So, we're on track to go ahead with IVF. I have insurance approval and picked up my meds today. I have 5 days left of BCPs, then I wait for AF to start stims on CD 2 or 3(not sure which yet). My only concern is that I want to be sure I'm cyst free. I'm calling in tomorrow to request an u/s before I finish the BCPs, that way if I have any cysts, I can continue the BCPs a little longer. I'm a little disappointed that I have to ask for an u/s when it seems to be standard practice before starting stims. I know cysts can hinder follicle development and I don't want to get cancelled for something stupid like that.
Let me just say that seeing all the meds has caused me a little anxiety. I'm both nervous and excited, hoping I do everything right. I've watched the online training videos several times, and know I can do it but it still seems a little overwhelming. The retail on the meds I got was over $8700(thankfully I only had to pay $130)! I definitely wouldn't go to this pharmacy if I was paying out of pocket, although hopefully they offer some kind of discounts for self-pay customers. My RE ordered enough for 12 days of stims at my initial dose(300 Gonal-F/150 Menopur). Hopefully it will be enough, if not too much.
Wish me luck!
