April IUI

Postby Kelseyjo » Mon Mar 23, 2015 7:01 am

Hi Ladies I will be starting a new board for my 3rd IUI cycle. Here is a little about us. My DH and i have been TTC for the past 5 years (well the first 2 we were not preventing anythingif you would consider that). Long story short He had to have surgery do to having a varicocle. His count was 2 million 50% good. Well then i found out a year after i had to have surgery do to endometriosis. (Seriously the hits kept coming.) so we decide that we would meet with a specialist.
We had already done 3 months worth of 50 mg clomid, no luck.

Well I started Lupron on Friday. I start Gonal F on the 31st and then I start Menopur on April 2nd. I have blood work and a baseline ultrasound on Wed. I am so nervous because last iui cycle they found a cyst and had to remove it right away and it was an awful experience. I am hoping on Wednesday they tell things look good and to continue my meds. I am looking for a stress feel cycle this time but aren't we all?!? lol hoping for the best!

Hi all, I will be doing IUI #2 in April. My first IUI was in March but just found out it wasn't successful so stopped progesterone last night and waiting on af's arrival.

We are doing femera/clomid combo this time. I was slow to respond to clomid, it delayed my ovulation a week (normally ovulate cd 14-15, didn't ovulate until cd21 with one mature follicle). So this time RE wants to do femara days 1-5, clomid days 3-7, then I will go in on cd 12 for a follicle scan. His hope is that this combination will help to stimulate more follicles. I had never heard of using both, and I really can't find much information when I do a search online. Hoping this does the trick!

Good luck to us all!
3 early losses (natural bfps)
IUI #1-3 - BFN
IVF #1 - transferred 2 3-day embryos - BFN
IVF #2 - converted to IUI - BFP! - MC at 5 weeks
IVF #3 - 1 hatching 5 day blast transferred - 4 frosties
5dp5dt bfp :D
Beta #1 10dp5dt = 264
Beta #2 12dp5dt = 699

Welcome Britgr27. I was also late with Af after a failed IuI in December. Leo after AF took her sweet time I was able to start medication and IuI is scheduled for April 12th. Good luck to you as well and lots of baby dust!

Keeptrying15 Welcome! This is also my 2nd IUI. Due to my PCOS I believe that's why i am not able to just try clomid I wish it would be a lot cheaper for me but since I also do not have a male partner I believe that all factors in on why I have to use stimulation medications. I have heard of clomid used with accompaning medications try not to stress about that I am sure you will find other women on here who have used them ;). Good luck to you and lots of baby dust!

Hi ladies, I'm new to the TWW community and this is my first post! Really happy to find this forum as it helps to have others who are understanding and going through the same thing I am.

Some info:

I am 40, DH is 44 and we were married June 2014. We have unexplained infertility, though my age and weight don't help matters.
This is our 2nd IUI, first one was in Jan/Feb '15....we took the last cycle off as I wanted a break and we were going to be out of town.
Started 5mg Femara on 23/3 and going in for blood work and scan tomorrow, 26/3. Will be starting 300ui of Gonal F tomorrow as well.

Our doc changed a few things for this IUI cycle:
Femara increased from 2.5mg/day to 5mg/day
Gonal F increased from 100 to 300ui
Orgalutran added to treatment plan but need to wait till the follies get to a certain size before I inject it. I'm not familiar with why this is used so any insight is appreciated:)
Last cycle we triggered with Ovidrel and IUI was done 16hrs later. I was concerned that it was done too soon but left it to the expertise of our doc and the clinic. This time, we have decided to do two IUIs back-to-back to increase our chances. Will also be going back to acupuncture, I found it was a good stress reliever.

I'm anticipating that our IUIs will be done late next week or early the following week. Fx for all you ladies!
Me 40, DH 44. Unexplained infertility

Currently IUI#3
Microflare protocol(low dose lupron+saline) + Gonal F 300iu CD2-CD11
Ovidrel 1/5, IUI 3/5
Beta scheduled 15/5

IUI#2, 04/04/15
Femara 5mg, Gonal F 350ui, Orgalutran, Ovidrel, Progesterone, BFN

IUI#1 07/02/15
Femara 2.5mg, Gonal F 100ui, Ovidrel, Progesterone, BFN

Welcome ladies! I am so glad to have cycle buddies. I went for my E2 and baseline ultrasound today everything is great no Cyst this cycle! I am so relieved I was freaking out all week. So with that said we are still on track looks like I will start the Gonal-F 3/31 and another ultrasound 4/6 and insemination somewhere around 4/12. So happy today was a go! Lots of baby dust to all you ladies and may we all get lucky this cycle! ;)

Hey everyone I'm coming over from the March IUI, was almost sure I nailed it in March but apparently not, no AF yet but more than positive she is right around the corner and all the tests I have been taking lately have come out negative. So I am excited and anxious to get into April. AFM right now I am just in limbo until the ugly witch shows her face. on the other hand I am in desperate need to vent somewhere... DH has heard enough and I am just trying to dump it and move on I CANNOT let this junk mess up my cycle its just to expensive... anyways my problem is... Myself my best friend (23 yrs) and our good friend of like 15years ... (high school friends) anyways we are all still good friends they have come to my wedding and now they are getting married and we were invited (which we expected) BUT the bachelor and bachelorrette parties thats where the tangle is... I am invited to hers and my husband (who i might add in feb hosed down barf at this mans 30th party to keep him from getting in trouble) is not invited to his for what reason we dont know but I am just so flipping mad it should have been hands down guest list was easy and they leave him out... needless to say I am not going to hers out of respect to my husband. what would you ladies do if you faced this? Hope all is well otherwise. Baby Dust and Prayers

Just got home after having my IUI :) It didn't hurt at all (not like the HSG!) & I'm really hopeful that this will work. I'm doing 6 clicks of Ovidrel every 3 days for the next 9 days, then I have to wait until the 13th April for my pregnancy blood test. Hope I don't go too crazy waiting :P

@Britgr27 Haha, yeah mine will be happy too. He wants me to be able to just not think about it too much, but I can't help it!

@Kelseyjo, @Speedofpain, @Keeptrying15, @MrsA14, @grace79 & @Onestepcloser I'm keeping everything crossed for you guys :)
