When my husband and I found out we were going to need to do IVF to get pregnant (hopefully), and after seeing the cost (I'm a tight wad!!), I immediately hopped online and started searching for trials around the area. That's when I found the Invocell trial CARE fertility is offering... Well, I made an appointment to talk about the options, and our doctor suggested I have my AMH levels checked again. I thought this was crazy, because I had been told those levels don't fluctuate very much, but what could it hurt, right?! Weeelll we finally got the call today saying my levels DID go down, and we are accepted into the trial! Yessss! Naturally, I started doing research about the "device" and stumbled upon this website. We go in June 4th to get it put in for the pilot trial and boy am I nervous already! Anyways, Cassidy, it seems like you are probably going to the same clinic as we are...good to see that the nurses weren't lying when they said other patients have already had the device put in and everything turned out fine! From what I've been told it's just a waiting game for them to fill the spots in order to proceed to the next step!
Sorry so long... I'm just so excited, and it's barely began!!

Unhappy with previous RE, so switched to new doctor May '13. Finally getting things moving along!

Aug 23,2013- Baseline U/S and mock transfer. Also, started Lupron shots.
Aug 30, 2013- E2= <20 (good) and lining= 2.33 (also good)
Aug 31,2013- Got AF. Really?! Seems a little late to be starting that...Dr says it's fine, but I'm convinced it is not! Added Follistim and Menopur to nightly shots. I suppose I'm stimming now??
Sept 3,2013- Bloodwork- E2=60 (not so good-should be 100). Told to up the dose of Follistim to 150. I know this has to do with AF arriving late, I just know it!
Sept 5, 2013- Blood work and U/S. E2 is right where it needs to be! P.S.-Menopur sucks. Really! It burns, takes forever to inject and now it's leaving huge bruises!
Sept 7, 2013- another check up...looking like 10ish follicles on left and 7-8 on right! Measuring from 9-12 cm. Only 2 more nights of shots! yesssss!
Sept 10, 2013- Trigger shot. Blood work for HCG-came back at 202, doctor says were good to go!
