To Cancel or Not to Cancel?

This mornings monitoring only showed 4 strong follicles. Afterwards, the hubs and I spoke about it, and we left a msg with the nurse asking if we should cancel this IVF attempt. She called back and said there are “potentally 4-6 follicles.” But really, do we move forward with those #s? We don’t have unlimited tries here.

There seem to be less follicles as the cycle progresses, or there’s been some serious miscommunication.  One thing I do know, it’s clear my body produces significantly less follicles on the MDL.

Edited to add:  Based on my E levels (at 1150) and the fact that they saw 5 strong follicles this morning, they want me to trigger tonight and proceed with ER on Thursday morning. We are honestly torn. As I explained to my nurse, this is a very costly decision for us. Either way we trigger tonight and tomorrow I will see my actual doctor at morning monitoring. DH is coming with me, and we plan to discuss this face to face with her.

  1. I understand what you are going through. We started out with about 8 or 9 and then the last monitoring appointment there was only 5 and they also discovered the polyp. So we went back and forth with the doctor about whether to cancel or not. We went ahead with it and ended up with 3 embryos.
    Whatever you decide know that you are making the right decision for you. Hang in there!!
