ESTRADIOL BLOOD TESTS

On Wednesday, January 13th, we went to Mayo for an estradiol blood test. This checks the ovaries response to the stimulation. They also want to make sure that the ovaries aren’t being over stimulated, which can cause OHSS (ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome), and is very dangerous.

I called lab talk to receive my results in the afternoon. My level was great and I was given instructions to lower my dosage of both GONAL F to 75 units and continue on MENOPUR at 75 units. I also am to continue the LUPRON at 10 units.

Today, I went for another estradiol blood test and ultrasound. There are 10 follicles on the right and 9 on the left. Everything looked good, but the follicles still need time to grow.

So, back to Mayo on Sunday for yet another blood test and ultrasound. We’re hoping the follicles are mature enough so we can take the hCG shot on Sunday night!
