Hope all is well with you all ladies.

I was quiet busy all these days in work and was little upset that my last cycle of Clomid+Menopur+Ovidrel was unsuccessful. I am new to all these medications. My doctor was telling my body responded very well for these medications so I was on high hope that there is something on store last month but it was not as I expected. I asked what could be the reason & my doctor said its just the matter of chance & he wanted to continue the same medication this month as well. I remember my doctor was telling a follicle size of 21.5. Is it a good size for conceiving and what are the chances of my pregnancy this cycle. ?

I also want to know how long generally will it take to conceive in medications if it responded very well.

My ovaries are making good number of follicles, my tubes are open and no problem with uterus but it is inverted. Could there be someother reason for not conceiving? Please share all your experiences.

Medications:
Clomid 100mg - day 3-7
Menopur 150 - day 9
Ovidrel - day 12

and !!

Obviously everyone responds differently to medicine. I do apologize I can't give you any real answers - but we did IVF - everything looked "perfect" I responded well - and yet .

I don't have any experience with IUI's but some wonderful ladies here do (I've only ever done IVF) maybe they might have some ideas!

Either way - welcome!

Did you do IUI?
Any MF issues?

From what I know your chances are 20% with IUI but it's so confusing to me! Because one would think that it would depend on how many follicles and what meds were used, what the lining was an so on...

We are not doing IUI just a timed intercourse. MF is good so doctor just want to do intercourse.

After mid cycle ultrasound doctor said everything looks good & wanted to me take ovidrel that night. So when he meant everything looks good i assume it includes no.of follicles, lining. what else is stopping me from conceiving ? is it possible to ovulate late after shot?

It's very hard to give a % of chance of conception without knowing a reason why you aren't getting pg. How long have you been ttc? Do you know what your DH s/a was. Do you ovulate regularly?

We have unexplained IF. 5 Iui's didn't work (not saying it won't wotk gor you). but Ivf worked perfectly for us. Best of luck to you.

Hopefully this cycle works but if not ask for follicles size and number! Also lining! Knowledge is power

GL to you!

Lucy, Definitely I would ask this next time. I remember one follicle size of 21.5 and other of 18.I dont remember how many good follicles and other sizes.

Stillwaiting [Sorry I dont know your name] Its been more than a year we are TTC but we had to stop between for my polyp removal. Initially my doctor assumed that polyp was the cause of infertility but later came to know its not. Then they said anovulation is a problem but I don't really believe in that[just because with out any medication, i was just taking Pg test on day 21 and it was showing a very good number]. As you said the cause of my infertility is also still uncertain.

Hi Danny...welcome!

We tried 5 IUIs, some with Clomid,a nd some with injectable meds...and none worked for us

Hopefully your doctor can work out the right combination of meds for you so you can get your BFP!
