@jeb8303 you have every right to feel frustrated. It's hard when it's your own body but there's an extra level when there's another person to consider.
I have around 22 follicles, 9 are over 17mm. EPU is booked for Wednesday and I'll trigger tonight with Lucrin. Getting to the pointy end
OMG this thread moves so quick! I got the call I start my Lucrin injections tonight woot woot bring on three and a half weeks of injections.. Need to remain positive as I am doing a long cycle and I struggled through two weeks of injections in a short cycle.
I'm on day 7 of gonal f and had a blood test this morning to check my lh levels. The clinic called me back this afternoon and said the levels were low so I have to start luveris tomorrow with the gonal f. Has anyone taken luveris before? I'm still not exactly sure what it does
@bubbles21 - yes! That was me on two cycles. First cycle my LH levels were fine, but then two days later they dropped. This cycle, they were lower than they would have liked them, so they put me on luveris right away. I don't know what dose of Gonal f they have you on, but I was on 300 in my first cycle and 450 in my second cycle. It sounds like it may be Gonal f or high doses causing this. Luveris is good to maintain LH levels. Good you're on it.
I'm only on 112.5 of gonal f!
MaybeBabyIVF I am so sorry for your loss, what a beautiful name. Glad to hear you are so positive. I have done all of my FET as natural cycles with no meds. My 2 FET's have both resulted in BFP's which have unfortunately miscarried (but this is due to another issues we just found out about). I personally love natural FET as it is closer to what 'nature' intended and my body responds far better than when i have been medicated.
In terms of what to expect every clinic and every FS is different. I haven't used progesterone in the past for FET but I am pretty sure I will be next time and it is usually in the form of a pessary or a cream. At my clinic I start having blood tests from day 10 of my cycle to pinpoint ovulation, I usually have a blood test every two days if numbers are increasing or every 3 if they are really low. As soon as my levels surge to indicate ovulation I have one more blood test to make sure levels are coming down again and then I have my transfer 5 days after that. I hope that helps...
Good luck with everything and keep us in the loop xx
@sickoftrying try to stay positive, these symptoms can definitely be implantation symptoms. I hope you get the BFP you have been searching for. Keep us in the loop and I hope you start to feel better soon. x
