Hi Hayleigh

have you tried any alternative methods to lower your FSH. Acupuncture, wheatgerm and DHEA (should only be taken under the advisement of a specialist) have all been recommended.

TBH I'm not a great responder to he drugs but always had 100% fertilisation.

What protocol were you on L/P or S/P and what drugs were you taking.

I'm sure there is a thread on FF somewhere dedicated to lowering FSH if you have a search.

Hayleigh - fear not - I was a poor responder on my 1st ICSI with 150 ius of puregon (9 eggs collected, only 3 were mature enough, 2 fertilised BFN) and a good responder on my 2nd ICSI after they upped my stimms to 450 ius (17 eggs collected, 12 mature, all 12 fertilised, BFN). So, although they don't know if my egg quality reduced between my 1st and 2nd, I responded much better to higher stimms. DH too has issues with numbers, motility and abnormalities (they are supposed to have 15-30% normal - his last 5 tests have been 3%, 16%, 10% and 4%) and motility should be 50%+ (his were 75%, 30%, 30% and 58%).

This time round I am staying on 450 ius but DH is going to give 1-2 samples (to be tested then frozen) prior to the day of egg collection to see if they are better than the one at EC. 

Hope this helps x

Hi Loui, Thanx for replying, i was on merional (hope i spelt it right) they started me on 300vials then increased to 375, the 1st ICSI both ovaries responded 2nd time my left ovarie didn't respond until 2 days b4 EC, the one good thing is that the quality of my eggs are very good!! thanx for advise :) :)

Hi sam, Thanx for your advise also, on my 1st ICSI i was on the L/P 2nd ICSI S/P with flair but to be honest 2nd att was more disappointing thought i might have got more eggs!! not quite sure but next att they want to put me on clomid as well?? i have'nt been back for follow up appointment YET! No i have'nt thought about the accupunture but definately worth looking into thanx again xxxxxxx
