    Default Contraceptive pill prior to start of IVF treatment

    I am doing a down reg cycle at the moment and my FS told me to start on the yellow (ie active) pills. I am taking them for 21 days. At 17 days I start sniffing syranel to keep me from ovulating.

    I'm freaking out now! FS never said anything to me about starting on active pills :-(. I hope I haven't stuffed up the cycle. I did 4 days on sugar pills before moving to active.

    From what I have read MrsErin it will still have the same effect as it will help predict your next cycle so I'm sure all will be fine! ((Hugs))

    Oh I hope so! I have already emailed my FS but I won't expect to get a response for a few days now.

    Definitely the active pills, my FS has written this onto my script so it is printed on the box of my medications.

    The Sugar pills aren't pills, they are only there for girls taking it to remember to take a pill every day. You always start the active pills on 1st, usually 2nd day of AF.

    Taking the sugar pills will do nothing except delay taking the active pills which will then mean you start producing a follicle.

    All is OK. I was supposed to start on the active pills but they said it's OK provided you start them before day 7. Phew!

    Pretty annoyed that I wasn't told this upfront and that it wasn't on the dispensing label, but at least I'll know for next time.
