    @missalina; an antagonist cycle is a short cycle (yay!) where you start your stims a few days after CD1 of AF, then a few days later you start orgalutran (which stops you ovulating).

    I take a while to stim, so I'm usually 12-14 days of stim injections but it's all over and done with about 2-3 weeks after CD1.

    A long down cycle has you on the pill for 2-3 weeks from CD1 or 2 of AF, you then stop the pill and start lucrin (I think you can use other inhibitors, but lucrin is the one my FS uses) and then a few days later you start stims. All up it's about 6 weeks from starting the pill to transfer so it seems like forever! A long down cycle is usually used for older women or those that don't produce many eggs/get cysts etc. It's something about shutting down the ovaries first.

    I've done 2 antagonist cycles and two long down cycles, not really sure if one worked better than the other!

    Good luck.

    The FS thinks i'm too high risk for OHSS so likely to freeze all, unless my body behaves really well, they may transfer in same cycle but she doubts it

    @bel2466 don't worry about it too much. Lots of women on these threads have FS who won't do a fresh transfer and will only freeze all and then transfer once the body has had a chance to recover from all the stim meds.

    Hi bel and miissalina.
    Good luck with your cycles. Starting ivf is exciting and nerve wracking. Fingers crossed for you both.
    Bel, I did an antagonist cycle and due to high progesterone before egg collection, we were told we'd have to do a freeze all aswell. It's not great knowing that you have to wait and those cycles in between the stim cycle and FET were hard but we were lucky enough for that first transfer to be our first ever bfp.
    As chiefs said, some drs will only do an FET while lots do prefer them over a fresh transfer.

    Thanks everyone I hope we can finally start our much wanted little family but only time will tell, @Chiefsgirl , thank u for explaining the difference there's so much info and it always seems to make more sense when someone other than the specialist tells you about it 😊 I don't think my FS mentioned the other type of cycle it's good to no there's other options

    Hi ladies, hope you all don't mind me dropping by and reading up on your journeys. So looking forward to seeing all positive stories come from this thread this year. Have the feeling 2014 is going to be a great year for all. I have everything crossed for you all.

    AFM- currently 12 + 5 weeks. Had the nt scan this week and it was truly amazing to see our little one growing and changing so much. Still sick everyday and it doesn't feel like it's going to end anytime soon. All I want to eat is Vegemite on any form of carb.

    Hope everyone is well.

    Great news Mieke, glad bub is growing strong, hope the MS settles soon!

    Another question ladies...my health fund told me they will rebate on some of the ivf costs that are incurred as a day patient eg. at egg collection but they need an itemised receipt with item numbers? Is this right? Will WFC provide this for me? Is it much of a rebate? Sorry for the 20 qu's I'm trying to roughly budget for our out of pocket expenses TIA xx
