We will be doing our 1st round of IVF in late August or Sept. In the meantime, we have a checklist of things to do such as meeting with an IVF counselor, financial advisor, and injectible training. I did two previous cycles with injectibles and we couldn't finish either one. With the first cycle, we had to cancel because I didn't have any follicles that were big enough after 2 weeks (biggest follie was 7mm) and DH had to go out of town on business. With the second cycle, we were again 2 weeks in and still nothing big enough (again 7mm)...then we had a death in the family and had to go to the funeral in another state. Talk about frustration!!!
Anyway, my doctor said I was a slow responder. I'm wondering if anyone else has had experience with this? I started at 75iu of Gonal-f for a few days, gradually working up to 225iu for the last three days. I am now with a new RE, btw. I noticed on my IVF schedule that we start out with Lupron. My old RE didn't have me do this at all, just had me on Gonal-f. Will doing Lupron first make a difference in how I respond? I'm getting nervous that I'm not going to produce any eggs at all!!
