Hi ladies!

OK, so I’m pretty new to IVF and have a ton of questions…trolling the boards I’ve realized that there is so much info and no 1 place to find the answers so I have a few questions that you may be able to help me with.

  1. How many types of protocols are there?

It looks like you've got lots of your answers but I'll pipe in on one little thing..."How close a relationship do you have with your RE?" Let's put it this way...have you ever seen the show "Cheers"? I hope you don't have to do this as long as I have because at my office, "everybody knows my name." At this point sometimes my RE and I hug when we see each other...and I'm not even a huggy person. except in cyber space: ((hugs)), Marisol I wish you lots of luck!!!

Welcome Aboard the Crazy train!!! Ha, Ha.

There are so many amazing Women on these boards...and they have been my lifeline, and also an avenue to gain an understanding of the IVF process. That being said...we ALL have different isues and reasons for pursuing IVF...so Protocols will vary based on what your situation is.......

Feel free to share ANY and ALL infomation about you. your issues, your concerns and your TTC (Trying to Conceive) journey so far...you WILL find people here that have been through whatever you have..and More. There are some very long and hard stories on the boards...but there are very few if ANY ladies here willing to give up hope or faith.
