Hi there and welcome.

A lot of hospitals require a 3 month gap between a full IVF cycle and just one AF if you go into a FET cycle.

There are one or two girls, however, who have been told that they don't have to wait any longer than the one AF between any cycles.

The reason my hospital suggests 3 months is so that your body has a chance to recover from all the drugs, your ovaries can return to normal and generally you and your body have time to recover.

If you have any doubts, have a chat with your hospital and ask them what their protocol is.

I wish you every bit of luck and hope that you are cycling soon.
