Someone I follow on Instagram is at the same clinic as me and with my RE and she cycled about a week before me. She also did her ERA a week before me. Her results came in last week and they were inconclusive. So of course I was worried that mine would be as well. When the NP did the 2 biopsies she said that the 2nd one was way better than the first. She’d gotten a better sample. So I started wondering if she’d sent the better sample for the ERA and if not, did they have enough to test? Would I have to do it again if it was inconclusive? etc. etc. You know how one’s mind can get away with itself.
Thankfully, we did get a result. Unfortunately, the doctor didn’t use the words pre or post-receptive so I’m hoping I don’t get this wrong. He said that my lining would be receptive with 12 more hours of progesterone support. So my understanding is that I’m pre-receptive. How they know this down to the hour is fascinating to me.
The doctor said that this is very good news and the reason the last 2 transfers didn’t work is probably because we were transferring too early. When I told one of my friends he jokingly (at least I think he was joking) said that I should sue my previous doctor for negligence haha.
As for the other biopsy they did. Those results came back negative for infection as well, so that’s good.
All that’s left is the dreaded SHG next Wednesday. I have requested Valium and should get that before the appointment. I stand to be corrected but I think Valium is just for the anxiety though so my guess is I’ll still feel a lot of pain, I just won’t care. I still don’t want to do this horrid test, though.
Okay, back to work I go. Happy Ash Wednesday to those of you who observe!

Wonderful news! Valium always helped me not care or feel pain 😉
Yes, that’s what I like to hear! That made me feel really good, thank you 🙂
So glad you did the ERA and got your answer. IMO, This should be required before any IVF…I wish more REs educated their patients that ERAs exist. And with that, too many acronyms!
Best wishes on your procedure. I hope they give you a nice, strong dose of Valium!
Thank you! I 100% agree that it should be required. Maybe soon since the results have been quite positive. I have two 5mg tablets. I’m contemplating taking them both but I’m a lightweight lol.
Glad there is an answer! I hope your SHG goes well and the Valium does its job.
Thank you! Me too! 🙂
Great news. I hope this cycle is successful for you 🙂
Thank you!! x
Hope the SHG goes ok today! x
Thank you! it was painful but over really quickly :).
