Hi,

 

I am confused. I am starting my first IVF cycle. I was on marvelon (birth control) for 21 days, and then 3 days after that, the protocol said to start my Lupron, followed by Lupron and Gonal F four days later.

 

BUT, after stopping the birth control I never got my period.

 

The doc says this is not a problem - but it feels counter intuitive to begin an 'egg growth & ovulation suppression cycle' not having 'released' by having a period.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

 

Thanks!

 

Catherine
