Saying Hi (losses and child mentioned)

I’ve commented on a few of the boards throughout the infertility community but I don’t think I’ve officially introduced myself here. 

My husband and I were diagnosed with unexplained/slight male-factor infertility in 2015 following a year and a half of actively trying and one miscarriage. I had uterine polyps removed and got pregnant on my own the cycle before I was supposed to do my first IUI. That pregnancy resulted in my now 2yo son. 

We started trying again in January of 2017 and I couldn’t believe it when I got pregnant almost right away in April. But I had another miscarriage and no pregnancies since. We went back to my RE and found out I had more polyps, which I had removed again. 

Since then I’ve had three IUIs using Follistim and a trigger shot, followed by progesterone suppositories, but no success despite multiple follicles from me and great numbers from my husband every time. 

We just started IUI cycle #4 and it’s the first time I haven’t had to delay due to cysts, which I’m really excited about. 

Wishing everyone luck on this journey!

Re: Saying Hi (losses and child mentioned)

  • Congratulations on your little one. Sorry you have to be here. Hope all goes well for you guys. Sending only the best of wishes. 

    I am new to this form so I will introduce myself. Kinda. 

    I am 26 years old. Have pcos. Started ttc at 22 years old. Went to a specialist and started iui 
    Second try was successfully (who knew how blessed we are) this was with 13 injections of menopur 50iu. 

    So fast forward to now. We have tried iui again 2 times. But my resistance to hormones is worse. (I need 24-30 injection to start making a folical)

    My last cycle ending in a "chemical pregnancy" (hate the term because it feels like a loss to us)
    This was with femzole 5mg for 5 days while taking, menopur 75iu and puregon 50iu. They also had to trigger. My poor tummy and emotions after this cycle. 
    The miscarriage left me with 2 large corpus luteum cyst so if these are gone when AF arrives we will try IVF as the doctor has said iui is not for us. Thankfully we can afford 1 try. But that's all. 
    So I came to this form looking for advice from someone who had the same/similar. 

    I am not sure why I need so many hormones now... I am also so afraid I don't get any eggies or they are all poor quality... But I know I would regret it more if we didn't try.
