Hi Mindy,

I'm hoping the stims are treating you well!

I'm probably more an April buddy. I am currently on progesterone (day 3 of 10). On day 7 I'll add synarel (nasal spray version of lucrin), and all going well, will start stims on 29th.

This is fresh cycle number 5, and I feel like I've been doing this fertility stuff forever. I have PCOS. 4 cylces clomid- BFN. 2 cycles FSH/IUI BFN. IVF #1 chemical pregnancy. IVF #2 no embroyos made it to transfer. IVF #3 DD born Feb 09. 2 blastocysts frozen. FET #1 neither blast survived the thaw. IVF #4 chemical pregnancy. My RE has done a

Hi there Mindy and welcome back. I am a February Buddy hence I just completed my cycle. However I noticed you are taking Ganirelix with this cycle. Did you take that with your previous BFP cycle too? My first two cycles (one fresh and 1 FET) were both BFN. I was on the long microdose lupron protocol (BCP+2 weeks Lupron+stims). With this cycle, everything happened very quickly as I changed REs and he put me on a shorter ganirelix protocol. In comparison the quality of the eggs retrieved with the ganirelix protocol was much better and probably helped me get the BFP. So hope this will be a BFP cycle for you too. Cheers!!

Hi Mindy,
Best of luck to you on your stim journey! I expect to start stim this Saturday 3/12. Perhaps we will be March buddies...
Keep us posted on what's going on.
I'll keep an eye out for you on the posts. :-)

Hi I don't stim well either. I am hoping to get going soon but I'll probably be an April buddy. I did lupron flare in January and got zero follies for my first IVF attempt. And I'll be doing estrogen priming and antagonist this time if I ever get rid of a pesky cyst. (I'll know tomorrow after my doc appt what's next).

Is that the protocol you're doing?( Is that what ganerelix and estrace are?) You son is super-cute and certainly an inspiration for the "it only takes one" stories! I sure hope I get at least one this time. Good luck to you on #2/4 -Pix
