Protocol Is In...



Nurse Nightingale called this afternoon with my brand new protocol.
Here's the plan:
  1. Birth control pills until 1/18/09

  2. Call Nurse Nightingale THE MINUTE Aunt Flo swooshes in

  3. Baseline on cycle day 2 or 3

  4. Begin 150 mg. Gonal F in the morning

  5. Begin 150 mg. of Menopur at night

  6. When follicles reach 13 mm, begin using Cetrocide

If everything goes according to plan (and I am based in reality this cycle, so that's a big IF), egg retrieval and transfer should be sometime early February.

I know very little about Menopur and Cetrocide other than that I am being fed no drugs which directly suppress ovarian function. Per Nightingale, my brain will be doing the work.

Hmmm..that sounds eerily reminiscent of Clomid, my scary drug.

I'm actually feeling fortunate that Dr. A. doesn't want to do "more of the same". When you're playing around with this kind of money, it's nice to know there's a little variety in the gamble, particularly when last time was such a flop.

Here's to a very expensive rendezvous with the pharmacy....

Good luck!! I'm so rooting for you!!

Faith said...

Glad they're "mixing it up" for you. It really does make it seem like they're paying attention, you know? Hugs to you!

This is very similar to my new protocol. Nixing the lupron and doing Ganrilex, adding menopur...

hoping that this does the trick for both of us!!!

Money well spent I hope.

Yay, sounds good! I have never heard of that drug that begins with a C. You'll have to tell us more about it when you know more yourself.

Hope it's nothing like Clomid, however.

I'll be watching your cycle closely, as I think I'll be starting mine maybe next week. Thanks for the update, and I hope this one is it for you!

Menopure was no problem for me - one of my easier shots (other than the mixing...which freaked me out at first).

I'll be reading!

(BTW - I tagged you for Photo Treasure Hunt (sorry!) check my post for more info...)

just me said...

I hope this does not affect you like clomid does. That stuff is horrible!! I'll be praying for you!

Mick said...

Been lurking for a while, which admittedly, for a man is weird. Anyway, good luck. My wife and I have got our fingers crossed for you :-)

Lea said...

So glad you get to move forward and hoping this protocol will be the one! Lots of luck!!!
