Are you doing immunes? If you are (and actually even if you're not) you might well not end up starting for months. We had initial consultation in March, started downreg very end of September. You'd not be able to work your morning shift in either week of stims, second week you MIGHT struggle to start at 3 too, depending on the commute from ARGC to work. I think you need to see what initial consultation brings then have a think and talk to your new bosses. Unpaid leave? Also be aware that the monitoring doesn't stop after transfer - you'll still need blood tests and ditto if you get a BFP. You'll also probably need a day off the day of the hysto, EC and ET. You also won't get much / any notice or time to plan - it's just how they work as they want to optimise treatment for you as an individual based on blood results etc. How far do you work from the clinic?
