How is everyone doing?

I’ve done my 7.5 mg of Femara and two days of Gonal-F 75 iu. I am going in today for a scan. Fingers crossed that they see some good follicle growth! If not, I’ll keep taking injects until I’m where they want me. We are going to move forward with the IUI so long as everything goes well. I had some spotting last night after taking the first day of Gonal-F that I’ll be sure and tell them about today.

Thank you! The scan was okay. I only have one follicle at 10 mm. I am going to continue my injections. I’m a little disappointed that there aren’t 2 or 3, but all it takes is one.

Thank you, girls! I’m a little stressed because they said my estrogen level was at a 20. That is so extremely low! The nurse didn’t seem too worried, but as I continue researching, it’s apparently supposed to be much, much higher. I’ve read of them cancelling cycles and stuff because of it being that low, and that low estrogen can indicate lack of response. I’m so worried!

That sounds stressful. I hope your numbers look better and the eggy keeps growing for you.

Please do not worry about those numbers theu don't mean anything at this point! My clinic never did them they said it was a waste of money and time as it doesn't determine much. The size of the follicle means everything. The follicles grow 1 to 2 mm a day and they speed up towards the end they can grow alot day before and day of ovulation. Stress will only make it harder for that follicle to grow. Relax and believe you are doing all you can. Things to help grow the follicles are heat (not too hot) in the area of the ovaries, massage around the ovaries and drink lots of water. Don't worry you got this x

Thank you so much, girls! I didn’t know about the heat! I will start using a heating pad! Seriously! Red, I know you did injections. What was your experience like? I go in tomorrow for another scan. My doctor has kept me on 75 iu of Gonal now. When I go in tomorrow I will have had 5 days of injections at that point (plus the Femara, but I obviously didn’t respond to that).

It took like 10 days of injections for me to get 2 follicles fully grown so 5 days is early days, the good thing about injections is you just keep taking them until they are mature , it's not Clomid or femera where you take a small amount at the start of the cycle and have to wait til end of the cycle to do anything more. It's much more positive and more likely to get an egg from it.
