Starting IVF.... advice from veterans (possible MENTS)

I am gearing up to start IVF in June. Could use a little help and guidance...

Some background (possible MENTS):

I am 35 and have been TTC #2 for approx. 1 year. Had fairly easy time conceiving #1 (who is 2.5), but did have some testing done and all was ok (AMH was in the 2's I believe). After having testing done for #2 more recently at new RE here were my #'s:

AMH: 1.52
FSH: 8.6
AFC: has always been between 12-20

After my first failed Clomid/IUI cycle, my FSH jumped to 15 (this was about 3 weeks after taking Clomid). Has anyone else had this happen? Since then it's been 10 and below. My doc said it was encouraging that I had a good response to Clomid (though did not work) and he didn't necessarily feel my reserve was that low, also based on AMH and AFC. That being said, I am still very concerned about that high FSH.

Has anyone had any experience with a moderately high FSH with all other numbers within normal range? I can't seem to find much information on this situation- it seems that it is less common.

I am currently on short course of BCP (last month did 13 days and they didn't suppress me, plus had a E2 producing cyst). My baseline a few days ago was E2- 38, FSH- 10, AFC- 12 (my lowest to date). Then starting 150 iu Menopur and 225 iu Gonal-F and will then use Ganirelix. Does this sound like a typical protocol?
