Hi to everyone who will join this group,
I would like to introduce myself and give you a little bit of my infertility journey.......
I have been TTC for approx 3 years now. My DH and I started the infertility process after we found out he had no sperm count. He had surgery to try to correct it, but that didn’t work. The doctor said it is a blockage behind the bladder and is too risky for surgery. The only option we had was IVF.
We did our 1st cycle last August. We had 21 removed, 18 viable, 7 fertilized and 2 were transferred on day 3 which resulted in BFN. The other 5 that were fertilized only 2 made it to blasts, which we froze. We did a FET in November but that resulted in BFN. So now we are at square one again. I will be doing my second IVF cycle this march. My ER should be around the 15th, if all goes well
I look forward to those of you who are cycling in march

I knew you needed to be here, but for some reason I was thinking you may have been on some meds already, which is why I didn't add you last night. Guess I was wrong. Oops! Adding you now.

Hello to Everyone!
I would love to join the group. I have been on FT for awhile, and I really love all of the support. Just a little background about me: Primary infertility for 5 years and **children mentioned**then our DS was born in 2005. We lost our second son, Jay, and had our DD in 2007.**end mention** I have had 5 IUI's in the past 15 months, two of them with injectables. After the 5th IUI, my RE decided to test my AMH and FSH levels. I wish he would of thought of that sooner. My FSH is 10, and my AMH is .48. I will be 35 next month, and am ready to start IVF. I switched RE's and have my first appointment this Friday. My egg retrieval will be in March. I am nervous and excited, and just praying that this will work. Baby dust to all!

Michele - Welcome to the group! I'm sorry for everything you have had to go through thus far. I hope this cycle is the last cycle you need. So, is this your first IVF cycle or have you had any in the past?

Hey. Not sure if I need to join this group or another one. My teaching class is schedule for March the 6th and as soon as I get AF in March (20th), I will start on Birth control pills. ET will be in April. So I am kinda in between. If this is not where I need to be please point me int he right direction.
And how do I make the little signatures about whats going on with me. Such as me 32 - Deminished Overian Reserve, DH - Low mobility, This will be our 1st IVF, to showw on all my post? Oh yeah, I am also doing a microflare protocol, using Bravelle, Repronex, and Lupron.
Hoping to get some responese and support! Thanks everyone in advance!

Star- This will be my first IVF cycle. We tried to go the IUI route, but were unsuccessful after five tries. I really hope this is it for us. If I can get enough eggs, we only have the money for one fresh cycle and a FET if needed. Keeping my fingers crossed, and looking forward to meeting my new RE on Friday. Glad to meet everyone!
