Hi Ladies, I'm new here from the Infertility and TTC board.  I just had an u/s today and had 4 mature follies ready for IUI in the morning.  Just curious how many follicles did each of you have when your IUI was successful?

I'm very curious to know your answers and if it was 4-5 if it resulted in multiples.  My first round last month I only produced 1 mature follie at 20mm and resulted in a BFN, but RE switched it up this month with injections and it obviously helped.

  • I had 2 IUI's with 1 follicle that were BFNs. My successful IUI was 4 follicles and it resulted in one healthy baby. Good Luck!!

  • Thanks! @babyexpress and I were thinking about this. I had 5 mature follicles and my RE wanted me to cancel but we're going forward with the iui.
  • I had a definite 1, and another possible 2 (if they grew enough overnight, which I'm not convinced). It literally only takes one!
  • I also want to know this.
  • In a natural cycle, usually, you only have 1 mature follicle. My doctor did not put me on any meds even though i had 2 failed FET's. I felt discouraged by this but i got pregnant on attempt #2. All i had was one dominate follicle. All you need is one! :)

  • I only had one mature follie when I got my BFP from IUI. I know, this is an old post but I just wanted to add.
