Pregnant after IF

looking for Menopur success stories

Starting Menopur injections next weekend.  This is our first round, and I am doing 1 vial per day for 5 days.  Anyone have any insight?  How did you respond to 1 vial, how many days did you stim, etc?


Me: 30, Dx Unexplained/hypothalamic amenorrhea
DH: 31, normal!
April/May 2011: Menopur + Ovidrel +TI = BFN
Oct 2011: Menopur + Hcg +IUI = BFP!
Beta #1 (13dpiui)= 129.7, Beta #2 (15 dpiui)= 305
PAIF/SAIF always welcome!

    I had a better response with menopur than I did with gonal-f. The first time I used menopur I think I stimmed somewhere around 16 days? I am obviously a slow responder, but the second time was quicker since we knew to start me off on a higher dose. Sorry I can't remember exact time frame, but if you are interested you could find those posts in my blog. GL!

    it's that in each life some rain falls but you also get some sun.

    I had no response to Clomid so my RE gave me Femara for 5 days and then Menopur for 6 days. I did 1 vial(75 IU) a day and had 2 follicles the first IUI, 3 the second.

    Same dose as you for my first IVF.  We are expecting twins. Good luck to you!!

    We used the generic form of Menopur, Lepori.  During our very 1st cycle (the 1st one we did 5 years ago to try to conceive our daughter)  my RE started me on 1 dose a day, but I was a seriously slow responder, so she kept increasing it until, by day 14-15 I was mixing 5 doses together.  That cycle didn't work, but we did the 2nd cycle with 5 doses a day and it worked! Our daughter's 4 1/2 years old.

     This time around, even though my RE wasn't sure she wanted us to go with Lepori/Menopur again, we did basically an identical cycle to the one that brought our daughter and now we're expecting twins!

    I took 3 vials for about 16 days to get my BFP. This was my 4th Menopur cycle, but only the 2nd with mature follies, and therefore 2nd IUI also. It took a lot of tweeking to get my body to respond. I'm a plus sized girl, so they said that could be one reason why it took more. I went on BCP for 2 months during the holidays and that also seemed to help.
