Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

LauraN - What does it mean to get organized? I got second shipment today. How do I get organize?

AFM - I noticed in my schedule that the baseline ultrasound is on the first or second day of my period. OMG, really? I guess doctors are used to this but I am mortified!!

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Cyn- congrats on starting your shots. When we started the IVF process, I was under the impression it was one shot per day. I was really shocked when someone told me they had to do 5. I am still in denial  LauraN – What did the BCP do to you last time? I had never been on the BCP (NEVER!). I started...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Me again. REALLY freaking out now. This is what's going on with the drugs... (FYI. I am covered through United Healthcare and have to buy the drugs through their prefered supplier i.e. Medco) 3/5: Hospital faxed prescription to MDR and ask me to initiate shipping. I call right away to initiate shipp...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Thanks for the tips! I've told one person at work (not my boss) because it doesn't really matter. I am in consulting and my management doesn't care when or what I am doing as long as I get it done. I am accountable to clients - my boss knows very little about my day to day job. There will be people ...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

*Knock Knock* Is this where one start? :) I've been lurking for a while! I started my first IVF cycle today with the birth control pill so I thought it would be a good time to join in officially. Questions for everyone... #1 How did you manage your appointments (ultrasounds, blood work, etc) with yo...

Mock transfer?

I don't remember my doctor mention doing a mock transfer. When do they happen? Are they always required?

Since I am having a laparoscopy, is it possible he can get similar information (measurements?) without doing a mock transfer? Thanks!

Saline sonogram and spotting (before!)

Hi everyone, My saline sonogram is scheduled this Friday. It will be day 5 of my cycle so I might have some mild spotting. Is that going to be OK or will the doctor reschedule? I am in a bit of a tricky situation since I ovulate on CD 11 so only a couple of days to actually do the sonogram and they ...

Uterine issues

Hi everyone, I have a question that I can't seem to find an answer for on Dr.Google. What kind of uterine issues may lead to not being able to get pregnant, even with surgery? A few years ago, my appendix leaked and caused my tubes to be blocked. It didn't occur to me until I started the IVF process...
