I am trying to stay positive, but am letting my doubts get the best of me again…who has had success with 5 or less eggs retrieved. Last cycle I had 7 and :bfp: but :wings: at 8.5 weeks.
I have 5 right now and am going over my back up plan in my head. Going in I have been so positive this was my bring home baby cycle but only seeing 5 today took the wind out of my wings a little!
My insurance coverage is close to over after this cycle and I am out of pocket til July, so I think if this cycle doesn’t work, I am going to shoot for a cycle back to back using clomid/low dose fsh and iui. I get 5 follies with 375 Follistim and 150 menopur. On 100mg clomid I would get between 3-4. Maybe if I add the follistim about 75IU I can get the same results. Try a couple IUI and then when I can get insurance to cover it again, go back to IVF.
I’m lucky in that I had 25k/10k procedures/meds coverage lifetime limit but my company is keeping the coverage for IVF but changing carriers so I will get it again come July, so trying to be financially smart at the same time…
Anyone have success with 5 or less eggs and or have positive results with iui after ivf? I should state my DH SA is normal and I have had a positive result with clomid/iui with DD but we moved to IVF after 2 clomid cycles as we didn’t want to waste our benefit if there were better chances with ivf.
