I received my pre-treatment protocol yesterday. No endometrial biopsy required (didn't make sense when they told me it was required as we are doing FET after PGS and it is usually used to make the uterus more receptive to an embryo). I will continue OCP until January 29th, and will do orgalutran injections January 25th to 29th. Then I wait for AF to show up before starting stimms. Last time I had ER on day #17 of cycle, so if that holds true, ER should be between February 15th (AF shows up day after OCP end) and February 27th (AF shows up on my regularly scheduled day).

 

Just jumping the hoops of our clinic to try to get a paper prescription so I can order most of my medication through ivfmeds.com. It would mean a $2000 savings for us on this cycle.

My cycle date is the 26th I should start injections and be set up for February 2017. I am looking forward to the journey with you ladies!

Can you please help this rookie out and let me know what I should be asking on my cycle day one.

Peanut I found it helpful to follow one of the previous month's forums to have an understanding of the process. At your first appointment have a thorough understanding of your protocol and know when you will be followed up.

Know exactly when you need to take your meds and doses if u have any questions ask your nurses. Make sure when u need to be there for blood work and ultrasounds.

Hi everyone,

 

I am new to this forum but have been going through fertility treatments for awhile now. Prepping for my third embryo transfer in February with a switch to the long protocol - fingers crossed!!! Our first was IVF funded by the government so we could only transfer 1 embryo and our second was a FET with our single frostie. This is the first time we've had to think about a single or double embryo transfer (if we are so lucky to even have two good embryos) and we're really struggling with the decision. At this point we would do anything for a th_abfp.gif but are nervous about the risks that come along with twins. The other hard part is that we are probably going to have to make the decision on the spot on the morning of our transfer. Is anyone else struggling with this decision?

Pattis, wecome and I hope you are successful. This forum is for ladies going through IVF retrieval. The February FET thread is here: http://ivf.ca/forums...ruary-2017-fet/ You'll probably find people there with similar questions and experiences as you.

Hi Returnable. Sorry, I'm new to the online world so it looks like I didn't explain my situation clearly. I am doing a full IVF cycle this time with retrieval.

Well welcome again :) I should have looked at your signature. I just wanted you to have the right support. What is your actual protocol this time around? Where are you cycling?

No worries! Happy to make sure I'm in the right group.

 

I'm doing the long agonist protocol this time. I'm taking the BCP and Suprefact right now. Will be starting stimulation with Gonal-F and Luveris sometime in late January depending on my bloodwork. Hoping for retrieval sometime during the first week of February. This process has been a lot longer than my first IVF but in a way that is ok as I can stay in the "hoping it works" stage longer before having to deal with the reality of the outcome. I have been with the Ottawa Fertility Centre since the beginning.

I may be not too far behind you. I finish OCP on January 29th, and then it is just a matter of when AF shows up. Last time my retrieval was on CD#17, so I expect a mid-February or the week after retrieval.

Yes, it looks like we won't be too far off. Hoping things go smoothly for you and fingers crossed for success for everyone on this thread. My retrieval was CD#14 last time but I'm not sure how things will compare this cycle with a new protocol. I find the uncertainty of the timing a struggle to deal with. Trying to manage my work schedule so I can take a day off at any time is not always easy. I debated taking more time off around the retrieval and transfer but decided I would prefer to have time off when we find out the results of the cycle.

Yes the timing thing is a struggle for me as well. I have a business trip upcoming that I had to keep telling my boss I couldn't commit on the date as I wasn't really sure what was happening with my cycling. Right now I just gave him a two week window when I couldn't travel. DH also has a week of business stuff at his regular location, but it would be a challenge for him to take off, however that whole week is withing our ER window....it sucks...it's stressful, but we have no control over it. We are both very dedicated to our jobs and our bosses see that.
