I am supposed to take my trigger shot tonight at 9 15 pm,, and for the life of me cannot remember, am I supposed to take a Lupron shot today or not.  I called the doctors office, but noone has called me back yet.  Does anyone have a quick answer.  I know they told me if I had any left over bravelle, I could use that this morning, but cannot remember whether to take the small dose lupron.

Any advise, or should I just wait for a return call. So much confusion on my part. I am a nervous wreck .

hi there! i can only tell you what i did, the day i took my trigger i did not take any of my other meds. i had done my last lupron and last gonal f shot the day before, then did the trigger that day alone. so im thinking no on the lupron, but just to be safe i would wait to hear from them since you have till 915!

For all of my cycles no matter the protocol on the day of the trigger I didn't take any meds other than my trigger shot. Hopefully you hear from your docs office to confirm.

Can you call back again? I don't think I did Lupron on trigger day, but I triggered on a day after a monitoring appointment---if it was a monitoring day, I would have already taken the Lupron by the time they called and said to trigger. I'd call back. Call six times if you need to.

I would check with your office just to make sure. I know if I took lupron or ganirelix in the morning, I still took it. Usually, i would have an appointment that day and didn't know if I would trigger or not so still had to take it. I think the cycles that I did the lupron/ganirelix in the eventing, I did not do these shots that evening. Don't worry I think either way would be fine.

Good Luck!!

Did you hear from the Dr's office? I just read your posting and I know that for all my cycles, I stopped all other meds and just did the trigger.

I hope you got your answers in time.

Good luck!
