Thoughts on My First Protocol

Hi ladies,

I'd greatly appreciate any experiences/input/thoughts regarding the protocol for my first attempt at IVF. I am 36 years, 10 months old. I started with Cetrotide after ovulation was confirmed 2 weeks ago and have been wearing Vivelle patches for the past couple weeks (EPP). My ultrasound yesterday indicated 3-4 follicles on each side. They did not check my FSH.

I began Lupron today (10 units) and will add in Follistim (450) and Menopur (150) on Wednesday. This will continue at least until Saturday when I go in for another ultrasound and bloodwork. Is this considered high stim? Makes me a bit nervous since I keep reading that low stims seem better for people with DOR.

Thanks so much! happy.gif
