Few things to know about our case--

We are in DOR, so we are attempting a high dose Antagonist protocol for our first to see how I respond to high doses. We are considering me a poor responder based solely on AMH.

300 Follistim
300 Menopur
Ganirelix beginning on first lead follicle at 14

Suppressing only with Estinyl Estrodial (Desogen Birth Control), no Lupron suppression. Am on BC now and we will decide when to start stimming. I'll stay on active pills from now until whenever we are ready to start stimming. I'll quit the active pills, and start stimming 2-3 days later.

Any feedback or thoughts or freakouts?

I had to look back through my notes on my cycles. The last IVF cycle where I responded the best, I took bcp only for supression. Then I was on 300 follistim, 150 menopur (a 2:1 ratio), and I started ganirellix when the lead follicle was 14.

Any ideas how long you will take bcp? I will be routing for you!!!!!!

First cycle -

On BCP
Then 20 IU of Lupron
Stopped BCP and continued Lupron
Stimmed for 11 (I think?) days on 75IU of Gonal F and 75IU of Menopur (Lupron was reduced to either 5 or 10 IU).

I believe it'll be the same for the cycle we're doing in July too.

Our only diagnosis is severe male factor.

I knew we'd be on a high dose, but can you imagine taking 600 IU of meds compared to 150! I better grow some dadgum eggs!!!

I did 10 of Lupron for 17 days

Then I think 75 of Bravelle and 300 Menopur for 10 days.

I was on Lupron while stimming.

Then after, I was on Progesterone in Ethyl Olete and Endometrin till I was 10 weeks. (I stopped endometrin at about 8 weeks though)
