I had my baseline u/s on Thursday for IVF #5. I had 19 antral follicles measuring less than 10. Woohoo! That's good since I am afraid that the Gan.irelix I will be on this time will stunt the growth of my smaller follicles as I begin to stim. I am really nervous about how this new protocol will work for me since I have never been on it.
I also received the rest of my calendar. I had an Es.tradiol Val.erate IM injection last night and I will have another on Monday night. I will continue with the baby as.pirin, pre.natal vitamin and dex.amethasone throughout my cycle. I will continue on Lu.pron, down from 10 units to 5 units, until 4/24 when I stop Lu.pron completely. On 4/24 everything changes. my calendar will look like this:
Men.opur- 150 IU and Bra.velle- 150 IU. These can be mixed together for one sub-q injection.
Gan.irelix sub-q injection
Es.trace suppositories- 2 X/day
Vi.agra suppositories- 4X/day
Fla.gyl pill- 2X/day
Doxy.cycline pill- DH and I both take 2x/day
Dex.amehtasone pill- 1/2 tablet/day
Baby as.piri pill- 1X/day
Pre.natal Vitamin pill- 1X/day
To sum it up: 2 shots, 6 suppositories and 7 pills each day.
So, if I seem a little crazy...I probably am!
I also have been talking to my clinic about the CGH study they are doing. I will have more info next week on this. I just need to talk a little more with my RE about the details and then I will be able to share more info in another post.
