Ive done 3 rounds of high stims IVF, resulting in a shut down, with 1 follicle always growing and . Where to now, low stims, or mini's
I come in and out of these boards, as I find I can get obsessive with making the wrong choices by comparing with what others are doing. Or come and go depending on my ups and downs.
turning 44 in 2 months - feeling defeated, but I just cant give up yet.
I think it is more important to test water and try it out for one cycle to see if it works for you. Mini mainly uses Femara/Clomid + injectable boosters, and low-stim is mainly injectables + ganirelix/cetrotide. If you are on the east coast, go to SIRM-NY for EZ-IVF, and New Hope for mini. I believe that RMA also offers low stim and they have a good lab. Some people are great Clomid responders (like myself) but very mediocre injectables responders, and there are people who just cannot tolerate Clomid. You don't know which group you belong to until you try it out yourself.
If you are on the west coast, no choice, go straight to Life for mini, I am not sure if SIRM-LV offers EZ-IVF. If you are in the middle, well, I don't know.
All three of them have very solid labs.
