Describe the protocols Gad Lavy used in your cycles at New England Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Prior to the egg retrieval, I was taking Estradiol and Prometrium pills, then Follistim, Ganirelix, and Menopur injections. I produced 31 eggs, and 21 embryos resulted. Due to hyperstimulation, my 12 eligible embryos were frozen, and a transfer was done my next cycle. During this period, I took daily injections of Leuprolide, Estradiol pills, and Progesterone suppositories. A few days prior to my embryo transfer, I discontinued Leuprolide and began every other day with Progesterone injections. One week post transfer, HCG was detected from a blood test. I am awaiting two week blood test for pregnancy results.
