Baseline ultrasound tomorrow.
Either upping clomid dosage or switching to femera.
Sorry to hear the BFN this cycle.
I responded really well to Femera. In fact, that is the cycle I got pregnant. It’s also not so hard on your body. My lining was much better on Femera vs. Clomid.
Good luck. Again, sorry to hear. 😦
Aww I was hoping this was your time! So sorry to hear this one wasn’t it but hopeful that with the changes and the new RE everything will be phenomenal this cycle. Thinking of you both.
Poo. Sucks– I’m sorry.
My lining when I was on Clomid at day 10 ranged from 7-9 mm (lower as the months progressed). This month on injectables my day 10 lining was over 13 mm. It’s enough to convince me that Clomid may have kept me from getting pregnant by making implantation impossible instead of working to help me get pregnant. Just something t o think about. If it was me, I’d push to move on from the Clomid ASAP.
So sad to find this post 😦 I’m so sorry
I’m so sorry, honey….
# May 29th – Ovidrel shot at 5pm [ 1st insem should have been 24 hours after… May 30th @ 5pm or later]
# May 30th – First IUI at 11am (34mil count)
# May 31st – Second IUI at 10am (24mil count) Cervix still open [ 36 hours which is the max was at 3am on May 31st]
A lining of 11mm is good you only need it to be at 8mm.
The first insem was too early and the second was too late. Was the sperm still alive to do anything before the second insem is what I’m curious about???
Are they giving you a written sperm analysis on each vial used?? If the sperm is good then i would say in my opinion your timing was fucked even thought the cervix was still open.
Hope this helps on the next go round:)
I absolutely agree! We did receive an analysis with each vial and counts were 34mil with 60%motile and then 28mil with 48motil.
I too am worried about the timing factor however my new practice isn’t as worried about perfect timing. And I think these inseminations were screwed from the start being over memorial weekend I had no control over scheduling and they just told me when to come in. They had no flexibility at all with scheduling.
I think the first IUI could have been decent timing because I actually had my LH surge at 6am and had an ultrasound that afternoon and still had a nice size egg. We then inseminated the next morning (24hrs from LH surge). So unless the ovidrel impaired my normal surge the first could have been alright…
But that being said, I total felt the timing was off the entire time and I’m not convinced the trigger makes anything better for me.
I would have been more confident had you had more than one follie in the running. That one 22mm wasn’t enough in my opinion to spend all this time and money on. Drugs should give you more targets to throw sperm at. Those lagging follies should have been given more time to get closer to 18mm so you have better odds of somebody getting hit.
The way this unfolded you had just as many follies ripe as you would have without drugs.ONE!
Trigger are still your best bet. It nails down and controls when you can expect to ovulate instead of letting you body do it’s own thing all willy nilly with everyone guessing. Stick with it:)
How is it ethical for fertility clinics to allow holidays to determine their insemination protocol? That is just so wrong.
Thanks Malea – You are absolutely right. I’m completely frustrated with the amount that seems to have been wasted this last cycle. But I guess I’m just hoping it’s the learning curve cycle for my new clinic and now they know my body a little better things will improve.
I did talk with them on Sunday and ask to discuss increasing the meds this cycle to produce additional follicles. So hopefully today will provide answers to some of my frustrations. I’m still concerned that I continue to ovulate earlier each cycle and how that is impairing this process. Also how I had my LH surge before they triggered – because this seems to then complicate things more. Do I then ovulate with my normal LH surge or do I trust in the 36 hour mark?
This whole process is beyond frustrating and honestly I felt it was a little less stressful before all the ultrasounds, trigger shots and crazy increased weekly appointments. I’m at a loss. But you’ve been so helpful and I really appreciate it!
well, fuck. i’m sorry.
im sorry sweety!!! xoxo
😦 So sorry! Have a glass of wine and indulge in some chocolate.
So sorry 😦
Ugh!! That sucks!! Best wishes for a very productive June/July cycle!!
Every “no” is one cycle closer to your “yes”!!!
Shit. Bummer. Suckiness. I’m sorry.
I’m sorry to hear this, lady. All my best thoughts for the next round.
