Went in today for u/s and b/w after 4 days of stims (300 iu gonal-f per day). Had 2 follicles at 9 on right and one under 8, and one at 6 on the left (this is an IUI cycle for me). I thought that was o.k., but then e2 came back at 39! I was devastated! I thought for sure this cycle was going to be it, esp. since I had a lap in April to remove endo.
I have cried part of the day. The nurse says it is too early to give up. RE upped the meds to 375. This is my highest dosage ever (which I know is low for many of you). When I got p/g with DS in August of 2004, I was on a 225 dosage (Bravelle). My last 3 cycles I was also on 225 (BFNs, but I did respond).
What is going on? Could a switch from Bravelle to Gonal-F be bad? I thought it may be good to give my system a change since the last 3 Bravelle rounds were BFNs!
Any thoughts? Thanks for listening!
Perhaps you're a slow responder like me. I didn't even get an US or BW until day #6 of stims the last round. Did 11 days worth of stims total.
Are you "resting" in between rounds of drugs? Are you taking any BCPs prior to a round of stims? What is your FSH?
