So last night I went for my IVF chat with the doctor. As usual, my questions popped up after the meeting and I wondered if anyone on here might have more information!
She told me that at the beginning of my cycle I’d call up and go for a baseline scan, then begin nasal spray and drugs to essentially put me into a menopausal state for two weeks, then begin the injections. Then after a week or two of them, go for egg transfer.
That all sounds fine, but what is the point of the menopausal state? I’ve read about people having a short protocol and just starting the drugs at the beginning of their cycle as you would for IUI.
I responded ridiculously well to Gonal F when doing IUI and I have a high egg reserve for 37. I wonder if this is why she thinks I should do the longer protocol?
If I could avoid putting my ovaries in a menopausal state and take less drugs I think I’ll be a lot happier!
