Human growth hormone & what to expectGrowth Hormone is a protein that human growth hormone protocol for ivf body normally what are t levels. Growth Hormone can act on several different organs, including the ovaries, where eggs are made. From evidence gathered from studies done by fertility doctors over the years, researchers believe that women who have not become pregnant through IVF in the past might have better results if they go on a course of Growth Hormone during the IVF treatment. However, more research needs to be done to confirm whether adding Growth Hormone is beneficial and also to find out the best time to start Growth Hormone treatment during IVF. We hope that our Adjuvant Growth Hormone study will help answer these questions.

My first cycle long protocol I was cancelled on day 6 as all my follicles stopped growing. The next cycle was micro-flare using Suprefact 0. I triggered on day 7, retrieved day 9. This time I seem to be responding much more normally. My Dr recommended 5IU Saizen once a day at bedtime, starting on the first day of stimulation. I started it the day of my baseline check, same day I started using suprefact to suppress. Then started stimulation 2 days later.
All my other meds are exactly the same. That has greatly improved my uterine blood flow. Today at my day 6 check my estrogen level is much more normal at very slightly low and i have 5 follicles over 10mm My next check is on day 8. It looks like I may make it to day 9 or even 10 to trigger. That would be awesome!!. The only issue with the Sizen is that it is an "off label" use so it isn't covered by blue cross insurance.
Not sure what other plans will cover. Another lady on here posted this link to a good artivle on it. It certainly gave me more confidence. If you have any other questions feel free to pm me.

I am apprehensive about it and need reassurance but only if it's warranted. I'm a realist after all. I am on my second ivf cycle this month and the doctor added saizen Is that the one prescribed to you? I am starting one shot one week prior to stems and then I have to take a few during stimulation. I was given this because I my low amh hoping to produce more and better quality eggs. I know that it I still relatively new an it seems a little experimental but m willing to try anything.
If u give me ur email via private message I can forward to you some papers the doctor sent me on this. Estimated ER 4 fertilized Nov 11th: That would be awesome!! I so appreciate the responses! I think my problem is egg quality. I had 16 eggs retrieved at both of my other cycles but I stimmed at max doses for 13 days which is a long time apparently. I did get pregnant that cycle but it ended in tragedy early in the second trimester.
The doc danced around it every which way she could but didnt put a label on me. I have egg quality - embryo quality issues. I got pregnant and I'm almost 14 weeks pregnant I was suppose to do a total of 6 doses, but I ended up triggering 1 day earlier, so I did 5 doses I think it's worth the try I'm glad I did it too. I read up lots on it beforehand and the studies and it didn't seem like there were long term or bad side effects, so I was comfortable trying it.

Nice to hear your experience with saizen. I am trying to lift myself out of my occasional doom-n-gloom mentality and focus on being more positive!
Your story definitely helps! Male Factor My Clinic: It will be our last cycle so i hope it works for us. I'm a poor responder and my eggs were also of poor quality. I start Suprefact on Tuesday and stims with Saizen on Thursday. Moving on to international adoption.
I'll be a bit behind you with my cycle, likely not stimming until early November. Good luck with your cycle! Here's hoping saizen is the key on your quest to parenthood!
I just did the exact same protocol as you with Conceptia. I hope your cycle goes well too. Costco were pretty good with the meds. Fingers crossed these are your future! Especially in Western Canada. Can't comment about clinics out west though Best of luck in your quest to conceive! I am on saizen right now. Not sure about west. I hope you don't mind me joining this thread.
I'm new to this site but not new to IVF. I'm currently in the 2ww 3dp2dt this is my 2nd ivf cycle. I guess I would be considered a poor responder, last time we got 8 embies, this time only 4 and only 2 fertilized. One month prior to stims we did E2 priming with estrace, progesterone and Androgel. Then during stims I was taking iu menopur, iu Gonal F, 0. Then Saizen ended and orgalutran began. So after all this I only got 4 embies.
Most of the follies were empty. Anyway, I have 2 embabies and am resting, eating pineapple galore and keeping everything crossed!! Can u tell me the details about the saizen?
