UGH!!!

 
I went in for baselines this morning and everything looked good. I have a lot of antral follicles, my lining was nice and thin, and there was no indication of cysts. After my CD3 blood results were posted to my patient portal I emailed them to Dr. Braverman for his review. For the third month in a row my FSH and LH are low, 2.2 and 0.67 respectively. They are not as low as the previous cycle but still quite low. A few minutes after emailing Dr. Braverman I received a response from him telling me that my FSH and LH were too low to start stims tonight. He told me to that I need to take 10 units of Lupron twice a day for the next three days and then on Thursday I can drop the Lupron down to 5 units and start stims. Not what I wanted to hear!!! Even though I am so disappointed by this news, I want to do the right thing and what is best for this cycle. I am a tad nervous though about this Lupron thing as I have never done this before. I am worried about being suppressed too much and I am worried about my body starting without stims. I am still going in on Wednesday and Friday for monitoring so at least if things start on their own we will catch it in time and not waste this cycle...I hope.

  2. I agree...UGH! At least Braveman is shaking things up a little. Sometimes that's all it takes, even if it messes with our plans. I'm hoping that's the case for you. Fingers crossed.

  4. Hi from ICLW!
    Hope everything works out soon! Isn't loosing control so hard? I think that is the worst part about this whole process - that we aren't in control and so desperately want to be!
