My I to the V to the F is On!

Walk by FAITH not by SIGHT Corinthians 5:7

Oh Happy Friday
Having been on BCP's for the past 3 weeks, I was happy to go to Dr. B's on Friday to have my IVF Suppression Check, Ultra-Sound and Blood Work. I got the ALL CLEAR and received my IVF Calender and Nurse K told me what Meds she would be ordering for me from Freedom Fertility Pharmacy.

My Protocol
I will be on the Antagonist: Step-Up/Step-Down Protocol. I have PCOS and I will continue taking Metformin. I also have one copy of MTHFR C677T and a small amount of Annexin V Antibodies so I will be on low dose Predisone, one Baby Aspirin per day and Lovenox. The main benefit of the protocol is that women with PCOS tend to be at a higher risk of OHSS (Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome)which can cause the ovaries to enlarge severely and require hospitalization. With this protocol Dr. B can trigger me with Lupron and prevent the risk of OHSS as opposed to triggering me with HCG, which can make OHSS symptoms worse.

Moving Forward by Faith
Saturday my Meds arrived from Freedom Fertility Pharmacy and I start Stimming on Tuesday. I am praying that everything goes smoothly with this cycle and that God's will be done in me and Mr. Blessed Bud's lives...
