I started Ganirelix today. My husband and I had the day off today. We went downtown for my ultrasound and blood work, and then planned on going shopping, catching a movie, and getting groceries. My nurse called me at about 10:30 to give me the results of my monitoring. My estridiol is about 332. I have several follicles under 10 on my left and right ovaries. Additionally, on my right ovary, I have one at 16 and one at 13. So, she told me to take my Ganirelix as soon as possible. I was 45 minutes away at the time in Macy's. It's a good thing I wasn't working because I was able to finish up my shopping and get home by noon inject myself. I asked my nurse how I was progressing, and she said that I'm a little bit slow, but we'll see. Hopefully this cycle isn't a bust. I can't remember how big the lead follicle usually needs to get before you trigger. I also don't have any experience with Ganrilex.
Also, the injection sucked. It felt like the needle was pretty thick. I had a hard time sticking it in my thigh, and it felt like it stuck on the way out. Nothing like Follistim which slides in like butter. The Ganirelix has a warning, "do not take if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant." WTF??? I thought that was funny. It also warns that it may cause headaches. Since I've had a headache almost daily, I'm really excited about the prospect of that. Good times. Oh well, it will all be worth it if I end up with a baby one day.
