EPP question

Has anyone done the EPP with ganirelix prior to CD1 before?  I started the patch yesterday for CD24 and I'm starting ganirelix tonight (if it gets approved in time...) and then continuing for 2 additional days.  I had asked one of the nurses if that would shorten my luteal phase and she said no.  I was wondering if anyone had experience with getting AF sooner than expected with a similar protocol?  I wouldn't care normally but I've been stressing all week getting the cycle finally approved Tuesday afternoon and then got my patch just in time yesterday to start.  Now I'm still waiting for the rest of my meds to get approved.  To be sure, I told the pharmacy that I need the rest of the meds by Monday just in case AF comes after my last ganirelix.  Sorry for the unexpected rant  :-/

Re: EPP question

  • Yes, I did this my first IVF. I got AF the morning after the 3rd ganirelix shot. Not sure if it was the ganirelix or bc I started the patch a little later than I should have (we missed ovulation). Hope you can get all your meds early just in case!

  • I'm doing this protocol right now and I got my period the day after third GANIRELIX shot. When I went in for Day 2 monitoring I asked the dr. If this was ok/if I had been on the patch long enough, and she assured me that it was expected that I would get my period early.

    Good luck!

  • Thanks, this is what I thought would happen. On my way to go pay OOP for one ganirelix shot, they got it approved! I really hate that pharmacy, I swear they don't do anything unless you call them all the time. This happened with my last cycle where they had 2 weeks to get everything approved and waited till the end of it. I'll have to call and tell them I really need the rest for Monday.
