Of course...a follow up call.......

I was assuming since my IVF coordinator didnt mention my other labs that I was home free. I had a voicemail today that said my CBC and Chem profile look great BUT my Vitamin D is extremely low. My Re said its standard for them to check it bc research has shown Vitamin D and infertility have a correlation. Normal is 32-100...mine a slim 14.6!! So, I will be taking supplements. Also, I am a bit nervous because my insulin level was 15.6 and they like to see it below 15 SO I will be taking glucaphage too...BUMMER! Back on a diet for me and hopefully with some lifestyle modifications I can correct that ASAP! Anyone else have experience with either???? The good news is I still will continue my cycle Smile

I've never had any experience with either. Sorry you have to have that added stress. Maybe increasing your Vit. D will be a good thing and you would have a positive result from this cycle. I'm glad you are still able to continue things as planned!

No experience either but at least both seem pretty easily correctable and you can still continue with your cycle so still very positive Smile

I'm sorry for the frustration. Glad that it doesn't interfere with your cycle. Good luck w/ the meds.

No experience with either. But I remember how bummed I was when I found out my thyroid was low right before I started stims. I was devestated. But after a month of meds my levels were back to were they were supposed to be. Keeping my fingers crossed and hope ur levels come back to normal. KUP!
