Anyone with similar levels being put on Menopur 300 iu on long protocol IVF?
FSH 8.1 (CD3)
LH 6 (on CD3)
Oestradiol 196 (on CD3)
Antral follicle count: about 4-6 follicles each ovary (on CD4)
(I've just turned 40 in June this year.)
I've been wondering if my Menopur dose is too high, but we never get to talk to my RE again since our 1st and only consultation...
I've been put on long protocol, down-reg with 2-weeks of Buserelin injections. The result of down-reg was as expected, so I could start Menopur Thursday evening. But as I have currently done 2 days of stims with Menopur, I started to wonder even more if 300 is too strong for me, cos I already started to find that I urinate less even when drinking tons of fluids. (Could this be a sign of follicles developing too fast, since I've only done 2 days of stims?)
What concerns me is that I don't even get a scan until 6 days of using Menopur, which is next Wednesday. My clinic only does scans on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays... I wish I could call them on Monday (or just turn up to see them after work?!) to request an extra scan on the day, but I know they will just tell me to relax and wait till Wednesday...
So difficult not to wonder what's going on inside me...!
I would appreciate any sharing of experience - thank you so much in advance!
