The flare, or short, protocol is used to "jump start" ovarian response to stimulation in poor responders. Or in women of higher reproductive age, and in women with low ovarian reserve. 

The "long protocol" is the most commonly used IVF protocol in the US, Many IVF specialists think success rates are higher with this protocol (for most patients)
Lupron starts about 7 days before the next expected period - called "mid-luteal" timing
The FSH drug is usually started within the first 2-7 days after the period begins 
The leuprolide acetate dose is often reduced when the FSH product is started
The dose and brand name for the FSH product (e.g. Follistim, Gonal-F, Menopur) varies according to the preferences of the physician and the patient's situation. Most women get a starting dose between 150 and 375 units of FSH product per dayT
he dose is adjusted as the stimulation progresses

antagonist is to suppress the LH surge and ovulation until the follicles are mature.


I am still learning what ever thing means too, I have to Google alot.
Where at in TX, if u don't mind sharing. I am in TX too!

You are welcome. Yeah people would use it during the 2ww. Often people would refer to being pupo during the 2ww after any kind of embryo transfer, fresh or frozen, since you had an embryo transferred.
I guess you could read it (for all IVF, FET and IUI) as "congrats, you made it to your transfer/Insemination! Right now assume that you are pregnant"

Fast forward 2015 seriously consider SIL's offer of gestational surrogate biggrin.png

Start wait for funded cycle 2016

 

Sept 2017 - ER

16 retrieved, 3 day-6 frozen

 

Jan 2018 - FET - BFN

 

Feb 2018 - FET#2 - BFN

 

Going to take a small break - one embie left.

 

So much for a break.

 

Mar - ERA test/mock cycle

 

Fingers crossed for April FET #3 - fingers uncrossed, not happening.

 

ERA complete - waiting for results, results are in! SIL needs an extra 24hrs of progesterone! Hoping this is our answer eusa_dance.gif

 

May 2018 - FET   Wasn't able to move forward due to uncertainty in SIL's AF cry.gif
