Looking good!

So today I had a blood estradiol (E2) test, and ultrasound to see how I’m responding to the Menopur, and all looks good. 🙂

The annoying part is that they only do the estradiol test at the hospital lab across town, and only from 7-7:30 am. So I had to wake up at 5:30 this morning to get ready and drive east to the hospital, and then drive back west in rush-hour traffic to teach my 8:30 class. Fortunately, the infertility clinic is on this side of town, so making it to my 10:30 ultrasound appointment was no problem.

Anyway, the result is that I have two decent-sized follicles, and one smaller one. This is good news, since our target is 2-3 follicles for IUI. Based on the size of the follicles and on my estradiol (281 pg/mL), the nurse practitioner recommended upping my dose of Menopur from 300 IU to 375 IU per injection, and repeating the blood draw (5:30 am wakeup – Boo!) and ultrasound on Friday. Depending on those results, we may do the insemination as early as Saturday!
