I'm just wondering how long it took from your first appointment, where it was stated that IVF was the course of action, to start your first cycle?

It took us a long time to get to the point of deciding definitely yes to ivf, but then after that was fairly quick, about 2 cycles to get organised.
Appt with FS to sign consent forms and plan exact protocol. A few weeks for blood tests, SA, ultrasounds etc. Then the nurse interview etc and then we were told to call on the CD1 of the cycle we wish to start.

We did a lot of these tests before starting OI. Do you think DH will have to do another SA and I have to do the other testing again?
What did the nurse interview entail?

It took us about 5 months to make the decision to do ivf - our fs wasn't convinced clomid would work for us but was happy to give it to us if we wanted. He gave me the script for clomid and then set up an appointment with the ivf nurse to discuss that option. After the nurse appointment I was adamant I did not want to do ivf so we went with clomid and had originally agreed to do 6 cycles before moving on to ivf. In the end we only did 4 cycles of clomid and it was a combination of being on school holidays (so good timing for me to have a few days off work) and a price reduction from the clinic that convinced me to move on sooner. I'm glad I did though, and I'm not really sure why I was so against it to begin with... I guess I so desperately wanted things to happen naturally, but now I figure on my future child's 18th birthday I'm not going to care less if they were conceived naturally or via ivf!
Once we made the decision to go ahead it was very quick. As we had already had the nurse's appointment to discuss everything all I had to do was call the clinic on day 1, pick up the meds and start!

I've already done three cycles of induction (with letrozole, though) and my previous FS had said that if the third cycle failed, we'd consider "next steps".
This is where I am at now, with my appointment tomorrow, but with a different FS. Just wondering if he also thinks "next steps" would be the best option, as to when everything would start for me.
Since it's CD1 for all of you, I'm guessing they'd have to prompt a cycle for me first, since I have irregular periods?
I REALLY don't want to be put on the pill since it mucks my body about, so would that mean an induction cycle instead?

Cinder, I hope you're feeling better.
Shrillian, I'm trying to remember dates etc but I think it was Dec I saw the doctor in, got a referral to the ivf clinic, had an appt with the nurses & at this stage was told they only had a March cycle left. DH & I were going overseas in March so we were advised May was the next for us. And I was put on the pill since late Feb/March to get ready for the May ivf cycle. We also had to redo DH's SA test along with all mine (yet another internal scan plus all bloods) which was annoying because it's all $$$...and results were the same as they were last time!
Del, I wish I knew my body that well It would be frustrating though especially when it's not giving you the signs youre after.
How are you going Phee?
Nattie, I'm sorry to hear. I have taken many bub hub breaks in the past & have found out they helped. Come back soon though
I'm so sorry if I've missed anyone, am on my phone.
I'm still in a bit of limbo. Still on the pill & waiting for my appt late April so I can have my ivf appt, get the meds & learn how to jab
