Hello fellow warriors,
I'm 43 and my husband is 48. We've done 2 IUIs, 2 medicated TI with Letrozole, and have now decided to do our IVF before it's too late.
I'm currently on Elpis Prime (1 pump of Androgel, Estrace 2mg x2 a day, and Provera starting on cycle day 22) and I will be starting my Antagonist protocol (Rekovelle 12, Menopur 225, Saizen 0.5ml x 10d, on Feb 17th, starting Cetrotide on Day 6).
Just wanted to see if anyone is starting IVF this month and share thoughts/concerns, knowledge, and advice as we go through this journey.
Question: Do you get any ultrasound test done after prime and before starting STIM to make sure if prime medications have prepped my ovaries properly? My clinic just wants me to move straight into STIM injections. I'm just concerned that prime medications may have messed me up. In the past, I have responded poorly to fertility medication like Letrozole. I'm just wondering if I can ask for Ultrasound...but not sure if they can really tell how effective prime medication was via ultrasound.
