I had a baseline today and she found about 10 follicles... :shock: The R/E who did it said it was a lot at the same time but apparently *my* R/E likes to see a lot. I don't know what's going to happen, but some were already between 12-15...

I did Clomid 150mg on CD 3-7 and Bravelle injects for 6 days. My follies are 14, 17, 18, and 19. I trigger tonight for IUI on Wednesday.

I think this might be our month!

For my last cycle i took Puregon injection 50iu CD 5-11 - then ovidrel trigger.....ONE follie , double IUI- BFN

For this cycle i took Puregon injection 75iu CD 3-8, then 50iu CD9 25iu CD10 - then ovidrel trigger.....SIX follies - 15mm x5 19mm x1 , single IUI- BFN

I am 1 DP IUI.. Should i take prgesterone, the nurese says i can take if i want.. i have 11-13day luteal phase usually.. think it will help increase chances at all? what day can i start to take it?

also, my E2 level the day before trigger was over 3000 is that normal - seems high..is that generally a good or bad thing to be that high?

thanks for your advice :)

I took 225iu of Bravelle for 5 days, went in for my 1st u/s and b/w. Turns out I needed to take my trigger that evening! (CD9) Had 2 follies 17.5mm and 18.5mm on my right and there were 3 more in the 15mm+ range on the left, lining was 11.5mm. I don't really remember the sizes on the left 'cause I don't have a tube on that side and wasn't really paying attention, but that's what I got after 5 days of stimming on that dose.

Also, I was always told to start my progesterone supplements on the 3rd day after my trigger shot. I don't think it will hurt to take the progesterone. If anything, it will only help. I have a LP of about 13-14 days but I spot for a few days before AF shows so I know my progesterone is lacking towards the end there. It's still in the implantation range around day 12 so spotting is not good (unless it's IB of course)...and you really can't tell the difference at that point.

Praying for :bfp: s for everyone!!!

Follie scan on CD 11 ~ 5 follies (22mm, 19mm, 17mm, 2x11mm)

Ovidrel (250 mcg) trigger on CD 13

Beginning on CD 16 - Prometrium (200mg) Progesterone Supplement 3xday

My results??? SEE MY SIGGY! :D

Good luck to everyone!

Hey guys, another success story here to motivate you.

We did Follistim, 75IU (11 nights CD3-14) (after 3 failed clomid rounds)

Follies on CD 13 = 1@20mm, 3@15mm or smaller

Trigger CD15, Ovulated CD17, BD at home (no IUI)

BFP at 10 dpo :bfp:

Beta at 11dpo = 98! :shock: (beta not repeated by my choice)

7 week ultrasound shows TWINS! :shock: :shock:

I was TOTALLY depressed the whole time I took the meds, even skipped a night I was too depressed to shoot myself in the tummy.

We waited one day longer than suggested to trigger (my doc is trigger happy)

The smaller follie must have matured and caught up in that extra day.

I didn't take any supplements except EPO, and progesterone after BFP.

Anyway, even when it seems like the darkest time and it won't work, it just might, so don't lose hope!

Nicole-I'm so happy to read your post! I had a m/c on Thanksgiving, the BFP was the result of an IUI, however, I got pregnant all natural in May, which also ended in m/c...but I know I can get pregnant, it's the staying pregnant that is the issue. Anyway, next step is Follistim/Gonal-F, Femara and Ovidril and Prometrium at time of BFP but no IUI. I was so glad to read that you got your BFP w/injectibles but no IUI.

Now I'm just waiting for my body to let me know when we can start over...
