Hi, I am on decapeptyl mthly injections about to take my 3rd one, can you get pregnant on these? Also can I start IVF right away? Thanks!

Low estrogen levels make patients feel menopausal so often we use add back therapy to decrease the side effects. The first cycle you could ovulate or may have already ovulated so could be pregnant. After that month pregnancy is very unlikely. ...Read more

Can I drink wine to stay relaxed while IVF? Started injections 4 days ago and anxiety is super high!
Risky: In an article by Rossi and others in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology of January 2011 they looked at more than 4700 IVF cycles/2500 couples, looking at live birth rate after IVF. In women or men with 4+ drinks/week prior to IVF cycle there was a 48 % higher risk for failure of fertilization and a 21% lower chance for a live birth. You have to use your own judgement but you may be gambling. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
