It's Time to Start the Meds

I went in for repeat labs this morning. My progesterone and estrogen are still low. After talking to the doctor, one of the nurses called me back with my instructions.

Starting tonight:
Provera: Take 1 pill before bed every night
Estradiol: Take 2 pills tonight and then 2 in the morning and 2 before bed every night

I do this until November 27th and then I go in for baseline labs and an ultrasound on December 2nd.

It sounds like I will have to do the Ganirelix shots a lot this coming cycle to slow things down. My nurse told me to try to ice the area before giving myself the shot. I hope that works! They bruise me badly!

I am sure that I will find out more about the FET on the 25th when I meet with the doctor. I am looking forward to December and hoping that God gives me the only Christmas present that I want! :)

I hope you get that present too! Hooray for meds! Hopefully you'll find a new trick with the ganerelix.

The Ganirelix has been kicking my butt! I tried icing last night and it did nothing for me; I find that using a harder motion to get it in works best. I haven't bruised too badly, but I can see faint bruises. Following your story & sending positive thoughts your way :)

but hopefully it gets the results you want! :)
