Describe the protocols Barbara Stegmann used in your cycles at Aspire Fertility and their degree of success.
Antagonist Protocol: Follistim, Ganirelix, Menopur. I started to over stimulate and we started out with a lower dose and then gradually increased dosage. She went this route thinking I wouldn't need much due to my age.
