IUI number: #1
IUI protocol: Letorzole and trigger shot
R/R (rant/rave): Had my first IUI last Thursday. Trying to remain positive since I have gotten to this point (multiple cyst removals last year) but anxious to find out.
How do you ladies distract yourselves while waiting?
Congrats LJMoon6, so exciting!
I went back to RE today, 3 growing around 10 so far, I will continue with injections and return Thursday, hoping all three continue to grow! IUI hopefully fri/sat.
Introduction/DX: I am 29, my husband is 32. We went straight to a fertility clinic after getting married - he was married 8 years prior, never had kids. Less than 90k count, due to (what we believe) an undescended teste that wasn't fixed until he was over a year old.
IUI number: First time. IUI was on the 19th, hanging out in the tww.
IUI protocol: Letrozole 2.5mg 2x daily on the 3rd day of cycle. Ultrasound. Letrozole for 7 days, 2x daily 2.5mg. Ultrasound. Letrozole for 3 days, 2xdaily at 2.5mg with daily opks. Positive opk Friday the 18th in the evening, IUI on the 19th at 11am.
R/R (rant/rave): Worried that I missed my O window. Had irregular periods all my life, have no clue if I have a long or short surge window. Don't even know if I ovulate regularly. We ordered a trigger shot but was told not to use it since I got a positive opk and almost feel like its a mistake not to use it.
Introduction/DX: I'm 38 and DH is 36, married for going on 10 years and we weren't ever trying to prevent pregnancy and we have been actively for about 4 years. First with the help of OPK and timed intercourse. We finally called and RE last year and were able to get a consult in November.
IUI number: 1
IUI protocol: Provera for 5 days to start my cycle, Letrozole 5 mg cycle days 3-8 then had to restart Letrozole 3 days later because follicles weren't growing enough, Prednisone 5 mg tablet twice per day, baby aspirin, prenatal, Ovidrel trigger shot 01/18 with IUI on 01/19, Endometrin 100 mg insert twice a day starting 3 days after IUI
R/R (rant/rave): I had small follicles at trigger so I am worried that they were not ready. I expressed my concerns to my DH but he thinks that since the RE did the procedure that there is nothing to worry about.
Introduction/DX: DH and I are both 33 and TTC for 2 years (1 year on our own, 1 year with RE). Unexplained infertility
IUI number: 6 (last one before moving on to IVF!)
IUI protocol: letrozole days 3-7, then injectibles
R/R (rant/rave): Just had my appointment today. I had one good size follicle on the right and the results of my bloodwork showed I'm surging, so IUI will be tomorrow! Trying to remain hopeful, but a little bummed that I only had 1 follicle this time (previous cycles all had 2). Either way we are just ready to get this last IUI cycle over with and move on to IVF!
Hi, I'm now in the Jan group.
Intro: I'm 43, SO is 46. Diagnosed with DOR (AMH = .25)
IUI number: 2 (even though I was in the Nov. and Dec. group)
IUI protocol: letrozole days 3-7 (7.5 mg/dy0, Follistim 8-10 (300, 150, 150);
R/R (rant/rave): I'm saying this is #2, since Dec. didn't happen at all (no IUI or TI, as SO got sick). I think after this we're taking a break. My SO can't take the stress. I didn't even get to the 3rd day of injections because when I went in for CD 10 u/s they told me I had 3 follicles (23, 20, 18). They told me just to go ahead and trigger that night. And moved my IUI from Wednesday to today. These are the largest follicles I've had yet (and with less medicine), so we'll see what happens.
