So I know a few ladies here wanted updates, and I also wanted to put out there how my protocol affected my cycle. I did antagonist, high stims, 300 menopur/300 Follistim, starting Ganirelix when main follicle got to around 14mm. I am with Dr Gill in Houston at HFI, and believe strongly that he had the right protocol for my entire cycle, working with my FSH, and his approach to monitoring.
Around 6 weeks of low does Estinyl BCP's as well. I started with around 6-7 antrals on the CD 3 baseline sono. Got to around 8 that we saw steadily every other day, and those were rising normally, although a tad slowly. My estrodiol was a slow responder, but not a bad responder. We ended up doing 12 total days of stims, but we now have 11-12 follicles total, although I believe only around 10 will be mature
LH tonight was .4, P4 was .8, and Estrodiol topped out at 1718, and for me this is a good number, about the highest I think we'll get. The Ganirelix never really made me stall out too much on estrodiol either.
So we trigger tonight, retrieve Thurs Morn in Houston
This sounds awesome Lauren

You are responding beautifully to your first IVF. We will be cheering you on. Glad the LH issue is resolved.

They may get more eggs than follicles--I was showing 9 follicles and they retrieved 11 eggs. Some were hiding in the back.
Sounds perfect--keep us posted!

I had a similar cycle my last IVF... 11 good looking follies at ER and they ended up getting 15 that were mature! Congrats! Hope this is THE cycle!!
