Effect of lupride injection

lupride injection is given 18-24 days after menses in preparation for ivf inthe next cycle.In case the lady becomes pregnant in the normal way,by chance, before the injection I am informed that it is harmful for the devoloping baby,if luppride isgiven.In view of this situation, is it possible to detect pregnancy by this time i.e., by say 20th day to avoid further process ? I am asking this question for my 34yearold daughter.

hello
welcome to healthcare magic.
it is very rare for a woman to get pregnant when she is being downregulated with lupride. thats because lupride causes downregulation of the body's hormones , ovulation is suppressed and so no dominant follicle forms and hence no ovultation. so it is never tested. also by a chance there is normal conception at that time nothing happens to the embryo because till up to about 45 days of pregnancy there is an all or none phenomenon, ie if the conceptus is affected and is not normal it will be aborted by the body, however if there is nothing wrong the body will retain the conceptus and the pregnancy will pas that stage. it is only after that there is the period of organogenesis where no medication is considered to be safe (except folic acid and some progesterone support).

Is there any relation between Lupride injection and TSH levels being increased? I am 35yrs old, 5.7ft ht, 81Kgs wt. I have PCO, cornual block in 1 tube and had 3-4 failed attempts of IUI. I would undergo ivf next month, n so doc put me on Lupride injection in preparation for the next cycle. When I did the test of TSH, my results were out of range with 11.31. I take thyroxin 25mg daily. Earlier when I had done this test in January this yr, it was normal. So, wanted to know if the Lupride injection had some effect on my TSH and also will it be a problem if I have elevated TSH levels during IVF???

Hi I have been treated for hypothryoid for 2 yrs and keep having up and down TSH levels. We have been thinking since I take alot of oral estrogen that it is binding with synthryoid in the liver, requiring me to take more. When I take more, then I go the other swing to hyperthyroid. I ve had to take antidpressants since I am always tired, depressed, anxiety from all this low thyroid stuff. We did try switching me to part estrogen patch part oral estrogen which did make the thyroid level stay more consistent. However, then I ended up not being balanced hormonally. I had a total hysterectomy age 28; have been on oral estrogen and progesterone since then. I have tried hormonal cremes and not found the right doses on them either. I have only been put on synthroid and endocrinologist feels any T4 /T3 drug combos would be worse for me due to having to take the T3 part more often, trying to get balanced, especially when I am hard to balance anyway, have history of anxiety, and am sensitive to medications.

Hi, My wife had just gone through IVF process and had the Embryo Transfer on the 25th May 2014 (16 days ago) Proluton Depot 250mg was given on the transfer day itself, and every 3 days after that. The last injection given was on the 6th June. Also given was PREGNYL 5000IU on the day of the transfer and 3 days interval twice(6th June was the last Pregnyl Injection). Today, we made a BLOOD HCG and the result shows negative. What went wrong? Do Pregnyl or Proluton effect the reading of HCG in blood?
