femara, follistim, ovidrel and iui 5th round

Postby mglupe1979 » Sun Jun 05, 2016 3:03 pm

Hi everyone I'm new to this, but i have been reading alot of you all post. I really dont want to loose hope. I'm one of those that have unexplained infertility have done 4 iui a D&C procedure to make sure everything is ok. My last iui i was given 5mg of Famara 75 of follistim and a trigger shot. In all my iui i have had 3 to four mature follicles, all over 18mm to 28mm. On this las iui i was very bloated sore and tender. Husband count over 60 million post wash. Everything look good we were so positive this time was going to work but to my surprice 5 days post ovulation i started spoting i was also on progesteron twice a day. Not sure what happen. Has this happen to any one off you? I'm so scare to try again. I need some words of encouragement please. I wanna try this month again but feel that im not mentally ready to go through another desapointment

I'm in the same boat as you almost exactly, only Ive just finished my second round with follistim and ovulated yesterday. It was my 4th IUI. We have just discovered that my estradiol levels are dismal. 67 with two "mature" follicle sizes after 3 injections of 75 mg follistim. Keep a check on your estradiol levels and make sure they match the follicle numbers, there should be at least 200 mg of estradiol per mature follicle. I would ask for additional blood draws for estradiol after CD10 pull. That gave us enough info to put me on Estrace supplements and double progesterone supplements.
As far as your spitting, 5dpo is along The time line of possible implantation bleeding. So that is a possibility!!?? Fingers crossed! Let me know :)

Im sorry, this site did not give me an alerts of a message. Well for me my progesteron levels were very low, although i was on a double dose morning and night. Started heaving bleeding on the 22 of may and has not seen my period for this month to give it a try. Never been so anxious to try it again but this time with menopur injectables femara trigger shut and iui.
How about you? Was it it success?

Hi!

I'm on gonal-f with a trigger and iui. I should be ready to trigger on Tuesday at my next u/s appointment!! This is round 2 for us with Injectibles and iui.

Mglupe I agree that could have been possible implantation, have you started af or when would you expect her or are you in another round since this thread started??

Mglupe, did you test? You never know!!
Ckatta, what did your ultrasound show? Did you trigger?! How many follies?

As for me, I went Monday for my day 8 US. Its our last round, so I basically told my RE to pull out all of the stops and leave me with no doubt we did all we could. He increased my dosage and frequency with a new medication (gonal-F). On Monday I had 3 follicles on my
Right side, 2@13 and 1@10, and one on my left at 10, which is a side we learned was blocked so not worried about it. I'm going today (Wednesday) to see what has grown. Hoping and praying that they are mature with matching estradiol levels. I am exhausted to the core. It's 3 am and I can't sleep for thinking about it. I have no self control left to "just relax" lol.
Good luck to all of us! Maybe this will be the thread where we all get pregnant and we are still here 6 months later!

Morning!!

You're almost ready!!! I bet they'll be mature or close to it today!!! How exciting!!! I've got my fx for you!!! It is hard to relax when you are feeling pressure from the ticking of the clock, we have agreed not to do Ivf (too expensive) we are on our 2nd iui and they usually only do 3-4 he said before they recommend Ivf, standing on our last leg so I completely get why you can't relax or sleep when you know this is your last cycle. I hope you get your bfp!!

I triggered last night at 730 and will have our iui fine Thursday morning at 730!!! I had 3 follies last cycle but I had 3 possible dominant but one 1 fully matured by yesterday, the second was at 16.5 and mature is 18 so it's possible that it matures by trigger time last night but for sure only 1 follie this cycle for us. I'm a little disappointed, I felt like the multiple follies gave us a better shot at fertilizing one, I pray that this cycle is it for both of us.

We will be cycle buddies if you are ready today, we will only be a day or 2 off from each other!!! Let me know how it goes today!!

How extided both of you are getting ready for the two week process. Im over here not knowing what is going on with me no rf no sign og being prego. Im stressing so bad, it really hard to relax when your mine just play tricks on you. Every thing after the d&c procudure has make my body go waaak. Sin may 18 no sign of bloody merry. Ahh im so ready to start this round.
Question why does your specialist trigger so early? Mine usually wait for the leading folicle to be in the early 20mm this is to give the other a chance to catch up and have a better chance to conceive? I wish both of you the best of luck and for all 3 of us to get our bfp by next month.

Nwt how did your appointment go?? Are you ready??

Mglupe have you tested at all?? That's a really late af!! Fx!!! My RE says 18 is mature for Injectible meds and 20 for oral meds. It is really hard to relax when you're in limbo, I don't blame you at all!! Did you ask your dr for a blood test to check for pregnancy??

I had my iui today, all went well! Now fx for good news in 2 weeks!!

Wow!!! You've got great follicles , are they fresh or leftover?? Fx for you this cycle!!!

I don't have any symptoms, nothing out of the ordinary anyways lol.

Just out of curiosity how come they have you on oral and Injectible meds? I've never heard of that before and think it's interesting lol.

I hate that these things take like 4 days to appear on the main page and then go away when someone comments!!!
Sounds like you girls are on a roll! As for me, of course the best day to have done an IUI would have been Sunday, and they don't do IUIs on Sunday, so I triggered Friday night and went in Saturday AM for IUI. For some reason, DH count was a 10.5 mil with 40% motility when it's normally 20 mil with 70-90% motility, so that was weird. My Estradiol was too low for the amount and size of follicles I had, so I'm not expecting much. I've kind of given up, and if it works then I will be pleasantly surprised. Right now, I'm having some right side abdominal discomfort that won't go away, and I'm concerned one of my follicles was a cyst that didn't go away. I may call in the am for a "problem visit" to check it out. If it's not a cyst, I need to rule out appendicitis bc I'm getting mighty uncomfortable.
Keep us updated ladies!!

Hi!!

If you go into the actual ttc forum at the top it says to "view my posts" and you can see every post you've started or commented on and if there's new posts :)

I'm so sorry :( why did they trigger you if your levels didn't match your follicle size? How long have you had the pain for?? Id definitely get that checked out!!! Maybe bc everything seemed a little off it'll be the cycle that somehow everything works out :) fx!! So youre 4 dpiui?

Mglupe how are you doing?
