To Lupron or Not to Lupron? Help!


It’s been a while since I last posted – mostly because life has been busy.  Hectic and busy.


I’ve now had my hysteroscopy – there was no polyp.  Some stray tissue, but no polyp.  I am unsure how one’s body gets “stray tissue”, but that is apparently gone now.  Which means I am ready to proceed – theoretically stims will begin next week.

This doctor wants to try a slightly different protocol.  She wants to do the injectibles, but with no lupron.  Not using lupron means we have the chance for premature ovulation.  Premature ovulation means we lose the $2,500 we will have invested in the cycle at that point. And we will have to start a new cycle.  Here’s the problem:  I don’t have another $2,500 after this.  I’m kind of against the wall financially after the $45,000  we have spent on this.  There are no more secret stashes – this is it.

On the other hand, isn’t it the definition of insanity to keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different results?  And didn’t I switch doctors because I wanted to see if they had a different approach?

Seriously, this is the most I have ever stressed about whether or not I want to take Lupron.
