On Friday, I received a packet in the mail for my next round of IVF. In it, a prescription for BCPs, my list of drugs I will be on, and my IVF calendar.
For this round I will be doing the Antagonist protocol versus the Lu.pron protocol from last time. I will be on Ganire.lix instead of Lu.pron, Follis.tim and Meno.pur. Thankfully, no PIO this time either, I will be on Endome.trin suppositories again.
The antagonist protocol is much shorter than the Lu.pron one. I will not be suppressed for 12 days with Lu.pron. I will go on BCPs after AF shows up, stims will start on July 2nd and the estimated egg retrieval/transfer will be the week of July 11th. My nurses consult is scheduled for June 15th.
It's coming up fast.
I could have started earlier, with stims starting on June 25th, but then ER/ET would have been the week of July 4th, and I didn't want to risk it in case we decided to go on vacation that week. To be honest, I'm not even sure if I want to start that quickly. I'm thinking about taking another month off before doing IVF again. I have my reasons, but that will be for another post.
For now, we are have a plan, though that plan could change.
