OK I Lied

Ya know how, just a few short hours ago, on the bottom of my last post I wrote something to the effect of "I'm going to try not to stress about it" (with regard to my high E2 level)?

Well, shortly after I wrote that, I started searching Dr. Google and well, basically worked myself into a foaming-at-the-mouth balls out lather me up frenzy of panic. I employed such key words as "high E2 day 4 of stims doomed" and "E2 over 1000 IVF failed". Let me tell you, there is a lot of bad news on the internet.

So I finally just bit the bullet emailed my doctor about my concern. And being the incredibly great doctor she is, she emailed back within a few hours (which is amazing for a Sunday).

This was her response:

"Hi Hilary,
Nope, it's not too high. This is usually a very good sign. We like the
E2 to be around 400-800. If it's a little higher we just back off a
bit. If it was over 2,000 or less than 300 I would be worried. It
likely means you have lots of follicles growing.
Take care"

To say this reply made me feel better is an understatement. Sweet, sweet relief.
