Due to advanced maternal age, I have DOR. In our first IVF we did the estrogen priming antagonist protocol. I ended up growing three follicles and had two eggs. We came out with one beautiful blastocyst, but unfortunately it was chromosomally abnormal.
For our next, and last, IVF, I will be doing the microflare protocol. The month before I will be doing OCP/cetrotide. When does the OCP/cetrotide start, and for how long is it taken? Also what are the doses of cetrotide when it is used in priming protocol? I am concerned that the OCP will over-suppress. What is the thought behind this pre-treatment? Does the cetrotide balance out the suppressive effects of OCP?
