Chance of multiples with gonadotropins?

Postby FletcherGT » Sat Nov 04, 2017 4:09 am

I wondered if anyone planning IUI with injectables had more than one follicle growing and had been warned of the possibility of multiples? That's where we find ourselves at the minute. However, we have quite a few smaller follicles too so we have to keep injecting over the weekend and wait until Monday for an ultrasound to see if we're good to trigger or if we have to abandon the cycles. But we have been advised to discuss multiple pregnancy, I just wondered what the chances are from other peoples experiences? So far it's only looking like two main follicles but like I say, lots of small ones.

With any drugs used for ovulation there is a chance of multiples but with injectables the risk is higher indeed.
I had three cycle of injectables and each time I had more than three mature follies.

Hi Danaa thanks for the reply, I've got a son to IUI treatment but I can't remember there being more than one mature follicle last time round and that was with injectables. I wonder how many people on here have gone full term with multiples from Gonadotropins, anyone out there?

With careful monitoring you can reach 36-37w with twins,it depends on each body.
Good luck and I hope you get ur bfp!!
