Round 1 IUI with medication

WE have just started our first round of IUI after successfully conceiving our first son naturally nearly 5 years ago within 6 months of trying. We've been trying for baby number 2 for over 2 years now with no joy, we've been through hycosy and sperm checks and all is well , but still no baby. We've now been trying iui with the use of Menopur injections, had IUI on Tuesday 15th Jan. I've been having strange side effects like you'd get towards the end of you period has anyone else had this? :innocent:

Hi, Louis and welcome to FZ
It is quite common to have some really odd symptoms on the 2WW after any medicated cycle. When is your test day?

Feel free to send me a PM if you have any specific questions about IUI....
Good luck, hun

Does anyone know when I should start doing the menopur injections again. We didn't start until day 5 last round as the clinic messed our appointments about but I think she said we should have started on day 1? Should I class day one as tomorrow considering I've only just got AF? I will call them in the morning but I didn't want to not inject tonight and then they said I should have done?

Are they likely to increase the dose? I was taking 150 every other day last month.

I'm just looking forward now to the next round and trying not to think to much about the negative result.

I hope one of you can help?

Oh babe, im so sorry to hear that it failed. :tear: I was thinking about you earlier as i hadn't heard from you yesterday. How are you feeling? I really was hoping that you would get your BFP. I have sent you a big hug :hugs:

It sounds like you are keen to move straight into the second cycle of IUI. I take my clomid tablets from day 2-6 of my cycle, then i go for a day 5 scan and it is on day five that i do my first menapour, then day 7 and day 9. When you go for your day five scan, i would ask if they want you to continue on the same dosage of menapour. I have one powder to solution because the first time my follicles grew really quickly and they didn't want to overstimulate, but the second time, they were slow to grow and i had to have a fourth menapour to kick start them. I would ring the clinic first thing in the morning to book your scan and discuss your next treatment.

I hope you are feeling okay hun, speak soon xxx

Sorry about your result, Hun
As to when to take you meds again - it would be best to check with your clinic as some clinics will not allow you to go from one cycle straight into the next but make you wait one or 2 AF's between cycles. I did not use menopur but rather Gonal F and I only ever started them on day 5 of my cycle. That said I also took Clomid at the same time which I used to start on day 3...

:flowers:Thanks for all your kind words.

I feel awful today. Can't stop thinking about it. Called the clinic and they said I might not be able to start straight away as the nhs are making cut backs so there's now a waiting list or something. First come first served! They are ringing me back tomorrow to let me know once they have spoken to St. Barts, I'm devastated. That was the only thing I was holding onto that we could try again this month. Don't know what to do with myself. bigcloud

I feel like giving up and not bothering anymore it is so disappointing to go through all this for nothing.

My sister-in -law and brother sent me a huge bouquet of flowers today and I had to send them a text to say thank you because I was too busy crying to talk.

I'm sorry to go on but you're all such good listeners.

thanks again

Hiya hun

I am so so sorry to hear that you may not be able to go straight into your next treatment, did they not say how long the waiting list is? i would ring back and find out. You are paying for it after all and have already brought the drugs for the second cycle. Bloody NHS! i know i bloody work for them, they are always cutting back.
Well try not to be too disheartened at the moment hun, it may still all work out well for you. Hopefully they will say it's fine to go straight into your second cycle. I know it's hard to keep focused when you are filled with such disapointment and sadness, your hormones will be all over the place too which makes it worse. You will start to feel better with time and build yourself up so you are ready for the next step. It's a lot of heartache and i too have thought what am i doing to myself? maybe i should just give it up, but i want a little baby so badly, and if i don't battle on to win this fight, who else will battle for me?

It will happen! just remember good things come to those who wait!

Yes eventually, I spent all day with my phone in my pocket incase I didn't hear it when it was in my bag and they didn't even bother to ring me!

So my DH went up to the clinic after work and it was supposed ot be open till 4pm but they had locked up at 3.45pm so DH went a bit bananas!! :rant:

They tried to tell me that they had spoken to me this morning and told him what they said to me and she just said exactly what she had said to me yesterday! They are so rubbish in there it is unbelievable we have spent so much money already on this and they don't even bother to get our notes out before they speak to us. She actually rang me yesterday and said 'I'm sorry you got a negative result, what treatment did you have again'!!! :hairout

However, we have finally been told we can start again this month, so I am about to do my injection now. Thank god for that I was close to just giving up and letting nature take its course, if it was meant to be it would be. But I just couldn't let my dream of becoming a mummy again, or deny my son a long awaited sibling.

