I am a newbie to IVF and I will be starting my BCP at the start of my next cycle which is approx. at the end of September. I asked the IVF nurse for a list of drugs they will order for me and she sent me an order form that they use. They are not sending this now and it doesn't give me instructions. I'm sure I will get the exact protocol when I start BCP.

They have checked:

Doxycycline 100 mg

If you are on a pretty standard (long lupron) protocol you will probably take the bcp, then continue taking them for a few days with the leuprolide, after the leuprolide you will start the follistim, the HCG is to trigger the final maturation of the eggs (about 36 hours prior to retrieval) You will start the progesterone following retrieval and for weeks to come assuming a successful cycle to support the pregnancy.
caps, means 8 capusules-The doxycycline is an oral antibiotic typically started before retrieval. Follistim is roughly the same thing as gonal, just different manufacturers.

Good Luck!

One other thing........

Since I am taking my BCP next month (towards end of the month) would that be considered a September cycle or would it be an October cycle when I actually take the fertility drugs? I know, a stupid questions.........
