Hi everyone, I am new to posting here but have been reading the threads here for a few months. I have a question if anyone can offer some insight…
I have PCOS (and some other issues) and in August my RE advised IVF as our best chance to conceive. However, before we can start, my ovaries need to get back to “normal.” U/S showed that I have over 30 follicles per ovary so obviously we can’t start stimming yet until they are all gone. I have been on the Lupron Depot shot 1 time a month for the past three months. The Lupron is meant to shut my hormone production down (like menopause) and ideally the follicles would be reabsorbed.
I had my third shot two weeks ago and an u/s last week and unfortunately the follicles are not gone. :grr: My RE has put me on two weeks of Femara and he feels confident this will eliminate all remaining follicles and we should be able to start stimms on 11/18.
Has anyone ever used this protocal in a similar situation?
Thank you for any help or insight you can offer!!
