Hey @MrsJoey thats great news !! My understanding is that the scientists are present when they aspirate the follicles and check them immediately under the microscope to see a. if there was one in the follicle, and b. if its mature or not. Dont worry too much about the crinone, its all a means to an end and besides, if its not that giving you side effects, it will be something else
They like to make you wait to make sure your hormones all go back to normal and your ovaries are rested (if you're doing an EPU). I suppose in my case with elevated progesterone they really want to make sure everything settles down. If I choose to do an EPU next then they make you wait so they can get the timing spot on I think. They put me on the pill, which I hate for obvious reasons, so they can time my AF to suit their us and surgery schedules I reckon.
