Hi Everyone,

I'm new to FF, here is a quick history and info of my journey so far. My name is Natalie and i am 29. At the age of 24 i had an ovarian cyst removed along with my left ovary, the cyst was a solid mass that they said was the size of a large melon or small baby, this was borderline cancerous. Everything was cleared up and i was having regular checks. in November 2008 i went for my discharge appointment where they found a cyst on my right ovary, this also resulted in me having to have the ovary taken out. I had eggs collected twice with only one successful embryo to freeze. In February last year i had the ovary removed and started HRT.

On Saturday (22nd Jan 11) i started my drugs for frozen embryo transfer, I'm very nervous as this is my one and only chance of having a child of my own with my fiance. i have joined this forum for help and advice.

So that is me, hello everyone  :)

Hi Natalie !

Wishing you lots of luck and hugs  ^hugme^

I also started to down reg for frozen embryo transfer on Jan 22nd so know exactly what you're going through.
I'm a sligher older model than yourself  ;D and as you'll see from my profile I've already been through 1 fresh IVF cycle but was unsuccesful.

I'm on Buserelin and Progynova. How about you ?
