Hello everyone,
Hello Ghost,

while reading a lot of posts here, i noticed that most of the ladies take BCP (to supress ovulation as they say) the month before cycling.
well, my RE never put me on BCP , he always told me to go the first or second day of my period to have an u/s and (if everything was ok) to start stimulation injections on cycle day 2 ---> for antagonist protocol.

is it that ok?? Ghost??

ps: i never had problems, always made it to ER and ET with good quality embies, but never a BFP.

BCP is not necessary before an IVF cycle. Some clinics use them that way and some do not. The main reason to use them is to get the patient's cycle synchronized the clinic schedule. Some say the use of BCP before a cycle reduces the success rate.
Note: I am not an MD and not an expert.

thanks Ghost for ur reply.

my RE also says that he thinks that the use of BCP reduce the success and this is why he doesnt like me to use it the cycle before ivf.
