Excited after 2 embryo transfer in spite of ovarian pain during IVF stimulation

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to share my personal experience with IVF. I took Gonal 300 x7, Cetrotide x5 and Ovitrelle. I got 6 premium eggs harvested, out of which 4 fertilized. And finally I had 2 of them transferred. I’ve got a strong ovarian and breast pain, but I’m fine. Dr says it’s normal and it’s caused by ovulation induction… and moreover Crinone maximizes those symptoms. My B-HCG test is just 7 days apart… I’m excited, hoping for the best… I’m expecting a BFP! What else? 馃榾 I’ve been through previous miscarriages (3) and maybe this is my opportunity to have a baby 馃榾

    Wish me good luck!

    Dear Lily,

    I’m glad to hear you’re excited! 馃檪 That’s the best attitude when going through IVF. I wish you the best of luck! Please, keep in mind that you cannot take a pregnancy test earlier than the date indicated by your gynecologist, otherwise you may get a false negative result.
