I’m trying to start my first IVF cycle. We’re doing an antagonist protocol. I started birth control pills about 3 weeks ago. My last BCP was last Saturday and my period started on Tuesday. I went into the office on Wednesday. They could only see 2 antral follicles. They felt this was not surprising because of the BCPs. (A month ago my AFC was 15.) Went back in this morning for more blood work and my estrogen was still at 18.
The office feels they can’t start stims until my estrogen rises above 20. WTF. So, now I go in tomorrow for more bloodwork and another u/s.
Has this happened to anybody before? I ovulate normally at other times. TIA
