Quick Stimulation?

MissyT - July 1

I want to thank you for the invaluable resource you provide here. This is such a stressful time for us all and you are very appreciated for your time.

I have a question about over quick stimulation. I just finished my first IVF cycle. Unfortunately it was a failure. We have a male factor issue so we used ICSI and had AH and 2 3 day embryo's transferred they were of good quality. What happened is I only stimmed for 7 days. I have a BMI over 40 so my RE put me on 300iu Follistim and 300iu repronex daily due to my weight. On day 5 i had 5 follicles that were were 15mm and about 8 that were under 10 and an E2 of 576 on day 5. Of the 5 that were retreived only 3 were mature and only 2 fertilized 1 of those fertilized a day late. My question is was it the high dose of stimming drugs that made my 5 follicles so large so fast. And did the short time of stimming not allow for my other eggs to mature? I have a follow up with my RE and I am trying to go in informed. The first one was a whirlwind I had no idea what this was all about and I want to try and have some sort of control this time around. As many I pay totally out of pocket and only have one more shot.

If you had a patient who has a similiar response as I did what you recommend for meds the second time around to allow for more follicles to have time to grow. I am 37(in a few days) and my FSH is in the high 7's low 8.

Thank you again for your time.
