Question about Lupron dosage - 20 units?


#1

For my first fresh cycle and 3 FETs, I was on 10 Units of Lupron at the beginning and then ramped down to 5 Units (standard protocol for my clinic). For the upcoming cycle, my doctor has increased the starting dose to 20 Units which will then drop to 10 Units.

The reasoning behind this is to achieve more synchronized growth of the follicles, since last time, I had a few follicles start earlier than others causing different sized clusters to grow.

The doctor admitted that there is always a risk of oversuppression. Have any of you been over-suppressed by 20 units of Lupron? What is the standard dosage for your clinic? Thanks in advance for any input!
