Hi! Have any here gone the natural cycle IVF route? What was your experience like? Did you have success in growing your family this way? Would you recommend it to others?

Doing a natural FET next week; it will be my 2nd (first was successful). I’ll still be using PIO.
Yes, if your doctor recommends it I’d go for it! It’s less medication; but I believe you need regular cycles for this route to be effective.
(I have unexplained infertility—I think it totally depends on the reason to know if this will work for you).

For the last 4 months, I’ve been pseudo-reverse dieting (RD) to increase metabolism and stop feeling like I was starving. I say pseudo as I didn’t gradually increase calories. I’ve been dieting 24/7 for a decade, developing a poor relationship w/food and to lose weight, I had to go through extreme measures like OMAD to see results the past 2 yrs. Since RD, my relationship w/food has improved, I’m maintaining weight but look toned af, and eating healthier than ever before. Question in comments…

I am having a missed miscarriage. Last night I felt something slide out of me which looks like a blood clot and/or tissue with something clear and round like (I think the embryo at 6 weeks). Ever since then my cramps have been getting worse and I feel like I’m having contractions today (sharp cramps coming and going every 15-20 minutes). Is this normal? Is more stuff trying to come out?

And the reason I mentioned lean PCOS is because it seems for others with PCOS part of the fertility path is diet/exercise/weight loss but I am already very tiny.
