I saw my doc this morning and he still recommend trying injectables, but is ok with me sticking with clomid for another few cycles. I might try clomid + timed intercourse next if this cycle doesnt work out.. This is what worked three years ago for me.
It was negative

Thank you Calinina. I'm trying to be as positive as possible, but I get so anxious and depressed around the end of the cycle. I spent the last week of my life googling symptoms every chance I can.

Please keep me posted on how your monitoring appointment goes tomorrow! I hope femara brings you good results!!

I totally understand Sassy, we always get our hopes built up around the end of our cycle, hoping to see that BFP. Hang in there!
Well I had my u/s today, and unfortunately only have 1 follicle, measuring at 19.5mm. With clomid I always had multiple follicles . But I found out that with clomid my lining was only 4.7mm, which is too thin, I'm surprised she didn't tell me that last time. This time with femara my lining is 9.4, which is great. So hoping this cycle works out! I go in for my iui on Thursday.

One is all you need. I'm pretty sure my doctor said that femara produces higher quality follicles.

That's strange that your doc never mentioned your thin lining. Even when I'm on femara mine is usually around 5 on day 10. They give me a seven day course of estrace to fix that. It usually works in 1-2 days.

Do you have to go in for monitoring again before Thursday? Are they going to trigger you?

My clinic does excessive monitoring.. Daily after follicles are 1.6, until lh surges. I started ignoring them and only going on day 10, 12 (at which point I usually surge, or they would trigger).

Tomorrow is 14dpiui for me. I will test in the morning before going in for my beta. I'm not optimistic. Just planning for my next day 3.. I hope it falls on the weekend..

Yea I thought it was strange that my doctor never mentioned my thin lining, but oh well, now I know to always ask .
I was told to trigger tonight, my husband does it for me and usually my RN friend helps us but I think my husband will be able to do it himself tonight . I'll go in for the IUI Thursday.
I hope you get your BFP tomorrow!!

Hi ladies, mind if I join you here? Dh and I met with re today. He is going to do complete bloods, ultrasound of my ovaries, and a sonohystogram? To check my tubes, sa for dh, and recommended we do Iui with femara.
I have taken femara unmonitored before, with no luck.. I ovulate, but no bfp...
We will be doing 5mg, trigger shot and Iui... Our insurance only covers diagnostic testing, but no treatment.. I was utterly blown away when I asked what the Iui would cost us.... Only $400.00 I was expecting $2-3000.... I don't know if that is a good price, but the facility is independent from the hospital, so they charge less.. Hoping for a bfp this month! We have been trying for almost 2 years..

Hi Miskas, welcome . Of course you can join us.
Sounds like you're doing all the preliminary labs and tests, which is needed to make sure you and dh are healthy. So it sounds like right now you haven't been diagnosed with anything, right? Me and dh did all the tests and he his morphology is 5.4%, which is on the border of optimal. I had some cysts and polyps that were seen in my HSG test & got that removed last year. So right now we're diagnosed w/unexplained infertility hoping for the best with femara right now . We've been trying for 2.5 years now, so I feel your pain!
Yes, IUIs aren't that expensive, thank God, but everything adds up.

When did you start taking femara?

Hopefully we get our BFPs soon

I got my negative beta result. Time to start all over again..

I'm torn between trying clomid+timed vs injectables+iui next. Part of me is wondering whether iuis are ridden with experimental error... Did they overheat or under heat the sample? Did they perform the iui correctly?
