    I am 32 successful pregnancy with round 1 of ivf I have a beautiful DD, we have embryos frozen so we decided to go for another cycle 2 years later. FET and another successful pregnancy, however we miscarried at 8 weeks with twins (chromosome abnormalities) I am heartbroken. Can’t think of a 3rd cycle incase the same thing happens again. Has this happened to anyone else? Did you go through another cycle? Did it result into a healthy pregnancy? Please help with any advice

      Hi Farhana, I had a DD after the first transfer (fresh) of my 2nd IVF cycle. We also did an FET 2 years later and miscarried at 8 weeks. I am 35 and we plan to do another FET as we have remaining frozen embryos. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t do another IVF cycle as I found the egg retrieval process really emotionally/financially draining and physically/mentally stressful. Our daughter is such a gift and, while we would love for her to have a sibling, we are also just really thankful to have her. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer for you. Take the time you need to grieve the loss of your twins and then evaluate which option will be the best idea for you and your family financially, physically, emotionally, and mentally. <3

    Our second round of IVF it was a success I had a lot of bleeding called the doctor they went and seen the babies heart rate said everything was fine two weeks later the baby had no heart rate and I lost a child is it because I stopped the endometrium too soon was there anything that I could’ve done to prevent it I’m 35 and the cost of IVF is extremely expensive and now I just think my whole world and dream is over

      Your dreams and wishes will never be over. Keep trying until someone says you can’t. Keep your head.

      Kasey, I had the exact same thing, heavy bleeding and pain but not miscarriage. On the way home from the hospital from the 6 week scan (where they saw a heartbeat) i began to bleed even more, returned to the hospital where they said my pregnancy was very high risk at this point and miscarried at the hospital. After the first lot of bleeding I stopped all my medication. But as the nurse said it would have been a very risky pregnancy anyway.

    These suggestions are exactly right and if you have a good RE, they will recommend the right protocol for you. I’m 41, have been ttc for 9 years. Five years ago I took a hold of my life. Left my stressful job, adjusted my diet, did yoga weekly, went for acupuncture regularly, cleaned out all the old relationships in my life and committed to the process physically, emotionally, and financially. So many tears along the way but my SO was in 1000% and we took our egos out of it and even shared our struggles with others. It helped. We didn’t stop our life, we kept going. I even decided to start grad school because didn’t want to let this define me. We got with a great doctor a year ago and now after our 2nd round of a FET and a miscarriage in-btwn, we are 9 wks with twins. Whatever happens, we will make it. I have hope. Good luck and don’t give up. You’re stronger than you think. <3

      I did two fet with 2 embryos each time! And failed. I tried my last embryo without birth control, antibiotics, blood thinners, and it worked. I only used estrogen and progesterone. Probably the medication is not helping.

    Five days after having the transfer … my partner was ask to return for her examination and told that that the transfer was unsuccessful..
    Two days later, she suffered heavy haemoraging and was taken to the ANE of our local hospital and was told that she was six weeks pregnant and that she had suffered a miscarriage..

    Question …
    Is it possible to experience heavy bleeding after such a short transfer period ?

    Is it also possible that the transfer occurred when she was already pregnant ?

    Prior to the transfer she was advised that the lining of her womb rather enlarged..

    Actually, you can absolutely do intermuscular progesterone in oil shots yourself, without a nurse or partner. I did for about nine weeks, and was just discharged successfully to my ob. The technique is slightly different than what my doctors office showed but there are YouTube tutorials. A single woman can successfully go through this treatment without a partner and without daily visits to the doctors office.

    I am 33, had my 2nd ivf (1st one failed), got 3 FET. After 2wks my Hcg level showed positive result but on day 19 I had cramps and started bleeding with clots. Took another blood test on day 21, hcg level doubled but Nothing could be seen in the ultrasound. My doctor says I must have miscarried. Waiting for another test after a week. Could I still be pregnant? Please share your views. M so depressed!

      I got pregnant after an FET, developed a blood clot in my uterus, and had lots of bleeding. I ended up having a miscarriage at 8wks, but not due to the clot. It may be just that if your levels are rising, and the doctor said many women have successful pregnancies after developing a clot.. just breath for now.

    I’m 44 and about to go through egg retrieval. Very nervous and concerned about everything but trying to stay positive!!

    I do have a cat and I do clean his litter. I’m super concerned now remembering the toxoplasmosis. At what point does it affect the baby? Is is now at the egg forming stages? I go for my ultrasound next Saturday. Had a blood test at my baseline. I don’t think I had anything show up or they would have told me right? I’m going to ask today. Thanks for any insight!

    Hi I’m 44, last week I found out I was pregnant a little over 4 weeks using ED. On Friday my 2nd beta test dropped from 158 to 98. My dr is hoping it’s a lab error, he said he is still hoping. I’m retesting on Tuesday. I’m heartbroken. I’ve been testing at home and today the line was barely there.

    We are not yet finished.
    Good luck to all.

    Hello, I’m 42 and was told last week that both HCG tests were positive. I’m 4 weeks and scheduled the ultrasound at week 7. But this morning I had bright red bleeding and an hour later had blood clots. Visited the doctor and she examined the uterus but too early to see sac she only saw active bleeding which she said was concerning. She ordered another HCG to check the levels if they were increasing or decreasing 🙁
    This Is our 2nd embryo transfer, our first IVF attempt didn’t pass fertilization. We have two embryos left.

    Fingers crossed

    Donor egg IVF isn’t an absolute guarantee of course. I’ve gone through 4 rounds of it and just miscarried at 8 weeks. And I’m perfectly healthy.

      Hi Aimee,

      I completely agree. I have had 3 transfers of donor eggs. The final round I had an endo scratch and quad therapy which resulted in a pregnancy. However, I have just found out the baby stopped growing at 6 weeks so am due to miscarry. Not looking forward to it one bit. No Frosties left so now go to start the whole process again from scratch. 🙁

    43, and just been diagnosed with a blighted ovum/ slash not to sure if it’s eptopic.. Waiting to repeat hcg results, they are hoping they are decreasing.. Meaning nature is looking after things.. Really gutting, 3rd round of ivf.. 1st positive, and bloods going well, until my 5 week early pregnancy scan.. Devastation, didn’t know such s thing exists, for now I have to heal emotionally and physically.. As my belly is still swollen, before we face what’s bext..ED on the cards? Where there is a womb there is a way..x

    I’m 6 weeks today, 44 using donor eggs. I’m on loads of medication, stomach have is like a blackcurrant. Had my HCG done twice 1 week apart 4,49, week 5 409. Apparently it’s a good sign. I’m nervous. Can’t wait to October when I’ll hopefully be 20 weeks
