I just had my ER, but woke up in recovery to find out they got 0 eggs because I ovulated too soon. I had been taking ganirelix prior to my trigger shot. I saw the doc every day leading up, had scans but no bloodwork. The ER doc seemed a little surprised I didn't have bloodwork done, he actually thought I may have ovulated prior to my trigger. I haven't spoken the my RE cause I'm hurt and angry, I guess I'll return her call tomorrow.
Has as this happened to anyone else? I just wasted 2 month, $5K worth of drugs, potentially 4 eggs, days off work, hotel and travel cost, and who knows if I have to pay the full fee for the retrieval since it also included the embryologist fee and transfer which didn't happen.
Me & DH - 41, DH has a cyst blocking his tubes, I'm just old.
