Cycle math

Today is day one. It was a 30 day cycle - is that good news? I'm not sure. Last month, it was 22 days. So, take the average and we are at 26 days which is my normal (at least before I started pumping drugs into my body).

I'm going to call the doctor today and delay starting the IVF cycle. I'm feeling good about that decision except the minor detail that at age 41, I probably shouldn't delay much... what can 26 more days do? Expel that last good egg?

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone! We'll be road tripping all over the state of California - those of you in CA, I'll see you on the 5!

Hi! I'm in the same boat as you - 41 and doing IVF. I think it's a good idea to wait until after the holidays to do IVF. It's pretty stressful. I just think there isn't anyway your first IVF isn't. I did the micro-dose flare protocol for my first IVF, and didn't stimulate so well. Technically, it's supposed to be for my age, but that's just throwing darts at protocols to figure out which is the best. IVF#1 redo for me in January/February!
