Another Delay and Protocol Change

Posted by auntiem10 on September 1, 2010

Ugh, what a day. Progesterone level is only 0.7 (CCRM was looking for 5.0 or greater). Apparently the HCG trigger injection did nothing for me, and I haven’t yet ovulated on CD 25. Now Dr. Surrey wants me to try a “Prometrium/Lupron Overlap” protocol to finally get suppressed and hopefully cyst-free. Tomorrow I’ll start prometrium twice/day for 10 days. On the seventh day of Prometrium, I’ll start lupron. Four to seven days after stopping Prometrium, AF will arrive. Since I’ll already be injecting lupron, I’ll just need to have a suppression check and then can start stims. This change of plans will mean a delay of about 2-3 more weeks. I’ll get a new, very tentative calendar in the next day or so. It will probably change since they can’t really pinpoint when AF will show.

Is my body trying to tell me that all of this isn’t meant to happen? I am starting to wonder. It is clearly NOT wanting to go through with this. I never even let myself get too wrapped up in the thought of a September retrieval, so I am not all that upset–just annoyed and frustrated!

    I think your body is just telling you that it wants to make sure everything is just right before you start. I’m so sorry for this delay. Hang in there – you’ll get there.
