I am starting Injectables and IUI this cycle and I was just wondering what type of injectables everyone is on? I am trying to decide between Gonal F, Bravelle, and Follistim. Any suggestions?

I didn't have to choose. My RE's drug of choice for IVF was Follistum. The only time he wanted me to choose was when I was to do IUI. But I had tried Clomid before with my OBGYN and had no success with it and so told him I didn't want to to Clomid again.

Well, I'm not sure if the Follistum was case specific considering age, and what my infertility factor was (No ovulation).

Hope this helps

I did IUI and I was on 150ui of Follistim. Clomid never worked for me so they did a combination cylcle with Femara (aka Letrozole) 5mg CD3-7 and then I was on Follistim CD8-21 (towards the end they lowered my dosage to 75ui. We wound up with 2 mature follicle and 6 others that were trailing behind in size with a 50/50 chance to ovulate. We got a BFP our first IUI and it's a singleton. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Good luck!!!
