Round one I started off light with menopur, follistim, and clomid to see my reaction to new drugs. My doses were upped quite a bit to of menopur and follistim because my E2s weren't rising.

What specific things went wrong at Reproductive Partners Fertility Center?
- Provided conflicting information
- Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Reproductive Partners Fertility Center.
I was on a plan to egg freeze ( aware of the risks) but was strongly re-recommended to cancel 2 days and defer to make embryos after starting stim by the clinic due to low odds with my age, not due to response to drugs. Their advice was good but this was very stressful and would have been better communicated before the entire cycle.
I ended up retrieving and making embryos and have 2 PGS normals.
