    Default Any success with injectables and first IUI?

    Hi everyone, my name is Anna and I'm new to this website. My husband and I have been ttc # 1 for about a year now and with no success we decided to get some help. After running numerous test I found out I have PCOS. Long story short, they have me on 2000 mg of Glumetza daily, 2.5 mg of Femara on CD 4-8, 100iu of Puregon on CD 7-10. They increased my dosage to 200iu on CD 11-14. On CD 15 I was told I have 3 mature follicles all of the same size (which apperantly is great news) and they also gave me a shot of 150iu of Puregon that same day. I was given a trigger shot of Ovidrel yesterday and had my very first IUI this morning. I go for a second IUI tomorrow. I was wondering if any of you ladies have had any luck with injectables and IUI. Any advice, stories or anything else you would like to share would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a billion.

    H ey ladies its good to hear all these positive stories I am new to the site as well.. Me and the DH have been together for 4years with no success was diagnosted with PCOS back in 1998 and despreatly want twins a grl and a boy preferable. Doctor did hsg and found left tube closed and dh has sa done and it showed 5%morphalogy. So we are starting provera 2day and having the tube opened this month as well as starting clomid and met. Next month we will start the injectable drugs and doing our first IUI wanted to know what are our chance of becoming pregnant in the first cycle or 2nd and I heard it was a chance of 30% of having multiples when combing injectables clomid met and IUI is this true?

    I got pregnant on my first cycle of injectables and IUI. We had a miscarriage followed by one BFN cycle, and then another BFP. Our due date is August 18.
    This was really the way to go for us!
    Good luck!

    I got pregnant on my first injectables+IUI cycle. This was after discovering that along with my PCOS (which was a known issue), I also have high FSH which indicates preovarian failure, or less eggs in the ovarian reserve. So I did a cycle on BCP and then did Menopur+Follistim+Ganirelix and then triggered with Ovidrel and did IUI. It was my 4th IUI, but my first cycle on the injectables. And poof, a miracle happened!

    After a few months of Clomid + IUI leading to no success, we got our BFP our very first month trying an injectible.

    The "cocktail" that worked for us: Clomid 150, then GonalF, then Ovidrel, then two back to back IUIs

    Our BFP came from our 2nd cycle of gonalf+lupron+ovidrel +IUI. But remember everyone is different. Good luck!
