    Hello ILs,

    With failed clomids, failed multiple IUIs and failed TTC naturally, we have decided to go for an IVF route.
    I got my periods and Dr. told me to start taking birth control pills for 10 days and then call us when you get your periods? I have no other information. Dr. seems to busy and noone else at the clinic is telling me an entire process.
    I need to plan my personal time. Please tell me what happens next ? when the egg retrieval happen? When does PGS testing happen (I opted for this testing because Dr. said you should - in my case - not sure why - anyway my question is not about if I should do PGS or not)? How long does it take? When does implantation happen ?

    I am unable to understand anything. I need approximate timelines or steps . Please help.

    The doctor and your clinic should be giving you all this information. The doctor may be busy but a nurse should give you a printout of your protocol with the doses of medications, etc. You are going to be paying a lot of money and investing a lot emotionally. Insist on having all this information before you proceed.
    Depending on your protocol. you may be on brith control pills for up to 3 weeks, injections to stimulate egg growth for 7-12 days, egg retrieval after that, 5-6 days for embryos to grow, then they will biopsy embryos for PGS and freeze them. It can take up to 2 weeks to get the PGS results. Then you will be scheduled for a frozen embryo transfer.
    The PGS place had a person who explained the process.
    If you are not doing PGS, you can have a fresh transfer which will be day 5/6 after egg retrieval.
    But if it was me I would not proceed until I received all the answers to my satisfaction, before starting. Everyones protocol is different so the advice given here may not apply in your case.
