  • @kiki047 that is wonderful news about your embryos!

    @mvt2003 that is too funny. I think my H will be way too nervous to give me injections if we do IVF.

  • @kpearse99 That is basically our exact insurance situation. No limit to IUI's but no coverage for IVF. It's crazy. But I guess I shouldn't complain and keep on with the IUI's until something sticks. 

    @kiki047 Wonderful news! And thank you so much for your kind words. I don't feel brave a lot of the time, but I definitely think that everyone else on here totally is. Sometimes it takes someone else saying it for it to click.

    Hi ladies! Sorry for only lurking & not participating these two weeks. I will try joining earlier next week.

    (And sorry for jumping in & post questions without actual participation...)

    Is taking birth control pills before a stim cycle solely for scheduling purposes? Or there are medical reasons? My RE suggested me to take BC starting CD3 (today is CD1), but I really don’t want to be on pills while me and DH are enjoying Hawaii during what could have been my fertile window!

    edit: words

  • @pom9207 for my clinic it's both. BC helps controls hormones a bit and it allows the clinic to get you on their schedule. One of the nurses told me they can put you on BC anywhere from 18 days up to 35 days so that the IVF or FET schedule can be worked into their bookings. This also allows me the ability to adjust the schedule for my needs.

    For example, I'm going to be out of town the first weekend in March. If the timing came out to needing to do BW and US during those days, my clinic can just add a few days of BC to push the appointment to a day when I'm available.

    It might be different if you're doing a natural FET cycle instead of a medicated one.

    @kiki047 Ahhhh I just saw this! Thank you for sharing!!! Haha that’s exactly why I was a little bummed; I feel like it might ruin the romance  :D I saw my RE this afternoon and he said he is okay with either no BC or a very brief 10 day course of BC.

    I guess taking BC prior to a treatment cycle is more common than I thought!
