Note: The calendar shown above is an example of how an IVF cycle may evolve. It is possible that the ovarian stimulation process is shorter or longer than above depending on your response. A Day3 or Day5 (blastocyst) transfer will be based on the embryo development. A pregnancy test is performed 14 days past transfer.

Key to Calendar

Blood and ultrasound = blood test for hormone levels and transvaginal ultrasound to measure follicle development in ovaries.

Lupron = subcutaneous injection of a medication called Lupron. Taken once daily.

FSH = subcutaneous injection of a medication containing follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), and lutenizing hormone (LH), which causes growth and egg development in women. Plan 10-14 days of FSH/LH injections.

Ovidrel/HCG injection = intramuscular injection of a medication called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, final maturation of oocytes (eggs) prior to retrieval.

Progesterone = intramuscular injection of progesterone oil, which helps to prepare a receptive uterine lining for embryo implantation. Supports a pregnancy.

Ganirelex Acetate/Antagon - Cetrotide = prevents ovulation and is started 5-8 days after FSH start.
