I have recently completed an IVF cycle where only 2 eggs were collected. I gave an AMH of 6 and was on 300 Gonal-F. Am I wasting my time trying IVF again or am I likely to get more eggs on further cycles?

There is another way to assess ovarian activity: astral follicle count (AFC) by ultrasound scan. If your AFC is 4 or below, it is very unlikely you will have a higher egg number even with a large dose of Gonal-F. In this case modified natural IVF could result in similar/better outcome using lot less medication. If your AFC is in the higher than 4 then a more intense stimulation protocol is the answer. Our Doctors would be pleased to see you to explore these options.
