Fiona2 Oh it IS called an antagonist cycle! I thought I'd misremembered haha. Yes, I did 3 cycles a few years ago but they changed it when I didn't have any success. Now they're changing it back again as I am running out of time, which I'm glad about. Waiting 2 to 3 months between (long down reg) cycles was doing my head in.
@Aimee, Crinone didn't effect me too much, I had night sweats and had to pee urgently a couple of times a night. My best advice is to clean it out every few days. The build up is gross and turns black!!
@blossom1 in an antagonist cycle there is usually no down regging, start stims cd2 then around cd6,7 start ganirelix which prevents early ovulation. Trigger as normal. If I have to cycle again (fresh) id prefer this

I was on the antagonist cycle. It's shorter than others.
I've been on Crinone since Wednesday, can't say I've noticed any effects from it yet
