    Have a question

    Hi Girls

    I have been meaning to ask you for a while. I was wondering if one of you or a couple of you can do a list of abbreviations of the stuff you use in here ie FET, STIM etc so we can add it to the forum jargon thread, under medical jargon



    Just reply to this post and I can copy it all over into the other thread.

    Love

    ET = embryo transfer
    FET = Frozen embryo transfer

    I'd just add to FET definition and say that it follows an IVF cycle with use of frozen embryos from that earlier IVF.

    Protocol = type, amount and timing of drugs given as part of an assisted conception cycle

    Natural FET = following a woman's natural cycle, but putting a frozen embryo back at the same time it would have happened in the woman's cycle
