Were you on Chlomid or Femara? If I were you, I would ask about going on injectables.. such as Menopur or a low dose of Gonal F. The results are so much better. If your doctor is an RE (reproductive endocrinologist), he should have been able to predict when you will ovulate and a 14mm follicle is a little too small to release a mature egg. I guess it is possible you have already ovulated and a blood test would be able to determine if it was a detectable egg or ovulation. Fertility drugs cause cramping, that could explain the discomfort but I think it is too soon to tell what happened. If this is a BFN, your doctor should change your protocol and recommend injectables. Good luck.
I wonder if the 14mm one grew to 18mm and released before that ultrasound and the 15mm one that you saw was the one that had been the smaller of the two on the last sono?
I'm surprised they let you go four days between sonos. Did your Dr. give you an indication of when they wanted to do the IUI or are you scheduled for another sono first?
It definitely would suck if you missed the chance of the IUI even while being monitored.
Have you tried clomid or just the letrozole? I know that some women have a better response on different ones.
Hang in there. I had success with my 4th IUI, even though it unfortunately ended at 6 weeks as an ectopic. It was still successful, and that is what I am holding on to.
I have also had 2 failed IUIs and for my current one was switched to injections (Puregon). The success rate with injections over Clomid is slightly higher so I chose to give that a try. Something to consider.
It's my first ultrasound day of the cycle past day 3 so I don't have follicles yet but my lining level is already much thicker than it usually is at this point.
I ovulate on my own and they don't appear to have any worries about how things went the last 2 times on Clomid, but I've only ever had 1 mature follicle with a secondary one that was 'almost there' or shrank right before the procedure.I know we want lots of follicles to increase the chance of it working, so when I expressed disappointment over that, they remind me "People conceiving naturally release 1 egg... keep trying." But I empathize exactly with how you feel.
Good luck and keep us updated!
Thank you. Yes I was on clonus for 9 months before the letrozole and yes it had been 3 days between the last 2 sonos. I go back Friday for sono to double check. I'm sorry to hear about your ending with ectopic but hang in there. At least you know now that it's possible to conceive..
I meant Clomid and now Letrozole with HCG inj past 2 IUI's...
