They said that it is so the body doesn't reject the embryo ? I haven't been at that stage of having an embryo transfer before so think they ar...

Anyone had poor response to drugs & produced to few eggs

Hi I wonder if anyone has had a poor response to drugs and not produced the required number of eggs for IVF? I felt awful on the down reg drug and felt my body never really picked up after it. I produced 2 eggs and ended up having IUI which was negative. So I kind of did an IUI on IVF drug protocol....

Quick buserelin down regulation

Buserelin - down regulation. Has anyone on this site completed down regulation on buserelin before the 14 days? I seem to have reacted quickly to drug and they want to blood test and scan before the 14 days (on day 10) :o
