Success stories with Follistim & iui??

I'm starting Follistim Pen my next cycle, and am really excited about it!! I'm just looking for some success stories! I'm confident this will be our ticket to getting our BFP! We did clomid for 5 cycles, all bfn. I took this cycle off, and am anxious to get to my next so I can start these injections! So any success stories or advice with Follistim is greatly appreciated! Thanks girls!!

I just started Follistim with this cycle....my first injection was tonight actually.  DH and I have tried for a little over 4 years with no luck.  I was initially on Clomid for almost a year with my Gyne before seeing the RE.  I tried the Clomid/IUI last month, but never got a follie to get bigger then 13.  I talked to the RE about injectables and he agreed to let us start them now instead of waiting since I had been on Clomid prior to seeing him.  Like you, I am very excited to be moving into this next step.  I am also hopeful that the injections will be successful for us.  A friend of mine did Follistim and had twins.....so we'll have to hope for good results also :)

How many cycles did you have to do of Follistim?  I am hoping that the follies grow this month for me with the Follistim.....just keeping our fingers crossed :)

Lets both make it a cycle with two happy endings!: )   well the first time it was our third IUI (but the first one i had no eggs rupture - i have LUFS we discovered.. the second cycle i had two eggs rupture ---- but both of those were with femara only) so we got preg our first follistim cycle! : )    then the first IUI after the first miscarriage i had no eggs rupture : (   but got preg on the second one, which we had three.. then miscarried, UGH!    sooooo we'll see how it goes! GOOD LUCK , keep me updated and we'll be cycle buddies : )

Yay! I love having cycle buddies!!! That's awesome Follistim worked so well for you, and you were blessed both times! I know m/c's are so hard, and I'm so sorry you had to go through that twice. I've been there too, 1 m/c and 1 stillborn. :(  But we are both lucky enough to have even gotten pregnant, and been able to experience it, no matter how far along we were. It will happen for us again, I just know it! :) I've been feeling like af is going to show now since yesterday, just come on already!! LOL My temps dropped wayyy down yesterday, and were still down today, so I know she's trying to get here for me! I agree, let's make this cycle end with 2 happy endings!! :) Good luck to you too, cycle buddy!!!!!
