IVF STIMS- WHAT IS YOUR DOSAGE?

Just want to know from those doing IVF right now or recently what your stimulation protocol was? ( Medication and Dosage) and what was the result on your follies please. I really would like to see the normal range of meds to measure my options  . Thanks ! XOXO CIndy

Sorry, Cindy, I didn't include dosage or full results on my other note to you. I started with 25 units of Lupron in the morning while still on BCPs, then when I started the other meds, Lupron was reduced to 5 units. I did 75 units of Menopur and 375 units of Follistim each night.  I had 14 decent follicles (14-18mm) two days prior to retrieval.  11 eggs were retrieved, but only 4 were at the right maturity.  ICSI was done on all 4.  3 fertilized and 2 made it to day 3 with 8 cells and grade A.  Official BFP from doctor 15 days after retrieval.

My IVF in 2008 was Menopur/ Bravelle (2/2) . What i did before was mirco dose to make sure we didn't have OHSS but this will be different RE and I'm not sure really what the norm is right now. I'm also 37 now and not 34 but I stimulate well

I did one in May (BFP this cycle... 5w1d pg)

My FSH was Puregon @ 300 units. My antagonist was Orgalutran. My Trigger was Ovidrel. I am 37 & living in Australia.

My first cycle the dose was 125 units and resulted in two eggs that did not fertilise due to some disinterested sperm...so the dose was increased and the sperm injected for the next two cycles:

1) 11 eggs, 10 injected (ICSI), 8 fertilised, 2 non viable. 3 did not make it to blastocyst. 1 transferred (BFN) 1 frozen (did not defrost successfully), 3 unsuitable for freezing.

2) 9 eggs, 8 injected, 8 fertilised, 3 did not make blastocyst, 1 transferred (BFP!!), 2 frozen, 2 not suitable for freezing.

Good luck to you, hope this helps!

I just finished my first ivf - waiting for betas now.  I was on the long lupron protocol.  I was on 10u lupron and 225U Bravelle in the am and 150u menopur in the evening for 11 days.  I had 27 eggs retrieved and 20 fertilized, 2 transferred and none frozen.  The number of eggs can change according to the protocol but is highly dependent on your ovarian reserve and how you  personally respond to meds.  The exact protocol may or may not work for another person.  Best of luck.,

I was on Gonal F 75u, Menopur 75u, and Lupron 5u. I was dropped down to 37.5 on menopur and Gonal F the 3rd day of usage. I ended up with 18 eggs, 6 embryos, 2 transferred and supposed to find out soon how many made it to freezing stage.

Good luck!
