Wow 6! My doctor won't let me go ahead when there is more than 2 mature follicles due to the possibility of multiples.

Hi ladies, hope everyone is doing well.

Special_k: yes, O was painful but not more than usual. It just hurt to bend down and my hips hurt as well until 2-3 dpiui.
geeky_gab: 6 follies in the race, wow :) Good that you are being monitored so closely.

AFM, 4 dpiui now, already feeling out. Not physically, just somewhere inside I feel that this round didn't take. But we're definitely not giving up, not by a long shot!

Hi ladies :)
Special_k, I guess the RE's verdict depends on your history... this will be my 7th IUI and we never had a bfp, even with 3-4 follies. Last round, I had 5 and we went on with it : bfn.. the assumption is that, at my age, egg quality is most certainly falling and more than 50% of the eggs have chromosomial defects. That or I have issues preventing implantation, unfortunately, I doubt I'll know more about that only once we move on to IVF (in January - if needed, of course ;) )

Geeky_gab- yes I understand. Well hopefully you don't have to move on to IVF and you get your BFP this month.

I also will be moving on to IVF if this month's IUI does not work for us.

Hopefully we both don't have too. Fingers crossed!!!!

Good Mornin! I had my first IUI yesterday after using femara, follistim, and Ovidrel. Trying hard to keep my hopes in check but unfortunately, i have failed. My hopes are sky high... big surprise lol. Now for the 2week wait after trying naturally and with clomid over the last 6yrs! Good luck to all you ladies out there waiting with me!

Welcome Puttam, and fingers crossed!

AFM, surprisingly full of energy despite the progesterone. Hubby just seemed to realize yesterday that despite all our good results, IUI isn't a magic baby pill and may not work the 1st time. He was 100% sure. Hate to tell him I've been on this hopeful/sad rollercoaster every month for 3 years...

Currently in the waiting room at hospital awaiting my AI today. Sorry I have not responded but been so emotional and my head is all over the place. I have a lot to report so will get back to you all with the details in a few hours after my insemination. So glad of our little support group online x

Hi all I have had a stressful week with adenomyosis diagnosed on CD10. But all was well with my next scan on CD12 and I had my AI today. So my 2ww has now commenced.
Graceupongrace welcome to the chat my 3rd cycle buddy. I too will be having a re evaluation after this cycle to then try ICSI. My emotions have been crazy this time around. I had menopur injections.

Welcome balsamic I had a follicle that was 17mm on CD12 scan. I have also had the big O pains which I did not have the first time round geekygab. They have given me cyclogest suppositories to keep the lining of my uterus thick.
I hope you are all doing well with your cycles. I have a weekend of total relaxation so let me know how you are feeling. Baby dust to us all xx

Geekygab do you mind me asking how old you are as I'm 40 this year so feel my chances are greatly reduced too. Welcome puttam it appears we will be in our 2ww exactly at the same time!

Hi S3r1ca, good to hear from you, I hope that your pain subsides quickly and that you have a restful weekend.

I'm 36 moving onto 37. The RE was clear that if our 3 attempts (post-operation, so, since May) were not successful that we were waisting our time (because of our age) with IUI and should move on to IVF. He did however seem to think that our chances were rather good with IUI until our last try (november IUI will be our last).

Since we started TTC, we changed doctors though, since our first one flat out told DH, while I was sitting next to him, that "he had to accept the fact that he did not marry a "spring blossom"". I was LIVID.

Our chances may be thinner, but they are still there!

Welcome Puttam!

Glad to hear the progesterone is treating you well Balsami ;) what DPO are you now?

AFM, back from u/s, it was decided that I will trigger tonight with 5 follies (2 big ones, 3 smaller ones) for IUI on Sunday. The ob/gyn that was doing the u/s recommended we have DH swimmers tested for chromosomial defects too. We will certainly look into this before moving to IVF.

I am so anxious to
