IVF Support

Postby Yellow578 » Tue Dec 06, 2016 3:52 pm

Hi all - we're going through our first cycle of IVF. We are in the states and this is 100% of out pocket for us. Unfortunately that means at 25K loan and additional paperwork to the already tons just for going through IVF. Just wanted chat in general about this stressful and financially burdensome process with others in the same boat or hear success stories!

I just came off of birth control pills (Took them for 3 weeks) and start my injections tonight. I'll be doing 200 Menopur and 300 Gonal F. I've done Menopur before but not Gonal F. Hopefully I don't have a reaction to it as I'll be traveling for work and doing the injections. Ugh. Oh, I'm continuing to take CoQ10, vitamin D, DHEA, and regular prenatals and starting to take baby aspirin. Has anyone been taking baby aspirin but drinking alcohol? I have a few holiday parties and don't want to completely not drink. :)

Also, I didn't realize how long the process was and that after retrieval they have to wait potentially up to two cycles!!

How's everyone else doing?
