10/13 Suppression check appointment & Trial Embryo Transfer. If everything is okay, I will decrease my Lupron dosage to 5 units, starting on 10/14.
10/15 Begin FSH & hMG to be administered by subcutaneous injections into my stomach. Exact dosage will be explained at 10/13 suppression check appt.
10/18 First Estradiol level check & ultrasound
10/24 Egg Retrieval will be this week. Exact date will be determined by maturation of follicles.
There are still numerous key steps that will go into our IVF plan. Many more estradiol level checks and ultrasounds will be thrown in the mix, but the dates will be determined by how my body responds to the medications. We will not have a date for the embryo transfer until the egg retrieval is complete. It will depend on the # of eggs that are fertilized and how well the fertilized embryos grow.
