High E2 pre-stim? — The Bump

High E2 pre-stim?

Hi ladies!  Today was supposed to be beginning my stim meds today - but something weird happened and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced the same thing.  Background: rather than being on BCP, they put me on Estrace (2mg, cd1 - 30), Testosterone (1.25 ml, cd4 - 30), Prometrium (200 mg, 2xday, cd21-30) with my last dose of everything last (2/17) Monday. 

The net effect was a cycle that was the longest I ever had (36 days - I'm usually 28-29, pretty much like clockwork).  I started very light spotting on Saturday - Monday.  They had me come in on Monday for e2/p4 & u/s - but I thought it was a little silly because I hadn't started full flow.  Results: no cysts, but P4 was still really high so wait for full flow.  CD1 arrived mid-day on Weds, they got me in for repeat b/w and u/s on Thurs morning, made sure I had all my meds - gave me a rundown of everything - this is it - we're gonna do this!  (Pretty excited!)  Results: still no cysts, one tiny follie, P4 levels much better, but E2 was elevated so don't do stims.

The good news is I'm being transferred directly to a new pre-stim regimen - and my protocol looks like it's pretty much going to be the same minus clomid.  Everything has been bumped back about a month - which isn't a HUGE deal - but it's definitely disappointing.  We've been working with these guys since July and would really like to get to it already!  This foreplay stinks!  Anyone else been cancelled pre-stim due to high E2?
