I'm undergoing an Antagonist cycle. We already had one at the ARGC, and were going to do another - but our NHS funded cycle came along (after 3 years on a waiting list), and we thought we would give it a go.

However, the timings they want us to follow seem very strange. At the ARGC I started Puregon injections on day 2 of my cycle.

This time round, the NHS want me to not start any injections until day 5 of my cycle...... This doesn't make any sense to me, as I thought that if you waited this long, I would alrady have a dominant folicle, and the stimms won't work.

Does anyone else have any experience of starting stims in an Antagonist cycle so late???

Hi Perrier

I'm just about to start an antagonist cycle at IVF Wales and will be starting stimms on CD2.  I have done long protocols it the past and can't really offer any advice but I would certainly question their reason for this.

Good luck with your tx

Hi Perrier,

I'm doing an antagonist cycle & like Andi can't offer any explanation but just thought I'd tell you that I started injecting puregon on day 3.  The stuff that I have read on antagonist cycles seem to start on day 2 or 3 with the antagonist injection coming in on day 6 or 7.  You need to ask your clinic why you are starting on day 5 and what the rationale is, there may be one and if there is you need to know it!

Good luck.

I have done a late start with Menopur (similar) and would not recommend it  - not the best quality eggs etc. Try to get them to change to day 2 or at least 3?

Hello Perrier

I think it is something you should discuss with your clinic hun - so you can put your mind at rest. They may be a very good reason why they have decided on this regime.

Good luck
