    Hi JustJaq. I went on to use the testogel in another cycle. Unfortunately, I don't recall it making any difference to the response I had to the FSH, and my dominant follicle problem. I wish I had some more positive feedback for you. I should add though that my problem is age and at 43 (nearly 44) maybe nothing could help me. Good luck!

    Thanks for your reply, @Golden Egg. Sorry to hear it didn't help you. I'm 38 with low ovarian reserve - fingers crossed! Wishing you all the best.

    Hello @pingc383.

    I am on DHEA and melatonin. I'm 38, with low reserve. Just had a cancelled cycle after having just one dominant follicle.

    My FS has suggested jabbing with Cetrotide for a few days before my period starts in the hope that this will suppress the body selecting a dominant follicle before the cycle starts and more follicles will be recruited. Fingers crossed.

    I have read things in the past about DHEA making a real difference for people. Hopefully it does for you too!

    Hi @pingc383

    I'm still relatively new to IVF (took 2 cycles to have my DS, and now on first cycle back to try for number 2), I and don't fully understand all the science and the meds..

    I have been on 300 Gonal F and 150 Menopur daily - I thought 450 was the maximum? You said you were on 600?

    And my FS said to continue DHEA until pick up... but your FS stopped yours on Day 1... I wonder why the different recommendations?

    And saizen is the growth hormone, isn't it? Has your FS explained how it's meant to work, etc?

    How did your FS know that of the 7 follicles, there were only likely to be 2 eggs?

    I am currently jabbing with Cetrotide a few days before my expected Day 1 in the hope my body won't pre-select a dominant follicle...

    Good luck to you!
