Hi all - our RE decided to use a lupron trigger prior to our IVF retrieval today to avoid OHSS (my estrogen levels were kind of high). We had 15 eggs retrieved.
Anyway, everything I’ve read says that Lupron works great in avoiding OHSS, but “aggressive” luteal support is needed. My RE always includes PIO and estrogen patches in his protocols, so he’s not changing anything (like increasing the dosages). I start PIO tomorrow - day after retrieval - and estrogen patches the day of transfer in 5 days.
I’m just worried that nothing was changed due to the Lupron trigger. Perhaps his protocol was conservative enough already that nothing further is needed? Has anyone else done a lupron trigger and if so, what was your luteal support (dosage and when you started)?
Thanks in advance!!
