I am a little disappointed. I have 2 follicles on my left ovary at 17mm and 12mm. Several smaller ones on both ovaries. Lining looks good. I have to take another dose of Menopur (225 units) tonight and return tomorrow morning for another scan.
I know, 1-2 is pretty good. It only takes one (I hate that saying). It’s just that we spent SO much money this cycle. Last cycle, we did the same protocol and I had 3 follies – all nice sizes. My body is stupid sometimes. I’m surprised to see Lefty doing all the work this time, since I’ve been ovulating from my right side a lot lately.
I don’t know when we’ll do the IUI. I guess it’ll depend on my follicle growth and E2 levels. They took an E2 today, but I may not know what it is until tomorrow. I’m tempted to see if we can let the dominant follicle go (just let it keep growing and release or whatever) and continue to grow the smaller ones. I think the fact that the largest one grew so fast, could mean it’s of lesser quality. If we could keep going, the smaller ones might be better. I don’t know if this doctor will go for that idea or not. Some doctors will do that.
If we could keep stimming the smaller ones, we could potentially have a fresh IUI, instead of using the frozen sample – AND have more follicles. Hmm… I’ll update tomorrow as soon as I know something. FX!
