During our 1st IVF Cycle back in May I was giving Lupron along with Follestim and Luveris. This cycle I was just informed that instead of Lupron I will be taking Ganirelix shots and continuing with the Follestim and Luveris. Does anyone have any input on Ganirelix or maybe a successful IVF cycle using this instead of Lupron? Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. I'm kind of nervous since I have read Lupron has more success rates then Ganirelix.
I do. My lupron cycle was too bad as i was overly supressed. With ganirelix and BCP, i will lil better and went upto pregnancy. A sad chemical pregnancy is another thing though. but yes, ganirelix seems better. good luck.
My 1st cycle I used lupron and it was a BFN. My second cycle we did an antagonist cycle which used Menapour and the ganirelix was to keep me from O'ing before the Retrieval. I am currently 26 weeks long.
I can tell you I felt better on this cycle. It took me longer to get to the retrieval than my 1st cycle but the outcome is the most important.
