Hi, I'm 40 yrs old. This is my first attempt at and IUI with Follistim. I've had IUI's before with Clomid and each time was pretty much the same...take Clomid for 5 days, Injection of Ovidrel and on day 14 from my first day of my period, IUI.
This time with the Follistim, I did injections for 7 days and now tonight I am to take the Ovidrel and IUI on Friday. This will only be the 10th day from my period. I'm just worried that it's too soon. My follicals measured 15, 17 and 20 with my endroemtromin at 12.
Does anyone on here have any experiance with this Follistim injections? I see a lot of people have done the Clomid. I got pregnant my first time with Clomid - but 11 1/2 weeks later had a miscarriage.
Thanks for any thoughts you all might have and good luck to all who are on here.
EJB: Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your BFN...but check again...you never know. I did Clomid and got pregnant the first try (ended in a miscarriage). I tried it 3 more times...and then moved on to Follistim Shots...followed with the Ovidrel and an IUI. If you start the Clomid...good luck to you. I don't know yet if I'm gonna continue this month with another round of shots. I still need to go home and cry my eyes out first...then I'll stop feeling sorry for myself and get back on track. That's what has happend the past few times.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and that when you test again it comes out with a BFP! Good luck!!!!

I had Puregon injection in my first IUI, and no medecines for the later 2 IUIs.

Be optimistic! I wish you all the best luck.
