Period - 5dp5dt

I’ve got my period 5 days after fresh transfer 😢 this has happened with a previous fresh round too. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what tests or questions I can ask my clinic to do before we transfer our frozen embryos? I’m NHS funded. Thanks

Iron infusion experiences

Hiya, I’m 31+6 days and my iron has dropped severely so I’m needing to have two iron fusions. I’ve never had one before and I’m quite nervous as I’m not sure what to expect and have read that there can be some side affects. Has anyone else had one and what were your experiences?🥰
