Yesterday I received my protocol. Since I'm a "vet", all I get is a rushed phone call where one of the nurses practices her auctioneer stylings while I take frantic notes.
I will receive a written protocol in the mail, but here is what I was able to scribble down:
Estimated Period Start 10/27. (hah, little do they know that my period likes to hide like the snarky bitch she is when I actually want her to appear).
Start Stims 10/28.
225 Follistim Pen
Low dose of Ganerelix (starting on the first day of stims).
Est Retrieval 11/8
Now, my last IVF was an antagonist cycle so I am familiar with Ganerelix and what it does, but I'm not sure why I would be taking it from the very beginning? Dr. Google has provided little insight as well.
The nurse also mentioned that I would be taking Prednisone at some point, which Dr. Goggle has lots of information on...lots o scary scary information. I know most of the scary stuff is in high doses, so I will try my best to just trust in my RE.
As a reward for reading this clinical and boring post, and upon one of my first readers request (!yay). Here is a picture of Butters.
