After 9 days of stims (300iu of menopur) my E2 level is 6999. Should I be worried?Honestly I am a little worried because I took another dose of stims this morning so of course this level will go up. I have my HCG trigger tonight too! My stomach feels extra

E2 levels will vary based on age/Number of follies. I will say..that the average numbers in any cycle run from 1000-4000. Much higher than that can be a sign of OHSS. It does NOT mean you will hyperstimulate...it is just a "heads-up" to be on the look-out.

Typically, a follicle is mature once it measures 14 to 20 mm in diameter and the E2 level reaches 200 pg/mL. The E2 level will be higher depending upon the number of follicles present. Peak estradiol levels in IVF are usually between 1,000 and 4,000 pg/mL

I know that for me...the FIRST IVF..on my 8th day of Stims..... My E2 was 3800. This cycle...on my Last E2 before ET...I was at 3760.

Are you feeling bloated/Weight gain?? Any symproms of OHSS? If not, I wuldn't worry. Ask your Dr...and relax...everyone responds differently and has various levels.

Thanks Lindsay, my nurse sounded surprised and I heard a sense of urgency in her voice but she didn't say to be on the look out for symptoms of ohss. I am checking my urine to make sure it is clear and if my pain gets worst I will definitely give her call. I can only pray I don't hyperstimulate that would suck!!

Amanda - I would defiantly worry about OHSS especially after the trigger shot.

I agree that you should be on the lookout.

Thanks ladies, on Sunday we went to the beach and for some reason I was gulping down gatorade! maybe my body knew :) I have been drinking lots of water since then but I guess I will switch back to gatorade now. I am going to eat as many eggs as I can too. My stupid scale is not working so I'm not sure about the weight gain but I was feeling light headed last night.
Today I'm ok, I'm not in much pain I feel fine, so I hope all goes well. I praying this day goes by quickly and smoothly, once my eggs are out I will feel better mentally. I'm so glad my retrieval is tomorrow!

Thanks girls, I am still in a little pain but it is getting better so thank God for that! They got 15 eggs, 14 mature and 10 fertilized normally with icsi. I am very pleased, I am just praying they grow and develop well.

My RE was worried when my E2 was +3000. It can mess up a cycle. I had OHSS with 40-ish follies. Just try not to worry and trust your RE to know what's best.
