All About Round 2

Our second cyle (round 2) is a form of IVF called “Frozen Embryo Transfer.”  As mentioned previously, we have 6 embryos in cryopreservation (frozen in storage).  We hope that they will be able to thaw 2 ideal embryos to transfer into the uterus on February 9, 2009.  This round is easier because I do not have to grow all of the eggs and have them retrieved like the first cycle.  I still have to take several medications/shots to support the cycle: I will have daily lupron injections from 1/08-2/5; estrogen patches for a month; an array of antibiotics 2/6-2/9; and progesterone injections (the devil) from 2/6 until at least 2/23 or longer if I am pregnant.

IF this cycle is successful, then here are some important dates:
