IVF #2, Day 6

Just got home from the doctor's office. Today's ultrasound showed three measurable follicles - one on the left side, and two on the right. There were a few others too small to be measured. Tomorrow night, Ganirelix and Menopur will be added to my daily injection routine. That will prevent my body from ovulating too soon. This means two injections per day instead of one. I have actually had to give myself more than one injection the last couple of nights because the Follistim cartridge on Thursday night was not full. Factory defect, I guess. I've done fairly well with the shots. Just a little bruise on the one where I realized that the cartridge was not full. That kind of threw me off because they are usually over-filled.

During my first IVF, on day six I had one follicle in each ovary, and some that were too small to measure. The doctor also added Ganirelix and Menopur at that point. So things do not appear to be too different than they were a year and a half ago - medically speaking, of course.

I will go in for another appointment on Monday.
