We are a go for another cycle. As soon as the promised-to-be-heavy period starts, we start counting until day 19 (luteal phase), and then we begin estrogen priming. THEN...we are switching to an antagonist protocol (like my use of "we" - in the communal sense, as if my RE is going to jump in and help? Maybe she'd like to come over and give my injections). Apparently, the professional medical consensus is that I am A) NOT a poor responder BUT B) DID have an aversion to lupron (over-suppressed, under-stimmed, therefore too few mature eggs to do much with). Lupron was my least favorite drug of the bunch, anyway. And it causes osteoporosis. I already got bonus hypothyroidism from this mess; I would prefer NOT to receive any additional diagnoses, especially of the life-long variety, please and thank you. We (the royal "we") will start stimming in early September and be done with retrieval and transfer by mid-September. I still get to go to my U2 concert September 12 in Chicago, and we can keep our vacation plans in Austin at the end of September/early October. Not too shabby. I was warned that we are going to begin the stim with ginormous doses out of the gate, and pull back if needed, so I will probably enjoy a great deal more bloating and discomfort. Bring it. Do your worst. Just get me pregnant.
