IUI number: #2
IUI protocol: Letorzole and trigger shot
R/R (rant/rave): This whole process is mentally exhausting. Trying to stay realistically optimistic about the process.
Introduction/DX: I'll be 30 in a few months, DH is 31. TTC #1. DX is unexplained however DH does have low morph
IUI number: #3 (may actually happen I'm early March since I'm still WFAF to start the new cycle)
IUI protocol: letrozole and trigger
R/R (rant/rave): after the disappointing results from Friday I am definitely not going to temp or do OPKs. I had the most beautiful looking chart and it didn't mean squat! So to save myself some anxiety, I'm leaving it all in the hands of the professionals.
@dkv713 sorry about your CP 😢
@herosdaughter totally agree that this is very mentally draining! It's hard not to get your hopes up.
Introduction/DX: hello everyone! Newbie here but so happy to have joined! Our diagnosis is anovulation plus male factor infertility. I am 25 (will be 26 next week) my hubby is 26. This is our third year trying to conceive and about 10 months since we started infertility treatments.
IUI number: 4 (third consecutive one, we had to take a break after our first)
IUI protocol: this month I took Clomid cycle days 3-7, had ultrasound monitoring cd 12 have 5 follicles, 2 mature, 3 with a 30% chance of releasing, uterine lining was 9.45mm, took ovidrel to trigger on cd 12 and had our IUI cd 14 which was this past Sunday February 10th!
R/R (rant/rave): I wish they had more answers and control over sperm levels and counts. I feel like as a women they pump me full of medications and hormones to fix my issues but unfortunately for him, there is nothing they can do.
Good luck everyone! I hope this is our month! I am so happy to have joined this community!
@herosdaughter GL tomorrow!
@dkv713 I'm so sorry about your CP, I hope this month is successful. My IF clinic does acupuncture and I was thinking about trying it.
@inthewoods23 I'm with you about the charting. If we do another IUI next month, I may give myself a break from it too. GL this cycle.
@racingwife26d fx for you!
Introduction/DX: Hi everyone. I've been more off than on here since before Christmas, but I'm trying to be more on and use it as a stress-management mechanism. I'm 36, DH is 48, we've been TTC for 5 years, diagnosed with unexplained infertility in Nov.
IUI number: 2
IUI protocol: Letrozole and Ovidrel. The IUI was yesterday, so now I wait and wait and wait. This is the worst part, I tend to get really irritable and snappy about everything.
R/R (rant/rave): In spite of how much I hate the 2WW, I'm glad that the IUI part is done. The timing of my cycle did not mesh with the rest of life this month and the whole process was extra stressful. If I had known at the beginning of last week that it would be like this, I definitely would have waited till next month. If we don't have a good outcome, I feel like I'm going to more disappointed than I usually am.
