Morning Doc.
I am wondering if it's normal to have late 'natural' period after a failed IVF??? My period's 7 days late by now...(used to be very regular) should I worry about this?? what's the cause?
Thanks for your time!

The IVF protocol causes very high hormone levels. It is not surprising to have some irregularity after a cycle.
Good luck.

Dear Dr.B. Jacobs,
Thank you so much for your reply.
One more question: Does the IVF protocol cause trouble sleeping and night sweats too?
Have a nice weekend!

The protocol itself should not cause your symptoms, but stress could. Also, if you are on Lupron for a prolonged period of time before stimulation begins, it will cause menopausal symptoms.
Good luck.

Dear Dr. Jacobs,
You are right! I was on Lupron for a prolonged period of time before stimulation began last time(IVF)...
Should I take birth control pills instead next time? what's the difference between Lupron and birth control pills?
Thanks for your time!

I cannot become involved with your care. Your question really needs to be addressed to your RE.
Good luck.
