I have DOR. My first IVF cycle we used BCP for three weeks and then microdose flare protocol (Lupron 20 and Follistim 300 am and pm). I produced five eggs, 4F, three 3dt, one frozen on 6th day, none stuck. For my next cycle my RE does not want to use BCP because she thinks that it suppressed me too much. But we are still doing microdose lupron flare. I have heard from a few people that these natural cycles without BCP (or even estrace) are the worst. Eggs can be all over the place with their sizes and some people produced even less. Has anyone had a similar experience? Can you please share your experiences? Should I force my RE to change my protocol? If you used both BCP and estrace, which one worked better for you if you are DOR?
