I had asked my RE what the difference was between the long or short "flare" Lupron protocol and it is my understanding the short protocol is that the Lupron will stimulate release of a large amount of FSH (and LH) that will jump*start (flare*up) the follicles in order to have a better ovarian stimulation with more mature follicles and more eggs to utilize with IVF. I'm assuming your RE probably changed your protocol because the long protocol didn't produce enough mature follicles and the short should help you have more; therefore, you'll have more eggs than you're last IVF cycle. I'm no doctor though, but that is what I got from my RE, if I understood him right. ;*)
No problem. You've helped me quite a bit too and also eased my mind on several issues. My RE says that the long protocol is what they like to start with because it usually has a better success rate, but for some, as in with your case, the short protocol is much much better. I guess because everyone's body is different. But the short protocol "should" help you produce more follies than your last cycle, so hopefully you will have much better luck this go around and it will be your last. Good luck!
