Hello! I am a June cycle I beleive. I just started AF yesterday and I have my first appt tomo with RE to start my first cycle. I will be starting BCPs hopefully tomorrow as well. I dont really know what to expect but im excited and feeling positive about this cycle as well. Hopefully this will be the cycle for both our BFPs.

Dh and I had 5 failed IUIs last year (3 clomid, 2 injectables) and we took a break for 4 months. Just getting back into the swing of things and this time for IVF.

Here's to hoping! Love and Babydust

Hello , a big welcome back, I too am a regular on here and we too are going for a 4th ivf starting 3rd june, my protocol and reasons for not working probably different to yours( I am older 41 years and only produce few eggs, although like you my first ivf did work but i had early miscarriage)Anyway we have the main thing in common, both wish this cycle to be the BFP one that stays there.
I have been taking dhea which is meant to help with egg quality and production, so only time will tell. I am on the short protocol, max dose of menopur and burserelin, and only get between 3-6 eggs, hopefully will produce that one good egg this time, thats all it takes. Both times that my previous other 2 ivf's failed , i bled form day 11-13 on the 2ww. Will be following your progress and will update when I begin my cycle beginning june time, my best wishes  to you both, melissaxx

Hi there,

I'm on my fourth cycle aslo. Hoping for ER on Monday. Not sure if it's going to go ahead because my scan yesterday showed that my left side is an odd shape. Have to go back for US on Friday. He did say not to make plans for Monday though, so here's hoping.

Mel4141 - was just wondering what dhea stands for. Like you, I'm 41 and only producing a few eggs each time. Anything to help egg quality, endo lining and everything else. Have proven that it only takes one egg because that's all I got last time. BFP proved that it worked but something went wrong somewhere else.

Hello, dhea is a hormone product(i'm from England and we cant get it here) so purchased off internet from canada, i've done my research and have nothing to lose using it going by my previous cycles, just want to maximise my slim chance of getting that "better" egg. Also most dr's in US and Canada and Australia reccommend it for older women with poor egg quality and production. If you google it and add fertility you can read more about it. This has to be our last ivf as we just have no more money, have spent over £16000 with out this cycle. I only had 1 egg the last 2 times to put back and cell division wasnt great so here's hoping for an improvement this final time in June. We did have a BFP ivf but endedin m/c, my very best wishes to and hope this will be your time too, look forward to your updates and progress, we're all here to support as WE know how extreamly herd the road is. melissaxx
