Hi everyone, first time posting here! About me: 34, DH 35. Doing IVF because of blocked tubes from stage IV endometriosis. Only one egg producing ovary due to past surgery that removed too much ovarian tissue. DH has no issues on his end. This will be my first IVF cycle starting mid-June (AF due 6/14) but I have done 2 egg retrievals in the past. We will be making embryos with the frozen eggs as well as fresh eggs retrieved this cycle, and banking embryos since I have to have another risky endo surgery before we do a FET. Will likely do at least one more IVF cycle this summer probably 2 depending on how many PGS tested embryos we get. Luckily for this process I have very short cycles and have stimmed very quickly in the past (triggered day 6 last time). As for pre-stim protocol I am not on BCP but I have been put on an estrogen dot and have been taking 600mg coq10, royal jelly and dhea. Upped my dose of coq10 since my last retrievals so hoping it will have a positive result! What have you all done to prepare—anything I should add in the next few weeks?! I got bloods this past day 2 and my estrogen was nice and low and fsh was 6.8, which was very encouraging as it was as high as 13 back in 2015 when I was 30. So hoping my eggs have not declined more with age yet... Glad to be on this journey with you all—much love and positive energy during this process!
Hope that these videos help!
