Has anybody test for LH surge at home while doing IVF cycle..is it ok to do it at home or going everyday to the hospital for blood test?
I am going to start my cycle soon and hospital is little far from my place..so, just wondering..please share!!
You don't need to test for LH surge while doing ivf. LH surge detects ovulation and you do not ovulate with ivf. Eggs are retrieved before you O. You will be closely monitored with blood tests and u/s to check your E2 levels and the size of your follicles.
Also note that you may be taking Menopur which is a mix of LH and FSH hormones so I am not sure what LH monitor would show,
