i'm also new to IVF after 3 failed IUI..they don't seem to work much as i've seen on this site. my biggest issue was stress i think, but now i'm on vacation for 4 months...and hoping that will help things. i posted on june/july cycle but most folk there are further along than me. i had a mock transfer today and had 2 cysts - i may have ovulated thru the BCP. i hate the idea of these BCP as it seems to get rid of any remote possibility of a natural pregnancy. i guess the cyst might just delay my stims. i'll be doing gonal-F, menopur, Ganirelex. can't wait to start...
good luck to all. i've been addicted to this site since i saw it

another update from me. these past few days have been a whirlwind-appts every morning for U/s and E2 levels. E2 has been rising steadily and my doc is happy with it. 2 more follies decided to grow but they're really not at the optimal level. ( 14.5 and 11.5mm)
I had to make the decision today if I want to go ahead with my 2 mature ones( both 18 plus mm)+ the other 2 iffy ones or cancel this cycle.
And I've decided to go ahead!!! I know I may be wrong and lose all my money( and faith?!) but I'm going ahead anyways- I've been stimmed as best as I could and the dr feels i may show a similar response the next time too since I am a poor/slow responder!
So ladies, I'm doing it- wish us luck, my ER is Wed morning.
lots of luck to you all, wherever you are in your journey...

Maybebaybe - on my first cycle I responded poorly and had 3 follies prior to EC - they retrieved 2 eggs - both fertilised but unfortunately did not stick
