They were peer-reviewed articles. I've discussed it with Wazza numerous times and am usually on 450-600 FSH. I am a bit of a go hard or go home kinda girl though.

Summer if anyone will be able to get 44yo eggs to work it will be you since your great response with natural cycles. fwiw my gonal-f ranged from 375, 300, 350 with 350 as my last cycle bfp/cp and 375 for cycles 1-3 (frostie). I wonder how I would have gone then at higher dose. what doses have you used previously? maybe the older eggs 43+ respond to higher doses (though I'm sure each person is different)
    Thanks guys! The reason I was looking at doing a lower dose cycle was because I did four cycles of 600 (split doses) with Wazza and didn't get more than one follie ever. It was a go hard or go home effort - he had me on absolutely everything but with my thyroid issues something (not sure exactly what) interfered with my thyroid function and I got really, really sick.

    So I kind of had in the back of my mind that maybe I was never going to produce good follies because I was so sick, so if I do a lower dose cycle without the whole kitchen sink, I might not get so sick and therefore *might* have a chance of getting a better result. Thought it was worth a try as anecdotally many people do say that they got better results with a lower dose. Long shot, but I would like to find out what happens

    I was always on low doses (150 to 170) and responded well but I have polycystic ovaries. Shame about the quality.

    Anyone have their own preferences of using one over the other??
    I prefered endomitrin x 3 as it definitely kept my period at bay and they are a lot less messy.

    @Summer would you cound 375 as a low dose? might be worth a shot
    @Charlie74, I think endometrin seems slightly less messy than crinone but still wear a liner for both as there is leakage

    Feeling sore and sorry for myself.

    I've got to get stitches out Monday and have a blood test to make sure numbers are going down. They were 3000 on Tuesday. So I'm going to make an appointment to see my FS. Not sure how long he will get me to wait.

    I've got three lovely frozen DE embies on ice. So I'm going to get straight back on this horse.... Just need the body to be ready to handle it all

    @Charlie74 definitely endometrin - crinone is the worst! and it doesnt stop AF for me either. In fact the pessaries are the only thing that does. From memory I don't think they are messy, although maybe slight leakage but nothing gruesome like the ole crinone.

    @Summer I reckon giving the lower dose a shot is a great idea, at worst you'll get your one egg and it may just be all you need, especially of the quality is better. Isn't there also some evidence to suggest that why the natural FET stats have risen so much to be pretty much on par with fresh is because theres less drugs in your system so its closer to a natural pregnancy environment. It makes sense. Ive read that older women (over 40) respond well to the lower dose cycles..just not me!

    just make sure your head is also ready @Precious40. My ectopic really messed me up for quite a while, so take your time to heal everywhere. I got some counselling too after mine, not straight after but a few months later as i wasn't coping very well. Take care of your self

    That is definitely lower than I was on - I think my FS was looking at about 250 but if that does nothing, then I would see if I can squeeze in another cycle at about the 375, but then I'd be done, so that would be my two goes.

    Thanks @tuxcat I thought it was worth a go now that I've been drug free for many months and my health is pretty good. My cycles were perfect until I had the little Bell's Palsy blip and took some high dose pred for a few days - other than that I'm feeling better than I have for years so it's now or never!
