    Default Has anyone started injections on DAY 5?

    I'm ready to start my IVF cycle but the clinic I'm with wants me to start injections (Gonal F) on DAY 5 (because they're not open over the weekend) - Isn't that a bit late?

    I've just signed up for Primary IVF in Sydney and their service has been pretty poor so far. I often have to wait an extra hour or two later than my appointment time and they took a long time to find my blood results. I don't want to undergo another treatment if it's going to be an inferior one (I've already had 5 unsucccessful IVFs).

    PLEASE REPLY BACK WITH ADVICE ASAP as I have to decide whether to start on Monday.

    Thanks

    On a long regulation pill start cycle I usually start my injections on day 5 after my period (start of injections is considered day1 after that) but it probably doesn't matter as much because I would be on synarel which suppresses follicle growth.

    If you've had 5 unsuccessful rounds somewhere else and are unhappy it might be time to change clinics though.

    Default Thanks

    for your response! This is a new clinic I've chosen. And it's on a short cycle so it's straight to Gonal F. It doesn't sound good to start on day 5 maybe I'm better trying naturally this month?? I'm 43.

    We've always started on day 3 (3 fresh cycles), but have just changed to a new clinic and I noticed that my treatment plan says start day 5. It's an antagonist cycle. It could be to do with the dosages, but I have no idea.

    I've done an antagonist cycle starting injections on day 5 before. That alone wouldn't concern me but the other issues you're having with poor service and disorganisation are a worry... I hope the cycle works out from here on in. Good luck!

    That's a relief that day 5 seems to be normal. Thanks!!
