Myself and my husband have been given a date for our Information appointment where I am told we will commence treatment - I.e I will receive the drugs to suppress my cycle.
I understand the process from that point on however there is one thing that is unclear. The drugs you take to suppress your cycle are taken for up to two weeks and then you take another drug that encourages your ovaries to produce eggs. During which time you are monitored with scans and blood tests. The thing I am unclear about is the time line. Are the suppressant drugs taken for two weeks and then at the end of that period you commence the next set of drugs for up to 12 days or is this the same period ( do you take them both at the same time?) Just a little confused by this.
I know it's silly but I haven't told my job that we are having this treatment and I am trying to manage things as much as possible and so just really want to know how long the whole process takes from the first batch of drugs to the transfer. I want to take some time out post transfer and so need to try and factor this in on top of the scans and so on. I have a fairly demanding job and so it's tricky and feel that telling my boss I am trying for baby will not be received in a positive way (very career focused environment). I also am getting my head around everything and try to be realistic that this may work and it may not and so the less people I tell to begin with, the less people I have to share any potential heartache with.
Any guidance you can offer would be appreciated
