How long have you been TTC? It's in my siggy but it's been over two years now. About 14ish months with MA.

Do you have any children? Nope, unless you count the furry-four-legged variety

What treatments have you done? Oh boy, We started off with just charting and TI, then found out I don't ovulate. So we tried Clomid and TI (x2), Clomid and IUI (x2), Femara (didn't respond). Then I graduated to my RE and I started Metformin and tried one more clomid and IUI cycle before moving on to injectables. I tried Repronex and IUI (x3), but two of those cycles were canceled to overstimuation. This last attempt was back to Clomid but upped to 100mg and IUI and AF just showed. There were a few more canceled cycles in and between there for cysts and non-response.

What's your plan for this cycle? We are closing the book on our MA journey for now... and are finally moving full force ahead with adoption. We hope to have our home study done by early next year

Interesting Tidbit: I grew up in Maui and miss it pretty much every day of my life. I wish we could move back there but the living expenses are just outrageous. Maybe someday I will get to retire to there! Until then, we try to go back every few years. My dad, my aunt and my uncle are still living out there and I have plenty of friends that moved back after going to college. It is so wonderful every time we get to go

How long have you been TTC? 2 years

What's your plan for this cycle? Get my GTT done, and then see what the RE says...

Interesting Tidbit I am probably going to be doing IVM when the time comes, because I have PCOS. This link describes what IVM is:
In Vitro Maturation, IVM, IVF alternative - DVIF&G

How long have you been TTC? We are on month 25.

Do you have any children? Yep. We each have a 7 year old from a previous relationship. So this is an "interesting" (according to my RE) case of unexplained secondary infertility for us.

What treatments have you done? We started out with just Clomid. Then moved to 3 Clomid + Ovidrel IUI cycles. Then we tried naturally for the summer. Then I had a laparoscopy in October 2009 and did our first Follistim + Ovidrel + timed BDing cycle, which resulted in our FIRST Unfortunately, that resulted in a chemical pregnancy, so we are taking a month off from meds. Will still try naturally, but will resume Follistim in January if nothing happens before.

What's your plan for this cycle? On a MA break due to chem. pregnancy, but still trying on our own. I will start using OPKs about CD9. We will just BD A LOT, since that worked for us last cycle!

Interesting Tidbit: Hmmmm. I can't think of anything! I'm boring.

What treatments have you done? nothing, just charting and opks, and vitamins and soy... all the natural crap just starting MA

What's your plan for this cycle? HSG tomorrow, and SA for DH, then Clomid next cycle if my tubes are clear

We started TTC while on an Alaskan cruise. I fell in in love with Alaska, and we agreed that we will you Aleska as a girl's name, either first or middle. It's polish, like my hubby, and sounds like Alaska

How long have you been TTC? 30 months

Do you have any children? No. Never been pregnant either

What treatments have you done? 6 months of clomid. Having a laparoscopy and HSG in January and on the IVF waiting list which is about another 18 months

What's your plan for this cycle? nothing. Just continuing to TTC naturally.

Interesting tidbit Never thought I'd meet the love of my life. Met him when I was 30. We've got lots of mutual friends and my best friend and his best friend are brother and sister but we'd never met. I was engaged previously but then on my own for a couple of years. Considering our friends it's amazing that we'd never met....I'm a great believer in when the times right....hopefully it'll happen with TTC like that too

How long have you been TTC? 2 years today.

Do you have any children? No

What treatments have you done? 4 cycles of Clomid, HSG, Laparoscopy, Polpectomy, D&C, Chromotubation surgery to clear out some endo- I've been working with my RE since March '09.

What's your plan for this cycle? I'm 11dpo and the witch should be here Friday sometime. It was a natural cycle, with only CD 3 b/w and u/s, a sonohysterogram (required as part of my IVF pre-testing), and pre-IVF bloodwork. Next cycle is also a natural cycle until we make a decision on IVF.

Interesting Tidbit: Since DH and I have been married (over 5 years), I have never spent a night without him.

How long have you been TTC? A year and 8 months (8 months with MA)

Do you have any children? No

What treatments have you done? Clomid for three cycles, had laproscopy revealing Endo in Sept - took a month off. Femara w/ HCG trigger.

What's your plan for this cycle? Well, in about three days I'll find out if I have a BFP or not. If not, I think we're going to plan on doing another cycle of the Femara w/ HCG trigger because that seemed to work as far as getting me ovulating goes.

Interesting Tidbit I have a pregnant friend who told me that you always get pregnant when you really don't want to, so you should do something that makes it so you can take the "I really can't get pregnant right now" mindframe. So to test this hypothesis, my DH and I went out and adopted two kittens from the rescue league three weeks ago. I absolutely adore them and they are a handful. So, we'll find out by the end of the week if the attage is true. LOL.
