Have you taken ethinyl before? Do you know how your body reacts to it?
Some people need to be on ethinyl longer than a few days. In June, I had to be on it a week or so. In August, only a few days. It depends on how your body reacts to it and how quickly your FSH comes down.
Do you have a blocked tube or whatever? Is there a reason why you HAVE to do IVF? Can you BD instead? When working with Dr. Ch-eck, I think it's good to have a cycle or two to give him a chance to learn how your body reacts to different meds so that he can put together an optimal combination for "THE" IVF cycle. So - in that perspective - the cycle wouldn't be a bust.
P.S. For what it's worth - I'm going nuts, too. My local RE has decided not to do labs on Saturdays - will draw, but no results until Monday. I've been looking all over for a place that would do same day results. This is important, because I've done too many cycles with Dr. Ch-eck and I know that my day 2 numbers count. My FSH can be 6.... or 76.... so it's not like I can just take ethinyl and wait until Monday.
