Thanks so much for your response (BrewersFan). I actually was about to call the pharmacy, but decided to try the nurses one more time. I left a detailed message saying "I thought Lupron had to be used for at least a week in order to be effective."
Of course she called back when I could not answer the phone. In her message, she said nothing about suppression (I assumed that's why I was on it, especially since 2 nurses had told me that), and instead said it is being used to prevent cysts (??). Because my previous cycle was cancelled while I still had 9 follicles growing, they want to make sure those follicles don't develop into cysts and delay my next cycle.
I think that's great and all, and I definitely want to deal with cysts-- but wth is going on? I know one of the nurses told me that Dr. Ch.eck wants me to be suppressed before beginning the next cycle (so that we don't have the same lead follicle/early ov problem), but now it seems like they forgot about that and are only focused on the cysts? Uch.
Now I have to call back AGAIN tomorrow and ask: Is the lupron also supposed to be suppressing me (even though I'm only supposed to take it for 4 days?). Should I be taking it for longer? Am I supposed to be taking something else to suppress me?
And also, please get your story straight! So far, I've had 2 nurses saying it's for suppression and 1 saying it's for cysts. I am totally losing my patience with this office!
Thanks for reading my vent!!
