So apparently there are quite a few of us cycling in September, so let's start a September Buddies group.   I know quite a few of us introduced ourselves under 'who else is doing IVF in Sept', so why doesn't everyone check in here and we can start a progress chart?


I am excited to be starting again. I'm currently on 1st week of BCP's, one more week to go.  I go in for my baseline on Sept 5th, and take my first Lupron shot that day, if all is well.


Let's have a great September, ladies, with lots of BFP's!  :)

Hi there. I am not sure if I am doing this right, but I wanted to finally talk to other people. My husband and I have been TTC for about 18 months now, with no success. We are going to be trying our 1st round of IVF in September, if all looks good on my ultrasound on Monday. I only have 1 ovary and last ultrasound I had a cyst on it, so my RE had me take 2 birth control pills a night for 10 days and I go back Monday to see if the cyst is gone. I have been reading message boards like this throughout our time trying but have never been brave enough to post. We were on clomid for almost a year with our regular OB/GYN and then finally started working with an RE in April of this year. We tried 1 round of Gonadotropins and timed intercourse, unsuccessfully. Then had to take a cycle off, and we were going to do a round of Gonadotropins and IUI when we found the cyst on my ovary, so we have decided to go for IVF. We are just so tired of the heartbreak and the negative results month after month, we wanted to try something that had decent success rates. I have no idea what to expect as far as IVF, so any advice would be much appreciated!

amarlow12- this is also my 1st IVF and there were a lot of other newbies as well, so we are in the same boat.

Thanks for the encouragement :-)

I won't have my dates until near the end of the week, but today the nurse says it looks like the procedure will be the week of the 12th or the week of the 26th.

Went today and I still have the cyst on my ovary, but it is getting much smaller. So I guess that's good news, every little bit counts!

I am anxious to get my real dates, start the meds, and get things going!

Goodluck to all of you, hopefully this month with work for all of us!