I was trying to convince myself that if I got a cat that perhaps it would help fill that void a little bit, but DH said no way as he doesn't like cats!! and I know it wouldn't replace that longing.

I got my fix today though with my niece who is 7 months, so cute!!

Anyway how is you? Had anymore massage classes?

Chat soon xxxx

clap Oh, im so happy for you hun!
at least you got the result that you wanted in the end, even if you had to pull teeth to get it. Your clinic sounds about as good as mine! they are pretty good at getting back to me the same day but i feel like they only give me half the information i need to know. My Dr is a really miserable man who comes across as a person who doesn't give a care about my problems, im just another patient to him. There are some really lovely nurses though and they are always so kind and supportive, so that makes up for the lousey Dr.
Are you booked in for your next scan? what cycle day are you on?

I have two beautiful cats, one is a pedigree persian chinchilla and is so cute. Everybody loves him. They are my babies, they get spoilt rotten. I brought Alaska a cat collar all the way from Hollywood, it's very glam. Im crazy i know!

I have a one to one massage session tomorrow morning with a mum in her home, the little boy is adorable, and then i have my group session on Friday. I also have to do a session tomorrow at a post natal group, on play and development, so an afternoon of being around mummy's with their little darlings, and me wishing that i was everyone of them, oh well. :headache

Hello

You're going to have a day cuddling little ones , sounds good, that should keep you going for a bit.

I'm only on day 2, I just done the injection it hurt this time, I do another one on Thursday then have a scan on Friday, I'm excited now but not in a rush to get to the 2ww.

Its interesting to hear you have the same problems with your clinic, they just don't seem to understand how emotional the whole process is, perhaps one day one of them will have the same problem and realise how distressing it is.

Take care

Hiya hun

Isn't it funny how the treatment differs from one clinic to another? i wonder why?
I have to inject my menapour on day 5, 7, and 9 day of my cycle. Do you or anyone know why it differs and does it make a difference when you inject i wonder?

Hope you are feeling okay today xxx

My clinic are so unorganised I wouldn't be suprised if I'd been told wrong, the nurse told me I could inject on day 2 or 3 whichever I preferred!

I was talking to someone today who had five IVF treatments and the first one she fell pregnant then miscarried then no more pregnancies! how awful.

She said she found a really good clinic in Colchester so I'm going to look into them as I'm just not happy with mine.

However, I am with them now and really really want this one to work. I had to tell my mum and dad about the negative result yesterday and I did it by text as I couldn't face telling without crying. I think my dad just assumed I would fall pregnant as he doesn't umderstand the treatment, I feel bad for them I know they just want it to happen for me. :angel2:

Oh I wish I'd got to cuddle all those newborn babies they sound so cute.

I hope you get lucky naturally that would be brilliant. I've got everything crossed for you.

Oh hun, it's horrible isn't it having to tell people it didn't work, i imagine it's worse having to tell family. Our families don't know about our treatment, i couldn't handle them asking about it all the time, and my mum and my auntie are such gossips, i could imagine them giving each other the low down on the telephone about how each treatment went and oh no........... they would drive me insane.

If you are really unhappy with your clinic, it would be worth looking into an alternative. It is a lot of money at the end of the day and you want to make sure that they are on the ball to give you the best possible chance of getting pregnant.

Wow five IVF's and no baby. I know a lady who tried IVF unsucessfully five times, she never became pregnant and is now in the process of adoption. Oh well hopefully we will be fine and will never get to that point. I don't think adoption is something that i could do personally. I have talked about it with DP and he's not sure either.

Well let's keep positive about your second IUI, this is going to be your big one xxx thumbup

hello again,

I'm on day 7 now and I've been injecting since day 2, I've already had one scan and I'm going for another tomorrow. I had 6 small follicles one side and 4 small ones the other side on Friday so looking forward to seeing if any have grown since Friday.

