Got my IVF Calender!!

  • Signed my life away for IVF cycle,, but

Well Obviously, the IVF package I thought I would be signing up for is not quite what I thought it was. Well, our RE used to offer "OBP-- Outcome Base Plan" for 3 cycle IVF package. The most expensive one but we get the % of money back if no live birth. That % depends on your age. That OBP plan is no longer available!!! They say they haven't had that for a while now.. I was like huh?  The new plan is 1,2,3 cycles with no money back. I signed up for 3 cycle one, only because I wanted to have some "insurance" that I am getting most out of it. I would be super lucky if I hit BINGO after 1st try. But the life isn't always so easy. Never known what happens, so that's how I decided.  

  • My Protocol

The nurse ordered all the meds and I paid. Unfortunately, my insurance (as primary) didn't pay anything but my DH's insurance (as my secondary) picked up most everything except $260. So that's all I paid for the first cycle. I was very lucky on this one. I still not quite sure what exactly the nurse ordered for me but I see some meds on my IVF calender I received. 

7/26 instruction on shots with nurse
~ 8/5 I will be on BCP
8/5~8/15 Lupron and Dexamethasone
8/16~8/17 Lupron, Dexamethasone, Follistim, Follic Acid
8/18~8/21 Lupron, Dexamethasone, Follistim, Follic Acid and Luveris
8/22 Lupron, Dexamethasone, Follic Acid and Cipro

RE thinks I will respond to meds well so he puts me on low dosage on most of them. That's a good news for me. :D

8/22 is the day my monitoring starts. I was told to receive another calender.  Looks like ER and ET happen around the end of Aug to early Sep.

I will post more updates soon!

Hey! Thanks for the comment on my blog, looks like we are on almost the same protocol! My husband and I are getting into Vegas on the 20th! As for the Dex, I think all its done so far is counter-act the lupron, lupron makes me sleepy, dex wakes me up, so far I'm doing great! I start stims next Monday.
