I recently had two frozen embryo transfers fail. These two were my last two from a cycle I did back in 2016, and now I am thinking about doing another fresh cycle. What do you think my chances are? I am 36 and have stage 4 endo. To prepare for my cycle back in 2016, I had to go on Lupron for six months. I don't really want to have to take it again because I don't want to wait because of my age, but they told me at my clinic it is the only thing that will improve my changes, given the severity of my endo. Has anyone had success with IVF without having been on Lupron before their cyle? What other proto

There are reasons to consider lupron before IVF, especially if the ovaries are deep and difficult to access for an egg retrieval. Another reason would be to try to shrink endometriomas if you have them. Alternative to lupron would be to have surgery or to take Visanne.
