Re: Follicle size and trigger?

I had 5 IUIs but that has been a while. I've since moved on to IVF. But I seem to recall triggering around 17mm or bigger. Hope this helps.

Re: Dec/January/February IVF/FET!

Oriyan, I know how you feel. Progesterone and estrogen make me feel the same way. I hope you start feeling better soon!

Re: Provera, Clomid, & Metformin?

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I feel sure the medications will help.

What were your symptoms that clued you in that you have PCOS?

Re: ~Thursday This or That~

1. Would you rather see outside your window.... a view of the water, or a view of the city? A view of the water!

Re: Dec/January/February IVF/FET!

Kelbert, your siggy says it all "Just Breathe". I think I can benefit from that too.
I did do the trigger last night. My estimated transfer is either Saturday (day 3) or Monday (day 5).

Re: Contemplating IVF

Hi,

I am in my 2nd cycle of IVF. The injections aren't bad. You do get sore but its completely do-able. I think its easier compared to some procedures I've had during TTC.
