Number of Follicles on Injections?

Postby Cacton1211 » Thu Apr 30, 2009 2:02 pm

Since the Clomid board has this sticky I thought we should have one too, it seems to be a recurrent question that keeps popping up, I'm going to make one for E2 levels as well.

I had 3 on my left 20, 20 and 17 and one 14 on my right.

Babydust to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had 3 mature follies (17-18, 17, and 16 two days before ovulation) on Menopur (with Metformin, Femara, Novarel trigger, and Prometrium vaginally after ovulation) - the doc said he likes to see 3-5 but in someone my age (28 ) 3 is ideal. It worked and I am expecting one baby. :) My BFP chart is in my signature.

I had 3 good size follies on day 5 u/s which was Monday and today is Tuesday. I go for another u/s tomorrow so we will see if they have grown any. One of the follie's had already matured but I think they are holding out for the other two on the other side. Last cycle I only had one follie so I'm hoping that this will increase my chances. Please god!!!

Cycle #1: With 150iu of Bravelle for 8 straight days I had 4 mature follies and a few others that would have matured by the time we did the IUI.
So somewhere between 4 and 8 follies total. Cycle was canceled.

Cycle #2: 75iu of Bravelle for 6 days and 150iu on the 7th day and had a 17mm and 13mm and a few others under 10. BFN

Cycle #3: Rotating 75iu and 150iu Bravelle for 7 days and had a 19, and two 11's on my left ovary. BFN

Cycle #4: Rotating 150iu and 75iu Bravelle for 8 straight days and had a 19, 18, 15, 15, and 11.

I'm sorry Moo...it's frustrating. I hope you are doing okay.

Sometimes I wish I could speed up time to get through all of this. My two follicles on my right turned out to be cysts and disappeared. I was crushed. I only had one follicle but I kept telling myself that is what every person has on a normal cycle w/out meds so I have the same chance.

Thanks Jilly! :)

This month I took 75iu of bravelle on cd2-7, and 150iu on cd8.

The follicles on the day of trigger (cd9) were 13mm and 17mm.

Not sure what they were two days later when I had the IUI done.

I was on gonal-f 150 for 4 days, I ha a TON of follies so they dropped it down to 75 for 2 days and then 35.5 for the last day. I think I ended up with 1-20mm, 2-17 mm, 2- 16 mm. We went for it anyway! Because of my age(36) the doctor wasn't sure if the 17's and 16's would really be all that mature- I remember thinking "Holly crap! We may have triplets!" No such luck we got a :bfn: Boo Hoo! We will try again in August. Ahhh, the jys of trying to concieve! On a positive note- because I responded so well I still have some gonal- f in my fridge- so maybe I won't have to shell out so much money on meds this time! :)
