So, I got my estrogen levels back from last cycle, when they had me trigger, I was at 1835.... and 3 days prior to that, my level was 212..... so.. I jumped fast and hard. Which is why they had me trigger so fast.

 

today, I still have some signs of risiduals from last cycle, so i'll recheck friday to see if I can do a cycle on 5-9 of femera, and add some menopur in, with the main dose of 150, then go down to 75 to try to keep me from spiking up quite like that.

We triggered a little fast, which may be why the eggs didn't take, that they weren't *quite* mature enough, so we are hoping (if not this month, next month.) to do a reduce menopur addition after the first draw, to see if we can coast a couple eggs along nicely with out stimulating too many so we can trigger at a larger size.

He did say that I was a perfect IVF (in vitro fertilization) candidate, and hubby agreed to do IVF after christmas, if we weren't pregnant by then.

That sounds very complicated. 😜 Lots of luck and prayers though!

I'm glad you have a game plan and that dh is on board. Hopefully this cycle works out for ya and you get your bfp.

IT would be nice. The doctor brought up ovarian drilling and mini ivf cycles. I just need to know how much it would cost to switch to an IVF cycle mid-way if we wanted to push my eggs. My insurance covers all the meds, just not egg retrieval, storage, FET, etc. so I'd have to look into the process of how much all of that would cost. We can afford it after christmas, since the meds are covered. I just need to know if i'm paying out of pocket, how much of a deal the doctor would give us on all of this. It's cheaper to just have my insurance pay for meds, and cancel a cycle if need be. :/ He'd rather I not waste cycles canceling if possible, so he's trying to get my body to stop being quite so "PCOS"-like in my response. I had the traditional PCOS over stim issue.

Oh wow. Hopefully it's a reasonable price. With my pcos, I haven't really had any of the traditional issues with it. No insulin resistance, no cysts on ovaries, o ovulate every month with and without meds. Been pretty lucky with that, knock on wood. I have no idea why we haven't gotten pregnant yet.

Good luck!  I ended up doing IVF and it worked after years of trying everything.

I don't have insulin issues, but I never ovulate on my own, we'll be doing a sperm check next month just to make sure he's still working, too! LOL

I've been able to get pregnant a few times, but I just don't ovulate.

Sounds like a plan! Would your insurance cover Ivf?
