Describe the protocols Lawrence Werlin used in your cycles at Coastal Fertility Medical Center and their degree of success.
I called Dr Werlin on Day 1 of my cycle to set up an ultrasound on Day 2. After the ultrasound I was put on a BCP for 5 days. On Day 14 I stopped the BCP and started injectables: Lupron, Choriomon, Menopur & Gonal F. I cannot remember specifics but injectables were taken until Day 22. My injectable treatment was extended because my follicles were not growing as quickly as Dr. Werlin wanted them too. By Day 22 I was at 20cm and was instructed to inject the HCG medication. My retrieval was scheduled for Day 24 but after my ultrasound & bloodwork results came back on Day 23 the Dr decided to change my retrieval to an IUI because I only had 3 potential eggs. Very sad day it was. I had an IUI on Day 24 and Day 25 and was put on Progesterone. Unfortunately I started my period 10 days after my second IUI.
