I have a reevaluation appointment with my RE next Wednesday because our last IUI has failed. My nurse mentioned that Femara would be next, but if I wanted injectables I should definitely speak up about it… I’d like to try Femara + TI for 1-2 rounds, but I’d also like to do 1-2 Femara/Follistim/IUIs. I don’t feel comfortable doing a straight injectables cycle because our RE is over 3 hours away (unfortunately the closest too) and that will entail much more monitoring/trips.
It’s my understanding that a Femara/Follistim cycle starts off with the CD 3 u/s, then start Femara for 5 days, then 3-5 doses of Follistim, and then around CD 10-12 come in for monitoring (u/s and b/w) then hopefully trigger and IUI 24-48 hours later. Does that sound about right? I’d like to make minimal trips, but I’ll of course do what needs to be done! Also, what should I expect the dosage of the Follistim to be?
