Micro dose Lupron Protocol????
Fri, 04-13-2012 - 10:39pm

hey everyone. because i rsponded so poorly to the long lupron protocol (e2 was only 29 on day 4 of stims), my doc cancelled my cycle and changed my protocol to Micro Dose Lupron. i know that it means that the lupron will be diluted. but is there anything else different with this protocol? like in terms of the calendat? will stims be longer, shorter, or the same? i tried googling it, but failed to get a clear answer. if anyone has been on this protocol, will you please describe it for me please? thx bunches!!

I did a micro flare protocol. Stims should be about the same length. Using less Lupron will supress you less. Your doc may also use higher doses of stims. I was on 225iu of Menopur and 225iu of Bravelle daily. Here's a site I like that has some info on it - http://www.advancedfertility.com/ivf-low-response.htm.

Good luck!!!
