After 4 days of the Gonal F, I had an ultrasound & another blood test. Follicles are small and the E2 is low. My lining looks good...but I am still spotting...very light...but every day.
The nurse told me that if I don't stop bleeding by Friday and/or if the E2 levels don't take a big jump, they will cancel the IVF cycle. When I heard that yesterday, I was in shock. I've taken Gonal F before and responded well...for the IVF they more than doubled the dose I had been taking...don't know what may have caused this problem???
I did get the flu the 3rd week I was on BCPs...it was a pretty nasty one and I was really wiped out for 2-3 days. Could that be my problem?
If anyone has had an experience with a cancelled IVF session, please let me know. Really feeling down right now. I was prepared for the fact that I might not get a BFP from the IVF...but I never thought I wouldn't even get to the egg retrieval stage. Thanks for listening...
