I stopped my bcp Sunday and was told to continue the lupron and that I would get a period by now. I was suppose to go in today for my baseline u/s and b/w but RE said to postpone it. She said if I don't get my period by Friday I need to come in to see what is going on?

What is going on? Is this normal? What does it mean if I don't get my period? Will we have to postpone? or will they give me something to make the period come? please help....hoping I am not the reason the donor has to stop. Anyone dealt with this?

p.s. anyone else a raging b*t$h with these drugs? I am so irritable and it isn't helping that my body isn't cooperating...my poor DH. :)

Thank you,
Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,

I answered this in my thread, but if you just stopped BCP on Sunday AF isn't THAT late yet. Usually you get your period within 3 days of stopping BCP, so maybe you'll get it tomorrow. Also, I remember someone having this problem and she was still able to proceed- if your lining is thin and your hormone levels are low they might still start your donor on stim and you on estrogen. Try to relax, it will be okay!

Hey Amber,

Yes, I saw that after I posted this. Thanks for responding again though. I will try to relax and see what happens. I still have 2 days and hopefully you are right and it will come tomorrow. I just don't want to be the reason to delay. Every month I pray that my period wouldn't show and now when I want it to show? ha-ha!

I had my u/s and b/w today and the doctor said my lining was perfect and my b/w came back as expected. (still didn't get a period but did have some red after my u/s today) So, I started my estrace today (3x/day) along with a baby aspirin and I'm reducing my Lupron to 5u/day. So, here we go. The donor has her baseline u/s 11/19. I know it's not really a long time but it feels like these few weeks will go by slowly...I'm so ready to get this started! :--)

Yep!! On our way! Ironically I got my period this a.m. ha! I'm enjoying it (as much as one can) because I am confident this is my last one for at least 9 months! :)
