I suspect I'm not responding as "vigorously" as I did 2 years ago to stims. CD7 b/w this morning resulted in no change in my Gonal-F dosage, and a day off from monitoring. I got the message from voicemail, so didn;t have the chance to ask what my numbers were. I'll go back on Sunday (CD9) morning for u/s and more b/w, but until then I continue at 225U Gonal-F twice-a-day, plus the 5U Lupron each morning. Last time, I was lowered to 187.5U Gonal-F on the evening of CD7, and had to return for on CD8 for b/w and u/s. I'm beginning to worry that I may not have enough Gonal-F to get through the cycle. At this pace, one pen lasts two days. I cracked open the third of five pens last night. There's a little left in each "empty" pen, but I don't trust the amount AND I am reluctant to stick myself 4 or 5 times to get one complete dose. My hope now is that I'll have plenty of growing follicles on the u/s Sunday. It didn't occur to me until now that I could not only respond less well, but perhaps not at all. All this money down the tubes, and there may be nothing to show for it. Yikes.
My fingers are crossed.
