Hi Susie,

I did a cycle in April with estrogen priming (patches) and ganirilex.

i would think they will be using the ganirelix to keep you from ovulating and maturing the eggs longer.. with the extra dosage of estrogen you levels will be higher and can cause early ovulation.

That's the exact protocol I'm on now. I've heard it improves the number of eggs and quality. It didn't improve my number too much (11 this time v. 9 last time), and I'll find out about quality tomorrow. Last time, only 2 fertilized and they weren't great. Good luck!
