Excellent Responder

I had my first monitoring appointment today to see how I'm responding to the stimulation drugs. I'm happy to report that I am an excellent responder! In fact, I'm responding a bit too well. Lan could see 12 follicles on one ovary and 16 on the other. (In theory, each follicle develops one egg, although I'm told that there are normally more eggs than can be seen by ultrasound.) In order to avoid becoming overstimulated, I have to reduce my dosage of Gonal-F to one vial a day instead of two and for the next five days I have to go in every morning for bloodwork and a sonogram. That's right: every day for five days. I'll be spending lots of quality time on the beltway.


  1. Well good for you! I think my ovaries have been kind of active lately too. Last week's ovulation really kind of hurt, but maybe that's because it was on the right side. For the past couple of months, I've been ovulating on the left side, so maybe my right ovaries are just out of practice.

    I love how in tune with my body I am.

    Have fun with all the driving!

  2. I can usually feel it when I ovulate too. That'll come in handy when you're trying to get pregnant!


Give it to me straight!
