Doing 2nd IUI with Femara and injectibles....anyone else?

Postby Ajb38 » Mon Apr 03, 2017 9:10 am

Hi, I am 39 and on cd7. Today is my last day of taking 5mg of femara and I start follistim injections tonight for 3 nights. I should do my 2nd IUI on Saturday or Monday. Not sure which day the dr will go with. Anyone else in the same place as me? I would love some buddies to wait with.

I'm 36 and on CD9. This is my 1st IUI cycle. But no Famara/injectibles for me. Just using 100mg of clomid. I have my mid cycle check this Thursday to determine timing of the IUI.

I go on Thursday also to determine what day my IUI will be on!!! I hope it works for you. I only had one follicle last month for my 1st IUI so I wasn't too hopeful. That is why they added the injections this month. I need that extra boost.

I just got back from the dr. On right I have a 18.3mm follicle and on the left I have 16.2mm, 19.31mm and 13.2mm. So excited that the follistim worked. She decided I should do one more shot of follistim tonight to see if we can boost that 13mm little guy. Then I trigger tomorrow night and IUI Sunday morning.

Let me know how your appointment goes today.

Awesome news for you! Sounds like you might end up with twins or triplets with all those follies!

I had lots of smaller ones on the right. And then 2 decent sized ones on the left (11 & 15). She wants to let them grow some more. So, we will probably trigger Monday and do the IUI Tuesday. Unless of course I get a positive OPK before Monday. But I've heard Clomid can make you O later so I'm assuming I won't O on my own before then.

Oh please don't say that!!! I already have one son. Not sure I could handle multiples, lol. But of course I would be happy with whatever we are blessed with.

Those 2 will definitely grow a lot by Tuesday!!!And the smaller ones may get to a good size also. If it doesn't work for you this month you should talk to your dr about follistim. It did wonders for me this month.

Hi Ajb!! I'm on my second cycle this month too. I think we chatted a little bit last month too. Seems like we're going through the same process because my doc put me on Gonal-F injections this month as well and I went this am and also have 4 big follies. Im triggering tomorrow night and doing IUI on Thursday. Cautiously hopeful this month. How are you feeling? Have you been telling your friends/family what you're going through? Glad we can come here to talk to others going through the same thing. Sending you lots of baby dust! Ashley

Ashley- sounds like we are exactly the same! So nice to have others to relate to. I actually feel really good. Didn't have nearly the ovulation pains or cramping after the IUI like I did last time which of course is freaking me out, lol. My immediate family knows and about 3 friends, that is it. I don't want people to know that I am pregnant so early if it does work. I am one of those that likes to wait until the first trimester is over to tell everyone. At least I did with my son. I feel like it jinxs things when you tell too early.
Good luck on your IUI Thursday. And keep me posted how it goes.

I am 8 dpiui now.
Progesterone check yesterday was 22.
Most of my "symptoms" are the same as every other month. The only new thing is the lotion like CM. Staying positive but don't want to get my hopes up too much.

Yeah, I totally understand that. I am acting as though I am not pregnant until it is confirmed otherwise.
I just took a test and got a faint line. But of course I am questioning if it is real or still trigger. I hate this. Can't even be excited about seeing a line for fear of being disappointed.

I would think at 12dpiui the trigger would be out. I tested mine out and it was gone at 8 days. I do drink a lot of water every day and I know that helps it go through your system faster.
