I’m torn. I used to trust Dr. BFP but now I’m not so sure. Maybe I jinxed him by naming him Dr. BFP?
When the nurse called to tell me my cycle was cancelled she said they had put me on the long lupron protocol because I was young and healthy and they thought the endo was mostly blocking my tubes, but my ovaries responded like I was about 10 years older. What bothers me is that most of the other endo girls I’ve talked to were never put on the LLP because they’re docs expected their ovaries to act older than they are. Why didn’t my doc know this?
Maybe this is what I get for going to Motel Six instead of the Ritz Carlton?
I’ve always wanted to see Dr. Sher in Vegas but the stress of travelling has been a big part of holding me back, and of course the cost…
Currently I’m trying to convince Dr. BFP that instead of the microdose flare protocol he wants me to use he should put me on the agonist / antagonist conversion with estrogen priming protocol (A/ACP+e2v) that Dr. Sher recommends. I have a feeling he’ll fight it hard, or just say no. I ran the idea of immunological implantation issues by him when we had our first consult and I could tell he wasn’t a big Dr. Sher fan…
So now I’m torn, do I proceed with a cheap cycle with Dr. BFP and see how it goes, then go with the big guns with Dr. Sher if it doesn’t work? Or do I switch right away if Dr. BFP won’t try this protocol?
If I start travelling for IVF I will have to tell my work about it and I’m not really ready for that, there are so many things to worry about now, I miss the care-free girl I was 2 weeks ago.
