Describe the protocols Benjamin Gocial used in your cycles at Main Line Fertility and their degree of success.
At first we did letrozole, and I was monitored for ovulation, we did timed intercourse. Next, round I also did letrozole with a higher dose and timed intercourse. Followed, letrozole and clomid with timed intercourse. We then did genetric testing which delayed us for a month. Following, we did clomid and letrozole with IUI, the following round i was not as responsive, so we tried injectables and IUI, and then we began the ivF journey. So far, I had 1 egg retrieval with 1 FET. He suggested we do PGT tested frozen embryos. The 1 FET resulted in a 9 week miscarriage. Now, he started me on NOrethindorne for a month prior to doing the next FET.
