Hi Ladies...i am FREAKING OUT!!!

So I received my calendar today. I’m on the long Lupron protocol, with no BCP.
I feel completely weird about the start dates of the stims. According to this I’ll be starting Gonal F on CD 9…which seems really late for me.

During my injectable IUI cycles, I was often close to ovulating on my own on CD 9!
I know that with the Lupron they will have full control over the cycle, but I really feel that the nurse made a mistake and skipped an entire week. I feel like I should be starting the stims on CD 1 or 2. (13 or 14 March)

Here’s my calendar:

5 March: Lupron (1 vial)
6 March: Lupron (1 vial)
7 March: Lupron (1 vial)
8 March: Lupron (1 vial)
9 March: Lupron (1 vial)
10 March: Lupron (1 vial)
11 March: Lupron (1 vial)
12 March: Lupron (1 vial)
13 March: Lupron (1 vial)
14 March: Lupron (1 vial)
15 March: Lupron (1 vial)
16 March: Lupron (1 vial)
17 March: Lupron (1 vial)
18 March: Lupron (1 vial)
19 March: Lupron (1 vial)
20 March: Lupron (1 vial)
21 March: Lupron (0.5), Baseline Bloods & Ultrasound, Start Stims (Gonal F 250 iu)
22 March: Lupron (0.5), Gonal F 250 iu
23 March: Lupron (0.5), Gonal F 250 iu
24 March: Lupron (0.5), Gonal F 250 iu
25 March: Lupron (0.5), Gonal F 250 iu
26 March: Lupron (0.5), Baseline Bloods & Ultrasound, Gonal F 250 iu
27 March: Lupron (0.5), Gonal F 250 iu
28 March: Lupron (0.5), Baseline Bloods & Ultrasound, Gonal F 250 iu
29 March: Lupron (0.5), Gonal F 250 iu
30 March: Lupron (0.5), Baseline Bloods & Ultrasound, Gonal F 250 iu, POTENTIAL DAY FOR TRIGGER

Egg Retrieval tentatively planned for 2 April.

Of course, the dose, dates etc will be monitored closely and changed as/if needed.

Can anyone please share any thoughts? Suggestions? Concerns?

PS: Sorry this post is so long. I added each day to give a clear visual picture…it helps me see the overview
