Awe man, bummer but excited for another round for you. What meds do they have you taking? Looks like we will be close, I'm on bcp now and if all goes well the RE wants to do a retrieval some time the week of March 13, which means I should be starting meds the last part of Feb/early March. I'm not sure of the exact plan yet, just know about the March 13 date.

Yeah... we're going to be cycle buddies again :jump:

I'm so happy you're jumping straight back in and have a plan pencilled in!
My down reg starts on Feb 24th and then stims start 2 weeks after that (day 7 of my next cycle... so approx 2 weeks after that will be retrieval. I'm guessing that will be week of the 20th March but all depends how well I respond.

My doc doesn't do bcp otherwise I'd be on it now! My down reg treatment is called Decapeptyl, same family as Lupron and I have no idea what to expect from that but I'll soon find out.

I'm not going to join the Feb IVF board because they're all well into their cycles now but hope to join one for March!

Excited for us both!!

HI Emma - I finally got my schedule and protocol. We'll be doing the same one we did this last round with the microdose lupron/tamoxifen/low dose hcg, we had a pretty good response with it...as in we had more than one egg :rofl: I'll stop the bcp on Feb 26, go in for baseline, then start meds on March 2, first monitor scan on March 13 and if all looks good, retrieval will be some time that week.

Hi Shannon... i was hoping to hear from you once you had your protocol! How exciting! Will you do a fresh transfer this time around or are you banking again?

I got my prescription for 28 Decapeptyl (same family as Lupron) it costs €324 here in Germany so I emailed the pharmacy in France and it only costs €175 for the same prescription INCL postage! When you have to pay everything out of pocket, that's a big saving! I'll be sure to get the rest of my meds from there too!

On another note, our refurb kicked off yesterday, so much noise and dusty I'm sure it will all be worth it!

How's our mums and babes doing?

I'm jealous your starting the renovation lol. We are hoping to start within the next few months, dh wants to finish up a few things before we get started. And that's great about the pharmacy, you're right every bit helps!

I'll know more when we go in for our baseline, but my guess is the RE will want to freeze then do the transfer next cycle like we did last time so we can get my lining in shape. Right now, I don't plan to do egg banking again, I don't think I'm ready emotionally to handle going through multiple retrievals again. We'll just see how we do this time and if we can get 2-3 follicles, we will do the retrieval and move on to a transfer, otherwise we may cancel. I'm hoping all the supplements I've been taking will help.
