Trouble TTC

Advice needed re abandoned cycle

Hi everyone, had some disappointing news today- after taking gonadotropin injections for two weeks and nothing, I've all of a sudden (over 4 days) got 3 follicles. One at 22, & two at 14.5 so they've advised that we abandon the cycle.
Just wondering if anyone else has been in this position and what they did....
the reason I ask is that a friend was also in this position and continued to actively try despite having three eggs and now has a gorgeous 6yr old!

  • *BFP mentioned*

    I had 3 definite mature and a 4th that was likely to mature due to trigger on my successful cycle. I'm currently 18 weeks with 1 bean. Based on my high HCG levels, I may have initially had a twin that didn't make it and absorbed, but we'll never know since we never saw a second sac on my ultrasound.

    I don't understand canceling for 1 definite and 2 possible mature. I also don't know why your RE would put you on gonadotropin injections if 3 eggs worries him/her. I definitely say go for it!
    Married to DH 10/6/12
    TTC since 5/14
    Unexplained with (controlled) hypothyroidism and suspected ovulatory dysfunction (but, I do ovulate on my own)
    Clomid 50 mg 3/15 (unmonitored) - BFN
    Clomid 50 mg + metformin 4/15 (unmonitored) - BFN 
    First RE appt. 5/15; Natural cycle 5/15 monitored with 2 mature follicles and Pregnyl Trigger (full dose) + prometrium - BFN
    6/15 HSG - clear tubes & normal uterus; great PCT test results
    TI - 100 mg Clomid + prometrium (AM & PM) + vaginal estrace (AM & PM) 6-7/15 (monitored) --> no additional response and thinned lining - BFN
    TI - Injectables (follistim + Gonal-F, Ganirelix, & 1/2 dose Pregnyl) + prometrium (AM & PM) 9/15 --> 3-7 mature follicles (3 definites and 4+ that could have matured due to trigger) @ O -->BFN + 5 large cysts
    BC for 2 weeks due to cysts
    TI - Injectables (Gonal-F, Ganirelix & full dose Pregnyl) + prometrium (AM & PM) 10/15 --> 1 mature follicle --> BFN 
    TI - Last attempt at injectables (Gonal-F, Ganirelix & 1/2 dose Pregnyl) + crinone (AM only) + vaginal estrace (AM & PM) 11/15 --> 3-4 mature follicles --> BFP!! 11/27/15 @ 13dpo (shockingly, actually waited until then to test)

    Beta #1 @ 16dpo (11/30/15) = 1,075
    Beta #2 @ 19dpo (12/3/15) = 3,150
    One baby: Saw heartbeat @ 5w5d (114 bpm; baby measuring 2.3mm)

    I'm in the UK & the hospitals policy is "one at a time". Apparently there's a 10% chance of a multiple.
    It sounds like I'm the same as you with 3 likely mature follicles and one that was around 10 this morning. I also seem to produce eggs very rapidly late on. In my rounds of clomid, nothing happened until very late and then there was a huge follicle within a couple of days.
    I suppose my concern is that if we continue to actively try and I don't ovulate for another few days (as I won't be triggering) then I could actually have 4 or 5 mature follicles. Then on the other hand, only one could take and this might be our chance- it's just such an unknown and as I was advised against it, I'm not sure it would be "sensible", but then infertility doesn't make you sensible!! Haha :)
