First DIUI

(7 posts)(4 voices)
  1. I am on CD 6 of my first diui. I am taking 150 of follistim. I just started feeling really excited that this may work. I hate to get my hopes up because I have been let down so many times in the past. But I have read so many success stories of IUI's being done with injectables having a really good chance right from the start! I would love to hear other's success stories to keep my hopes going strong

  2. I just wanted you to know that I am blowing baby dust your way....

    hey there, just wanted to wish you good luck!
    in total i did 7 DIUIs. i had to use donor sperm as i have a wife and not a husband, but we never expected to have to do 7 IUIs.

    the first 4 IUIs i was only on clomid and i only had 1-2 follicles each cycle. but on my 3 injectible cycles,i always had 2-3 follicles which was supposed to increase my chances for conception. my issue was pcos and late ovulation, so i needed to clomid and then the injectibles to grow follicles properly so i would ovulate on time..however, i responded well to the meds and always ovulated early!
    my successful IUI (#7) i did injectibles, but i also took a suppression medication. i had 2 follicles and i conceived a singleton(boy-5 & 1/2 months old now!)

    i was happy overall with the injectibles and i wish you luck with your IUI!!!

  4. Thank you both! I went in for my first u/s this morning since I started the meds and I am already going to trigger tonight. I am only on cd 7 but I have a lead follie on each side and a few coming up behind them and the RE is worried about multiples because of my age (30) and he doesn't want them to catch up....I'll let you know how it goes!!!

  5. beiker---that is such exciting news! I'll be praying all goes well
    Please keep us posted on everything!!

  6. Lisa---Just checking in and wanting to send lots of baby dust your way! I'm eager to hear how things are going.

    DH and I went for our consult with Cornell this past week and we are all set to proceed with IVF/ICSI/mTESE w/ DS back-up in September

  7. Hi everyone...well we went ahead with the IUI on Saturday morning and another one this morning. Basically we had one at 11 hrs past the trigger and one 36 hours past. I had two follies at 17 and two at 15. The first IUI the total sperm count was 12 million and the RE said that was good but this morning there was only 6 million after it was prepared so I wasn't too happy with that but I guess we just need one good sperm and one good egg! I go for a beta on the 21st, so I'll keep you all updated. The good thing is that if it didn't work this cycle I am already close to my next one!

    ucenik - I hope that September gets here fast for you and that it all works out. It's great that you will have ds as a backup in case!

    Tootsie and tenmya21 - Thanks
