Describe the protocols Matthew Peterson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
Ever since the beginning, we have yet to find a "problem" with me or my husband. Not for a lake of testing
Given the fact that we are both healthy, with what we can foresee, no issues... Dr. Petterson started me on a birth control, to regulate my cycle. Once it came time I started Gonal-F and menopur. We chose to do a frozen cycle, once time came to implant our frozen embryo, we then began progesterone shots. Dr. Peterson chose a normal dose and schedule for what my "case" was. His approach is, not to throw anything and everything, with hopes of a positive result. He, along with the board of Dr's in the clinic, study my case and decide what route is best.
