We were given the green light to do our FET with my next period. My prolactin levels were checked this week (I just quit breastfeeding beginning of January) and the levels were low enough for my RE to approve the go ahead for a FET. Yayyyyy! Fingers crossed this works!

Hey Wishing...this is really sweet of you to just be an ear for those going through something you've done successfully. I know it's really nice to be able to ask some questions of peers before Doctors sometimes, but as I'm the first person in my social circle to do IVF, I don't have any buddies to turn to. I really appreciate you starting this thread.

DH and I have been TTC since about this time last year. At 9 cycles, I went to an OB (one I had never been to, since my previous OB wouldn't take me seriously that I knew in my gut that TTC wouldn't come easily, and she wasn't willing to talk about it before 12 months had come and gone) and the new OB wanted to get DH sperm analysis at a local RE. We went in for those results and that RE took both of our histories and said that we would need more help than just a round of Clomid (which is what the new OB had suggested) So we did Clomid + IUI. When my 14 dpIUI revealed a bfn, DH and I talked it over briefly and discovered that we both felt the same way about how to progress...that neither of us felt optimistic about investing out of pocket money (no fertility coverage in our insurance) into a treatment with a low % of success...which feels weird, and almost fraudulent...I know lots of people have success with IUIs and I hate the thought of IUI hopefuls reading what I'm writing and feeling like I don't believe in it...but for us, if we're having to "invest" money into our conception, we want to invest in something that has a 50%+ success rate than an 8-20% success rate. A decision I feel guilty about for some reason...maybe because there are lots of people who can't afford these treatments, or wouldn't have the option of anything but IVF and it's something we're electing to do early because we can?

Anyway, I know there are a few different "Time lines" of IVF, as far as how the cycle plays out...what was your cycle like? I feel like I don't have a great understanding of what to expect and I'd like to be semi prepared when I go to my consultation on Wednesday.

Thanks again.
Me, 32; Mild Endo, cystic ovaries, wonky hormones
DH, 32; High count, low motility % and low morphology
TTC #1 since Summer '15

Hi Puddles,

As I set and read your thread I know the frustrating. This Is why I love this site because we all can relate to one another in some sort of way. This is a long rocky/stressful journey and I hope you and dh have success once it's all done and over with. However, im not to sure on your question are you asking once I started ivf (medications) or b4? When you go Wednesday is that for ivf consult?
