Blood Levels when using Gonal F and Repronex
 
I just have a question.....
When they are monitoring the blood levels before they do the extraction of the follicles, what are the numbers that they like to see before it actually takes place?

My levels were 363 from Monday, and 546 from Tuesday.

You're referring to estradiol levels (E2). A mature follicle represents an E2 of 150 - 200. This is how the drs gage how many of your follicles are mature. I can't give you an answer on a specific E2 number because it also depends how many follicles have been seen. If you have 10 follicles, they are probably looking for you to be in the 1500 to 2000 range before they tell you to trigger. (and that's assuming they are all mature)

Well tomorrow I go for my ultrasound to see how many are there and w to find out when my extraction and transfer take place next week. Thanks for the info. I'll get mre bloodwork done today and find out how everything looked as of yesterday's test.

Tanya...... have you gotten any news yet? How many follies do you have growing and when are they getting harvested? I'll be starting my 2nd cycle in a few days. I didn't get many embies out of the last cycle (3), so I'm hoping for a more successful cycle this time. Good luck, you must be going soon (if you haven't already). Missy :)

Missy, you'll get more because of the acupunture. My lining went from a 7 to a 9.1!
