The road to ovum retrieval

Today was my second stimulation scan and I was told that I was ready for ovum retrieval on Monday.  This is an exciting and scary thought all in one go. They explained I have one ovary working harder than the other, I only have two follicles on one side and about 8 on the other.  But they said that that was normal, which was a relief.

So for the next few days I have an strict drug regime, one last stimulation drug tonight, one last down regulation drug in the morning then a final dose of ‘Ovitrelle’ tomorrow night.  I also have to administer Utrogestan tablets every evening, which doesn’t sound very glamourous at all.

But never mind…it’s all for a good cause…right?

I hope so, as I’m not sure I’ll be able to take the disappointment.
