BFN. First IUI is officially a failure. This is worse than getting a neg. from a regular cycle. It's hard to understand why with 6 follicles and great sperm numbers and quality it didn't work.

Going out for sushi and wine tonight.

Daisy: I'm so sorry. It truly doesn't make sense. What seems to feel worse is asking the question "what can I do next time around that will make a difference?" I have asked myself that question a million times. Sushi........yum:

I'm sorry Daisy. You're right, it's so much worse than a POAS BFN. And the answer to "what can I do" is "nothing at all, just try again." It's hard because you feel like you're just doing the same thing over and over with no results, and it's hard to understand why it would fail 3 times in a row and then suddenly succeed. But it sometimes does... and the good thing about IUI is that there is still a bigger gun if you want to use it.

Question regarding Metformin: Do the side effects start right away? I started taking a partial dose last night and I already am having loose stools. I'm worried if this is happening with the partial dose, then what is going to happen when I am on the full dose?

gumby- I don't take metformin, but can tell you side effects from any drug can start immediatly. There is my nurse 2 cents.

I'm really sorry. It doesn't make sense.

The thing I have to remember is that, as songbird says, it can not work and not work, and then suddenly succeed. I need to try to hold onto that right now, as this feels pretty yucky.

DaisyMae08--I am so sorry. Its so hard to understand why these things happen. Please keep your hope for next cycle. Maybe your body is getting ready.

Daisy - sorry for your bfn.


AAM BFN for me @ 13dpo. feel like AF is going to show any minute. I am considering taking a few months off. Not sure yet, have 3 days past AF to decide. Kinda wish AF would hurry up cause I really want to take a fluid pill-I am so swollen!

CD 1 for me. Looks like we have a lot of aligned cycles here. Just picked up my follistim and ovidril and I start injections Monday. : I'm both cold and nervous and this covers both. Snowed here briefly this morning. Oh I am not in CA any more (Michigan). I'm retesting my FSH on Monday. Most of you know this but I did it in Sept. and got a suspect read that, if true, said the # doubled in less than a yr. The cycle was messed up when I did it, so we are suspending belief as that is awful and almost impossible. Anyway, wish me luck for a better #. Last yr it was only 6. In positive news though, we did a baseline u/s on Fri. and my Clomid cysts have finally resolved and my antral follicle count is still good. I had 6 follies on one side, 8 on the other. Even if the FSH has raised, this is good. Also, DH gets a strict morph Kruger SA on Wed. So lots of moving forward, new rounds of testing and so forth. Must keep going.

Poetgirl--gl on the injectables. I am rooting for you. Looks like things are moving quickly for you. I think this new RE is doing better for you. Is your protocol aggressive. Sorry about CD1. At least its a new start and you can move on with this new cycle of injects. This might be all you need to get things moving.

I had side effects w/in a couple of days of taking the first Met dose. Everytime I increased my dose I would sorta "revisit" side effects for a week or so and then I adjusted to my new dose. I now take 1000mg twice a day and it doesn't really phase me most of the time (if I eat something really greasy it will make for a volatile situation sometimes!) also, i have to be sure to take it w/ food or eat very soon after taking the medication. it isn't supposed to lower your blood sugar (the medications isn't intended for that even if you have diabetes) but I swear if I take it and don't eat- I feel like I could pass out!! good luck!!

I'm on CD 30 with no signs of AF, but it must be on its way. I'm ready to start the next cycle already. Bring on the Clomid moodiness!

Daisy- Ae you on progesterone?
post #96 of 275
I'm not taking progesterone, but have been wondering if maybe I should be.
post #97 of 275
It seems that your luteal phase is long enough without progesterone supplement. The clomid may be lengthening your luteal phase. Next time, have a progestrone drawn 5-7 days post o. This can tell you if you need progesterone supps.

Folie study was done, 2 large follies, 1 smaller one. trigger tonight. Waiting for estrodial results
