    Congrats!!!! Question ’cause I’m new to all the IVF meds…is your protocol standard or normal (whatever that means…lol)?

      There are tons of different protocols. Mine was pretty common at my RE. I think more people do a Lupron protocol though. I liked my protocol b/c everything except the trigger came in a preloaded pen with a very fine needle, so giving myself the shots was fairly easy.
