I thought everyone had to take bcp


Hello all,
I was told that I will not need to go on bcp and will just go on lupron. I thought everyone had to take bcp. Anyone gone through ivf cycle without the need of bcp?
First ivf in Jan. 12


Hi Miriam723,

I did not need BCP. I was on Lupron and Folistism. Never had to do BCP.

Good Luck with your first IVF! I am on my first as well. Today I find out when my transfer is!


BCPs are primarily used to sync your cycle with the clinic’s schedule. They are not neccessary.
