Hi, I'm new :)
Posted 20 August 2012 - 12:08 AM
I'm new here, just turned 35 and we are getting ready to start our first ivf cylce in September. I've been reading a bit on the boards and it looks like this is a great place to come for support and questions. 2 years ago we did did 3 unsuccessful iui's and so far we have unexplained infertility, we have done a bunch of travelling and now decided that we want to take the next step and try ivf.
Looking forward to chatting with you all!

You should join a cycle group for Sept. IVF and then you can talk to other women who are all going through the same thing at the same time as you.
Wishing you the very best of luck & hope for a successful IVF cycle!

cheers and best of luck!
Me: 40 DB 31
Started TTC when i was 29 turning 30. My ex and I tried for 6 years. Then decided we hadn't come close to getting pregnant with trying everything but IVF, so we decided to live child free.
We divorced and I met a man 10 years younger than me who encouraged me to try again, knowing there was a very good chance I may never make him a father. We are now doing IVF with ICSI (because of my age). No time to waste!
Dec 31-CD3 u/s & b/w. Scan shows 6 follies, Estrogen a bit high but will proceed with meds and may convert to IUI cycle if necessary
Dec 31-CD3 starting stims. 300iu Puregon & 75iu Menopur
Jan 3rd-2013 CD7 u/s & b/w. Scan shows 7 follies and great uterine lining. Adding orgalutran
Jan 5th CD9 u/s & b/w all good. Still have 7 follies
Jan 7th CD 11 HCG trigger shot tonight
Jan 9th CD13-Egg Retrieval
Jan 10th CD14 Retreived 5 eggs at ER, 3 fertilized, possibly the 4th too..they are watching it
Jan 12th CD15 Will do a 3 Day transfer of 3 embies (and hope to freeze the 4th if it grows)
Jan 12th -3 day ET. Transfered 4 embies...we wanted to transfer 3 and freeze one, but the embryologist said the 4th was slow growing and it would have a better chance inside me and might not make it to freeze, so we transferred all 4!!
Jan 23-11dp3dt BETA....Praying for my first ever BFP!!
