Very Low Estogen but lots of follicles

Thank you for replying Paul. We've been for a scan today and one of two of the follicles looks like they are starting to collapse and the other big one hasn't moved. so the clinic has abandoned the cycle. We have an appointment with a consultant tomorrow to get some answers and a next step. We're quite peed off to be honest. We agreed to take a higher dose of gonalf which has cost us a lot more than the previous cycles and we haven't even got to the IUI procedure. It's given us a worse response ...

Very Low estrogen but lots of follicles

Thank you for replying Paul. I will definitely ask about it tomorrow. I've googled and of course scared myself about premature ovarian failure, premature menopause and empty follicle syndrome...

Very Low estrogen but lots of follicles

I'm wondering if anyone can help me shed some light on my current situation. I'm on my third iui and have 15 or so follicles. Three are large ish 17, 15, 14 and the rest are 9,10, 11. The clinic wanted to do blood tests this week to know whether to go ahead with the IUI or not. The E2 came back as 315 on Monday, 433 on Wednesday and 260 on Friday (yesterday). They've asked me to continue the GonalF and buserelin until Monday when they will make a final decision. Can anyone tell me what might be ...

Follicle/s not burst

Hi Tracey, I didn't have a period after my first IUI at all. They asked me to leave it for a couple of weeks and then I went back for a scan. Turns out I had a follicle of 19mm on my right ovary! Where that had come from- who knows! but apparently it happens. I had completely skipped my period. It could be that the same thing has happened to you.

Only 1 follicle???

Hi Sarah, It is very frustrating. I would say talk to your doctor next time you see him and voice your concerns. He might then reveal some reason for it that he hasn't explained yet and it will all become clear. there must be a reason why he wants to put you on drugs to produce the follicle rather than let you do it naturally. I hope it isn't just to get money out of you! but ask him.. can you do a natural IUI cycle without drugs? see what he says. Good Luck!

** IUI CHITTER CHATTER MARCH 2009**

I'm really sorry Mrs W. I know how you feel. I was really upset this time round but in a way you're used to it as it's been going on for so long. Sometimes, I can't even imagine myself being pregnant. Try to stay positive and get straight into the next IUI treatment. Good Luck!

Charlie - I'm really sorry. It could be afternoon urine. they do say use the first urine of the day. My clinic asks me to test on day 16 and use the first urine of the day. It might not be over yet. And I sincerely hope it isn't for you (and everyone here of course).

** IUI CHITTER CHATTER MARCH 2009**

Good Luck Mrs W! Hope it goes well! Hedgebaby - most clinics do both medicated and unmedicated. My clinic said that their current stats are 10% success for unmedicated IUI and a 35% chance of success with medicated IUI. You will probably have medicated IUI if you have trouble ovulating naturally. If the issues are mostly with your other half and you ovulate just fine, they might give you an unmedicated cycle first. Depends on your circumstances. My first cycle was medicated as I don't normally o...

** IUI CHITTER CHATTER MARCH 2009**

Good Luck Mrs W - two big follies that sounds great. ( I did ovulate despite being on buserelin so it can happen). but if they were still there today then fingers crossed it will be fine to have the IUI on Wed. what are the bloods looking at? Betty - great to hear your news. Take it easy and good Luck for the 13th march (I test on the 15th march) I will be looking out for you! Tosbourne - haven't heard of that before. You might want to phone your clinic and ask them what exactly they mean. They ...

iui

Hi Tracey! In answer to your email, I don't know how to change the name. I've not done that before. Try pm'ing Eeyore.She will no doubt be able to help. As I said in my email, I was having treatment at Princess Anne hospital Southampton and am now having it at Woking Nuffield with the same consultant. It is all a long waiting game but just keep thinking of the end goal! Speak soon Cxx

** ALL MEMBERS PLEASE! **

I will send a letter too. I'm at the Princess Anne in Southampton and was told that the PCT for this area doesn't fund IUI at all. Can we do a petition for that PCT too? Why do some PCT's in the North offer 3 free IUI's and ours don't. IT'S NOT FAIR!

IUI CHITTER CHATTER (ARCHIVE NOV 08 - FEB 09)

Sbruno - snap! I did the trigger shot tonight too. Good luck! Re the sacs in your uterus- didn't the doctor say that he 'felt' something in there at the last IUI? Maybe his advice of having a look at them would be prudent. Maybe those sacs are what he was feeling and it would be better to look at them and have them removed than worry. (which I know is exactly what I would do!) Either, lots of to you and your DH!
