Hi Everyone!

DH and I decided to jump in for august IVF! I am on BCPs now until July 20th. I should get my finalized schedule this Friday. I just can't wait and have to know if anyone else is cycling in August with me!

I am starting to get really worried about the injections and if this is the right thing to do and all of those other things that pop into your head at times like these. So any advice and encouragement would be appreciated!

Good luck to everyone! FX for August BFPs!!!!

Me - 23 DH - 27 TTC #1 since 08/2009 severe MFI, azoo. Starting IVF #1 in August 2011!!!

Christa, you did sign your name on the first post, lol. I'm glad you are back, it sounds like you had a very relaxing week, lucky you! I would definitely ice the area especially for the menopur shot, those can be a bit@#. It looks like you girls will be ahead of me I'll be starting stims at the end of nect week. Anyways keep us posted on what is happening.

welcome babrego!! Lots of male factor ivf's here, so I hope we can all be that support you are looking for, especially since your DH is deployed. This month is a FET for me (hoping for miracle #2), but I am a "male factor" success story, my DD is 20 months old, so do know that IVF with ICSI does work with MFI, and if you have any questions - please feel free to ask!!

Best of luck to you, keep us posted along the way!!!! And a big thank you to your DH for doing what he does! :)
Me-35 dh-31. Severe MFI (azoo). IVF W/ICSI from TESE needed. IVF #1 - Mar 2008 cancelled day of ER due to non-viable sperm from TESE. DH put on clomid for 6 months. IVF #2 - Oct 2008 only 1 embryo made it to transfer, BFP, miscarriage at 10 weeks (

I am also Jumping in for an August Cycle. I took BCP from July 15-August 2...and Started my Injections Saturday August 6th.

Our protocol is exactly the same as our first IVF cycle in September 2009. Which Produced TRIPLETS...but only one Very healthy, very happy survivor..Gracie. I am on 225IU of Follistim w/Menopur...Last cycle I used the injectibles for 9 days, then trigger. Looks like I will be looking at an August 15th/16th ET and if the same as last IVF...a 5 day transfer in the 20th/21st.

Can't wait to follow everyone elses cycles! Good luck to everyone..STCKY VIBES and BFP to everyone!

Hey babrego, welcome to the board :) I'll be doing ivf with icsi because my dh has severe male factor issues too. I'm so sorry that your dh will not be there is person while you are doing ivf but you'll have us here to lend support to you. Good luck and let us know how your appointment went.
