For those who have taken Estinyl...your thoughts please

I started this cycle taking Estinyl prior to getting AF. My CD 3 numbers were:

E2- 9
FSH- 7.5

In cycles past, my FSH tends to go up a lot after my baseline so for this cycle Check had me continue the Estinyl and retest on CD 10. Those numbers:

E2- 6.2
FSH- 19
u/s showed no follicles
increase Estinyl to 2x day, retest on CD 17, which will be tomorrow

This is really rare for me, to not develop a follicle. I've had much higher FSH's and developed a follicle on my own. So I'm thinking the Estinyl is suppressing me.

But here's my concern- I'm staying on Estinyl to bring down my FSH. But if the Estinyl is suppressing me, isn't it a natural response for my FSH to spike up in order to recruit a follicle? Doesn't it seem like the Estinyl is counter-productive in this case?

I'll ask when I have my callback tomorrow for my b/w, but I wanted your thoughts in case someone brings up something I haven't thought of:)
