At this point, we know that I was on Suprefact to turn off my ovaries in preparation for the FET when I fell pregnant. We now know that Suprefact causes an initial hormone surge before it shuts those ovaries down.  That the initial surge was powerful enough to kick start my lazy ovaries and make me release an egg that was miraculously able to fertilize… all of that is fucking banana’s enough. Suprefact is a crazy drug in my books forever now, even before learning what I am about to tell you, ready? I just found out that… It made me super-ovulate.

Yup, that’s right, I released two fucking eggs that month, not just one! This is un-fucking-believable because I have been on 4 cycles of monitored Clomid use and NEVER was I able to release more than one egg. On a medication that is supposed to CAUSE super-ovulation. On my IVF cycle, whilst drowning myself in Gonal-F, I only matured 6 eggs! SIX!!! When most people get 12+.  But on the drug that is used to shut down my ovaries my body was like “Whelp, here goes nothing” and kicked out two! FROM THE SAME OVARY!

During my most recent ultrasound, they were measuring my corpus luteum which is normal during pregnancy and the ultrasound tech commented that I actually had two of the same size and that we could have wound up with twins.  Shut the front door, lady!  Obviously, one never fertilized or failed to implant as we never had more than the one sack visible, but holy fucking shit… On a month where our timing was apparently epic I released two mature eggs on Suprefact. So, like, if we want any more kids after this do I just… try using Suprefact for it? I mean honestly. I’d like to know.

    Wow, that’s pretty amazing. I’m always surprised by how idiosyncratic our bodies are in terms of how differently people respond. This one takes the cake, though! This will be one time I am stunningly happy to hear of an unusual response to meds!

    Wow! fascinating and it’s cool you actually have a reason for your unexpected pregnancy!

    If infertility taught me one thing it’s that our bodies are weird. A specialist confirmed it to me, shrugging once and saying that we know more about the surface of the moon than women’s reproductive systems. Both comforting and disturbing at the same time.
