I am just curious how many are/did take Ganirelix instead of Lupron. It seems to be a shorter protocol and I know it acts a bit differently.
Was there a reason your RE put you on Ganirelix instead of Lupron?
I am doing IVF for the first time. I am 36 (37 in November) and I had an antral follicle count of 20 in August. I think I read that they use Ganirelix for poor responders or for older women. I don't think I will be a poor responder from my count but who the heck knows. It is probably my age and I have no clue on how the quality will be. I hope good.
Does anyone know if BCP affects your antral follicle count? I will be pretty upset if my numbers decrease because of the suppression on BCP and I end up with less eggs because of it. I know the antral count is not the all be all but I read that is a good number to gauge what is possible.
