Infertility

I survived!!

Well first round of injections was done tonight and I survived! I tried to do them myself but I couldn't do it and made my mom do it! I was shaking! The Follisim wasn't bad at all but the Menopur burned!! Thank you to those who gave me some advice on that in my previous post! How long did everybody stim for before trigger and ER? TIA!!

  • This is sad to say, but I hardly remember how long I've stimmed lol. I know at minimum 8 days; they don't like to bring you in too soon.
    Me: 31, PCOS (insulin resistance) TTC since 05/11. DH: 31 Great SA after multivitamins and diet improvements. 6/25/12 IUI #1 cancelled. IVF #1 w/ICSI on 8/23/12 CANCELLED due to ovulation.

FET #2 6/12/13, transferred 2 1A embryos (and there go all my eggs in one basket, literally).HPT on 6/19/13 = BFP! @ 7dp5dt. 6/24/13 Beta 1=659! 6/26/13 Beta 2=1802 6/28/13 Beta 3=2962 P4=14, Will continue progesterone support. U/S on 7/3 revealed TWINS! Premature labor on 10/22. On 10/23/13 Baby Sophie and Baby Gabriel born at 21+5 weeks. They grew wings and flew away from us. May God bless them always. We love you beans!

  • Congrats! They all get easier from here. My first IVF I stimmed 12 days. My second was 11. Then I triggered and ER was 35 hours later. The average number of days is 12, according to my RE. It all depends on your personal response estrogen levelsmm of follie growth. My RE said that once 3 follies are at 18, and others are close to that, she usually triggers.

    Again, congrats! You're on your way!

DH just had surgery on his elbow today and he had to do it. I felt so bad. i think they are stimming me for 9 days on the follistim and Menopur and then at some point there is 4 days of Ganirellix. Good luck!

    Just wanted to say congrats on "getting the show on the road".
    TTC 2 years- Me and DH (28) with (severely) low sperm count- less than 40 total (last 2 SA showed only 5 and 6 sperm each)
    IVF #1: ER 1/23/13- 4 eggs retrieved, 3 eggs fertilized; ET with 1 embryo 1/28/13 2 frosties beta #1 2/5 was 4.8- beta #2 2/7 3.5; BFN
    FET #1- transferred one beautiful 4AA embie. Praying this is my take home baby. Beta 5/7/13- BFFN!!!
    IVF #2: ER 7/17/13: 6R/3F- transferred 1 blast and 1 10 cell embryo 5dt.   Beta hell.  #1 2.5, #2 2.2- BFFFN! REALLY?
    IVF #3: ER 12/1 and only 2 retrieved.  1 fertilized with ICSI.  Was planning on transferring one fresh and one frozen....fresh was only 14 cells at day 5...CANCELLED and devastated due to 5cm blood filled cyst in ovary and blood in uterus.
    IVF #4: ER week of April 20th!  I can't believe we are at this point already.  Trying with antagonist protocol once again...possibly endometrial scratching.  Hoping to get lots of beautiful embryos and a take home baby(ies)
    Prayers welcomed!!!!  PAIF/SAIF welcome
