Has anyone used birth control ahead of the egg retrieval drug regimen so as to better ‘control’ the timing of the cycle? My previous clinic recommended it but my current clinic does not and I find that it creates a lot of uncertainty around the timing of the baseline appointment, a risk that falls on me entirely as I try to plan an egg retrieval amongst my many other plans and commitments. I’ve basically given up my holidays plans entirely 😔

I got a new job offer that I accepted and I’m planning on giving my notice next Tuesday when my manager is back from winter break.

Any tips on what to say to my boss when I tell her I’m leaving the company to help lessen the blow? Should I do it at a certain time of day to be more considerate?

Hi all, would love to get your opinion on an estimated market rate for a employee like me, as I’m thinking about asking for a raise in January but haven’t done this before.

1 YOE
TS/SCI Full-Scope Clearance

Been lead data scientist on team for 5+ months
2 AWS and Tableau cert (sorry had to throw that in there lol)

I know this is a tough task without all the context but I’m currently making $95k and that seems to be the lowest on my team.
