Follicle sizes?

Postby Jmrb » Wed Aug 19, 2015 3:55 pm

I was wondering if we could start a post with follicle sizes at IUI. It could be this cycle or previous cycles. I had my 2nd IUI yesterday and am now worried about getting pregnant with quintuplets. I know it's very rare to happen, but my mind always freaks out. Do we all have this crazy fear or is it just me? This cycle I had a 21mm, a 20mm, two 19mms and an 18. Last month I had one 18mm and two 14mm and a BFN.

Anyone want to share?

Wow Jmrb!! That's awesome! Mine were 24mm, 20mm, and 14mm. I can see your concern... I wouldn't worry too much about it. Like you said, the chance of all 4 being released, AND fertilized is rare! But this is my first IUI, and I'm only 10DPO, so I don't have much experience for ya, sorry. Best of luck!

From what I've read, iui's preformed with 3-5 follicles have the highest success rates! I say the more targets for the spermies, the better :)

My iui was last Wednesday morning the 12th, and I had 1-20mm, 1-18mm, 1-16.5mm & 2-15's 36 hours before, at the time of trigger so they grew some before the insem. I am itching to test!!!!

I'm 9 today but my Hubby made me promise not to test until 2 weeks past. He says I always stress and POAS way too early and obsess,,,, he's right :/

5 days from now, Wednesday morning, I'll test and then call the Doc WHEN it's positive :)

What's your next step? Soooo exciting!!!

I called them just a bit ago, they said to come in Monday morning. So hoping to get a good beta! First I was worried about getting a positive, now I'm worried about it sticking or not. But trying to stay positive! My wife is so excited. Omg God bless you for waiting! That's will power girlfriend. 5 days isn't too far away though!! You got this! Is this your first IUI?
