Day 6 – Bloodwork, Ultrasound, Lupron, Menopur, Follistim & Dexamethasone

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

I did blood work this morning to test my estradiol levels.  I also had an ultrasound, which showed some of the follicles responding to the meds.  There were a couple of the right that were at 5cm and 6cm.  On the left side of the ovary there were a couple of smaller ones at 3cm and 4cm.  Each follicle usually grows 2cm every evening.  The blood results showed my estradiol levels are at 51%.  So the percentage is right on track for the number of days I have been on the meds.

My next ultrasound and blood work is on Saturday, August 11, 2012.  The doctor was estimating a possible egg retrieval on Thursday, Friday or Saturday of next week.
