I am hoping for some feedback from anyone who has gone through IVF. My husband and I are starting IVF and I have noticed a few things that I have not seen in other IVF posts. For a lttle background info-I am 42 years old, T1 diagnosed as a baby, no complicationsand in excellent health and currently on a pump and CGM. I was pregnant late last year but miscarried at 9 weeks. Once we got the OK to try again this year we did Clomid for 5 months with no success and then did 2 rounds of timed intercourse (with the Ovidrel trigger shot), also with no success. During the timed intercourse I took progesterone suppositories (Endometrin) for the two weeks following the trigger shot. During all of this I had no swings in my numbers or any real reactions to the meds. I noticed on quite a few other discussions that progesterone did impact some people where their numbers started going up. I am currently taking the Lupron shots and have just started the Gonal-F shots. This is where I am noticing a difference. The Gonal seems to make my numbers spike IMMEDIATELY and take several hours to taper down. I have increased my basal to 130% to counteract this. Has anyone else had this issue? Once the embryo transfer occurs, I will have to be on low dose steroids for a week. Yikes! Already talked to my endo about this and he says I should be OK with the steroids but I will need to talk to him daily if my numbers go too high. Did anyone else take steroids and if so, how did you do??
Any feedback/words of wisdom are definitely welcomed and needed!
