I always hear that down reg has best success rates etc. I just had chem pg on that protocol and am going to be on flare protocol with 8 amps of Gonal F for next IVF try. Would the fact that flare is used on poor responders explain lower overall success rates?? I had a pretty good cycle except few follicles --- 4 retrieved, 4 fertilised and 4 transferred (grade 2 embies). So, if I get a better follicular response with flare, would I have a better overall chance even though I'm going to be on a protocol that statisically is less successful?? I'm 40, with high E2.

Thanks for you help with all our questions - I always enjoy reading your posts.
