Its been awhile since I have updated, life has been crazy. I started on Dr. Lessey’s plan of taking 5mg Letrozole (Femara) for days 5-9 of my cycle. On day 9 I had an ultrasound to check my lining thickness and it was 1.5mm, which is EXTREMELY thin. I also had a freakishly large 30mm follicle on the right side (I suspect leftover from my annovulatory cycle last cycle) and some other follicles, 7-16mm. I started taking 4mg Estradiol, vaginally, immediately and the next day my lining was up to 5.5mm and the 30mm follicle had collapsed, leaving a 18mm dominant follicle. The following day my lining was up to a much healthier 7.5mm, which is still thinner then they like to see but I had another day of Estradiol to take. So with my lining looking healthier, my husband and I decided to try this cycle and see if I could get pregnant and stay that way.
I took a trigger shot of 5000mu Pregnyl, and 7 days after the trigger I will do a booster shot of an additional 5000mu of Pregnyl. Pregnyl is the pregnancy hormone, HCG. Dr. Lessey wants me to do the booster to extend the window of implantation and give an early pregnancy some additional hormonal support. Due to this shot, I cannot take a pregnancy test until the day my period is due, since I could get a false positive result (since pregnancy tests measure the level of HCG in my system.)
So that is where we are, waiting to take the booster shot. Hopefully I will have some good news in the next couple of weeks!
