You can probably find my IF history in my prior posts, but DH and I are 35, we have a son (20 months old) who we conceived naturally with no issue after a short time TTC. We have been trying for baby #2 for about a year, and have been working with the fertility clinic (due to my age) since Feb. 2017.
We have unexplained secondary infertility – DH’s numbers are fantastic (usually get at least 50 million post wash for IUI – as high as 100+)
We did 3 rounds of Clomid + IUI. I had a chemical pregnancy on the 2nd. The other 2 didn’t work at all.
We then moved on to injectibles (Gonal F and Ovidril). Last cycle I only got 1 follicle and it was misshapen – didn’t work (wasn’t surprised).
This cycle I have 4 follicles on my left that are close to mature – a 19, 16, 15.5 and 14. We are triggering tonight and doing IUI on Saturday. They were aggressive this cycle and I was on a dose of 400 iu of Gonal F – which these last few days after a week on the meds has been tough – I’m extremely exhausted, have a foggy brain and have had headaches.
I would appreciate well wishes, advice and/or good luck sent our way. This process has already been pretty trying, and if this cycle doesn’t work we’ll only have one more cycle before moving on to IVF in the new year (have to wait for new health insurance to kick in). We will do whatever it takes to try but we of course would prefer if this IUI works!
