    Estradiol Levels (Success and children mentioned and in some avi's)

    Since all of us are basically hanging day to day on estradiol levels while doing our IVF cycles I thought we could list our levels and the day of stim and type of stim and how many eggs were finally retrieved. Obviously everyone is different- every protocol and patient unique -but I thought it might help to see what other poeple and clinics are doing as a record. I have only just started my cycle but thus far this is what I have....


    STIM MED: follistim
    ESTRADIOL LEVELS:
    day 4 post-stim: 80 (No ultrasound done)
    day 6 post stim: 280 (no ultrasound done)
    EGGS RETRIEVED:
    EGGS FERTILIZED:


    (rest of cycle info is still pending...-I'll add it as it comes )

    Cool idea! I'll go. I have PCOS (so am a high responder) and I stimmed fast. You will see that my E2 levels were ridiculously high. My RE said I was in the 98th percentile for the clinic -- 98% of people had lower levels than I did.

    STIM MED: Bravelle & Menopur
    ESTRADIOL LEVELS:
    after 5 days of stimming (morning of day 6) -- E2 at 1,758
    u/s: 15 follies on left, 13 on right, largest at 10-11mm, lining 8mm

    after 7 days of stimming (morning of day 8) -- E2 at 4,271
    u/s: 16 follies on left, 15 on right, largest at 15-16mm, lining 11mm
    (started coasting -- lupron only)

    morning of day 9 -- E2 at 8,394 (no u/s)
    morning of day 10 -- E2 at 7,332 (no u/s)
    triggered that night

    EGGS RETRIEVED: 27 (25 mature)
    EGGS FERTILIZED: 21 (with ICSI)

    Notes:
    1) I cycled with a cyst that was 40mm across, this was drained during ER.
    2) I had many risk factors for OHSS so transfer was postponed. I did not get OHSS but am glad we did not take the chance.

    Thanks for starting this. I had some questions about levels and this is helpful.
    I am going this morning for more bw and us. RE was concerned about a dominant follicle. I thought about ohss. I started on day 3 feeling very bloated already but no other symptoms.

    STIM MED: Gonal-F and Luveris
    ESTRADIOL LEVELS:
    bl - 26
    day 4: 901 - No U/S
    day 5:
    day 7:
    EGGS RETRIEVED:
    EGGS FERTILIZED:

    My first IVF was an 8 day stim cycle. But I was younger (26) so it was hard to tell how I would respond now.

    day 10: 507 (u/s - at least 6 follies on each side)
    day 12: 1127 (u/s - at least 6 follies on each side)
    day 13: 1785 (finally triggered!!!!!)

    EGGS RETRIEVED:16
    EGGS FERTILIZED:16 (one fertilized abnormally)

    transferred 2 5-day blasts(4AB and 4BB) / froze 11 blasts(all very good to excellent quality) / 2 stalled at 8 cells

    RESULT:BFP (twins) - lost both @ 8w3d as a result of immune issues

    Good luck to all!

    Had b/w & u/s today for Day 7. Only had 2 follies, one on each side. Appartently either a slow responder, too suppressed from Lupron and/or dominant follie just took over and suppressed the other follies.

    But not all is lost, instead of IVF, will be doing IUI. RE said both follies are great 22mm, 20 mm and an excellent lining so they didn't want to waste an opportunity and decided to go ahead with IUI. (IUI this weekend.) RE said that they don't like to do ER with only 2 follies. (Would do ER if a patient has a history of only producing a few follies.) Let's hope this isn't the case.


    STIM MED: Menopur & follistim in pm.
    ESTRADIOL LEVELS:
    day 3: 71 (No u/s done) Morning of day 3
    day 5: 163 (no u/s done)
    day 7: 301 Morning of day 7

    EGGS RETRIEVED: cancelled
    EGGS FERTILIZED: cancelled
