long cycles

kristin - May 25

I have had 3 failed IVF cycles due to poor embryo quality. I stimmed with repronex everytime, and suppressed with Lupron. I have long menstral cycles (approx 40 days). Is it possible that I have a hormone imbalance resulting in elevated androgen levels, and in which case the LH in repronex is further compromising egg quality? Thanks!

The vast majority of IVF programs use some LH in their stimulation protocols. I do not. We feel we get better quality eggs and embryos if we use straight FSH for our stimulations.
Good luck.
