So I’ve now 6 days into injections, and on catching up on my Zita West bible, discovered that there’s infact two different IVF protocols - long and short. As it dawned on me that I didnt seem to be doing any of the down regging and went straight to stims, I’ve been put in the short. I obviously googled (dangerous!) and it said that this option was given to either older women, or those the did not feel would response well- something no one has suggested to me today ( I’ve just turned 34 this month and apparently pretty average across most things, so not particularly problematic for meds).
I asked the doctor at my first scan yesterday, and she said that everyone being treatment there is put on a short protocol is poss, as they prefer it/ feel it’s working best at that trust.
My question for you lovely peeps is if anyone has had any success with short protocol? And if they have any idea if there’s a general egg number aim (I’ve read that it can be lower but the aim is for better quality...? It’s all a bit vague!)
Thanks lovelies! And enjoy that royal wedding! Ha! 😆 xxx
