Hi everyone, I’m 40 years old and my husband and I have been TTC for 4 years. After 3 failed IUI cycles, I’m now about a month into my first IVF cycle in preparation for a FET. I started on the BCP and then Lupron. Last week I had an appt for bloodwork and they said that my estrogen levels were still too high and to stay on Lupron for one more week. Today I was tested again and sadly the estrogen levels are still too high and now the Lupron dose is being increased to double and will test again in 5 days. I was advised that we will have to cancel this cycle if the levels don’t go down by then. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? It’s so hard to get any insights from the nurses that call (I understand they are really just the messengers and can only share so much). I would really appreciate any guidance.
