Has anyone used Lupron to suppress their ovaries before their ovary stimulation?? I am on injection #7 and the doctor was hoping I would of gotten my period by now, so I can start the stimulation injections. We are currently set up for a 8-20 egg retrieval and 8-25 embryo transfer.
Yeah, that is actually what the Lupron is to do. I sort of feel like I will get my period, but it could also just be in my head. We are like 12 days away from our 1st attempt at IVF with ICSI and I am at the point were I am so excited and so nervous at the same time!! I do not want anything to go wrong!!
Thanks for getting back to me though
I started lupron at the end of my birth control month and I got my period right after I stopped the pill. It was a very light AF though, more like spotting but my RE said it was as expected.
Good luck to you!
I was on Lupron and was also using my stimulation medicine but the cycle was cancelled a few days before retrieval because I ovulated which is something they didn't want to happen. They took me off Lupron and used Cetrotide and the retrieval was successful.
You're about 1 week behind me. I just finish my 14 days of Lupron and 4 days of stims., I had U/S this morning I only have very small 6 follicles. RE increases my dose from 6 vial(bravells+menopur) to 8 vials. We hope to have more follicles on next wed. U/S. This is my 4th IVF, the previous ones I used to have more than 10 follicles with same dose of medicine. I'm so sad......and don't know why I don't response to the medicine this cycle. Good luck to us.
