So the day after my cancelled IVF cycle I called to find out our next treatment plan. The nurse said it had not been completed by the RE yet. When I spoke to my RE the day my IVF was cancelled he mentioned that we MIGHT do a estrogen patch protocol and when speaking to the nurse she said the same.
I aksed the nurse what that involved & she said after this AF & upcoming ovulation I would start patches then with the arrival of my next AF I would start stims. So I was to call with AF and then we would order the patches.
So I called Sat when AF arrived. The nurse called me back & said that we had an issue. Huh?
She said I was supposed to start lupron on CD 2 which would have been Sun. I asked her what she was talking about because I was told I would be doing patches after O. She said the RE changed my plan and wanted me to do the lupron micro dose protocol, THIS CYCLE!!
Normally that would be great since I wouldn't have to wait an extra month right??Well we had 2 problems with that plan.
1) I would have had to start lupron yesterday & how would I get it on a Sunday? 2)Since we weren't doing any treatments that required DH's presence I told him it was ok to travel for work and as luck would have it he is traveling during the approx time of ER & ET & it's too late too change his travel plans!
In the grand scheme of things it's not a huge deal but I was pretty peeved when I found this out. In defense of the RE's office on the day I spoke to nurse the RE hadn't completed my treatment plan yet so I assumed we were doing the patch protocol since no one advised me differently. However shouldn't someone have called me since the plan had changed & we needed to order medicine for this cycle?
Oh well what's another month..
Sorry this is so long & as always thanks for letting me vent:)
