I am not doing any suppression or priming for my cycle. I dont know if I should be worried about that. My protocol is antagonist so my RE said with my age and good reserve tests I shouldn't need to do any of those things... although everywhere I read people did at least birth control or lupron before a cycle starts??

UGH!

g_ant_t Do you know what units yours was measured in?
Hey MNelson! Sounds like we have almost an identical timeline/protocol! I am on CD1, I am also doing the ganirelix protocol (antagonist) and Doctor said I didn't need BCP. I expect my next period at the end of June and will start my stims then! My Doctor said it was up to me if I wanted BCP before my cycle- if my cycles were irregular. He said since my cycles are pretty regular that I didn't need the BCP.

I am 30 and had a really great antral follicle count. Go in for my Day 3 bloods tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Ashley that is awesome! I just turned 30 as well, like just last week! That is crazy that we will have such a close timeline, protocol, and hopefully similar successful outcome!
I don't go in to do my bloods until CD2 of the cycle I am starting stims. On CD1 I call in, CD2 go for bloods and ultrasound, and then CD3 start stims if all goes well on CD2!

Let me know how yours is going to go! I haven't had an AFC since August last year, but back then it was in the 20s so hopefully still just as good.I know my FSH was low and my AMH was at the med-high level for normal so I was happy with that. All I hope is that they are good QUALITY eggies in there. I have been taking supplements for the past 4 months and acupuncture so I am really hoping that helps!

Hey MNelson- Well I had to go in for day 3 tests today because I needed updated AMH,FSH, LH and Estradiol labs. I am doing a multiple cycle with a guarantee so I need to "qualify" with normal labs before I can be accepted into the program.

Nurse put me on BCP, take my first dose tomorrow. LOL I decided to take the BCP because the nurse told me that if I didn't take the BCP we are essentially at the mercy of my body for when AF shows up to start stimming. Using BCP, its pretty much controlled and they can plan things better. They said I should get a withdrawal bleed after the last dose of BCP and ER is looking at like July 1-3rd. So now I am a little further behind you

My estimated ER date is July 6th so not too different now! Of course, thats if my cycle all pans out. Which of course, it could be the one cycle that isn't consistent, because why be consistent when I need you to be! haha

I'm late to this group! Hi ladies !

We've got two factor infertility: I've got endometriosis & hubby has random (most of the time) LSC/motility.

Last IVF cycle -> 20 eggs, 10 retrieved, 4 mature, 2 fertilized, 1 made it through the night. DD born @ 36 weeks October 2015! No frosties. So here we go again!

Very fortunate to have a "funded" cycle or we couldn't do this again. We pay for drugs & administrative fees.

Starting 450 IU Gonal-f tomorrow. Last time it took a while for some eggs to respond to the drug (hence so few mature eggs), so hitting them hard this time. Short cycle!

Baby dust to all of you on your journey!!!

Hi Rosina! Good luck with the start of meds! Do you anticipate egg retrieval in a couple weeks? Doing a fresh transfer?

Hi MK! Thanks! One down.

Yes, expecting to do a retrieval in about nine days. Nervous about them "stopping" again during the procedure. Last time they said I looked like I was in too much pain. I need to practice my tough face.

We'll see how things are progressing on Friday & hopeful to have a better idea of timelines. Looking to do a fresh cycle & fingers crossed for a backup this time.

As it's funded only one transfer is allowed unless I have 3 failed transfers, then they can put two in.

I have 14 follicles this time.

What's involved in priming? Is it mostly just control of your cycle through BC?

Hey Rosina, so exciting to hear. I love how ontario started funding IVF... if only the rest of Canada could catch up! Ugh.
Wishing you so much luck for this cycle, keep us updated on how all the stims are going and how the follicles respond. Were you on anything for your last cycle or this one for the endo? I have seen some girls mention steroids to reduce inflammation, but my clinic won't do them because they think they do more harm than good. I see you had a successful first cycle with a DD, so wondering if you needed them back then at all?
