Suprefact or buserelin acetate is a medication that has been designed to mimic the actions of natural gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH or LHRH), a hormone released from the hypothalamus gland in the brain.

The hypothalamus uses GnRH to send messages to the pituitary gland in the brain, which then sends messages to the ovaries in females, and the testicles in males, telling them to produce the sex hormones estrogen (females) and testosterone (males).

Normally, GnRH comes from the hypothalamus in pulses. If GnRH came from the hypothalamus all of the time (rather than in "pulses"), it would have the opposite effect and "turn off" hormone production. This is how buserelin works.

So basically it is an ovary suppressor.

I believe they want you on BCP to get your cycle regulated & in a certain state, so to speak, my clinic told me if my cycle did not regulate after the prometruim I would have to go on BCP for 3 months!

I felt the same way about "missing" months of trying if I had to go on the BCP, but I am putting my trust in the doc, the clinic I am going to has a high rate of success.

I would try to call your clinic & ask why they want you on BCP & for how long just so that if you need to be on them for a certain length of time your not dragging it out.

Good luck!!

yes i ask the nurse and she said i have to set up an appointment and they will go over it with me.

I didnt start bcp this month because i couldnt get it in time. plus i just thought it was crazy to give up even 1 month of trying.  I know it is only about a 1 in a billion shot but i will take the chance.

I am just starting an IVF cycle. I get the impression that everyone has different protocol. I am to take suprefact and puregone. My clinic said they dont do bcp at all. I down regulate for two weeks and then start the puregone. have you asked the nurse the questions you posed on here? Let us know what they have to say. best of luck!

My doctor recommended that we stop our first cycle since we didn't yield enough mature eggs for retrieval. I stopped taking my meds and one week later I had some spotting.  The spotting lasted about 1 day.  I guess my body is regulating back to my normal cycle.  I'm not due for my period for at least another week. I called my doctor and he couldn't explain the spotting. He told me to monitor it and give me him an update next week.  I'm anxiously awaiting my next cycle. We can't wait to start again in April.  I hope we have success with the 2nd cycle.  

I'm wondering if anyone else had a similar experience after having stopped their cycle due to not having enough mature eggs?  How long did it take to get back to normal?  Was there spotting?

I just came back from the second appointment with my accupuncturist.Once we got there she checked my pulse in the beginning of the session. Then she asked me if I tracked my ovulation for this cycle( which I didn't). She told me that she won't be putting any needles in my stomach because I may be pregnant. At that DH & I looked in each other in shock and confusion because we both know that we really didn't try this month as DH wasn't feeling well. We bd once last week( which may have been around the beginning of my ovulation cycle about CD 11). Just don't know what to make of it. I mean what are the chances for me to getting a bfp??We are planning to travel in a few days. Don't what to do now!!
