Is it Good to do a Back-to-back FET?

August 15, 2009

The first Beta yesterday came back with a BFN. It was not a suprise since I’ve done 4 home tests and they were all negative. It’s official – I will have to move on and prepare for the next round.

Here is my FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer) protocol:

I will start with Estrodot patches on CD1 and then do u/s and bloodtest on CD14 to check lining and E2. If it’s good to go, then I will start Crinone on CD14. ET will be 3days later since i have 3-day ICSI embryos.

I did my last ET on Aug 1 2009 and yesterday Aug 14 was #1 beta with negative. I stopped meds (Estrodot patches & Crinone progesterone gel) yesterday. I am waiting for my AF to come to start a new FET cycle. My clinic told me that I can start a back-to-back FET right away on first day of my incoming period.

My question is:

Is it ok to do a back-to-back FET? Will it be better to wait at least one more cycle to do the next FET, so that my body will be in a better condition? will those meds that I used in last cycle will influence the back-to-back FET?

What will you recommend, back-to-back FET or not?

Anyone else has any experience or insight on this issue?

    It’s difficult to predict which way is better than other. If your doctor suggested you to do so, she/he must have a good result in the program. Thus, you may follow your doctor’s suggestion. However, you are not ready, just delay.

    Good luck,
