I had my phone consult today. All of my hormones and test results came back really good. DH has 259 million swimmers but his morphology is only at 6%. But the doc said that should still be ok. I am currently on BCP and will be doing another round next cycle. My start date for injectables is March 17. I am super excited. I finally can see a light at the end of this tunnel. Dr. also said that we are looking at about 50-60% success rate so that is promising. I think it is ironic that we are doing all of this in March because on March 27th, it marks the 2 year anniversary of having my tubal reversal surgery. I hope these next 5 weeks fly by!

Hi, I have been reading all the posts since my RE suggested IVF. So far i have got my vaccinations, done the mock transfer, did all the blood work and tomorrow we have the genetic counselling and the counselling/ class with the nurse to discuss the course of action and for injection lessons. Any advice. I need all the good wishes nd prayers and I saw all the support you ladies were giving each other and I wished for the same.

I am glad that there is someone else close to my date and learning. I have the schedule of how things are suppose to go, but there are so many variables and what ifs. I wonder about side effects ect.

The ONE time you want your cycle to come and it seems as if it takes forever! Any other time we would all be thrilled to not have a cycle! Stay busy and healthy.....once the drugs start time will fly....(or so they say!)

So, since my cycles are not regular, my RE has prescribed the estrogen patches to induce it and she left it upto me to start it whenever and 3 weeks from then I will start the injections. SO now i am nervous and hopefull and worried and excited and anxious and what not. I dont know I can have all these emotions at the same time

Hi, all, newbie here.

I'm 37 and my hubband is 51. He had a vasectomy 20+ yrs ago, but has good male hormone levels so they will aspirate & freeze Monday. I have regular periods, no endometriosis or fibroids--non stim levels on day three of Jan period were FSH: 7.5 Estradiol: 55 and they saw 11 follicles.

My doc wants to give me bcp as soon as I get my period (prob 2/11) and then do an IVF Antagonist protocol w/ ICSI in mid/late March.

I have nothing to compare this approach to...does it sound ok? So nervous. Not sure what I should be doing...
Thanks,
Steen (nickname for Christine!)

Steen, Welcome.

My latest is that we still have 7 follicles. They are from 19mm to 13mm right now. We will probably loose the 19 as the smaller ones are still not ready to trigger tonight. We will trigger tomorrow & have retrieval on Sunday with a 3 day transfer giving the little guys assisted hatching as well. I hope some of them make it healthily to day 3..........so far so good!
