Hi Everyone,

Just curious - I finished my BCP - August 16 - Lupron taken IM on August 16 - waiting for AF to appear - when it does - the Estrace starts - I am travelling to my clinic - we based all our flights and hotel stay and ET day on getting AF either Aug 19/20 - meeting with Dr. September 02 and tentative transfer September 08 

Question - how long did it take for AF to appear for you after taking Lupron? 

Am I screwed with booking everything already - trying not to stress - funny -how things work - here I am praying that AF appears sooner than later - who would have ever thought your praying to get AF…...

Hi there Beachlover,

 

Every clinic has a different protocol. Some make you take the Lupron IM on Day 21 of the previous cycle, and then stop BCP three days later. Some, like your clinic, do the Lupron and stop the pill on same day. Either way, you can usually expect your period 3-4 days after you stop BCP. So sounds like your flights are right on target!

 

Good luck with your FET!

I am taking BCP instead of Lupron but I think they both work the same way, suppressing your system.   Last time I took BCP, the day I took my last pill, AF started two days later.  My nurse said anywhere between 2-5 days.

Thanks ladies - I took my BCP as normal 21 on 7 days off - for three months - to regulate my cycle as they were CRAZY post partum (I'm talking a month long) and then on the last day of BCP I took my lupron depot injection - and well low and behold AF appeared overnight - so it took me 4 days to get her - and I will start estrace tomorrow - so phew everything will be ok!!! Good luck to you all on your journeys!
