can you do the ERA test in a natural cycle without taking the estrogen and progesterone drugs/hormones if you plan to have FET in a natural cycle?

    (I do not like the drugs; they make me depressive; I wonder about their long term effects. I am considering asking the doctor for a natural cycle attempt next time.)

      I’m not sure of your location, but I’m in the US and my insurance did not cover my ERA test. I paid $599 (US Dollars) and was reimbursed 60% from my insurance company (UN Hhealthcare) for out of network cost. The Estrogen and Progesterone were order by my doctor and cost $275. I am preparing for a FET from Donor Embryos. To answer you question I don’t see why not, but I caution you that if the doctor does not like your levels you’ll probably end up repeating the test.

    We had two failed FETs with three grade A blastocysts. Both negative. Got Era results today, I was 12 hours pre receptive on the day of the Era(Day 20).
    Here’s hoping it will work this time around.
    Pain was bearable, very similar to the Scratch I had done before.

    I had my ERA test 2 weeks ago and I will do a FET in two weeks. The results say Im pre receptive and need an additional 12 hours. I’m doing a natural cycle (no meds until after transfer).

    I did want to comment on the pain of the test. Most people report discomfort, but I had so much pain. Apparently, my cervix is tilted in a way that makes it difficult to get to the uterus. I did know this because my 1st fresh transfer was so painful. We were able to get thru the ERA test by filling my bladder half way and I had to take a valium to relax. Just wanted to add this to the conversation in case anyone has a crazy cervix like me lol

      Hi Belize, I also have a narrow cervix and have to take a relaxant before any procedures, along with an almost full bladder.
      Funny how I was also 12 hours pre receptive aswell.
      I’m pretty sure I have a titled cervix aswell.
      Wishing you the best of luck.
      Keep us updated. X

      How does natural cycle work?
      The meds are so expensive and I am trying to find ways to save if possible.
      I am scheduled for ERA also. Did you only have to do 1 biopsy? In some videos I have seen ladies had 2 biopsy in 1 cycle.
      Thank you

      Would you advised against natural cycle?
      My doctor did not want to give me that option, but I know the patient has a say and choice.
      I have done two cycles with the meds, and now I want to try natural cycle.

    “You’ll take HRT medication (estrogen and progesterone) up to your ERA test biopsy day – when a blastocyst (day 5) embryo transfer normally takes place.”

    Does this mean you take it 5 days typically, and then have the ERA on day 6? I’m asking because I didn’t feel confident in docs answer

    I just want to add that I had Nolan at 46. If this next transfer scheduled for the first week of Feb is successful, I will b 47 when I deliver. Please don’t let age hinder your decision.

    Also the cost to put me out for the ERA was $450.00. It was worth every cent!!

    I wish you all the best on your journey

      Could you let me know if you used Ovitrelle in you ERA Or FET? If yes Progesterone used before or after ouvulation ? Thank you very much.

    I’m about to have an ERA test after 4 failed transfers. I’m 43 and had 9 transfers to date fresh eggs and 2 FET. All negative never once been pregnant in life.

    • Claire Crew

      Hi Sofia, I saw your status on “” website and just thought I’d say hello. I’m 44 and have never had a positive test either with several rounds of IVF.

    I can really recommend the ERA. I did an ERA in Nov this year. It was a bit uncomfortable but not painful as had taken paracetamol 1h before.

    All my previous transfers failed (3no) Did an FET straight after the ERA and it worked. We got our BFP.

    After 2 failed Transfers I decided to go ahead with the ERA test. I have just got a transfer as per ERA Test results. I will get to know in 2 weeks whether it was successful!

    • Vaishali Devapur

      Hi aditi.. My Dr has recommended this since had three failed cycles..

      Hi – I have just had a second failed implantation with donor eggs and thinking about an ERA test. Do you do this in the UK or in Prague? If so is there anyone you would recommend in the UK?

      Good luck I have my fingers crossed for you xx

    • Marie

      Was it successful?

    I really recommend this ERA testing I had # 2 failed FET and my embryo’s where Grade A after My ERA I can say proudly I am now 5 weeks Pregnant. I must say the procedure for the ERA Testing is Extremely Painful ( I was literally screaming and I jumped), but well worth the Pain!!!
    By the way I have a high tolerance for pain so this is a warning I encourage All to GET THE TEST, but Brace yourself it hurts!!!!

    • Carin Biagetti

      I did it as well, ERA and yes it hurt so bad!!! I as well have a high pain tolerance. It did result in a pregnancy. Nolan is now almost 6 months!! I m preparing to put our last embryo in, Nolan was a result of our 4th transfer, the previous 3 being unsuccessful.

      I went through the ERA again and asked to b put out! Just to let you know it’s an option 🙂

      Could you let me know if you used Ovitrelle in you ERA Or FET? If yes Progesterone used before or after ouvulation ? Thank you very much.

      March 08, 2020
    • Helen

      Did you Ovitrelle injection in you ERA / FET please? If yes, did you start Progesterone pilles before or after ouvulation ? Thank you and congratulations.

    Our first FET with a PGS-normal embryo resulted in a BFN. Our RE suggested doing an ERA test which showed that my wife was 24 hours pre-receptive. Our second FET my wife was put on the on same protocol but with an additional day of progesterone, my wife is now 30 weeks pregnant! My wife did not find the ERA procedure that painful, she described it similar to a cramp.

    I did this test after a failed cycle with PGS tested embryos. It should be said in my case the test was EXTREMEMLY painful. However. We found that I was in a displaced window and we made the necessary change to my progesterone and now as of today we are 9 weeks 3 days pregnant. I firmly believed this test helped us figure out the window for
    Implantation and was completely worth it. And not that expensive

  • Daisy

    I’m on a mock cycle right now and ERA is on April 1st 2019. My Dr. suggested it because we have only one PGS tested embryo and I am going to be 43 in a few months. We will not be doing IVF again, unless we win the lottery.
    I will come back and let you know how it went.

    March 21, 2019
    • Good Luck! We just found out that our embryo tested fine and are deciding on the test. Best wishes. Hope it went well.

      April 02, 2019
    • Hi Daisy! How did your ERA go? I’m having one today! I have the same situation as you except I’m 38. But I have had two failed transfers and we only have one embryo remaining.

      April 04, 2019
    • Jean

      How did it go? Mine is 5/7 and I’m 43 and we have one pgs embryo and this is our last try after 8 IUIs

      April 18, 2019
  • Rebecca

    I did it. I’ll let you know how it all plannned out.
    It was mild cramping and other then blood on the instrument I didn’t bleed. I felt like I use to when I was much younger about to start my cycle.

    • Jillian L

      How did everything work our for you? I had this test done 4 days ago. Ouch!
