Hi ladies,

 

Just changed clinics after some poor IVF results and new doctor is taking a radically different approach (I like it!) 

 

Has anyone done a protocol with HGH & Testosterone followed by estrogen priming prior to stims? What were your results? 

 

Hope all are doing well.

I didn't take meds but I really focused on big muscle groups at the gym trying to naturally boost HGH and testosterone. 13 eggs retrieved 10 mature 10 fertilized 8 blasts and I supposedly have low AMH/DOR

My wife did HGH/testosterone with estrogen priming antagonist protocol for her 2nd IVF cycle.  Technically didn't result in any better results per se (we got one PGS-normal embryo/cycle regardless of protocol), but FWIW the embryo from this protocol/cycle led to live birth of our DD
