Gap between fresh cycles - what does your clinic advise?

I'm interested in the gap between fresh cycles, and what everyone's clinics advise. My clinic has just messed up our cycle, and we will be starting again as soon as we can.

So the question is when should that be? My clinic say the cycle bleed then 2 cycles before starting. However so many of you on here semyem to start earlier, after only 1 cycle. I want to do whatever will bring us the best success rates. We're waiting in the clinic Consultant calling us back today, but I'm interested in what you are all tips, especially from clinics like ARGC and Dr Gorgy who quote really good success rates.

Hi EE.

Our treatment before moving to Ninewells was in Cambridge. Our first cycle was Sept 2010 and then the second was Dec 2010, so just a couple bleeds in between. Hope that helps.
