Has anyone ever used human growth hormone during stim? My RE is suggesting a new protocol using human growth hormone based on the recent research article for poor responders.

I am already on DHEA to increase egg quality per RE and Royal Jelly per my own research.

My next stim cycle begins on Jan. 16.

Also does anyone know the cost of human growth hormone for a stim cycle? The RE said he wanted me to stim for 10-12 days this time instead of 8 like I did last time with 5 immature eggs resulting (of the 9 harvested).

Thanks

I have no idea, but this sounds fascinating! I'm glad your doctor is willing to try new things to make this happen for you!

I just posted the same question about 2 days ago. I'm using Saizen but with Flare protocol.

I see this is an old post, how did the HGH work for you guys?

Thanks
