I realize everyone is different but the RE is suggesting we try the Long Lupron protocol for this next cycle. I feel like we are going back to square one. I am AMA but a decent responder. I haven't met with him to hear what he has to say but I just feel like this is the protocol most RE's use first - not on a 4th IVF. To be honest with you, I am not even sure I will go back to my RE (RMA in NY). They are a drive through IVF clinic and it drives me crazy. DH says he thinks they are fine and we will be successful using RMA but my attitude is I think they are just guessing (hence the lets try Long Lupron) instead of really trying to find what is best for me. The past two cycle we used Lupron but it was a few days after BCP.
What do you ladies think about using a Long Lupron protocol at this stage in the game? I think I need to get my butt out of RMA - they are not very good with AMA patients.
