Brief Answer:
No universal protocol for poor responders.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to XXXXXXX
There is no universal protocol for poor responders & each doctor has her/her own perception & wants to try the thing found most useful by him/her.
Regarding injections, HMG (containing both FSH & LH) is preferable to pure FSH during stimulation.
There is no best set of injections. Normally we prefer to give high dose of HMG(300-450IU) with antagonist protocol & it gives decent results. One can try any other protocol with high dose HMG.
Ovigyn D has practically no side effect except acne even when taken long term.
Ovigyn D is the only medicine known to improve AFC & egg quality. For improving egg quality you can take plenty of antioxidants along with medicines/nutritional supplements containing co-enzyme Q.
Let me know if you have other concerns.
