I did Femara (all 10 pills on day 4). I know it's unusual but that's how my RE does it. Then I did 75iu of Follistim from CD6-10. On CD 11 I had 2 mature follies - 19 & 20. I also had one at 17 that day.

I got my first ever BFP from that cycle on 9dpiui.

UPDATE - We found out on 12/13 that we're having twins!

This was my first follistim cycle. I've done 2 femara cycles- BFN

CD3-10 35 iU, CD 11-14 50iU- started with at least 4 follies growing, but ended on CD15 with one dominant follie 19 mm and one likely nothing 12 mm. E2 was 336
Triggered CD15, timed BD with possible O CD17, and then prometrium starting 2dpo

I have injected menopur 225iu, on this cycle I had 19 and 17mm on my left and some smaller ones on my right, which was a day before trigger. My problem is not getting follicles, its not getting too many and then making sure my womb lining is thick enough. This time I have also been using estradiol patches to help with the lining, also baby asprin. I am now 11 DPO and trying really hard not to do a pregnancy test! Wish me luck :wink:

It is so helpful to see how others are doing with injectibles, # of follies, etc. This is my 2nd cycle on Follistim (5 mg Femara on CD 1-5, Follistim 75 starting CD 5). Today is CD 10 and yesterday's bloodwork shows my E2 at 209 and 4 follies that around 16-18 mm. More bloodwork today and another ultrasound to see when I'll trigger. I'm guessing I'll trigger tomorrow then IUI Monday or Tuesday....Good luck to everyone!
