Poor responders are classified as those requiring a higher dose of gonadotropins, have a low ovarian reserve and are over the age of Often these women have cancelled cycles due to lack of response to medication. In these cases, human growth hormone hGH may be indicated to shift the hormonal balance to a more favorable outcome.
Throughout our life the pituitary has the ability to produce the same amount of hGH. However, as we age the pituitary has a more difficult time releasing the hormone. Naturally occurring levels of hGH are highest during adolescence when maximum growth occurs.
As women age, hGH secretion diminishes. Benefits of hGH during in vitro fertilization were originally reported approximately 20 years ago, but its use was never widely used. Eggs naturally produce an analog of human growth hormone known scientifically as IGF This factor promotes cell growth during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle.
This is thought to help with egg maturation and quality, especially in older women. While the exact course of hGH treatment must be prescribed a fertility doctor, generally the subcutaneous injections are taken for about six days during stimulation. Saizen and Omnipure are two brands of hGH prescribed for infertility. Have you used human growth hormone during a cycle?
If so, did it change the outcome of your cycle? Did you collect more eggs than normal, or if you collected the same number of eggs, did more fertilize?
Which doctor prescribed the medication? Saizen or Omnipure, where can I purchase it? IVF and Saizen human growth hormone Anyone use Saizon in IVF? Here are my stats from all the cycles as comparison. It should be noted that I was an excellent responder to the IVF meds, but due to my age, my eggs had high chromosomal error.
The hGH allowed the optimal maturity, fertilization, and embryo growth rates. The last 2 cycles that I used hgh Omnitrope I had a chemical and a blighted ovum.
Also, 6 out of 8 blasts were normal per PGS of all 24 chromosome. The only thing I added was hgh so I have to believe it had a positive effect. My darling boy is now 21 weeks. Beta1 - 96, beta2 - Did you start before cycle or during stimulation only?
And for how long? There are several trains of thought with hGH dosing: No one dosing has shown to be more effective at this time, but it seems more REs are favoring the end of Stims dosing. Because of the cost, most do not do every day throughout Stims. We did a combination of the dosing schedules during Stims to try to maximize response- wanted some at beginning, a little during middle, and heaviest at end of Stims.
I have a very predictable Stim response, so we were fairly certain I would Stim exactly 10 days and based our dosing schedule on that. I apologize, but I don't recall the dosage amount- just that we wanted 3 doses out of each vial for a total of 6.
Our dosing schedule was as follows: There was a smidge left over between combining the vials maybe 0. I have a horrible needle phobia and am very sensitive to injections- the hGH did not burn or sting.
I truly do not think that I would have had the success this cycle without all 3. We threw everything at this cycle- it was our last- before we moved onto donor embryos or straight adoption. Personally know a fellow FT member who used Tev-Tropin Also try Walgreens- ask for Fertility line.
Not sure if this is generic or brand name- I suspect brand name- if you are uncomfortable using generic. Hope this helps- please let me know if you have any additional questions or to post your results!!! Last edited by BC-Chimera; at Backing up a bit the number of mature eggs retrieved went from 4 first 2 retrievals to 11 with HGH.
So in the 2WW period to see how many healthy embryos we have. We'll find out on Sat the 7th! So far we have one frozen which gives us hope that our stuff can work!
After 2 IUIs, one cancelled cycle, and 2 failed cycles, we needed to have something work to keep going, so the one healthy embryo is so re-assuring! My doctor wants to "stockpile," so one more retrieval in January with HGH for sure! Wishing everyone the best of luck! Coping with Pregnancy Loss Country Specific click to expand!
