Hi all, I’m currently in my first round of ivf. Had egg retrieval and icsi mid October but because they collected so many eggs (21), they have delayed embryo transfer for a month and have frozen our embryos (we have 4 - crazy when we started with 21 eggs!). I’m currently on oestrogen tabs and due to start progesterone pessaries in 10 days. I would love to hear anyone’s experience with the pessaries as I am really worried about the side effects. I’ve read they can be quite bad - acne, mood swings, itchy “down there”, messy etc. I’m hoping there’s lots of people out there who haven’t had these effects while on the pessaries and can make me relax a bit! Just feeling a bit nervous!
Thanks everyone!
