Hello everyone, This is my first time posting. I just had my first IUI done after 2 months of failed treatment, and a year of trying on our own. My body finally responded to Bravelle. I’ve had a number of issues myself (low estrogen, thin lining, follicles not growing) but luckily I seem to have found the right recipe. My Hubby, however, has some MF infertility that we’re still dealing with.
Here’s my history:
Cycle 1: Femara 2.5mg CD 5-9. 20+ follicles but nothing matured over 11mm. Uterine lining 3.2. Cancel cycle
Cycle 2: Femara 5mg CD 5-9 plus estrace daily. Same response as month before.
Cycle 3: Bravelle injections (75IU) CD 2-11. Follicles measured 21mm, 16mm and 11mm - trigger shot (HCG) on CD12. IUI on CD 13. Hubby’s SA showed severe agglutination, total motile count 5.2 million, 36% motility. Good morphology.
We also did TI 36 hours before the IUI and the day after the IUI. Hubby said his “sample” didnt look right the day of the IUI - I think he got nervous and didnt like it being in the morning.
Has anyone had success with this type of scenario? I’m concerned we had just the one follicle (although that follicle grew 6mm in 2 days, so it is possible the 16mm grew to maturity in the one day after the HCG shot) and the SA wasnt so good. I’m only 1 DPIUI and I’m not sure how I’m going to make it through the 2WW!
Any support or success stories you could share would be wonderful. Thank you in advance!!
