What is the reasoning being given for not trying again after a failed ivf? Is there a hormone issue, a physical issue? Can't you just ask to be put on the February cycle and ask what you need to get it rolling?
I would definitely ask the reasoning for the delay, and be more assertive with him about starting cycles. I would ask him why you only had one real cycle this year, what his concerns are if any, why such a long gap between tries, and what his plans are. This is ridiculous to put you through this wait and not explain to you why.
Is he listed with the BBB? Have there been other similar complaints?
