And we're off...Follistim cycle #3 has begun. My doctor listened to my concerns about having only one viable follicle last cycle, and has agreed to up my Follistim dose. We're going with 75 IU for 3 days, then dropping to 50 IU for 2 days before checking in on the follicles.
I feel very gratified that she was willing to listen, and make a change, even though she thought the last cycle went well. Before starting all of this, I didn't realize how much of IF treatment is just trial and error. It's like my own private biology experiment, and every month we take what we learned and create a new plan. I'm feeling good about this new plan, and am excited to see the results.
