    Mrshol I think it depends on you huni. I had gonalf which was really easy to use during my first cycle and I got lots of eggs as I overstimulated on it but quality wasn't great. I used menopur this time and got half the eggs but a better quality ball embies went to blast and I currently have two on board and there were some for the freezer as well

    Hi!

    I had Gonal F for two fresh cycles on the NHS and had a really good response.

    I had Menopur on my last fresh cycle privately and had the best result - although had poorer fertilisation this time round.

    Think as said above by other ladies it just depends on you and would be totally guided by your consultants.

    Good luck

    Good question! I really wish I knew the answer too. On my ivf cycle I had just menapur (4vials) only per day. I have low amh (5.4 1 year ago) and produced 6 eggs. At 39 years young. 

    Clara - I think you at the same clinic as me with similar age and profile but yet you got a different mix of drugs!

    I really don't understand how they decide these things. ^idiot^

    I had a better response with a mix of Gonal F and Menopur too. :)

    thanks girls, wish they actually had some proper info to know which was one best or a mix. being a poor responder i want the best ones for me

    i had gonal f last time when my cycle was cancelled however i was started on a low dose of 50, then went up to 100 then 150 but still no response- follicles but no eggs/low E2 levels

    however wonder if that was just because dose was to low for me and if they started me on 300iu i would get a better responds!!

    thanks for ur comments, so its just wait and see hey!! xxxx  ^pray^
