Dear Late bloomer:
If your day 3 FSH values are normal, (every lab has a slightly different range of normal), it is reasonable to attempt a more agressive stimulation protocol. If you still do not respond, it is unlikely that you will be able to conceive with your own eggs and you can make the big decision to move on to DE knowing that you exhausted the options with your own eggs.

: I am 43, have been pg 2x prior (latest was m/c last year).. No live births yet! Following the m/c went to RE. Had only 1 attempt at IVF on 4amps GonalF.. very poor response - 2 follies so cancelled.

: I would like to believe that I do have a chance to conceive with my own eggs.. what are the chances that applying another protocol would have more effect on my ovaries?

: My FSH tested 2x: 11/E2:71; 9.3/E2:46 a few mo. ago.

: Have switched RE's and will attempt 1 more IVF/IUI possibly. Then, would DEFINITELY consider DE if effort at IVF w.own eggs fail.

: Do you think that this is reasonable? The protocol recommended for next IVF: no lupron, 4ampsGonalF.

: Making the decision for DE is a HUGE one and I hope never to regret not having tried with my own if I move to that option.

: Thanks so much for your comments
