March 10, 2012 (treatment day 5)

Estrogen level: 1206
Medications: In the evening, no Gonal F, 75 IU Menopur
Follicle number and size: too many to count, 8 mm

I borrow my mom’s car again (thanks mom and sorry about the last minute) and I drive myself to Rockville for some tests.  Today, the largest egg is about 8 mm.  My estrogen level is 1206.

I read up on the side effects of Intrauterine Fertilization (IVF) and learn of a syndrome that develops if you grow too many eggs.  I’m not sure if that applies to me given that I’m only in for egg freezing (not IVF) but of course, that makes me worry considerably…  Thankfully, I have a lovely friend who has gone through the same process twice before and who manages to talk me through my worries and calm me down.
