difference entre amp et pma


  1. Hello Fabienne!
    We are LDCs. We have to stop our FIV1 because there were only two follicles. (protocol : Decapeptyl, MENOPUR Ovitrelle but has not been administered). My ovaries are currently blocked, my temperature is very low. I have not ovulated since the beginning of the stimulation (last ovulation, 23 about September). How “repeat from”? (plants, homeopathy, food?)
    Thank you in advance for your advice…

    • Mary Goodnight,
      Normally the ovaries will unlock all alone because there is more daily injections to block.
      To you to follow the clues to fertility (glair, collar and temperature) to identify the time of ovulation.
      I advise you not to take anything : you have too many hormones in the body to eliminate you “entertain” to here !
      Cordially, Fabienne
