I'm contemplating seeking a second opinion but DH thinks we should try one more cycle at my current REs.
Some background, first IVF was an IUI to IVF conversion (antagonist protocol) and of the 7 embryos we had, only 1 made it it transfer and it was a BFN.
The second IVF we tried antagonist again and though I had 23 follicles, my E2 level after 10 days of stims was only ~800 so I voluntarily cancelled that cycle rather than have a disappointing ER and ET.
We just tested my AMH and my level was 1.2 however at 31 years old this is quite low considering my age.
RE wants to proceed with a long-lupron protocol for the next IVF; he thinks due to my past 2 performances that I may have an egg quality issue and we should change up the protocol. Even though my practice has about 10 docs and they all reviewed my case at their weekly meeting, I can't help but think maybe I should seek a fresh pair of eyes. Cornell has a satellite office by my work so I'm thinking of pursuing them for a consult.
Would love to hear others opinions and experiences on this, especially those that have not been successful with IVF#1. Just kinda feeeling bummed recently...thanks for reading, enjoy the cupcake
