Sorry about your .

Thanks for starting this thread! I am back at it for December too. I'll be your buddy!

I am currently in cycle day 26. So if my next cycle starts in time, I will probably be doing my IUI around the 1st of December.

Mrs. T I will probably be doing femara, my doctor wants me to try injectables though, but i have a calender year insurance, and i am sure they will charge me for my deductables if i use injectables and thn i will have to pay them again from jan! So its a lil trickey I will start injectables from January If needed! Fx'ed for you too!!

We do not have any MFI, i hope IUI would still work! I have heard IUIs are a better option for MFI.

I had one success with Femara but sadly I miscarried.

The second IUI was not successful but I thought what are the odds two in a row would work? Also I had the flu when I did that one and couldn't stop coughing for a few days so I thought that was pretty bad for implantation. Then about a week after the IUI I fell down the stairs! So not shocked that one didn't work.

Now I am on to my third (hopefully final) IUI. Even though Femara worked for us before, I don't want to do this anymore so I thought injectables would be like bringing out the big guns since I only produced one follicle on each IUI in the past. I'm dealing with fewer sperm than most so hopefully if I produce more eggs with injectables I will be giving them more targets.

More follicles are definitely a plus for you, I have read so many IUI success stories with MFI, hope this is it for you! A/c to my doctor IUI with injectables has higher success rates!

And sorry about BFN glad you are moving to injectbles, I wonder whar if i use injectables and produce many follicles so they would have to switch to IVF! hows your dh's counts now? Is he getting any treatments?

I have basically unexplained secondary infertility, i did ovulate max of 4 eggs with clomid n femara cycle but NO bfp! DS was conceived on the first cycle of clomid, but this time i had NO luck what so ever, and i never produced EWCM with 5 clomid cycles! So hopefylly femara will do the trick!

Yeah I hope Femara works out for you. I never tried Clomid but I keep reading story after story that Clomid thins lots of women's linings which makes implantation next to impossible but that Femara doesn't do that. I read eating the core of a pineapple for 5 days (1 core split into 5 - one piece for each day) following the IUI can help with implantation. Although the cycle that worked for me I ate it leading up to the IUI rather than after.

My husbands counts are low. I think the most he's had on an analysis is 11 million and that's not washed. Washed is much lower. He sees a urologist for check ups but never has been offered any treatment. I don't think they can do much for a man's sperm count unless it is caused by a blockage or something they can correct but he doesn't have anything like that. I just bought him some stuff from the health food store though.

hey ladies welcome....so happy that we are here together!!!!!!

mrst - sorry for the bfn and the loss...that is awesome you will back at it very soon! I did injectables for my first IUI in combination with femara...I developed 3 beauties but alas...still bfn!

MissyMaddy - why do they have you on Birth Control pills? usually you dont develop more than 3 or 4 follies with injectables..I developed 3. I have seen rare instances where they did convert to IVF because of the number of follies but if you do it how I did it and combine it with femara the chances of that are slim. I did femara cd 3-7 and Gonal -f cd8-10, triggered on cd11 and had my iui on cd 12 and 13. Like I said I had 3 beauties but it still didnt work. I dont have MFI and I am really hopign this works in Decemeber. If it doesnt then I am on to IVF!
