One of the
common questions patients ask us is What treatment protocol are you going to
use for our IVF cycle ?
There are lots
of super ovulation protocols available , and many clinics are very rigid and
will use only one protocol for all their patients. They follow a mindless regime,
because most of the treatment is done by assistants, who dont have the
experience or the expertise to be able to tailor it for the needs of the individual
Thus, some will
routinely use a long downregulation protocol , which uses about 8 days of
injections before the period starts, for down regulation before beginning the
IVF cycle. Other use a short protocol, which starts from Day 1 of the cycle;
while other use a some will use a GnRH antagonist protocol.
pride in the fact that we will tailor the protocol according to what the
patient's requirements are. We are not rigid, because the treatment is crafted
personally us, and not by assistants -
we dont have any assistants ! This is why its not a mindless checklist
protocol , where one size is forced to fit all patients, and everyone is
treated the same, no matter what their ovarian reserve is.
