Dr. Dunn explained that we needed to do IVF, due to stage IV for endometriosis and for PCOS. The FSH he recommended was Follistim pen. I did use the pen and followed the directions according to the nurse. I did use the pen directing from the nurse at 275 IU but the next day I was told not 275 to use 225. I was misinformed. Overall, I was able to retrieve 9 eggs, (I only have my right ovary) 5 was turned into embryos. Only, 2 transferred and as a result it was a negative cycle.

The next day, I was told a different amount that I was suppose to use by the same nurse. 275 IU vs. 225 IU. Overall, I did not have any issues with the nurses.