It looks like my surge will fall at the weekend so getting excited but apprehensive about the whole thing again. Is there anything I should do or not do after or before that you guys can think of that they don't tell you as my clinic is so bad at letting me know anything. I didn't rest after the first one they just said get dressed and go home, nowhere to chill out or anything, should I insist this time?

I really want this one to work as we have to stop after this as we are going on holiday to America in early May and I wouldn't be able to fly if I fell after this month. So pressure is on!!

I have found through my homeopath a fertility company called pre conception the hair analysis test has anyone had this done? It tells you if you have any deficiencies or over any vitamins or minerals that can prevent you from conceiving.

I'm willing to try anything to help my chances! I've gone back on weight watchers and doing lots of exercise too, which will help me to take my mind of this whole thing too I hope.

How was your night out with the girls, have you recovered yet?

I hope you had a good night.

Hello

I haven't heard of that before, sounds interesting though. I think you get to the point where you are willing to try any thing dont you? i might look into that myself.

Well that's good news that you have lots of follicles! i hope you get a couple of lovely big ones ready for insem. I have always been told to rest for 10-15 minutes after insem, they usually leave me on the bed and tell me to leave when im ready. I would def insist on staying there for a min 10 minutes if possible. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow when you have your scan, make sure you update your diary so i know how you got on.

I joined slimming world 3 weeks ago and i have lost 6lbs which im so chuffed about. I have been on weight watchers before and i found it so easy to follow. I decided to give slimming world a go as DP's mum wanted to go and she motivates me to go too. We will have to keep letting each other how the weight loss is going as well as IUI!

My night out was fab! it was with the girls and my gay friend Dave, and we had such a laugh. I was really good and stuck to vodka and diet coke, so i didn't consume too many calories! I really felt poorly on Sunday though. I lay on the sofa most of the day watching television, but i did have to go to Tesco and do the food shop for the week, that was a struggle i have to say!

Well i hope everything goes well for you tomorrow hun, i'll be thinking of you x

I'm glad you had a good night out, it does you good to let your hair down every now and again.

My scan was fine today 2 have grown on one side and 1 has grown on the other so looking good for insem. They sent me home to inject again tonight and go back for another scan on Wednesday so I'll know more then but I'm guessing I'll be going to London for insem late part of this week!! :angel2:

I wish I knew why they couldn't just wait until I ovulate naturally rather than giving me the trigger injection to get me going, I'm sure they have there reasons I just feel like its so artificial, but I suppose if that is what has to be done then I'll do it.

I've never tried slimming world before, sounds like you're doing well though. I've lost 2 lbs in 4 days so far so I'm quite pleased with that, I'm doing lots of exercise too, the davina workout! hee hee DH keeps laughing at me but I'm glad I'm doing it, it takes my mind off my follicles!!

Going to send off my hair analysis forms tomorrow so have to wait up to 21 days to get the results from that so looking forward to that too. I'm so tired at the moment, does the menopur do that or is it just me? :tired:

Did you see the article in the paper at the weekend about the couple who spent £64,000 on ivf and finally fell pregnant on their 15th attempt!! They had to remortgage their house twice! That was one expensive baby.

keep munching the salad we're bound to get pregnant when we reach our goal weight

Love Sal x

Jeesss! that's a lot of money! i think we'll be lucky to have the money to pay for it once, let alone fifteen times! Do you have any idea how much the hair analsis is out of interest?

Good for you doing your workout DVD, i brought the colleen one as it was reduced (that probably says a lot doesn't it!) but i haven't put it on yet. It's still in the wrapper under the tv. Think i might need to get it out soon, had a bit of a binge out this week, ate a four finger kitkat today and two pancakes, one with chocolate sauce and banana! i am sure i have put on about three pounds since the weekend!

Well it sounds like your follicles are growing wonderfully, hopefully this is your month hun. Do you really have to go to London for insem? i bet that is a bit of pain.

Hello,

The hair analysis is £80 for the couple, it is on the foresight preconception website www.foresight-preconception.org.uk

I've just done my dvd again, god my legs ache it was boxercise tonight, I had to have a bath afterwards or I don't think I'll be able to walk tomorrow.

