Responded well to first ICSI cycle, endo lining and follicles poor in 2nd. Any better hopes ?

In my previous and first ever icsi cycle, I had responded really well to the meds, had 14 eggs extracted, 9 of them fertilized into good quality embies. Three grade a embies were transferred on day 3 and my endo lining was approx 12mm.... Didn t workout despite everything being textbook perfect.. This was in Sep-Oct 2012... In my current cycle, my response, follicles and endo lining are all f poor quality... My e2 went upto 9000 on day 7 of Stims and my dr decreased my dosage (1each of Puregon & Ferti M from 2 each). My e2 started falling and dropped to 2000 over the next 5 days and my follies almost stopped growing. My dr upped my dosage to 2p & 2fm again from day 9 of Stims but the e2 still didn t rise till today, when it reached up to 3500 and I have approx 2 at 17mm, 3 at 15mm and a couple above 12mm and around 10 less than 12mm on both sides (total of 15 follies on each side)... My endo dropped from 8 to 6mm but is 6.8 today... Do u think I might have hope in this cycle?

Thanks for your query.
Frankly the findings in this cycle are not that favourable.
You have only two follicles that seem to be promising and the endometrium is also not that good.
However, as you already know, fertility is not always mathematics.
Do not lose hope as conceptions occur with the most weird of cycles.
All the best.
