Re: Summer cycle group

Tammy - I'm on Day 8 now, but because it's my first cycle, they decided to take the slow and steady approach. I also have to do PGD, so I'm guessing by doing it this way, they thought they'd get more eggs considering half of them will be unusable due to a disorder. I'm wondering if they did a differ...

Re: Summer cycle group

Franny - I read the previous posts and although I'm new, please know that I'm rooting for you and feel for you. Lauren - think POSITIVELY. Maybe it's different this time because this time it will WORK!! Didi - I might have to hop on the organization train. They've upped my dosages and now I don't k...

Re: Summer cycle group

On Day 5 we get ...

Re: Summer cycle group

Hi All, I'm completely new to not only this board, but to IVF. This is my first cycle and we're going for IVF with PGD between a doctor here in Los Angeles and ReproGenetics in NJ. I started my stims on Monday (decreased to 5 units of Lupron, 150 Gonal-f, and Menopur). I'm already nauseous and tired...
