Hi everyone! Starting TTC#2 and I am so excited. I have PCOS so I need help with ovulating. I had my son Brendan 12/7/10 and we conceived him on the first injectable cycle. We did Gonal-F with IUI and it worked the first time. I dont respond to Clomid so we are going to do the same plan and hope it works the first time again! Started Provera tonight to induce my period and will probably start Gonal-F end of next week or the weekend

Hi there! We did a cycle with Gonal-F and he gave me a very low dose because of my age and because I need help with ovulation not due to unexplained infertility so we did it for about a week and a half then he raised my dose and about a week in in I had a bunch of follicles. We decided to stop because I had been on the shots for awhile and he was worried about the quality of eggs and also the probability of multiples at that point. got my period and then we did 75mg for 5 days and I produced one perfect sized follicle and a few smaller ones. Got my first IUI the afternoon after triggering with Ovidrel and then the next morning another IUI.

What did you do for this cycle?

Welcome! Hope you get your BFP right away again! Since you know what worked before, I'm glad you can go back to it to make it happen. Good luck!
