My RE is recommending that we use human growth hormone (hgh)(brand name Saizen) on our next IVF cycle.
I've done some reseach and it seems like primarily this is used in women over 40 to help with egg quality-I'm 31.
Also, this is going to add around $1500 on to our meds....thoughts? I know I need to do some more research but I thought I would ask here first.
Has anyone else used this?
