I was just wondering what med protocal everyone was on, and if they had success with it?
i will start
Cycle 1: Lupron, Gonal F, Hcg Trigger, crinone gel = BFN
cycle 2: Same but switched to prometrium = BFP but m/c at 7w
Cycle 3 (just started) Lupron, GonalF and Menapur, HCG trigger, then prometrium and Heparin
Results 1 to 3 of 3

I am gearing up for my 3rd attempt - trying to figure out what to do for #3
IUI - gonal f 150 x 2 nites- dropped to 75 for 4 nites, 5 follicles = BFP, mc at 6wks
IVF #1 - Antagon Protocol - Gonal f 300 - stimmed for 7 nites, 8 eggs, 4 embies of great quality, bfn
IVF # 2 - canceled, converted to IUI - 300 gonal f + 150 Menopur for 7 days, only 2 follicles
My RE wants to do the same antagon protocol again for attempt #3 - thinks I just had a bad month for ivf #2. RE doesnt think menopur is the culprit...
I want to trust my RE and go with the flow (he is one of the top RE in the country at one of the best clinics in NY) but I am really hessitant about doing the same thing again!
Has anyone had drastically different responses from one cycle to the next with the same protocol?

heather - I like the protocol that you are on for this third cycle..it is the one I used and worked for me in regards to embryo qualitiy and having 5d blasts.
One thing I would change...especially given that you had a m/c in the past....see if you could switch from prometrium to PIO (1cc per day).
Other than that - I really hope that this makes a differenence fo you and you get your BFP
