I'm sorry for your friend and I know what its like as I've been there. I was travelling too, to Czech Rep. My first two cycles were negativel with two very good blasts transferred each time. I went for a third cycle, pretty much the same protocol but with an increase in steroid prednisolone (sp?) from 5mg per day in my second cycle (didn't use in my first) to 10mg per day in this third successful cycle. Personally I don't really think that made a difference, I think it was just the luck of the draw and I got lucky on my third attempt, but maybe the steroid helped, who knows. It is one of those can't hurt but might help things so worth adding if she has not already. I was hoping it would work first time but I know that the stats, even with a fresh cycle, do not guarantee a bfp. I was told over 90% of ladies achieve a bfp and heart-beat within three attempts but there are no guarantees. I just hope your friends luck turns in her favour for the next cycle.
Wising her the best. Aoife
