    Exclamation IVF#16 - Confused and need advice!!!

    Straight to the facts:
    • Age: 32
    • AMH: 0.20
    • AFC: 3
    • FSH: 30+
    • Number of IVF cycles: 16
    • Only get 1 egg/follicle per cycle

    We've tried doing the standard protocols Gonal F or Menopur 150iu with Progynova daily for the past 10 cycles without much success - we only get 1 follicle per cycle and it either ends up being empty / non-responder (9) or not fertilizing (1).


    Last cycle IVF#16, I made a suggestion on hybrid natural cycle, in which we don't stim menopur 150iu until the 6th day - this ended up being the best cycle yet with a FET that occurred however failed to implant.


    Now onto IVF#17, we've been told that they want us to do Gonal F 150iu with Progynova daily again starting from day 2 as we did the past 10 other times.


    I had assumed logic would be that we do what we do last time rather than the same thing as previously done, however was told that I was peri-menopausal and it doesn't matter.


    Am I going insane with doing the same methodology or are they?


    I figured, if I'm only getting one follicle/egg per cycle, less stims would be better?
    Please help and tell me if I'm wrong!

    Hi, I can't offer much advice but wouldn't low AMH mean you need a much higher dosage? I will be in 300 gonal F next cycle and my AMH is normal.

    I am 37 and have had multiple failed cycles - this one we want more eggs so doc said he is increasing the dosage (we were doing 150-200 before).

    I would def be asking the question.

    I would be getting a second opinion elsewhere. Not saying what they’re doing is wrong, but you’ve been at it a while now.

    I agree, if I were you I'd get a 2nd opinion. I've been stimmed as high as 450 of Menopur or Gonal-F (to get 5-10 eggs)
