IVF #3

We are starting off to a tricky start. Today was my first monitoring day which is stimulation day 4 for me. My estrogen level was 468 and I have a cyst that measures 42 mm on the left ovary. There were 10 eggs visible but it is still early.

I was hoping for more eggs being that I am on the lupron flare protocol (micrdose lupron protocol) and I am concerned that the cyst will interfere with the progress of my cycle. My medication doses were lowered from 150 menapur to 75 and the Gonal F will remain at 300, no change with the twice a day 20 units of lupron. I return tomorrow for more bloodwork and another sonogram.
