How long does a short cycle of IVF take?

Does IVF protocol affect egg quality?

The method of ovarian stimulation may impact egg/embryo quality. The potential for the eggs to undergo maturation, successful fertilization and subsequent progression to good quality embryos that are capable of producing a healthy offspring is thought to be genetically determined.

What is the difference between long and short protocol?

In the long protocol, GnRH-a is commonly administered in the middle of the luteal phase of the previous cycle, whereas in the short protocol, GnRH-a is administered at the beginning of the menstruation cycle and continues until administration of hCG.

Is short protocol better for low AMH?

All agree that short protocols are better suited for women with low ovarian reserve. Indeed, down-regulation is probably not a good idea for someone who is already expected to be a poor responder to stimulation.

What is a poor responder IVF?

Poor responders represent more than a third of women undergoing assisted reproduction. Typically they are patients with advanced maternal age and low ovarian reserve. However, there is a younger group that unexpectedly demonstrates impaired response to controlled ovarian hyperstimulation.
