Welcome!
I am pretty new too. I just started posting a few months ago but it it seems lots of people come and go and come back again :-]. Usually someone will create a buddies post for that month and then all the girls cycling that month will post about their experience. I am a little early but I just can't wait to start again.
Sounds like you might have luck on the first time, especially if they can't find anything wrong. For us us its MFI and my DH just had varicocele surgery so I am hoping that helps with the quality and count. Luckily I stimulate well so that helps a little. I have a really good feeling about November but I am keeping myself grounded at the same time. My clinic is starting the cycle early in November because of the holiday, so I am glad i will not be on the bcp for to long.

Do you know your protocal yet. Mine is the same as last time long Lupron with 150 Gonal 2x and 1 Menopur at night.

Hi Girls -- I am cycling first or maybe second week in November depending on when AF starts this month! Hopefully we can all support each other and keep in touch.



Is this the first time for everybody? I had a fresh ET in October of 2008 but due to overstimulation and problems with Egg Retrieval I got a BFN.

ER October 2008, 2 perfect 5 day Blasts... BFN  =(


Starting FET procedure Oct/Nov 2010-- STICKY BABY DUST!!

@Susan, Thanks for the great story! I think my clinic is starting a lil early this Novemeber so hopefully everyone will be ready before the Holiday. I really hope we have your luck this time around. Congratulations!!! I cant imagine coming home to 25 people after the transfer, well at least you didnt have to cook or serve anyone lol ;-}

@Jennifer, this is #3 for me. I have 3 frozen but they are with DS. We want to try another fresh in hopes having a transfer with embies created from the DH. I started my BCPs yesterday and I am going to start my sccupunture in another week. Both my DH and I go 2x a week. Do they give you any meds with an FET how does the cycle go?

Hello ladies!



Thanks for the welcome! I don't get online very often, so please don't be offended if I only answer 1-2x a week. I am trying to not get addicted to these boards like I know some ladies do. :)

Hi Ladies!

I'm a Tday Cycler too! Ugh, I'm just getting past a m/c with my last round of injectable IUI so I guess *hopefully* I'll be a tday cycler!

This will be my first round of IVF. I'll be on 250 Gonal-F with a Novarel trigger. My RE says I'm getting off easy since I won't be doing the IM progresterone; I'll get Crinone! Yipee.:)

I'm so excited to chat with all of you ladies. I look forward to getting to you know you over the next couple months...then hopefully we'll be in the same EC group too!

@ Mindy, we will be doing another fresh cycle. The frozen ones I have were made with DS. My DH just had varicocele surgery so we are hoping that has had a positive impact on his count and quality.We are dealing with severe MFI.Everytime we do a cycle we fertilize just a few with DS. If it turns out we are not able to get a viable pg with my DH then at least we will have embies made with the DS. The ones with the DS have always turned into 4AA blasts, which confirmed to my RE how severe the MFI was.
We will probably do a 4th fresh cycle trying to conceive with the DH before we go on to FET with the DS embies. I am 35 and the DH 38. At this point we just want to have a family anyway we can.
I really do think you have a good chance at first time success, just because you don't have any real factor not working in your favor. Hopefully you will be one of those cases that just needs that extra push. However the best advice that I can give any gal going through this is just to be cautiously optimistic and be careful not to get to far ahead of yourself....basically just live in the molment. :-}

@Desousa05 WELCOME!!!! I am wishing you beginners luck as well.
I am doing 150 Gonal morning and night and 1 menopur at night. Not sure what the trigger is. I think its just 10000iu's of generic HCG. My RE is old school, he said he just can't let go of the IM progesterone. So I will be taking that and Crinone Ughhhh. it's not so bad in the hands of an experienced DH....unfortunately they gain their experience on you lol :-]
So sorry about your MC, hopefully this will be your month. I will be praying everyday for our little group
