What the UPS fairy brought

I got a present in the mail today: 5 pounds worth of drugs. Check it out.

Wow! When do you start?

Which one of the drugs suppresses ovulation? I took ganarelix for this purpose, but, it is evil and I'm looking for an alternative.

Keep us posted on your IVF schedule. I hope everything goes well for you.

I think Lupron is the one that suppresses ovulation.

In terms of starting: I'll take the birth control pill for about four more weeks. Start Lupron in mid-September, stims (that's the Gonal-F and Repronex, which are mixed together) a week or so later. The embryo retrieval will probably be at the beginning of October. This is taking longer than most people because I opted to delay things by a week to make it easier for me work-wise.
