Well... it's hello and good-bye for me again... It's the 4th month in a row that this happens to us... we try to organize everything, get the medication, change our schedule, get the tests done, get our spirits up... and then something happens and we just can't get started!... This time it was my FS...

Hello ladies! Just thought I'd pop in and see how you're all doing. Looks like most of us are cycling around the same dates, eh? I have a question, though: some of you seem to know in advance when you are scheduled for ER... how is this possible? or is it just an estimation? You see, in my case, it ...

Well hello everyone! I am at the final stage of BCPs, hopefully my AF will arrive on 7 or 8/5, then if my day 2 tests (FSH/E2) are good, I can start with a short protocol (gonal-f 375 + menogon 2 vials) around the 9th or 10th May. I am very anxious to get going again... on the other hand, I am much ...

Dear Lisa L, Life is full of crossroads... everytime you reach one, you have to make a decision... I don't believe in good and bad choices, I think we choose whatever feels right for us at the time, based on the circumstances (that are never the same). Stress is something I have been trying to fight...

Dear Lisa L, I think here you will find a lot of people who know what you are talking about... I have been through 4 ivf attempts (1 was not completed) and 2 natural cycles since March 2005, and I think I understand your point... Every single time I feel like I am trying to juggle everything in my l...

Hey Green, I was also diagnosed with extensive endometriosis 4 y ago, and underwent laparotomy (open surgery) to remove a number of large cysts. After that, I had 6 months of Arvekap injections. I did have some side-effects, which were hot flushes, headaches, night sweats and lots of nerves (most pr...

Well hello again! Jeni as 032323 already mentioned, I will start DR on the 2nd day of my cycle in late May, and provided my FSH/E2 are both where they should be (which was not the case this month, grrrr!!..), I will start on the 3rd day with the stimming. I am sooooo looking forward to this... Must ...

Hi LucyC, Sorry to hear about your polyps... I had a big one myself 2 years ago (it was actually blocking the entrance to my left fallopian tube) and had it removed with hysteroscopy. I underwent general anaesthesia (as it was an operational procedure) and when I woke up 15 mins later, I honestly di...

AHA! I have just realized this must be the right thread for me to post into... I have just joined the April/May buddies, but as we plan to start DR+stimming (short protocol) after 20/5, I guess this is the right place to be! I am so happy Nicki had this "early" idea! I just wish time could fly until...

Hello ladies! I was supposed to be half-way through a short protocol by now, but due to high E2 my doctor cancelled the cycle last week, so we never actually started. Next attempt is planned to start around 20 May, so it seems I will be more of a May-June buddy! Anybody else starting this late?? (it...
