Thanks for the support, Jeanna, I'm starting to feel better about things, and just hoping for a good u/s next week. Gonna do my best not to worry until then, since there's nothing I can do until then anyway.
Sorry, as always, that this wasn't your cycle. Of course, I'm more than happy to talk you through your new protocol, and answer any questions you have. It's still very fresh in my mind, and I have my spreadsheet with all my stats ready to go!
It's really not much different than a regular antagonist protocol. You just leave out the ganirelix and add the lupron twice daily. It's clearly a lot more shots due to the lupron, but it's a low dose, so hopefully you won't have any side effects from it, other than some very mild headaches.
How long were you on BCPs? My RE felt I might have been oversuppressed the first time, which was part of the reason for the microflare lupron. But, she also had me on BCPs for a much shorter time. I was on them for around 3 weeks last time (I can look it up later if you want specific), and this time only 13 days.
Those are the highlights of my info/tips for right now, but ask me any questions you have now and along the way. I hope you get to start sooner rather than later now that you've got a new protocol to work with!
