Since I am in a natural cycle right now, I can't start Lupron until after I ovulate. The plan was for me to start Lupron around one week after ovulation, meaning approximately one week before my period is due. However, here I am on CD 20 and still nothing - no positive OPK or fertile CM...I am not even close to ovulating. Who knows if I will actually ovulate at all. We are supposed to meet with the nurses tomorrow morning to receive detailed instructions and get started with Lupron.
Needless to say, it is becoming quite obvious that our IVF start date is going to get pushed off, at least until I ovulate and it is safe for me to start Lupron. Has anyone had a similar situation with starting Lupron during a natural cycle and waiting to O or better yet, not Oing at all? You know what would make all of the frustration waiting to start this cycle worth it? If it results in a viable pregnancy and the birth of a healthy child. Then I will be able to let go of all of my frustration, agitation, and angst for this bloody cycle that I have been waiting to start since the end of March.
