Hello! My husband and l are going through IVF. We are doing two retrievals. For the first round we did 300 of Follistim and 150 Menopur. We also did Ganirelix and our trigger injections when it was time. We retrieved 9 eggs, 8 mature, 6 fertilized, and two frozen. We will get testing done after second retrieval.
This retrieval we are doing the same Follistim and Menopur, and the doctor added 24 units of omnitrope. This is CD 8 and l have 12.5, 11, 9, 9.5, 9, 8, and a big 17.5 My doctor said she could go either way, ignoring the large follicle and continuing on or stopping the cycle. She mentioned if money wasn’t an option, she would say cancel the cycle, but is ok with continuing. Financially, we can’t afford to stop this cycle. Our insurance has covered none of our IVF medications and the procedure. We are opting to continue on. We could really use some success stories from anyone who has gone through this same thing and some good thoughts! Thank you!
