Good news and bad news...

So I had my CD 6 monitoring appt this morning and I know all the numbers won't mean much to a lot of you but I will try to put it all in perspective as best I can.


Good news:


Normally, what's considered measurable as far as follicles are concerned is anything 10mm and above. You usually won't see anything measureable at the first follicle check - it usually takes until the 2nd which should be around CD 8. They usually see a bunch (maybe ten or so) that are less than 10mm. This morning I had two follicles at 10 and 11! That is great news for being so early on!

This sounds promising Michelle. I'm glad they caught the low estrogen and upped your meds. What med do you take to boost estrogen?

They keep you on the same meds they just up the dose. I am currently on Bravelle but it's the same as Follistim, Gonal-F etc. It's pure FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) which does what it sounds like it does - stimulates growth of the follicles hopefully resulting multiple mature follicles which will each release an egg.

Michelle,


I know that it is frustrating that your E2 levels were lower than you wanted them to be, but the follicle sizes sound awesome and it is terrific that your lining is already so good!!

Yay for the wonderful follies Michelle!! And the lining, that is great news too!! So the Estrogen level, can that be corrected with the meds soon enough to not matter?? This is all new to me, but if the higher dose does the trick then it should be a really good month!! =)

Wow that is great news on your follies and lining. Sorry bout the E2 but I really hope the meds fix that right up.Will they be able to see a difference in the E2 by tomorrow?? I hope its where it should be by the time you go for the IUI. I don't remember,will you be doing back to back IUIs this cycle??
