Hi - hoping to connect with other IVF first-timers or people with IVF experience who can provide support. I am a single (divorced) woman about to undergo IVF to have a child on my own. No DH just me. I am waiting for my period to start so I can begin the meds - I will be using a combination of Gonal/Bravelle (the Gonal is super expensive even with my co-pay and nurse had some extra Bravelle so she said I could start on that and then order more based on how things go), Ganirelix, trigger HCG and then Crinone from the retrieval on. I’m very nervous and the process hasn’t started yet. If anyone has experience with these specific medications and can comment regarding the side effects I would greatly appreciate.

Lapr/Hyst surgery revealed problems with fallopian tubes so RE recommended IVF rather than IUI
11/25 or 11/26 - anticipated baseline/cycle start
