Stupid IVF ??? Anyone want to answer


Ok so this is my first IVF and you would think that I have spoken to noone and know nothing. I seem to call the office at least 3 times a week. Every time I leave the office and feel like I know it all and I get home and realize I heard nothing. Anyways I was on bcp until thurs and that is the day that I did a baseline us. They told me that I had 13 follicles so that is my starting amount, right? Also I am taking femera oral, follistim and menipur. Am I right in remembering that I take the follistim in the am and the menipur in the evening. Anyone been on a similar protocol? I swear that they did not tell me what time to take these but maybe they meant to and didn't cause I chewed a doc out? I will call on Monday and confirm but if anyone out there wants to sooth my worries, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey I am unfamiliar with IVF, but didn't want to read and run. I am on my second month of injectibles and my first month of IUI. I can tell you that for me remember when to take the meds and how much can at times be really confusing, especially with all the added stress and not to mention my hormones are going crazy but my doctor always writes it down for me before I leave. Which medicine to take, the amount, and which cycle day to take it on, it really helps me. I usually leave it up on the fridge and my husband can see it and knows whats going on as well. Anyways, I hope this helps a little, sorry it's not the answer you are looking for.

Hi!
I was on a similar protocol last cycle. I can tell you that I took the menipur at night but they told me I could take it anytime after like 4pm. (As long as it was the same time everyday) But it was because they said they would have the blood work for the day back by then and could call me with any changes. I could then make the change for that day since I wouldn't have taken it yet.
And I always wrote everything down. Especially the schedule for the medications, amounts, and which days to take them (I was on a patch to change once a week etc.) So that's my advice, write it down! I sometimes think that IVF brain is like the primer for pregnancy brain! lol! Goodluck!!
