Hello Dr. Hollands

I recently had a failed IVF cycle where all my eggs fractured. I am anxious to try IVF again but my doctor wants me to have a natural cycle before he starts me up again. I am on cycle day 20 and have not ovulated yet (i decided to temp. this month). Is this a normal thing because for the past 20 years I have always had a 28 or 29 day cycle without fail.

Thanks very much

Dana

I am sorry to hear that.

This is a good idea

Yes, don't worry. The cycle following a stimulated cycle is often a little erratic.

Good luck!

Peter



Thanks very much
