Success stories with Low Follicle Count??

I am mid cycle of my 2nd IVF & have 3/4 folliciles growing now.  My first cycle in Nov 2009 I had 13.  I can't believe it could be so drastically reduced in 5 months but these are the cards I am given.
Please someone tell me they got pregnant with low follicle count??

My first 2 cycles with the same protocol and same meds, I have 12 follicles.  On the third one,  with the same protocol and same meds also, I only have 3/4 follicles, then RE increased the meds, at the end I got about 8/9 follicles.  Is your RE going to increase your dose?  I wish you the best and this will be your month.

it's a good news.  I was on 375  bravel and 1 menopur at first then increase to 3 menopur. the following IVF cycle, 3 month later, I have 450  follistim + 3 menopur, I got 20 eggs.....could you believe?  so, sometime, the body just response differently, even I get older :-)

Hey there,
is your dr going to go ahead with the IVF with a low count? My dr told me if that happens, we will switch to IUI at the last minute but really it only takes one good egg right??? Keep the faith!  are you using the same meds you used the first time around?
