Hi ladies, mind if I join? I've just had a failed cycle of ivf in feb and am going to try again in July this year! My old clinic didn't recommend any supplements either Ren because there was no clinical evidence that they worked. My new clinic recommend that lots of reports are positive and so I have nothing to loose by trying. I'm taking dhea and ubiquinol coq10.

I'm doing long protocol this time so will start the pill on my June af and egg retrieval and transfer will be in July! Feels like ages away at the moment but it will soon come round.

Is anyone doing anything else to prepare? I'm upping my exercise, doing fertility yoga (DVD at home) and eating healthily, cutting right back on alcohol (after Easter!!!)

Looking forward to keeping each other company on our journeys.

Oh and hi BMW keeping my fingers crossed for you at your next scan xx

not really doing anything else to prepare - I cut back on coffee and have green tea now instead. I have coffee maybe once a week. I've increased my workouts and improved my diet drastically but that was more to lose the holiday & work from home weight I've gained since we got married! I'm TRYING to drink less but by the time Friday comes around, my brain wants wine. But i don't drink M-Th, I'm trying not to on Sunday while I cook!
I asked the doc what I/we could do to prepare and she didn't really have any recommendations besides what we're already doing. All of the meds in IVF are for egg prep, uterus prep, etc - so there doesn't sound like much more I can do except be a strong, healthy host for my future alien being!

Welcome Mrs W!
Sorry IVF didn't work for you the 1st time, I hope things go better this time for you.

As for getting ready for IVF I have a ton of supplements I'm taking. I cut alcohol, sugar, wheat and coffee out of my diet and am drinking 1-2 cups green tea per day. I'm trying to eat more fruits and veggies but since I hate veggies I have to hide them in my smoothie or juice.

AFM - AF showed today as expected. Now one step closer to IVF. I'm supposed to call my RE on Monday to let them know.

Thanks hope!! I was drinking green tea too, although I didn't realise there is caffeine in green tea, so now I usually go for mint or a nice flavoured one as well as normal decaf tea. I don't think there is much in it though and it's so good for you.

Sorry to hear af came but great news about getting the ball rolling with ivf! I found starting and doing all of my injections and scans really exciting!!

Starting IVF #1 in July


Hi all! I'm hoping to start my first IVF cycle in July. I'm 31 yo, DH is 31 as well. We were TTC for a little over 1 year, had just finished 4th cycle of Femara for unknown infertility in February 2015 when I had lap that was supposed to check my tubes and remove a cyst on my right ovary. Unfortunately when they did that, discovered that I had advanced stage IV endometriosis, L tube is totally blocked and R tube is distorted with ovary buried in scar tissue. So we decided IVF is really the only way for us.

His sperm have all checked out great, DNA fragmentation test was good news too. My ovarian reserve is "excellent", so fingers crossed that this works out!

I've got a surgery coming up with the da Vinci robot on 5/7/15 to try to break down the scar tissue and free up my ovaries (while the L one isn't covered in scar tissue, the scar tissue below it makes in in a less than ideal position for ER). HOPEFULLY if that goes well, we'll do our first cycle in July! So excited to be able to talk with women on a similar schedule, good luck to all!!

Welcome Jesse, good luck with your Endo removal surgery. It sounds very high tech. Hopefully the can clear up stuff so you can get lots of follicles.

Welcome and good luck! That lap surgery is such a scary step for a lot of people trying and many don't end up doing it. I did it and didn't they find anything, but look at yours! If you wouldn't have ended up doing it they would have missed a lot to be able to help you. Everything seems to work on just in time! I never expected to be at IVF with unexplained fertility, but here I am : ) But that is okay, just want that baby : )
