So, on CD6, I already have a 14 mm follie on the right and a 10 mm follie on the left, plus smaller follies.
In fact, I may be responding so well to the Follistim that they may be lowering my dosage. I have to wait for the nurse to call me and let me know after she sees the results of my blood work. Since I am doing an IUI, we don't want too many follies to grow, which is why we might lower the dosage. I am also starting on Ganirelix tomorrow to prevent me from ovulating early.
Next appointment on Thursday--more blood drawn and another u/s. Hopefully, things will continue to go well.
And I totally get what Cali said about how she liked Follistim better than pills because it makes you feel like you have more control. I definitely feel more in control this cycle, and that's been so rare in this process. So, I'm going to enjoy it.
The headaches continue. But I'll live.
EDIT: So, after seeing my bloodwork results, I have been told to reduce my Follistim dosage, start the Ganirelix today (not tomorrow) and go back in in on Wednesday (not Thursday).
So, now I am curious about what my estradiol levels were, not that I'll understand them. I'll try to find out on Wednesday.
