Default Question for the experts

Sorry ladies for barging in, but I'm so confused and am sure you know much more about this stuff than I do.

I'm on my 1st cycle of injectables doing IUI. 75 follistim Aq at bedtime. d 10 bw showed estradiol in the 70's and u/s showed 2 follicles in the lead with 3 smaller behind them. After that, my doc added ganirelix to the protocol hoping my estradiol levels would have time to catch up. I had b/w and u/s again today, d 12. U/s showed one dominant follicle around 21 and the smaller ones. My lining was o.k. for thickness, but didn't have the 3 layer thing going on yet. B/w is actually lower. My estradiol is now in the 60's. Shouldn't it have gone up? I'm out of my element with the injectables. Is this normal? Why would my estradiol drop or be so low in the first place? Anyone have any ideas or advice for me?

Thanks in advance.
