As I mentioned in an earlier post, I unfortunately found out this week that I had probably had a chemical pregnancy from my first DE cycle. I go back to see my RE on Monday, and I want to be armed with all the questions I should ask or additional tests I should request. So far, all of the usual tests (thyroid, HCG, etc) have come back normal, but I know some ladies on here had normal results on first blush, but further testing showed issues.
I just want to get as prepared as humanly possible for this next round since, with just five frozen embies, we frankly can't afford many more rounds.
Thanks, and happy Friday!
I know how disappointing it is to get a bfn on a cycle that you've invested so much in.
One thing that made a difference for me was that my chlamydia tests had always been negative, but they were only the vaginal swabs and it turned out that when a doctor finally ordered a blood test to test for antibodies, I had them. And they fluctuated. She then suggested I always take antibiotics when cycling since chlamydia can live higher up than the traditional vaginal test catches. And it can be a type that doesn't get cured by antibiotics, just held back. Otherwise, we did all the standard tests for ANAs and MTHFR, both of which I had.
Wishing you the best of luck for your next cycle.
