Just to give you all a idea of what you get for IVF
4 boxes of Menopur (stim)
1 box hcg (trigger shot)
2 boxes Crinone (progesterone)
sharps container, alcohols swabs, bandages
4 boxes of Follistim cartridges (stim)
5 boxes of Ganirelix (stops me from ovulating) pre-filled syringes
misc. syringes and needles (for the Menopur and hcg)
Sounds like fun, doesn't it? LOL. So, for this cycle (well, my July/Aug cycle) my doc has me on a progesterone withdrawl protocol. Basically, I will take Crinone (progesterone) for 7 days and stop. Once I get AF, I'll go in for baseline b/w and u/s on Day 2. Start Menopur and Follistim on Day 2... typically, I'll stim for 10-11 days. Ganirelix will be added in probably around Day 6 or 7 (so 3 shots a day for 4-5 days.. ICK!) Then when things finally look good, hcg trigger and 36 hours later egg retrieval!
Then, depending on how many embryos I'll have a 3dt of 3 embryos or a 5dt of 2 embryos. I've never made it to a 5dt transfer but one can always hope.
Just thought I'd share.
