I am currently in my IVF Cycle. I take microdose lupron (at the 20 mark( in the morning and night, and follistum (225) and menpour (1 powder) at night. Yesterday evening when i was preparing my lupron, follistum and menopour, i realized i couldnt recall taking the lupron in the morning. I just simply had no idea (My scheduled was not normal because i had an early morning doctor's appointment). I called the after hours doctor on call and told him the situation he told me to go ahead and take my dose plus the missed dose (even if i did indeed take it in the morning) and it should be no harm and no foul. On monday i have my doctor's appointment to find out whether or not i will be giving myself the HCG injection (that evening) for egg retreival on wednesday. Could i have messed anything up??
