Would anyone happen to have an example calendar for a short protocol at Conceptia? I'm finishing with Zolodex and the plan is to go straight into ivf with Suprefact and Puregon I believe. I don't know doses or what days injections start and go until or when appt. days are. Just looking for a rough idea what to expect before it starts. Thanks :)

I was at a different clinic but when I had a short protocol I called in cycle day 1, first US cycle day 3 and they told me that day what dose to take.  Went in every few days for bloodwork and US and they adjusted doses based on what the bloodwork results were.  I was told you're on stims for 7-12 days depending on how you respond then a day off then a trigger shot and a cocktail of other things.  the clinic walked me through it every step of the way and gave me a calendar that was modified as we went.  because they change plans as you go based on how you respond, no one can tell you exactly what the cycle will look like.


best of luck!
