Today, in addition to the birth control pills I have been taking since CD3, I added the lupron 10 unit overlap. Birth control pills and lupron are given as down regulation to down regulate the LH and FSH.
I did the lupron injection this morning and have had a low dull headache all day long. I am going to take Tylenol shortly and then take a quick afternoon nap. Headaches are no fun.
I will be doing Lupron injections until Sunday and then I have been given instructions to stop the pill and Lupron after Sunday. I have a baseline appointment scheduled for Wednesday, April 8th. They will be checking for activity in response to the meds I have been taking. Within a week of stopping the birth control pills and Lupron, I should get a period and then I have another baseline and immediately start the antagonist protocol: ganirelix.
I will keep you updated !
