IVF#1 slow reacting


Hi all,

I'm on my first IVF cycle and I'm stressing myself out by my results so far with my stims. My E2 on stim day 3 was 51. RE upped my Gonal F to 300 from 225 and kept Menopur at 150. Stim Day 5, E2 was only 146. RE said to stay on 300 Gonal F and 150 Menopur. I have an E2 again tomorrow 12/1 as well as my first u/s.

I know my E2 levels are low, and everything I read indicates at Day 5 I should be way up in the thousands.. Do I have anything to worry about? My injections are IM, so you'd think I'd react better to the stims.

My RE doesn't seem too concerned, but I don't want to be canceled as this is our one and only shot.

During day 2 and day 3 of stims I had the bloating/nausea/hotflashes/rock feeling ovaries and the ping and pangs in the ovaries. After day 3 I've not felt anything, it seems the bloating is going away as well as all the previous symptoms I have. I basically feel normal.

Any advice or stories would be appreciated as I'm starting to lose any hope for success already.

Me:39 DH:49

How do the ultrasounds look? Are they able to tell you how many follicles and sizes? My first ultrasound was day 5 of stims and my RE said “hmmm...I was expecting them to pop more by now”, by day 7 there were tons. I stimmed an extra day (11 days) and ended up having 33 eggs retrieved - 24 mature. RE was estimating 10! My e2 levels were high though.

Hi Ask,

I had my first ultrasound today and my Day 7 stim E2 test. The E2 is now 386 and the ultrasound shows 5 follicles on the left and right that are <10. 1 on my right that is a 12, and a 29 on my left that they are classifying as a cyst now.

my RE told me to stay on 300 Gonal F and 150 Menopur for the weekend along with Ganarilix now. Monday I'll have another E2 draw and ultrasound.. Maybe over the weekend they'll wake up and more will grow?

Yes, I was a late bloomer, so to speak! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!
