Dr. Jacob - My husband and I are both 36 and in the last 3 yrs (diff partners) have done 3 IVFs (1 transfer). I've also done 3 iui with no success. The last time I checked my FSH, it was 5.4 and LH was normal. I've done every major IVF protocol:
1. long lupron protocol - 6 eggs all badly fragmented, 3 made it to transfer
2. stop lupron protocol - 5 eggs all badly fragmented, none made it to transfer (2 had M chromosomes)
3. mircodose flare protocaol - worst cycle, ended up with 5 follicles from 9-22mm, retrieved 3 eggs and none fertilized
I had the best response in terms of follicle development with FSH only which I did with iui but didn't result in pregnancy. I'm thinking I should do FSH only again but this time with IVF. What do you think? I have only one shot left with insurance for IVF. Do you have any other protocol you think might help?
