Ok ladies.  We are 9 days from the start of July, and it's lonely over here waiting.  I think we start getting ready for our cycles!!!  It was a godsend to belong to the May cycle buddies group.


So here I am.  I'm Pamela.  I'll be starting IVF cycle #2 around July 19th.  Last IVF ended in chemical pregnancy.  I'll be again doing an antagonist protocol without BCP.  Follistim, Ganirelix, Ovidrel and Crinone...


So...Let's get ready!!

Hi Pamela!


I'm Rebecca---and I'm 34 today. Starting fresh IVF cycle #3. I just started Lupron this am and will start stims on July 3rd. I had a successful fresh cycle in January that ended in a miscarriage in April----it feels like I've been waiting forever to try again. I'm doing a BCP/low dose Lupron cycle----I think I'm stimming on 150 of Gonal-F and 150 of Repronex. I'm hoping for a five day transfer and something left over to freeze. I set my standards high!! And I'd really, really like a sticky BFP out of it too.


Anyone else out there? July is almost here....

I agree--it's fun to get started. Although, I sometimes find my clinic's BCP/Lupron cycle so freaking lllooonnngg. I mean, really. But, they have been successful in the past, so I am hoping that it will be successful this time too. I just struggle to be patient. They have me on about 10 days fewer of BCP this cycle, though, so that is good.


Are you doing anything to prep? Cutting caffeine? Alcohol? Increasing or decreasing exercise? I'm trying to time the caffeine headaches to when the lupron headaches hit---the last few days before stims, usually. And yes, apparently I have nothing better to do than think about things like this.

I gave up caffeine during my cycle in May, all except 1 cup of coffee in the morning.

Hi Pamela,
My name is Stephanie. I have a 3 1/2 yr old from IVF and we just were getting started again. I just stopped injections yesterday b/c my doctor wasn't happy with my estrogen levels and follicle production. We are going to wait for cd1 and start a new cycle with a higher dose of Reponex. I am excited to be a July cycle buddy.

Hi,
I think cd 1 should be about July 7th. I'm not sure if stopping my injections will mess with my cycle, so we'll see. How about everyone else's cycle days.

Welcome!


My CD1 should be July 1. I'm on pills and Lupron, so I'm pretty sure that's as guaranteed as anything can be. My last pill is Sunday, so we're coming closer...

Good luck! 7/1 is right around the corner. I guess you will be first to get started in July! Can't wait to follow.
