I had 5 mature follicles on cycle day 13 and my E3 level was 777. The largest was 20mm and the smallest was 17mm. The details of this round of injectibles is in my siggie.
Tomorrow I do a "booster" shot of the trigger medication. I guess I give myself a half dose of the what the trigger shot was and it helps things stick if I am pregnant. I had never heard of this before. Anyone else?

First IUI had 2 follies, only 1 reached 18mm by the time of the IUI...ended in BFN.

Doing my 2nd IUI tomorrow. Two days ago I had 4 follies at 18,17,15 and 14. RE wanted me to stim one more day to try and get them all a bit bigger. I won't do another u/s before my IUI...so I won't know the final sizes of them....just hoping they all grew big enough to release eggs!!!

Most of the information is in my signature. My 2nd cycle my follies were around 15 and 16 so I did one more day of repronex then trigger the following day. I got a BFP, but it ended up being a chemical that I lost at 5w0d.

My 3rd cycle I had 4 good follicles 18, 17, 16 & 15 and two more that my RE thought could contain a mature egg at 13 and 12. My RE said that from research they do in IVF cycles they have found that with repronex (especially for the number of days that I used it) smaller follicles are more likely to contain a mature egg than in plain clomid or femara cycles. I just got my BFP so we'll see how it turns out!

UPDATE: Conceived triplets!
