Follistim squirted back out!!!

Postby heelsgirl » Thu Feb 28, 2013 6:42 pm

EEK! Kinda freaked out. Tonight's dosage of follistim didn't all go in. For some reason, when my husband drew the needle out (even though he waited a few seconds) some leaked back out. Considering how small the dose is (150 ml), the amount that leaked out has me kinda freaked out. I don't think it was a whole lot, but it's hard to tell.

The next 36 hrs until my next ultrasound are going to be brutal from worry. I've been responding well, but a bit slowly, so I hope I haven't messed up my progression. :(

I wouldn't worry too much about it. There were several times that I noticed a drop or two of the medication coming back out from the injection site, but it didn't affect anything. Good luck this cycle!

:agree: I had a few drops come out tonight too with my meds, I wouldn't worry about it. It's almost inevitable that a drop or so will leak out of needle. Don't worry about it, you did what you were supposed to. You left needle in after injecting meds then pulled it out, you'll be fine!

Oh, and I take an even smaller dose than you lol. I'm 75 units for 5 days so I'm not worried, you don't need to worry either ;)

Thanks, ladies! Well, I shouldn't have worried. I went Sat am for an ultrasound, and there were 8 follicles in development! My RE sent me home to take ovidrel sat night because there was one mature follicle. He wanted to get that one and avoid the others from releasing. He said he couldn't risk me putting ovidrel off even another day.

So I took the trigger shot last night, and we had timed intercourse last night and again tomorrow morning! Eek! I'm so nervous!

It was 19.2. Four others were around 16. The others were 15ish. He was worried the 16s would mature.

FYI, my RE considered 15 to potentially be mature when using injectables (because of his experience with IVF patients and retrieving mature eggs from follicles that size). The cycle that I got pregnant with triplets, my biggest follicles measured 18,17,16,15. Another woman who was trying at the same time had an 18,17,15,14 and also conceived triplets. So really, you could have 5+ follicles that are mature.

:agree: with hawkeyegirl.... my first IUI, I had a 22 and two 15's that my RE wouldn't rule out as insignificant...especially because they will grow a little more by the time they are actually released (sometime between trigger and actual ovulation)

Wow! Thanks for the info, ladies! That's both good and scary! Btw, I have been having some twinges and some AF-style cramping off and on since Monday night. Dunno whether that means anything or not. Trying to avoid over-analyzing things. Lol!

It's still early but I know it's hard not to over analyze every symptom! On my 1st IUI, i even googled to see if itching under arms was an early pregnancy sign... talk about over analyze :rofl:
