HaaaveYouMetTed :  hi! I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility after over a year of trying without a single positive test. I am now 39 weeks with a little boy after my first medicated IUI. The RE had me on 100 mg of Clomid for 3 days, followed by a Gonal-F injection and an Ovidrel trigger. Good luck to you!

HaaaveYouMetTed :  Good luck!! I had a similar situation with the only red flag being my husband’s morphology, but count and everything else looked great. Let me tell you, the washing they do for IUI is amazing. Even with 2% morphology we ended up having an amazing sample (like 99% perfect swimmers) once they got rid of those little dud spermies. My first IUI, I had some weird problem and failed to ovulate. The second one was clomid+gonal f+novarel trigger and it worked! The process was not too bad, and it actually felt exciting to be more active in TTC all month long instead of waiting to ovulate then waiting to see if it worked and waiting and waiting. I hope it works great for you!

HaaaveYouMetTed :  I am so glad you have a plan, and I have good thoughts for you! How is your business with hubby going?….We are good. Baby Adam came three weeks early, so he is 2 weeks old now and I am feeling good after c-section!

HaaaveYouMetTed :  Best of luck! I know you guys have been at it (no pun intended) for a long time, I sadly remember when you had your first loss :(. I am so hopeful the first time is the charm for you! Sending lots of fertile vibes your way….but not TOO fertile…I’m assuming you don’t want quintuplets? 😉

HaaaveYouMetTed :  I would like to hear more about your experience with injection meds.  Is there are reason why they chose injection meds over clomid/femara, or have you already tried those without success?  Fingers crossed 2-3 good follies 😉
