IVF Week 2: Possibly canceling cycle this month

Yesterday my Nurse called and took me off of Follistim because my estrogen levels were high. I had to go back this morning and my estrogen level doubled from yesterday. I have to go back tomorrow but its most likely that they are going to freeze my embryos and start over next month. I didn't really understand the part that estrogen played in an IVF cycle until I just googled it and honestly I'm still a little confused. I am so frustrated that my body is not cooperating but thankful because I definitely do not want to go through transfer with an increased risk of a failed attempt. The life of an infertile woman is such a rollercoaster! But God is going to get me through this, it will eventually be my time!

  1. I had the same issues with most of my IVF cycles. What ended up working in the end was a Lupron trigger (instead of hcg) and a fresh transfer. Maybe you could ask about a Lupron trigger instead? Freezing and transferring another cycle is a good option too.

  2. It is a rollercoaster. I had to coast a bit during my 1st cycle to lower levels. The drs do what's best for you. Praying lots for you for this to go as smoothly as it can. Much love.
