    Estrogen level dropping

    Would anyone know why my estrogen level is dropping?

    day 8 it was 60
    day 10 it was 54
    day 13 it was 52

    waiting for blood results today.

    Also -my follicles don't seem to be progressing. I ovulated naturally last month but later in the cycle - somewhere around day 36. I don't feel I'm getting all the info that I need so if anyone has any - please let me know. thanks.

    I spoke to the doctor today - she said that maybe this cycle isn't working and she advised me to stop coming in for ultrasounds and blood work until my next menses. I explained to her that I ovulated very late last cycle (and the first menses on my own since all the medication started) and she said come in monday and we'll try one more time. The only problem I have is the ups and downs - I look forward to each month as if it were going to be THE month to conceive but it just ends up disappointing me month after month.

    I wish you the best on Monday. I know the disappointment when a cycle fails. To the doctors its no big deal, but to us its a whole month away till we get that "hope" again. My first medicated cycle was 2months ago when I was put on bravelle. After 6 days my estrogen was only 78 and the dr said that we needed to wait another month and try something different. I did Repronex this month and after just 4days my estrogen was 125, after 6 days it was 575 and after 8 days it was 670. I did IUI on this past Monday and go back for preg. test in 2 weeks. This is my first complete cycle and its totally nerve racking

    That happened to me every single injectable cycle. It is known to happen for us PCOSers. GOOD LUCK
