IUI #4

Postby KimmyM0808 » Wed Sep 02, 2015 5:15 pm

Well I just have my fourth iui today. This time is look letrizole (femara) instead of clomid on days 3-7 and did the ovidrel trigger shot. I know that on Monday when I went for monitoring I have 3 follicles that were standing out. I know one was 20.5 and the others were in the teens ( I forget exactly) Today my husbands post wash was only 3 million (last two months were 1 million) and motility was 67% (last 2 were only 50% and 60%). Our infertility is caused by my husband's low count, on my end I ovulate regularly and all my testing came back clear. I was just wondering if anyone can give me some insights on my chances. Does having 3 follicles increase my chances? How much does the motility affect my chances even though there is a low count? We have been ttc for a year now. Any success stories with similar cases? I am just looking for some hope because I am slowly losing hope and it's getting harder and harder to go through this.

hi Kimmy- I am on 12dpiui today and wondering if you have experience with about how long it took your booster hcg shots (if you took them) to wear off? I tested bfp this morning but I don't trust it. My last booster was aug 31. I have been ttc for year and half and i'm just worn out from this. next try will be with clomid. I really feel af coming and my bbt was way low this morn. good luck hon xxxx

Hi Kimmy,

I have no advice to offer yet, just support! We are in very similar situations and I have some of the same questions as you. We are on IUI #3, TTC 3 years. I have PCOS and DH has MFI. We had 3 mature follicles and 5.2 million motile sperm this past IUI. I am 1 dpiui. Truly hoping and praying for a BFP for both of us!

Countmein- I just did the ovidrel trigger shot at the end. I took letrizole days 3-7. Thanks for the support and I am glad I am not the only one feeling the way I am feeling. I wish you the best!! And keep me updated. I go Tuesday for blood work. Fingers crossed but feeling crampy lately and that af is on her way.

Futurebabybee- I am sorry you are going through all this as well. When do you go for a pregnancy test? Good luck to you and I wish you all the best.

I go Tuesday for blood work. I am afraid to test at home. I want to just hold out until Tuesday, Even though it is so hard. Thinking of you!

I guess I don't want to be disappointed before the disappointment. Is it bad that I am always negative? It's just so hard not to be at this point. I also rather think negative and be surprised than think positive and be hurt.
