After re reading my question I realize it's hard to follow! Allow me to clarify!

I've read about women taking any number of meds and med-cocktails to prep for egg retrieval and then transfer...these meds, what they do and the differences between them are very foreign to me, as I've only taken Clomid and Estridol for my past IUI.

Can you give me a little insight into what goes into the before, during and after of a cycle where IVF is taking place in prep for it. What cycle days do you start taking which meds, when does egg retrieval happen, etc.

I feel like I'm still not wording this well, but hopefully you get what I'm saying!

Far as the medication goes everyobe is different. Everyone is montior closely and depending on how the body respond RE would know what protocol you will follow. They start us off with birth control pills and from then on yhey tell us what medication we take. I was givening like a little counter to follow. If you look where my signatures at you can see a how the process went. I hope I understood and answer correctly.

Welcome Dana,

Wow, So are the dr's calling this unexplained infertility ? The only questions that I was most worried about was: What is my success rate ?Of course the cost of ivf, medications, how often would you have to come into the office, Do you have to take time off work .....hope this help! When did they schedule for your first consult?

My consult is at the end of the month.Hmmm you could say unexplained but I do have one bad tube and I suffer from hypo so not really unexplained.
I don't work so I could go as often as they want.Im a bit nervous about the medications Bcs I did had 3 cycles with injectables and I responded pretty good with lower doses,we will only do one round of IVF so I don't want that many embryos Bcs I don't want to have to make the decision of giving up on them.Im so scared of a failure.Ty for taking the time to answer me.
