    Exclamation Anyone done a protocol that uses cetrotide? I am SO CONFUSED. Please help!!!

    Hi All!
    I have just begun my third IVF cycle as of yesterday.
    It is a completely different protocol to what I have done (actually each IVF has been different for me).
    I am to be on 10mg prednisone from day 1, then after egg collection increase to 20mg and continue if I get a BFP. This is due to suspected NK cells.
    Also from day 1 I start cetrotide injections...on day 3 (tomorrow) I stop I have one more then stop until day 8 where I resume again until egg collection.
    Tomorrow I also start my gonal f (125iu)..this is the highest dose I have ever been on (usually on very low doses as I respond quiet well.) A bit concerned as last time I was on 112iu and got OHSS.
    I am triggering with synarel.

    What I don't understand is why do I start the cetrotide on day 1, stop, then start again?
    From what I have googled I realise that it is to prevent ovulation...this would make sense if I were only starting it later in my cycle...but not stopping and starting

    If anyone has done a similar protocol to this or knows more about cetrotide PLEASE share your info
    Thank you in advance!
