checks during IVF cycle?

Dang it! I forgot to ask the nurse when I spoke to her today and I don't see the RE and nurse until Friday.

 

For those that have been through IVF cycles before, how often do you go in for blood work and sonos? Every day? Every other day? I know it depends on how one responds to the meds but I was just wondering on average because that can get really expensive if one has to go every day!

Re: checks during IVF cycle?

  • Once it started getting closer, I went every other day for u/s. I was on a high dose of all those meds so they wanted to make sure I wouldn't over stimulate.

  • I was on high dosages and starting day 4 I went every single day. All of those visits were part of my ivf package. Ultrasounds and blood work every morning.

  • After day 6/7ish of stims, I went everyday. I was on a moderate dose of Follistim (255 I think) and low dose HCG. I added Ganirelex my last 4 nights of stims.  I was on stims for 11 days.

  • I mostly went every other day. At the end, I went every day, but that was only for 2 days. Good luck!

  • We've only done 1 IVF (prepping for #2), but during stims it was every other day and towards the end, every day.  That's a really small window, though.  Like 10-14 day at the most, usually. 

    Good luck!

  • What stinks is my RE is 45 mins from my work and home so It's always going to be a 2 hour minimum trip.

    So I went in today for my 3 day baseline blood work and I have to go in every day. Luckily my nurse offered to come in at 7 in the morning to help accommodate my work schedule. So when I work from home I will only be late about an hour and when I work in the office maybe 30 mins.

    That actually lifted a huge burden off my shoulders.

    Just waiting on the results of the BW.

    I'm so happy to have you ladies to bounce things off of. Thank you!
