Hiya one and all, hope you're all coping well with the craziness that is tcc?
I have what I feel is a bit of a stupid question that I hope someone can answer even though our fertility nurse kinda already explained it I'm afraid I'm still a little uncertain...
So, I'm 33, have low ovarian reserve and 1 blocked tube. I have a pretty regular 26-28 day cycle.
During our round 1 and 2 of ivf our doctor put us on a short then an antagonist protocol (which seemed the same to me?). I responded well the first time but poorly the second time.
I will be starting my 3rd round in 21 days but on a long protocol with 2 weeks of burserin prior to a higher dose of stims. My question is, what difference/improvement does down regging make and how does shutting off the hormones/putting us into a menopause like state help?
Thank you for your patience with my silliness, just can't seem to get my head around something new right now it seems!
Big luck, love and best wishes to mamas papas and babies to be. Xxx
