Clomid + Bravelle + Ovidrel + IUI - Help!

Postby RoseMH » Mon Jul 21, 2014 9:56 am

Hi ladies!! I'm looking for opinions, advice, experiences to help me not go crazy in the next few days!

So here is my ttc story so far:
TTC since Jan. 2012.
Jan. 2013 - HSG showed left tube partially blocked.
Jan. 2014 - Decided to start fertility treatments.
Apr. 2014 - Bloodwork done (normal results), DH S/A done (normal results)
May 2014 - 50 mg Clomid - no mature follicles
June 2014 - 100 mg Clomid, one mature follicle at 20 mm + IUI = BFN
July 2014 - 150 mg Clomid, no mature follicles, but ~10 follicles between 11-13 mm. Dr. prescribed Bravelle & Ovidrel today. Injecting bravelle today & follow up ultrasound Thurs to measure follies. If any are mature, trigger shot Thurs & IUI Friday.

So my question: has anyone else has this combination of meds? I know injectibles carry a higher success rate, but how does it differ if it's just one injection of bravelle after clomid? What are the chances any of my follicles reach maturity? I am already freaking out about my u/s Thurs & need to hopefully hear some of your experiences to calm me down a bit =)

Hi there! I'm not sure how one shot would work, but I would think it would do you some good if the doctor recommended it. Maybe that boost is all you need to make them get bigger and mature! Have you gone back for an ultrasound to see if it worked?
TTC since Feb 2012
3 months of Clomid Oct -Dec 13 - BFN
IUI #1 - March 14, with letrazole and trigger shot - BFN
IUI #2 - May 14 with letrazole and trigger shot. Husband had 2% morphology and 7 million post wash.
IUI #3 - July 9 - letrazole, Gonal-F injections, trigger shots and progesterone pills. 4, possible 5 follicles. BFN.

I have low progesterone and husband has 3% morphology. Other than that everything else is normal.

Hello!
I did go back and the ultrasound showed two mature follicles with a third possibility! I was so relieved! So that was last Thursday AM. We triggered Friday PM & did IUI Sunday AM. So now I am 4dpiui & absolutely dying during this TWW. If the IUI isn't successful this time, my doctor was very pleased with my reaction to the Bravelle so she said we would try to same combination for the next cycle if needed. That was very reassuring to know we still have a plan in place!

RoseMH - I know this post is pretty old, but I was just wondering how you are doing? I've been on a similar protocol Clomid 150 CD5-9, Bravelle 150 CD 9-11, and trigger. No luck. Hoping it worked for you.
