I have a question please. I did long protocol first cycle (took an eternity) and I got 18 eggs but developed OHSS and had to stop treatment. This time I'm doing short protocol on the clinics advice and I'm really scared ill get less eggs. Anyone know if this is likely due to short stims?
So scared as of my 18 eggs I had 16 mature and 13 of which fertilised. Good fertilisation rate but only 3 made it to day 5 (good graded). As I lost so many on my first cycle, I'm scared if I do short protocol I may nowhere near as many eggs and even less to freeze. Anyone done both long and short protocol and had different outcomes with the number of eggs/embryos?
I've read differing opinions whether short protocol produces more eggs. Then others saying quality over quantity. I think my clinic want to do short to omit the risk of OHSS again.
I'm 38 and have naturally high AMH (45.2) with no underlying issues for it like pcos or endometriosis.
