Discussions that mention follistim

Infertility board

Robin, welcome to the board.:) Glad you could join us but sorry for your situation. I know IF sucks. The most common aconyms and their meaning can be found on one of the threads on top of the board, there's a whole list of them. The gals (and sometimes guys) on this board are so sweet and always so supportive. I cannot imagine going thru this IF jouney without them.

I'm in the same situation as you, sort of. There's nothing wrong with either DH nor I and we've been ttc for 4 years now. This is our third and final IUI with injections. I'm not familiar with Bravelle or Ganirelix, I'm currently using Follistim. There is praobably someone on this board who may be more familiar with those meds. Sorry I can't offer more help but I wanted to welcome you.

Let us know how you're doing with the injections.
i didn't take the same injectables as you are for my iui cycle, but i had the same crampy feeling as you describe. (i used follistim and ovidrel.) my RE and nurse told me that these are common side effects. in case they get worse, you may want to ask your doctor.

i know that each time the cycle didn't work, i, too, would wonder, what went wroing this time.

hope you feel better.
