Me again with ANOTHER question... You all are so helpful and informative! I had my initial consultation at Conceptia yesterday but one thing I forgot to ask was if it is possible to do a IVF cycle without the hormones? I have read on these forums that some have done it and have success but am not sure if Conceptia offers a natural IVF cycle or not? Or if it is their policy to do hormone induced cycle. Has anyone inquired about this?
