Still no AF
Today will be shot 12 of Lupron and 5 days off birth control. Still no period. It makes me a little nervous that I haven’t had a bleed since I got cancelled last time, but the nurse who taught me how to inject the lupron didn’t seem too worried. I called into my RE’s office this morning and of course she wasn’t in today. I played phone tag with my patient coordinator a bit. The first message said well since you haven’t had your period yet we will do a p4 (preg test and progesterone check) and then see if we can bring on a bleed. I was like no. That is not what the nurse said. Since I work so close by I walked up there and talked to her myself instead of playing more phone tag. I told her what the nurse said and she said she would talk to another nurse to clarify, but that it probably will be fine. She called me back just as I was getting home that tomorrow will be everything. Baseline, lots of blood work, pap, etc. They said they will see what is going on and if things look quiet than I can start the follistim. It makes me nervous that my cycle will be screwy like it was the last time I didn’t get a period, but I’ll ask tomorrow. Have any of you guys been on the lupron protocol and not gotten your period and had everything still be ok in the end? I hope that I get someone nice. I will be doing this all in my lunch break so I will have to make sure I have something in my stomach before I go.
I also scheduled to have my drugs sent tomorrow to work. I am getting another 14 day kit of lupron and my low dose hcg. I really hope they won’t tell me that I can’t continue after I ordered all these drugs. The low dose hcg is only good for 30 days. What else? Not much. I didn’t not sleep well last night. That didn’t help with me being cranky, teary at the end of the day. I can’t wait till tomorrow is done and over with. I want to have my drugs in hand, the pap over, and know that I don’t have any cysts and that I can start with the follistim.
