Thread: IUI / Clomid / HCG Trigger

  1. #1

    Default IUI / Clomid / HCG Trigger

    Hi ladies, it has been a while since I was on here. DH and I have spent the last two years getting healthy. I have lost 200 lbs and DH lost 165 lbs. We found an amazing RE office after leaving an office we didn't trust. So our plan is to do 3 IUI's and if that doesn't take, then one IVF.

    So I went in to RE office yesterday CD 11 and they found three strong follicles...1- 20mm, 1- 19 mm, and 1- 17 mm. All on my left side. I took 50 mg clomid and I trigger tonight. I have not got my +opk yet, but I always get it by this evening. The dr is trying to get me in right before I ovulate to deliver the sperm right up to the Fallopian tube.

    I am just wondering if anyone can give me any positive thoughts. I feel like I have read so much about ladies who were unsuccessful with IUI. Oh also, DH did come back with low morphology 2.5% on last SA. Thanks ladies!!

    My babies are all IUI. The triplets I got thanks to 100mg Clomid + a trigger (my 3rd IUI on Clomid) and my youngest is from an IUI on injectable meds + trigger.
    It does happen!
    Good luck!

    Thanks ladies!!! How many IUI's did it take you to find success? Also did any of you have sperm issues? Sorry, I am just excited and nervous at the same time.

    Thanks!!!
    I had 2 IUI's while trying to conceive our son. The second one worked. This recent BFP was our first IUI while trying for #2. We used clomid, menopur, trigger and progesterone.

    I got pregnant for the first time on my 6th IUI. I will say the first 5 were trial and error. It wasn't until the 6th that I was having an ultrasound and trigger shot to make sure the IUI was timed perfectly. VERY important...I will never again trust OPKs after wasting so much time going off them and having it not work out.

    My second pregnancy was from my 2nd IUI, with 1 skipped cycle in between due to lack of response.

    We are trying again now, well 6 months ago. That IUI failed and we took until June off to remodel our new house and get moved before trying again. I am hoping we will have luck on our next IUI.

    We have severe MF IF, we went the donor route.

    Thanks trip mom! I wish you luck with your next IUI. I don't have insurance so we had to spend $12,000 for three IUIs and one IVF. Fingers crossed. I go in Sunday for IUI. I trigger at 11:30 tonight. Yay!

    Thanks lizamay! Good luck on your journey too. Are you seeing an RE? My follicles should still grow another 2 mm per day. So I should end up with follicles at 24, 23, and 21. Hopefully that is good enough for us. Fingers crossed!

    Man, I have no idea how so many people have insurance. How many follies did you have when you had the triplets?

    Okay ladies, I had so many problems with the trigger shot last night! I could not remember how much solution I needed to mix with the powder and then I couldn't remember how much of the HCG to fill in the needle. So I had to call my nurse at 11:30 pm to get clarification. I ended up having to do two shots to get all of the meds. I really hope that I didn't screw it all up this month.

    I'm sure you're fine. 2 injections won't mess anything up, and if she was able to talk you through it, you should be just fine! Hope you have a great IUI!

    Thanks Kelly! My boobs are killing me! Also, did you spot for a day or two after IUI? I really did not realize that I would do that.

    By the way, DH had 9 million post wash sperm. I am still waiting on the full SA report. Is that good? Has anyone heard of an FSP instead of IUI? They inject the sperm right into the tubes. Thanks!
