Human Growth Hormone

That’s what I’m going to try for my last hurrah.  I can’t help but feel a little bit excited.  I just started a new cycle – things weren’t in place on time so I will wait this one out .  Three weeks to go!!

Improvement of delivery and live birth rates after ICSI in women aged >40 years by ovarian co-stimulation with growth hormone — Tesarik et al. 20 (9): 2536 — Human Reproduction

I am also going to talk about using Dexamethosone as well but I don’t like my chances:

Low-dose dexamethasone augments the ovarian response to exogenous gonadotrophins leading to a reduction in cycle cancellation rate in a standard IVF programme — Keay et al. 16 (9): 1861 — Human Reproduction

I will let you know whether it will be IVF or a stim cycle when I know 🙂
