update

My E2 came back at 417. I'm shocked. My follicles are so tiny I'm suprised my E2 is so high. Luckly my Re is having me to 2 more nights on the 225 then go in on Friday morning for an u/s. I will probably have to start my ganerellix on Friday but who knows.

I posted on FF in my IVF buddy groups about my E2 levels. I'm curious what they say. I'm shocked it's so high with my follicles so small.

That number sounds fantastic. I wouldn't worry about it being too high. By the way, what is ganerelix for?

Ganerellix is to stop you from ovulating. It also slows down the growth of the follicles so that if you have some that are larger then others it gives the smaller one's time to catch up. It works well for me. I'm worried about the 11mm taking off ahead of the smaller one's but we'll see. My next u/s is on Friday! I bet my E2 just means I have more follicles then she measured!

If a follicle grows too big, is it a problem other than you loose it? Does it just die if it gets too big? Or does it affect the others?

If a follicle gets to big that could mean the egg gets "old" if it gets "old" it is crappy quality and they will probably throw it out (I had one with IVF #1) it doesn't effect the other follicles though. :)
