Question on type of prenatal vitamins used to prepare for IVF - which over the counter prenatal do you use? Do you think it’s worth ordering more expensive ones like theralogix?

Theralogix is NSF certified and the reason why I used them and still do.


I did use theralogix for a while mainly I was looking for folate in its raw form vs synthetic. I’m now using Megafood which is also pricey and tastes bad but lots of good stuff in it.

Please, I am looking for ideas to motivate a virtual class. We want to set up a rewards program. However, we don’t want to reward for what the are supposed to complete. We’re looking for above and beyond. Example; helping a fellow student with technical support. We also thought of homework passes & lunch with a teacher, because we are a virtual school independent study program. We see students for a short amount of time on zoom. It takes a lot of work to set up the videos and lessons.

I know this might be a controversial question, but in the hope that it could help someone out… does anyone know of a space where you can give/donate your unused/untouched/not expired fertility medication? I have so much left over and I know so many women pay out of pocket. Please let me know if there is some type of exchange that exists. Again, I understand why someone may be hesitant to take the medication but I would like to check. It seems insane to throw away the gonal F pen in my fridge 🙏🏼

Any NYC fishies with benefits through Progyny?


Im 29, husband is 28. We just recently got married. Ive been unsure if i want kids my whole life but as time has gone on, ive felt more of the desire. My husband definitely wants at least one child. We both arent “ready” now though. Got my AMH tested - its 2.01 , FSH 5.9. My doctor said its nothing to worry about but i know it goes down with time. She didnt recommend i go to a clinic or freeze my eggs. I dont want to rush into motherhood but i also worry about waiting & the risk that poses


What are some of the normal FSH, HCG and Estradiol and AFC levels in non-pregnant females... (we are TTC)


My husband and I have been TTC for 6 months. I’m 28 and he’s 32. I know they say you should wait 1 year until you see a doctor.

We want to see a doctor soon so they can help us sooner than later.
I’m concerned that doctor may be dismissive towards us and say “come back later”. But I’ve known family members who said they wished they saw doctor earlier as some issues can be spotted and fixed easily.

I’m interested in hearing others experience on when you first went to see a doctor.


I’m a 30 yr old woman in NYC who is considering freezing my eggs. Does anyone have any recommendations for:
-where to do this
-what to consider

I have insurance. Affordability is important always but I also don’t want to be super risky with it.

I switched careers and am not sure when I would want to have a baby. Also, my partner had to have their semen frozen so just making sure we’re covered on this front too.


How do you respond to people asking you when you are having kids? I had a miscarriage a couple years ago and am currently struggling with infertility. It’s so painful when people ask that question so I’m looking for a go-to response to change the subject.


Another two week wait after another chemical. Prayers appreciated and prayers to each of you. We’re in this together and there is still hope.

Friend: Instead of IVF, you should try freezing them.
Me: Freezing them?
F: The eggs. It works.
M: That’s part of the IVF process. Optional, but still IVF.
F: No, my other friend did the freezing instead. It worked really well. She’s already pregnant. Just sayin.
M: ...
F: It’s an option for you to think about.


Anyone in need of medication donation?

Pls dm me...

I should have extra gonal f and menopur and some others


Give me your best vitamins and supplements for improving egg count and quality. I’m “advanced” (39) with no kids, did egg freezing a few years ago with a pretty low count, and want to try again.

I know you’re not doctors but I think this collective community has so much knowledge. I am already taking iron, fish oil, and D3.

Went in for my second ultrasound today and no heartbeat at 8 weeks after hearing it at 6.5. Dr. is advising a D&C with genetic testing. Thinking about getting a second scan just to be sure in a few days. Anyone go through this and had a good result? I’m trying to be realistic here but devastated to say the least.


Just had a negative pregnancy test today. I’ve been on Clomid and Progesterone and the hormones are making me miserable. We’ve been trying for 2 years and have had 2 miscarriages. The thought of repeating this month after month, then hoping that we don’t go through another loss when we do manage to get pregnant feels so daunting and overwhelming right now. I don’t know how to continue to stay positive :-(


I found out today that our partially stimulated FET failed. We did Letrozole, Ovidrel trigger shot, Endometrin suppositories & Estrogen.

My one tube is blocked & other ovary had surgery & so doesn't respond well.

My RE now wants to do a Hormonal ERA to prep for the next FET. She wants to PIO now if I'm okay with it. I'm kinda scared about PIO but ready if it's gonna help.

1. Is there anything else we should be doing before the next FET?
2. My lining this cycle was 12mm. Is that too thick?


Anyone just so over work while doing all this ivf crap. I am so unmotivated and I don’t know if I hate my job or I am just burnout out from both. It’s been 2 years in this ivf world and I am tired. I wish I didn’t have to work.
