We haven't nailed down a timeline yet, but we are probably going to do a FET around that time as well to TTC #2. My son is from an IVF pregnancy two years ago.

Hi nolimitxox and gingmg!

Nolimitxox will you be doing a short protocol or the long?

Ill be doing a short and AF will be due around Dec 1st as long as my body cooperates.

Gingmg I'm glad ivf worked for you already. Did it work on the first try?

Uhhmmm, Im not sure yet. I sit down with doctor Tuesday, my period is 5 days late already so Im hoping it holds out until tuesdayish so I can literally just start. I did borth control with micro flare lupron for my first cycle and it was a total bust. Im DOR/POA patient.

I see you have endo. Did you have a scope done?

Nolimit I did have a scope done in January. He removed most of the endo and unblocked one of my tubes. We tried timed intercourse with clomid for a few months and no luck. All my blood work before the scope was perfect then last month he checked again and my fsh is now elevated so he doesn't know if I'll respond well or not.

Do you have endometriosis?

No but I have very painful periods and was checked. I had a partially blocked tube **pregnancy mentioned going forward** and after my doctor unblocked it I ended up pregnant on my own the following cycle. I waited 4 months after my miscarriage to go to IVF (honestly, if it wasnt for the lack of time with my disagnosis I dont think Id be trying IVF) and my FSH has also jumped up. Your doctor will want to take that fsh again. Every cycle is different and high fsh, unless there is an under laying issue, will usually return back to normalin a cycle or two (from my experience). In the last year Ive had fsh as low at 6 and as high as 16. It wasnt until month to month of 13s and 14s I was offically a DOR patient omw to POF. Thaf happened January of last year. Sometimes our cycles are so out of whack just because of something stressful. Visit your fsh next month and see what it comes back at the good news for you is that endo has been proven to be a treatable road block. Key word is treatable. Who knows about how easy it will be. Will you go back to your doctor for a final fsh before stims are ordered?

Nolimit I didn't know that about fsh. He never mentioned redrawing it. He's already given me a protocol and my meds have been ordered. He cycles a group each month but the deadline is tomorrow for this cycle so ill fall in the next group. We completely skipped iui as he didn't think it would work for us. I'm so sorry for your loss. How long have you been TTC?

Well that makes a lot of sense then!!! If the deadline is tomorrow then he would, as you told me via pm, already have ordered a med list for you I'm assuming, if your clinic is like mine, they'll still have you come in on the cd 3 for fsh, lh, prog, est. and to check your follicle count. My RE's office calls me that afternoon, reads down the list of results, explains how it will affect the cycle (good or bad) and then we decide that day if we want to move forward or not. In fact, my clinic gives us 3 or 4 options to convert to IUI or timmed intercourse based on how the cycle progressed. FSH is tricky. One elevated FSH doesn't mean much, so at this point I wouldn't worry about it.