I really wanted a pancake today, I even bought all the ingredients ready but then worked out that one pancake was 3 points! I only get 18 for the day!! So gave it a miss. Gutted. Kept thinking if you want to get pregnant you've got to be thin.

I've just eaten a banana and keep thinking what can I eat next....hee hee

I'm in for another scan tomorrow so we'll see what happens there.
What day have you been going for your insem. They sent me on day 13 last time, bearing in mind that I always ovulate on day 14 or 15, instead of waiting for it to happen naturally they gave me the trigger injection on day 12 then I went in on day 13. It seems odd to me as everywhere says always wait until the day after ovulation. It wasn't even because of a weekend, my day 13 fell on a Tuesday?!

Does this sound normal to you?

:dust: :dust:Hi hun

I went for insem on day 15 last time but it should have been day 13, my follicles hadn't grown enough so i had to have another menepour and come back. It does make me think that maybe it was too late to insem then, but i really dont know. If you had insem on day 13, then that would be about the same as i me i think???

Oh well good luck for tomorow hun, it sounds like everything is going well so far for you. I really hope that you get your :BFP:

:dust: :dust: :dust:

We decided, well i decided that we weren't even going to try naturally this month. I have beeb feeling the pressure big time and needed to stop everything being about babies for once. I have to say though, that now i have had a mini break i keep wishing my next cycle of IUI would hurry up! but the other part of me feels like im not ready. I had been feeling really low and a few times i thought about going to see the DR to have a chat about the way i have been feeling but i decided against it as it's not as if they can give me anything to take! so i am hoping the break will help to settle my anxiety and build me up for the next and final treatment!

Anyway, i have a few weeks to go yet before that, so i will have plenty of time to support you through your dreaded :2ww and give you lots of smilies :hugs:

A bit edgey at the mo. Not sure what is going on with my body this cycle mmmmmm

I'm on day 13 now and I've had no signs that ovulation is close! I have been to the clinic every other day for scans and they just think its happening slow this month everything is how it should be. I normally have signs from day 9 that it is approaching but not this month. I'm just waiting for my LH surge and we're off to St. Barts for insem! Excited but apprehensive. I've been on this diet a while now and I'm exercising every other day to my workout dvd so perhaps that has slowed things down? I just assumed that with the injections that it sped things up? Obviously not! I guess if my follicles and womb lining are ready on my Monday scan then if I haven't surged they'll trigger me off?

I don't know. I'm feeling really blonde! this week, keep feeling faint and headachey really strange, not quite there?!! :loony:

How are you?

My OV was late this month hun - I kept having to go for scan as my follicles weren't big enough so it kept being put off and off - think I OV'ed about 5 days later than normal this cycle.

Hiya,

Yeah had my insem today. Very excited it went really well. DH had 95% mobility and hyperactive swimmers so all good. Just on the dreaded 2ww.

I take 2 powders to one liquid. Not for a while now though! Hopefully this is the one, staying positive as much as possible. Going to try and forget about this 2ww as lots to do with work and with DS birthday party on Sunday, its going to be loads of fun, we've got a bouncy castle and mini sumo suits to play with and it is fancy dress so should be good fun, then its his birthday on Tuesday so lots to do.

Hows you? Have you got AF yet? Started drugs?

sending you lots of babydust

Hiya hun

Wow that party sounds fab!!! bet you will have a lovely time, lots of special things to pass the time away.

I am still taking the northisterone tablets and feeling hormonal again, got to take them until next Tuesday and then it will be a case of waiting for AF to turn up and hoping she arrives on the right day this time. Once AF has arrived, i will need to contact the clinic to arrange my scan on day 5. Probably got a couple of weeks yet before i start next treatment.

The good news is that i lost the pound i put on last week! hooray, just need to loose one more pound to make half a stone! how are you getting on?

Well done losing the weight that's brilliant. I've lost on 3lb so far I'm still eating really well but I can't do the exercise at the mo as I figure jumping around might not be the best thing to do right now.

I've been feeling light headed today which I like the look of, I was like that when I was pregnant with Louis, probably too soon to look for signs but it keeps me thinking positive smile2

Hope you get your AF on time, I should think it puts stress on yo to make sure its all timed right?

Have a good weekend
