My period arrived yesterday, which in many ways is a stroke of luck, in terms of starting my next (and probably last) ivf cycle. I had hoped to go in Sept, Oct and Nov but plans were scrapped because of a cyst and unfavorable hormone levels.
I was happy it arrived yesterday because there is a brief window of time for me to do treatment this month, I'm due to go abroad at the end of Jan for work, meaning my next chance to do treatment would be april/May. I don't want to put it off that long - I was hoping to complete it long ago.
I went into my clinic this morning expecting something to throw a spanner in the works in some way or another - I've come to realise there is no planning or controlling this process, and to expect the unexpected is a good strategy.
Even so I was nervous, it seems the cyst has gone and I'm waiting on a phone call to confirm the treatment protocol they will put me on. I'm hoping for full stimm short, but if hormones dictate they will advise a natural cycle. Got an annoying feeling it will be the latter.... But I guess you can't argue with what's in your blood.
Hey ho, things might be starting for me, but I'm feeling reserved... Got any words of encouragement for me??!
Much love to everyone here, hoping that 2019 brings lots of good things
