IVM? Anyone heard of IV Maturation?

i read an article today and wanted to see if yall had any more input on the topic. Have yall heard of IVM (in vitro maturation)? it looks like they only medicate for 3 days then retrieve immature eggs and mature them in the lab. I was thinking since my egg quality isn't too great, maybe this would b...

statsgoddess- just keep yourself hydrated for the day and dont go to the bathroom for 2 hours before the procedure and you should be fine. they will check you when you arrive and will let you know if it is full enough or if ya'll will have to wait a little longer. I am not going to lie... it is unco...

Hi girls. Sorry I went MIA for a few days. Looks like a lot of good posts, just cant read all of them until tonight. Friday was a hard day, I got an email from a friend telling the whole world that his wife is pregnant (they have only been trying a couple of months) and of course it included the US ...

CT- I lost my insurance coverage when DH lost his job so instead of inducing ovulation I had to watch it with a home test. I have never ovulated on my own (without the shots) and I finally did! It was almost as nice as getting a BFP on a HPT! dys- I did clomid for a long time before moving on to IVF...

Hi ladies. Its sure been a while. I just started my Femara last night. Hopefully this will work but I am definitely not getting my hopes up. I have been enjoying just being me again.

We have a consultation with my RE on March 13 to go over our options. I dont know if we will try again just yet in March, we may wait until April. It really depends on how much it is and what DH's situation is. Hopefully it won't be too long.

Have a good one ladies!

Going into the 2nd one we had already decided to take off a month or two from the fertility...

Rosario- stop taking tests... another 10 won't tell you anything. You are getting positives so just let that be that for now until tomorrow morning. You're starting to stress me out and I have barely been on the thread this week. :) Even if something happened, there would still be enough HCG in your...
