Hi All, My name is Holly. I'm 36 and have been trying to get pregnant for about 10 years. We've tried drug therapy, but obviously that hasn't worked. I had ovarian surgery in my 20s, so my egg reserve is very, very low. The doc says that IVF is my best shot, so we are going to go for it.

Me, Holly - 36 - dimished ovarian reserve DH - 38 Just fine 1 stepdaughter, none of my own. TTC #1 for >7 years. 1st IVF cycle March/April 2011 - Uterine polyps removed 3/14/11. Started stims 3/27/11. ER 4/9/11, got 3 eggs. All 3 fertilized!!!!! (IC

Hi Ann,
I already started on the BCP and should get fully involved with everything else by late February, early March. I'm excited for you!! Good luck!
