I know I could email the RE but I figured I'd get a quicker answer posting here!

So once my cycle starts, s/b Friday, I have to go in on day 3 to get my FSH levels checked and possibly estradol (sp?) I'm sure the RE told me what that means, but I have forgotten! What exactly are they testing and what kind of results are they looking for? I assume this is a blood test, right?

Provided AF starts on time I go in on Oct 25 (CD21) for another test. Is that the progesterone test? Is that a blood test too? What results are "normal"? I start Lupron that day too. Is that an abdominal or hip shot? Any suggestions on the doing the shots are appreciated!

Any help is appreciated; I am feeling a bit overwhelmed dealing with all this medical info and I can't seem to keep it all straight!

On the bright side, our carpet gets installed tomorrow morning - WOOHOO!! I finally get to move all the stuff out of my dining room that's been there for months and back into the living room!!!

I do'nt know the answers to all your questions but I do know that FSH levels will check egg quality. The 21 day (or 7dpo depending on when you ovulation) is the progesterone test. That can confirm if you in fact ovulated and if you have a progesterone issue and would need supplements. Good luck!

Well the fsh will tell them what kind of egg quality they are looking at I think anything under 12 is good. Your estrogen level should be under 60.
The lupron shot is in the abdomen. Its a tiny little insulin needle, you wont even feel it If you are doing the shots yourself then you can ice down your stomach. THats what I did the first time I gave myself a shot..i had to look down to make sure the needle was in (I couldnt make myself watch it go in LOL)
