    Default Estrogen levels decreasing during IVF

    Has anyone experienced decreasing or stagnating estrogen levels while doing their IVF cycle? I've always hyperstimulated during my cycles so this is a completely new problem for me.



    So far my levels have been:
    Day 6 - 1400
    Day 7 - 1300
    Day 8 - 1300
    Day 9 (today) - 1200

    I do have some follicles growing but a lot less than normal (only 8 or 9 compared to my normal 20 odd - i know this is good but nervous about what it means in combination with my levels)

    Help! Any advice would be great

    Sorry hun, I don't know about the levels. I know it's a bit difficult over the weekend, but could you call your clinic on Monday and ask one of the nurses what it means? I hope it's a good thing and you get a good number of nice healthy eggs.

    Best of luck with this cycle hun.

    Thanks hon, appreciate the support. The clinic has said that there is a possibility of the cycle being cancelled as the hormone levels are very unusual. Quite possibly means that either the eggs are of bad quality (no idea how as up til now they have been perfect and overresponders), my cycle is out of wack, or that there are no eggs in my follicles (another anomaly).
    Will see what happens at the scan tomorrow
