Puerto Rico was great!!!! Had a blast..only wished the resorts were on the Caribbean side..not the Atlantic Ocean..still had fun!!!!

Met w/ RE and the new protocol is...BCP then 4 shots a day 2 am and 2 pm..Lupron am w/ 3 amps of Repornex and lupron pm w/ 3 amps of Follistism..never did it before..is Follistism the same as Gonal-F?? He wants to do Lupron Flare and not day 21 supression..so, we'll see what IVF#4 brings...

Kara..cd 31 waiting for AF to start BCP!!!

Hey Kara!!

Welcome back! Glad you had a great time on vacation! Yes Follistim is basically the same as gonal-f. Are you using the new RE? I pray that this next cycle is THE one for you!!

Hugs,

Sounds like a great protocol. I am so excited for you. Yes, Follistism and Gonal-F are the same. I used Follistism on my first round with good results(8 eggs) then used Gonal-F the second round with really good results (21 eggs). Everyone is differnet. I hope that this is the protocol for you and that the results are fantastic. Wishing you a wonderful cycle.

P.S. I have the "HAG" right now. Sending her your way, watch out she was ragging this month.
