Anyone get BFP after IUI with one follicle?
I used femara and follistim this cycle. I am on cycle day 13 and I only have one follicle. The follicle is actually only 16mm today but I will be taking one more shot of follistim tonight and then it should be ready to go. So, I will be having another IUI most likely on Friday. I have done two IUI's already with one follicle and both resulted in BFN. I was really hoping to have more than one follicle this time so I would have a better chance. Has anyone had IUI success with only one follicle?

With my DD1, I did clomid and IUI...on the 3rd cycle (with IUI...I had 3 without any monitoring before that) I had only 1 follicle and it worked! Good luck!

I also had 3 IUIs with only one follicle for each. My first 2 were bfn's and I wasn't hopeful for my third which would have been my last due to money and instead I got my son. Good luck!!

Thanks so much! I was just really needing to hear that it could work. I really want to go into this one with a positive attitude.

All it takes is one! I know that having multiple follicles increases your chances, but there's no reason to believe you can't get pregnant with one follicle. That's what most "normal" women have every cycle they get pregnant.

Ha! I think I posted this same question about 17 weeks ago! I would have liked more than one folly also, but one did the trick for me. Hope this is your big cycle!!!Jill (35), DH (32), married 1/04

I did an IUI with one follicle, I want to say it was 17 or 18mm, I cannot remember exactly? But we got the BFP. We did do a trigger shot the day before the first IUI and I started progesterone the day after the 2nd IUI.Me (30) & DH (27)

Did gonal-f, had only 1 follie, a 19mm on CD10, stimmed for one more night on CD10, ovidrel on CD11 and back2back IUI on CD12 & 13, started progesterone supps on CD14 and BFP 10 days later
Was somewhat disappointed and didnt think it would work but I guess its true that you only need one.. GL and baby dust

I got pregnant with one follicle (27 mm) and we didn't have an IUI! It was on our first cycle of Clomid and the trigger shot and we just had plain ol' sex! GL!
