Hi
I will be going thru round three IVF. I'm estimating stims to be around mid June. We lost our first BFP after ttc for 10 yrs. it would be nice to be buddies with someone close timing wise.

Hello Medic8989 and Ginger....I was expecting to take progesterone to force a cycle and then start, but I just started a new cycle on my own so I start BCP tomorrow for 14days, stims drugs to follow early to mid june as well. This is my first IVF cycle after trying 3 failed IUI's (the last one was cancelled because I ovulated too early with over 8 folicles). I also have tried 5 months of Clomid to find out that I am clomiphene resistant 200mg per day did nothing (no ovulation).

Some history:

ttc 3 1/2 years
Diagnosed with PCOS after the first year and I do not ovulate with out injectable drugs.

I currently am on 2000mg Glumetza (metformin)

Looking forward to cycling with you and good luck to all of us:D

Hi Crystal
Nice to meet you! glad your cycle started on its own. My RE says the less meds to produce a period the less it messes up other things. I had a period almost be a month late. Sometimes IVF meds can make strange things like that happen. It's frustrating when you want to try again and have to wait.

This will be round 3 for me. I'm having genetic testing done today. We have gotten some uncertain new family history recently and have to be extra careful. Re is even thinking about PGD as well.

I think a couple weeks so it's not bad probably by the time AF arrives again. I'm on Bcp but not for the long protocol most of the ladies do in CA, I'm from the other CA California. It's just to minimize the chances of cysts with pcos. CD 2 I should be able to start stims for short protocol. 4 embryo transfer on day 3 instead of the 2 on day 5 this time. Plus meds for NK cells and blot clots to the embryo. Poss PGD pending my lab results. Completely different from what I'm used to!

Hello Everyone,

I am just checking in to see how everyone is doing. This is my last week of BCP I go for my baseline Ultrasound Sunday and then they are going to assign me a Day 3. I will know my time line on Sunday for everything. I am a little stressed because we are still waiting to here about our line of credit, but either way we are going ahead with it. I really hate being on the BCP's again with having PCOS I find that I am really crampy with BCP (all day everyday). I have also been a little moody and craving all kinds of bad food. I think I am actually getting a little excited about starting this rollercoaster. Its been a couple months since we last tried something.

I hope you guys are doing okay!
