Improving my chance of a successful cycle

I am trying IVF one more time. This will be our 4th fresh cycle (and we did one frozen). I am 36 (37 in Jan). Hopefully we will start the process mid December. I have a DS from our first IVF cycle (he just turned 4). So I am wondering what I could do to improve my chance of success. Reading everythi...

Re: Summer Board 2011

BFN for me.... this is the end of our IVF journey.

Thanks for all of the support and prayers. I wish everyone the very best of luck and I will continue to keep up with this board to see all of the BFP's I know are coming.

Re: Summer Board 2011

I forgot how long the 2ww is.. and it has only been a week. I am doing good. Life went back to normal on Monday (I was on bedrest for 4 days) so now we just wait, wait and wait some more.

How early have some of you tested after a 3dt? I thinking about POAS Friday or Saturday. My transfer was 7/14.

Re: Summer Board 2011

My RE suggests 1 full day of bedrest (only get up to use restroom) and then 2 - 3 days of bedrest where I can shower and eat dinner with family.

I can tell from all of the posts that RE's suggest different things. I am already going crazy in bed. We will see how long I last...

Ghost Quick Question: Expiration Date

I have some follistim that expired on 05/2010. The pharmacist said that he felt it was okay to use now. What are your thoughts about using it now? Is it okay....

Re: Ghost.. Quick Question

I guess it is a mute point now. I just heard from my doctor and they no longer have his frozen sperm. How long do clinics usually keep it?

Ghost.. Quick Question

My first IVF cycle was Dec 2007. We are now thinking about trying again. I was wondering how long can sperm be frozen and still be "good". If my husband's sperm was frozen in 2007, would it be okay if we had to use it this summer?
