And the IVF Cycle Begins :O

So on Day 12 of my last cycle, I experienced my LH surge. The center nurse instructed I start wearing the Climara patch 8 days later replacing it every 2 days. So here’s what the IVF cycle looked like through Day 12:

Day 25/Day 1: full menstrual flow

Day 2: Monitoring begins at the center. Bloodwork, Ultrasound and Consents (hubby came with me today) Results: uterine lining still requires shedding. Do not start stimulation meds yet. Instead inject 1 cartridge of Cetrotide SQ.
