HI All! I am also starting my 4th IVF cycle in March. I switched clinics from Anova to Hannam and am so happy so far. I'm really glad I did it too - especially after 3 failed IVFs (with 4 transfers), 3 failed IUIs and a miscarriage. Time for a fresh start and fresh perspective!
I am currently on priming until Sunday, then will go in for my baseline Friday to start meds on Sunday, March 8. I will be on the antagonist protocol with saizen, L-thyronxine (for thyroid support, which is new for me and interesting), Gonal F 250, Menopur 150, Clomid 100 then cetrotide when needed. My plan is very similar to Misskika's actually!! We've actually cycled together before too I think.
My retrieval date is set for March 19, which has me on stims for only 10 days. The last two times I stimmed for 17 and 18 days. My new Dr has been shedding a lot of light on things that my old clinic did wrong and indicated I had been over suppressed, which caused the slow start. Then being on the meds for so long caused the quality to diminish. I am excited to see how things pan out this cycle! We will be doing a freeze all and PGS testing, then an ERA biopsy in April, so likely no transfer until May.
