IVF Calendar

An IVF calendar can be a very useful tool in the IVF process. When used effectively it can help you keep track of which drugs to take on certain days, dosages, appointments, benchmarks, and most importantly, how many days you have until the end of your IVF cycle.

The IVF calendar shown below is an example of how your IVF protocol may evolve. This sample IVF cycle is for ovarian stimulation using Lupron with the use of birth control pills (BCP). Most IVF cycles will have variations in the exact timelines based on each individual patient's response to the medication and their menstrual period cycles. This timeline proposed below is just an example only and is not to be relied on for IVF treatment nor should it not replace the advice of your physician.
