Just about to start my second IVF cycle. I am 40 with low AMH. My doctor suggested possibly trying growth hormone for the cycle. I would be starting at the same time as starting my stims. I think it would be every other day. Just wondering if anyone has had success with this? I would be taking Saizen....

I've seen that on this site before. Try doing a search for Saizen.

I have no personal experience, so I can't help with that. However, I  know that mesotherapy treatment to ovaries might improve ovarian reserve. Good luck

We tried Saizen with our 3rd cycle. We got 4 decent looking day 3 embryos. We transferred 2 and neither implanted. We grew the others out to blast. One of those made it to a day six blast. That day six blast is napping on my chest. 😀

Thats amazing... congrats! Did you do growth hormone during stims? Do you find it gave you better results than the previous cycles?

Ovarian Rejuvenation (RPR or mesotherapy treatment to ovaries) is an innovative technology that concentrates on restoring the quality of the ovarian reserve. A friend of my sis who has low AMH did it in my clinic and got pregnant via IVF.
