High E2 but low follicles

Post by DeeLo » Fri Apr 08, 2016 10:19 am

Hi Doctor,

I am 39 year old female AMH 2.68 FSH 6.74 AND MY Antral Follicle Count was 36.
I am in my first IVF treatment... Took BCP for 14 days and then Menopur 150mg, Gonal F 300. on Day 5 ultrasound had 6 follicles over 10mm but my E2 was 930. Started Cetrotide on Day 6. My Day 8 Ultrasound still showed only 6 follicles ranging from 10mm-18mm and me E2 was 1978.

My question is: Is there a reason you believe my E2 is high but not producing that many follicles?
With my AFC so high I thought I would produce many more follicles. Doesn't it correlate?
Also, with my levels and age, is this a similar protocol you like to start women on or do you prefer another?

Thanks in advance! :)

I'm sorry you're going through this. Your questions are very specific and I recommend that you speak with your reproductive endocrinologist about this.
