Morning-

This is my 2nd IVF and I feel like things are going super slow or really bad...looking for input!! PLEASE! :)

Got my flow last Friday 4/20... Was doing estrogen priming with ganirelixlast week (0.5 estrace pill a day sun-fri and ganirelix tues,wed, thurs).

I started lupron (20 units in pm) Sat 4/21. Stim (gonal f 300 , 20 lupron in am and 150 menopur, 20 lupron in pm) Sunday.

I'm so sorry that you didn't get the results you expected. I, too, was in a similar situation where my body didn't respond well to the meds. My cycle was cancelled because I was over suppressed by th lupron. I am currently waiting to start over with my May cycle on a micro dose lupron protocol. Unfortunately, I don't know much about it other than the amount of lupron is way less and its taken twice a day.

E2 tripling in 2 days is good =) This is CD8 and your 6th day of stims, right? If so, that seems right on track to me. Did you have a scan done too?

I was on the micro flare protocol too and my E2=376 on CD9 (7th day of stims). Hang in there, things should start getting exciting here really soon =)

Good luck!
