    Default Ideal amount of time between stimulated cycles

    I Have just completed 2 back to back stimulated cycles. One antagonist, one long down reg. I actually got double the amount of eggs in the second but as I am banking and froze early, we really can't say much regarding quality at this point. We didn't get a great fertilisation rte which to me suggests an egg issue, even though we did icsi. I am considering doing another, otherwise my FS is away until October. It's possible my ovaries won't be recovered anyway and I may need to wait anyhow.

    just wondering about what people have been told or think about what is ideal time to wait in between cycles. I'm currently emotionally ok and physically just have the usual ivf bloat that I don't stress about anymore as I've done enough cycles to realise it just goes away by itself about a month afterwards.

    Ive noticed that new research suggests it may actually be beneficial to go back to back, although I got 19 eggs on Monday and so maybe my ovaries might be a little crazy at the moment. I'm back at work and fine though. I actually feel good, it's amazing what a few drug free days will do for you.

    anyway, interested to hear what people think. Thanks in advance.

    My FS at Genea makes their patients have 1 month off between stims. He likes them to have one full normal cycle in between, not sure why sorry just what they told me after my first failed stim in April. I am pretty sure Monash were the same.
    Did you check with Wazza, what he thinks is best?
    Glad to hear your feeling well after your couple of back to backs. I hope you enjoy your trip to the snow
