This cycle I started with 75iu (one vial) of Bravelle a day. After a couple days I was upped to 1 1/2 vials. I did the injections from CD3-12.

Today, on the day of my IUI, I had a 19mm follicle and a 24mm one.

-Menopur 75iu days 4-8, 37.5iu days 9-11 (or 3-7 and 8-10 according to the RE since I started AF in the evening...so he counted the next day as CD1)
-Femara 5mg days 4-8

Ultrasound on day 9 (8 according to RE) showed lots of follies. The biggest were 13, 12, 11, 11, 11, 9.

Reduced my dose of Menopur to half because I wasn't going to be monitored after that (because of vacation) and I didn't want to risk all 5 of the bigger ones popping. The RE thought that dropping my dose would produce 1 or 2 nice follies and ensure that the 11s didn't grow much more.

Took trigger on day 12, ovulated on day 14.

(Last time I did the same dose, RE didn't reduce my dose of Menopur. I was monitored again 3 days later and had 3 follies...BFP with 1 baby who is now a two-year-old.)

Should also mention that I've gotten pregnant twice on my own before (both miscarriages) and went on injects this time because I have unexplained FSH issues (no DOR). So I'm not sure I actually need them, hence the very low doses.

Will update with BFP or BFN.

ETA: :bfp: - with just 1 baby!

Just on week 5 of menopur this time and now have more than 8 follicles - of which at least 4 are big enough to go the distance - so cycle cancelled

So depressed as last week nothing - go back this week expecting to carry on and now have to cancel. I cried all the way back on the tube - people must have thought I was mental!!

Hey guys,
I've got a buttload of follies but we went through with it anyway because my eggs are so old the likelihood of many multiple fertilizations is very low. This was my first medicated cycle. The past two cycles I produced one nice follie on my own each time, and doc couldn't believe I didn't conceive. So this time we went all out: follistim 150 x 3 days and 200 x 3 days, then trigger. On day of IUI, had:
lining: 11.7
right: 21, 22
left: 21, 17, 20, 21, 20, 25
E2 two days before was 1104.
If NONE of those work it's a sad, sad state of affairs...

Hi everyone

Just started No. 3 with menopur and trigger - FX!!

Ziso any news?

CattyCat congratulations and many stickys for you.

If you don't mind me asking - why are you using the menopur - I'm on it due to no pituitary gland so no hormones of my own. Always good to know it works - now just keeping my FX that it works for us this time- third time lucky!!!
