Hi everyone.....it looks like I will be doing my 2nd IUI in December so I figured if anyone else is in the same boat then lets start chatting to each other. If anyone else is gearing up for IUI please join in and lets get our BFP's together!!!!!
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!
