Stimulated IUI - days for follicles to mature vary?

Postby Meili » Tue Nov 28, 2017 4:55 am

I undertook a (unsuccesful) stimulated IUI cycle 2 months ago. Waiting for this month's af to show up to start again, but planned clinique Christmas closures are in the way. My natural cycles are so long I would rather not wait till the new year (it'd be late Feb probably :( ), but how can I know how long it will take for the follicles to mature? It took exactly 15 days for me from the start of the injectables to the IUI procedure this one time. Can I go by that info? When you went through stimulation (IUI or IVF), did it take the same time each time if you used the same protocol? Thank you for your help! Baby dust to all!

15 days sounds about right,give or take 1-2days.

For all of my IUI's, I have had 4, it has been done on days 13-15. But I am like clockwork with my cycles. Good luck to you!

I started my first IUI this month. 11/20 I started with 7 follicles on the left that were not mature. 11/21 I took Femara for 5 days. 150 Gonal f injection on 11/24 and 11/26. 11/27 ultrasound showed 4 follicles and 3 we’re mature sizes 21, 19, 16, 9. Sonit tookn7 Days for mine to mature. This morning i just found out my estrogen level is low 192. And it should be about 600 for 3 mature follicles. Does anyone have experience with low estrogen during IUI process? I am supposed to ovulate soon I really hope they done cancel my IUI

Lyn you are correct for 3 mature eggs ur Estrogen is pretty low but also the follies could be “empty” I think your doctor could add some Estrogen to ur scheme.

Today’s bloodwork came back and estrogen is 300. Doctor advised the Femara lowers your estrogen so results will not be accurate due to Femara. The fact that it’s increases while on the meds is good
