So I posted asking about menopur(shots) but nobody answered me.

My 3rd IUI & 4th round of clomid failed & now it is on to menopur this cycle. Where do I do the shots(leg) do they hurt, how often do you get bloodwork & ultrasounds done. Is there more luck with this? It is going to cost me a lot. What is the chances of muliples? I am working with one tube.


Anybody I go in tomarrow & I a nervous & do know much about this. THe Dr. was short on the phone.

tomanygirls- I was never on menopur. I did my Follistim shots in my belly and they didn't hurt at all (just a little pinch). Not sure about the BW and U/S or the risk of multiples.

Laci- Good luck!!! I really hope this is it for you!!

well, i guess i'm joining in.

i've got my follistim and another one i can't remember the name of (it's only one shot) so now we're waiting on my period to get things rolling.

i'm really nervous about screwing this all up. i have to reread the paperwork. i have to call & go in on CD1. they consider CD1 any spotting, not waiting for a flow.


tomanygirls - for me, it's bloodwork and U/S every day from CD3 to whenever they tell you to stop, then you take a final shot, and then you have the IUI within 36 hours. make sure your doctor answers all your questions once you get them in person. i had a little mini class on how to do it all and was given a few website references that also offer instructions and FAQ's.

Laci good luck

I have noticed a few people have had BFP after doing more than 3 IUIs. My doctor told me the chance of getting pregnant after 3 failed IUIs is very great so he suggested IVF. He said there is documented evidence but DH wants to try one more round before IVF. (Bless his heart, he's not the one taking the meds.)

I wonder if I will ovulate on my own this month. We are taking this cycle off to do a hysteroscopy so I guess it wouldnt hurt to try. Wouldn't that be funny if my body decided to ovulate on its own and I got pregnant

TTC#1 Since March 2008, PCOS and possible T-shaped uterus, divorced DH after 4 IUIs, hysteroscopy and laparoscopy, Currently with DB and bonus mom to his 3 children and our dogs Dexter and Morgan  grouphug.gifdog2.gif. Four more rounds of Clomid and IUI starting in December 2012 after trying naturally since June...

Depending on your reason for needing them, the injectibles can have more success.

I conceived my first son with menopur. I'm now in the middle of a another stimulation cycle.

The risk of multiples depends on whether or not you are going for an IUI or IVF cycle. The repeated u/s are to ensure that you are low risk if its an IUI cycle.

Zevy- I have PCOS & only one tube. I do not ovulate on my own or mature eggs.


Well I have to wait a month because the clomid last month caused tomany cysts. But next month we get to start the menopur. I am so bummed to have to wait. I read in the papers they gave me it is a 20% chance of multiples but with one tube I am guessing it is less.

We ordered our donor sperm yesterday! WHAT A WEIRD PHONE CALL. I feel like I just ordered my future children. Coincidentally, it was the 5 year anniversary from the day we started dating... who knew that we'd be ordering sperm when we hit 5 years??

Now I'm just waiting for my period... then we can get this show on the road!

oh my. things aren't going quite as smooth as i'd hoped. we're all set and ready to go, and then.... DH will be required to go to the DR's office to give a sample two days in a row. they do the semen collection and insemenations from 7 am to 8 am. he needs to be at work for 6:30 am....

the only option we have is having him go down there on a weekend and having it frozen. this is not covered by insurance. the first day freeze is $240 and the 2nd day freeze is $120.

i ask about collecting it at home and having me keep it in my pants, but they won't accept that. apparently he's got to sign a consent form before they will use it.

I had cysts this last cycle so we didn't do anything and thus I didn't read or post much. Today is actually my day 1 so I should be under waiting to O.

I actually had an ultrasound to day to verify that I am cyst-free. We're starting injectibles (Menopur) this month and I don't really know what to expect in terms of side effects. I guess we'll see...

Mom to William 5/2013! Finally have a kid after our second IVF and more than 5 years of TTC.

I'm here too, but don't really have much to say right now. Really no one wants to hear (see) me whine about self-administered injections all that much (although that doesn't save my DH). I really hope the Menopur works 'cause I don't want to have to keep doing the shots thing.
