Ladies, how long did you stim before trigger?

Postby Unique » Sun Aug 30, 2009 10:28 am

If you had an IVF cycle that resulted in retrieval, please share how long you were stimulated prior to taking the HCG trigger shot. Also, if you can, please add what drug/protocol you were using.

TIA :D

I did an antagonist protocol. BCPs for 14 days, 300 gonal F and 150 repronex for 10 days in addition to ganarelix for the last 4 of the 10 days. At retrieval I got 15 eggs, 12 mature and 9 fertilized naturally. We transferred the 2 best embies. None of the others made it to freeze.
