We did IVF due to MFI - all numbers for me were good. My first 2 retrievals had good numbers - I think 13 and 15. Ended up with a mc from the second. Never had anything to freeze, but a lot of that had to do with quality factors from MFI, as well as a clinic that didn't have a great lab and didn't do PGS. Stims were antagonist protocol. (gonal + luveris)

I switched REs, and he switched me to Menopur, but still antagonist protocol. My retrieval numbers went way down. We were batching for PGS, and suddenly started getting only 6 or 7 eggs at retrieval. We did FOUR batching cycles, ended up with only one PGS normal out of 8 or so blasts, and transfer failed. The RE was recommending donor eggs, and I was convinced the protocol changes with the increased LH were the issue. There were also some doubts I had about their PGS testing, because he convinced me we needed to test on Day 3, for a transfer on day 5, since we never had day 5's frozen before.

So, new RE. He put me on microdose lupron flare protocol, and retrieval numbers jumped back up. I've done two cycles with him - one with 12 retrieved and one with 18. We have 3 PGS normals from those two cycles with him, testing was done on day 5. (I think we had either 7 or 8 blasts tested). So it's a major improvement, and in 2 cycles we achieved three times what we had from the previous 4 cycles.

My current RE said ovarian response can be cyclical and it's possible that for RE #2 they were just in a down cycle. In particular, my left ovary was not responding at all and RE #2 said it was done. My last retrieval I had 10 follicles in the left, so he was totally wrong there.

Current RE also said the flare protocol can be very helpful for low response, and it was for me.

We also did HGH - though I've basically taken that from cycle 5 onwards. So it's hard to know if it helps, but it doesn't hurt.

I also took acai based on this study. I used this one from amazon. I used it a few weeks before and then during stims. Also CoQ10.

I would get a second opinion in your shoes. I really don't think IVF#2 should be your last shot with your own eggs. If I had listened to my second RE, I would probably be on donor eggs and sperm, when in reality we have 3 perfectly normal embryos frozen now. Having only 2 embryos to test is just a crapshoot - you can't say all embryos will be bad based on just 2. And the first IVF is always a guessing game in terms of protocol, etc. And I think the flare protocol is a good move, possibly with adding in HGH.

Also, get your husband on some supplements and clean up his living. Sperm quality has got to play a factor too, and it won't hurt either way. Plus, it's no fair if you have to do everything :)

My clinic is doing a trial that has women take 1 tablespoon day and night of Acai concentrate for egg health/quality improvement. Specifically the NOW brand: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0033T89EO/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I didn't qualify to be a part of the actual trial (you had to have already completed one IVF cycle with no live children, and I think something about age), but my RE said there was no harm in me still taking it even if my results weren't being tracked. Also it's pretty tasty.

I have nothing to compare it to because I started taking it before my first IVF, but hey, I don't think it hurt anything (I only got 5 eggs but all 5 made it to blast), so why not?
