Not much new to report. I had my baseline u/s on Monday. All was quite in ovary world. I was given the green light to start Follistim on Tuesday (CD3) at 100IU. Based on my response to previous FSH cycles I am guessing that I will stim for about 11 days before triggering.
I believe once we trigger we will begin progesterone supplementation and put 2 embryos back in 7 days later. From what I gather (and trust me there isn't much information available on the web on this protocol) 7 days is when a normal fertilized egg would reach the uterus for implantation. I have learned through the IVF process that your body never does what it is supposed to...but on paper if all goes well I am guessing my transfer will be on January 17 or 18.
I feel like I am out here in uncharted territory with this protocol. I can't find any information on it and very few people on the message boards seem to have done it this way. Logically, I would think this would yield a better success rate since my body is actually going to ovulate and hence form a corpus luteum that would create it's hormones. I just wish there was more info available to read. Maybe it's a good thing that there isn't so I can't obsess.
That's about all that is new! Hope everyone has a fabulous NYE! Be safe!
