My first IVF cycle yielded 19 eggs but well over half were immature, so there was only one embryo left for transfer. For the 2nd cycle, the doctor recommended a high responder protocol: bcp's for about 4 weeks, overlapped for one week with Lupron (20IU's). Well, this cycle yielded the same number of eggs, but even less were mature. I also stimmed just as fast in the 2nd cycle as I did in the first -- retrieval was only 9 days after began stims.
My question is: are there more aggressive high resonder protocols than the one I was on? Also, is this problem related to my age, and is there any benefit to waiting a year or two until my ovaries are less hyper-active?
