What do monitoring appointments involve?

At your morning monitoring appointments, we will draw your blood to assess your hormone levels. Following the blood draw, we will evaluate your ovaries using an ultrasound. This will show us how your follicles are growing and help us determine your evening medication dosage. It may be 3 or 4 nights of medication at the beginning of the cycle but that will change to every day or every other day. The donation cycle usually lasts for 10-14 days. We’ll provide an calendar for you follow and we’ll call to remind you of your monitoring appointments and advice you of your evening medication dosages.
