Well, it went well!! My doc doesn't do antral follie counts, they just said it all looks very quiet and suppressed. They taught me all the injections to do and when and how. I will be doing 250units of Follistim and 10 units of low dose hcg, 5 units of lupron and take this doxycyclene stuff. Brian does not want to take the antibitotics, do you guys think he will be ok if he just doesn't take them. It says you have to take them with food and that being in the sun would cause sunburn bad, and he is in the sun every single day at work, so he really does not want to take them. What do you guys think??? Other than that, eberything is on track.WOOT

That's great that your baseline went well! I would definitely make DH take the antibiotics -- it's possible for him to develop an infection that would require you to cancel your IVF cycle. There are other ones he could take that wouldn't make him sunburn -- maybe you could talk to your doc about getting a different prescription? DH & I will be starting our antibiotics tomorrow!! He took doxy as an anti-malarial when we are travelling in Africa (I took something else because of my "clear" skin!) -- MAKE SURE TO TAKE IT WITH FOOD -- he threw up the one time he didn't.

Yay Sandy! I'm glad all is well and you're ready to proceed.

As for the antibiotics, neither I or DH ever took them with any of our IVF cycles - it was never even suggested. I can see the benefit of them though as far as erring on the side of caution.

Well, I never even thought about this, but Brian said NO WAY!!!!...... Dumb me lol, he is a welder. SO every day at work, he arcs and ther eis no way he could possibly put sunscreen on constantly!! The light from his welder torch thing is stronger than sunlight by far and it goes through his clothes. He would have a horrible rash constantly.He told me to call the doc today and tell them that there is no way he can take this medicine. And after thinking about it especially with him being a welder, and looking up the rashes you get online and seeing pictures, I do not want him to take it either. I hope the doc is ok with it, well he kinda has to be kwim.
