Kerry I am going to ask my docs about doing a u/s before the iui to see if it ruptured. That sounds like a good way to time the IUI. Thanks :D ! I have not been told my IUI date yet I just came back from bw/us so I guess it all depends on the size of the follies. How long were you on injections befo...

Kerry, two tries and you hit gold. Wow getting the BFP must have been a dream come true for you and hubby. If my eggs are released on the blocked side the cycle will be canceled. I actually have 3 follies in the left ovary ( blocked) but they are not even considering them because it is blocked :( ! ...

Thanks Kerry that is just what I needed to know. I was wondering what happens post insemination. My mind tends to wander and what goes on? How many times did you do IUI before you got BFP? Did you try any other fertility treatments We opted to go straight to treatments instead of getting my tubes un...

Kerry thank you for your well wishes and CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BFP :D . I spoke with my doc to find out how they determine how much HCG to give and he said they will give 500 units of Ovidril if a woman is obese or has a lot of body fat. I got 250 when I did IVF and I got the same dosage with this...

Cycle buddy and question about HCG Shot.

I started my injections today (150 -follistim). Is anyone interested in cycling together? Also, can anyone let me know what questions I should be asking my doctor during my treatment? Can anyone tell me how much Ovidril or HCG they were given during their treatment. My hubby and I had a failed attem...

IVF Nurse, I don't know why my IVF cycle failed. My doc said they group together and review all failed IVF's, so we are waiting for our results. I too am baffled why my cycle failed and so was my doc. He said my stats were so good they met the criteria of an egg donor. I was on BC's for almost 3 wee...

alittlegrace, I am in a similar position as you. Our IVF cycle was cancelled also. I had 32 follies, 12 eggs, responded really well to the injections. Docs said my stats was just as perfect as a donor. after our egg retrieval the embryologist called the following day to say our eggs were not matured...

New to Insemination

Hello all, I am going to undergo my first attempt of artificial insemination. My husband and I underwent a cycle of IVF that was cancelled. We had a total of 32 follicles and 12 eggs were retrieved, unfortunately the embryologist told us our eggs were not matured. The docs are still trying to figure...

Stay positive Kerry

Thanks Kerry. Its good to know if we decided to do another cycle we have the option of doing it right away. I've been trying to get the whole thing out of my mind. I can't help but think the docs made a mistake. Shouldn't they have known that my eggs were not matured. Anyway, I am going for a follow...

Kim

Bummer a few months to start another cycle. Your right this whole IVF is so much emotionally. But I guess I will have to stay positive and hope for the best next time. RN - before my retrieval i went to the doctor everyday for the last 5 days for bw/us. The closer to your trigger shot you get the mo...

Thanks Jude

Thanks Jude, your response was reassuring. It's good to know that we can start another cycle right away. I was on the stims for 11 days.

Congratulations on your BFP! I'm new to all this, so what is the next step for you.

What is the wait time to start another cycle.

Hello guys, We got bad news today. Out of our 32 follies, we got 12 eggs and none of them fertilized. Doc said my E2 and follicle sizes all were good and they were baffled that none of my eggs were matured after the retrieval. Mature eggs do not fertilize. Has this ever happened to anyone? I'm prett...

Thanks Kerry

I tried Tylenol and it has diminished some of the tenderness. The good thing is my uterus is no longer contracting. But we got bad news today, none of our follies fertilized. Doc said my E2 level and follie size was all good (21 &22 mm's) and they were at a loss why the eggs were not matured. Becaus...

Bad news Kim!

Well we got a call today that did not bear good news! None of our eggs fertilized because they were not mature enough. My E2 levels were high and my follicles were measuring 21, even 22 mm's. The doc said I am one of those rare cases were they have to allow me to go an extra day so my eggs can fully...
