My fiancee went in for a follicle check this morning after 100 mg of Clomid days 5-9. Today is cycle day 13 and she has two follicles on her right ovary, 14mm and 15mm. The doctor gave her Ganirelix and told her to inject it on Sunday morning “just in case” she ovulates too soon. I feel like he is doing this out of convenience because he doesn’t want to go into the office to recheck her on Sunday, but maybe that’s just me feeling frustrated for her (and for me). I wonder if his plan would be any different for her if today was Monday instead of Friday? So, the plan is the take the Ganirelix (.5mL) on Sunday morning (he said whenever she wakes up, sometime between 7-10) which will prevent her from ovulating and then to go back for labs and ultrasound on Monday morning. From there, he will hopefully trigger her and bring her back on Tuesday for insemination. This will be her third IUI. I just don’t understand about the Ganirelix – she will have an injection to prevent her from ovulating, and then 24 hours later she will have the HCG shot to make her ovulate/release? How long does the Ganirelix shot last in her system and might this prevent her from being inseminated this cycle? Thanks, in advance!
