I just wanted to introduce myself as I prepare for my first round of IVF as we TTC #2. We were successful with our first complete IVF last year (details in sig), and just had DD this June. Since I am 39 (will be 40 in early March), both RE and OB recommended trying for #2 ASAP, especially before turning 40 if possible, so we are currently on our way.
Just did CD3 labs yesterday and hormones are all within normal range. My thyroid is still a little high PP, since my levels went really low taking my pregnancy dose PP for a bit, and then dropping the dosage to regulate. It wasn't terrible, around 3.5, but still want to get that number down ASAP, so we upped my dosage yesterday.
I go in for my saline sonogram next Friday, and am really hoping I get the all clear, since last time I had a cyst and my cycle was delayed for a D&C/Hysteroscopy to clean things up first.
Yesterday, while reviewing my labs with the RE nurse, she mentioned that while the RE wants to me to repeat the antagonist protocol (Menopur and Follistim), she wants me to do Lupron this time (I believe she said it was a flare/microflare) and I believe she said we would use that instead of the Ganirelex. During my time on the IF board, I recalled plenty of people using Lupron, but since it didn't apply to me at the time, I didn't pay much attention. I was hoping that I could get some info/advice about it from those that have done it in the past (hopefully as a successful cycle), so I can understand the purpose of using it as well as any helpful tips or info worth knowing about this med. TIA!
