I just completed my 3rd ivf cycle. (My FSH one year ago was 11) My first long lupron was converted to an IUI due to poor response. My second cycle was an estrogen priming in which I had 14 eggs, 9 fertilized and 5 were good enough to transfer or freeze. My most recent cycle, also an estrogen priming, only had 5 eggs and none of them fertilized. I am on very high doses of gonal F (450) but my protocols were identical and yet responses SO different. My doctor has no explanation other than poor quality eggs. ( I am 34). Has anyone else had a similar experience? I just started accupuncture but I am wondering if there are other ways to improve egg quality?
