I hope I explain this correctly because I am a little confused.  I will enclose the details of my mini-ivf calendar to give some insight.  (yes, I have called my Dr's office and waiting for a call back at the end of the day).  Just nervous and curious is all, and looking for some other input since this is my first time.

 

This cycle is mini-ivf

 

I was on ocp for about 3 weeks, on Oct 21 I started Lupron 0.1ml every day.  On Oct 24, I took the last ocp and was supposed to start a light period (possible absent period) a few days later.  No period, figured it was just an absent period.

On Oct 28 I started Gonal-F 150iu, I had my first US on Nov 2, and he cut my Gonal-F down to 75iu (lots of follicles)

I had another follow-up US today Nov 5, about 9 (maybe 10) follicles, the few of the biggest which are "9".  Problem is, I started what seems to be my period with some light cramping.  He said he would see me back this Friday (On Nov 9) for another follow-up and to see if this cycle was salvageable.  

 

I'm a little thrown off by all this.  IVF is so new to me, I'm feeling a little lost and very discouraged.

My clinic always told me it's not a big deal even if you get your period during stims as they are basically taking charge (chemically) of your system and in growing your follicles. Uterine lining has no effect on what is happening in your ovaries...at least that is how I understood it. I wish you luck in your cycle.

Returnable,

Makes sense.  Maybe I'm just freaking out so much because I'm still so very confused by it all.  Hopefully all goes well and I can laugh at my spazzing out on Dr. Google for nothing after it is all said and done.  If not, I'm sure it's a learning experience for all involved.

My second cycle I had a bleed right in the middle of stimming. I was freaking out thinking I would have to cancel but when I went for the U/S the next morning they said everything was fine and they couldn't tell I had even bled. Hoping it works out the same for you!

Kristeen033... this cycle was canceled... starting my period mid stims screwed it all up ... he said everything looked great otherwise... so now I'm back on the birth control pill and waiting for my new calendar.  <3
