Taking hormone treatment to donate eggs and due for lupron. Emotionally unstable. Should I quit all the medications?
You need progesterone.
Welcome to XXXXXXX
If you want to abandon this cycle, you need two things. One is to avoid sexual intercourse for at least 7-10 days & preferably till next menses.
Second is progesterone tablets to prevent excessive bleeding during next menses. Normally we prescribe medroxyprogesterone 10 mg twice daily for 10-14 days, but as this is prescription only drug you need to consult your physician for the same.
But my advice is to go ahead with the cycle, as emotional stress of abandoning the cycle will be much more later.
Hope this helps in decision making.
Let me know if you have other concerns.
Need not go ahead if decision is firm & final.
When you started the whole process of egg donation, you had some purpose in mind. If you don't complete the cycle now, that purpose will not be fulfilled. Whatever emotional instability you are experiencing might be temporary & might fade in few days. Later you should not regret for the decision taken today.
Nobody can force you for egg donation. If you have made your mind & if your decision not to donate eggs is final, you can skip Lupron injection & retrieval. In that case, you need to consult your physician for the prescription mentioned already.
