Hi, I am on decapeptyl mthly injections about to take my 3rd one, can you get pregnant on these? Also can I start IVF right away? Thanks!

Hi, I am on decapeptyl mthly injections about to take my 3rd one, can you get pregnant on these? Also can I start IVF right away? Thanks!

Unlikely: Decapeptyl injections are very similar to Lupron (leuprolide) and both turn off the reproductive cycle resulting in no periods, no ovulation and low estrogen levels. Low estrogen levels make patients feel menopausal so often we use add back therapy to decrease the side effects. The first cycle you could ovulate or may have already ovulated so could be pregnant. After that month pregnancy is very unlikely. ...Read more

It helps if they are warmed to room temperature before sue, if that's what you are asking. Best wishes with your IVF! ...Read more

Gynact: Is a trade name for leuprolide acetate, and is sometimes used in IVF: 1) for women with endometriosis to suppress the disease before starting IVF, 2) in a micro-dose form to do a 'flare' protocol.

Took BCP for 32days before starting Triptorelin for IVF. On day 9 of the injection my menstruation started. Is this normal?

Took BCP for 32days before starting Triptorelin for IVF. On day 9 of the injection my menstruation started. Is this normal?

Probably yes: This sounds like you are describing a "down-regulation" cycle, in which case this would be approximately correct. I'm having to guess that you are down-regulating, if your doctor had a different protocol in mind, this might not be as intended. Check with your doctor or feel free to resubmit here with more information about your intended stimulation plan. Good wishes. ...Read more
