Second time doing IUI what should I expect. Why my doctor increase the dosage of bravelle (urofollitropin)?. Are these injections effective?

Second time doing IUI what should I expect. Why my doctor increase the dosage of bravelle (urofollitropin)?. Are these injections effective?

Bravelle (urofollitropin): No need to increase dose if you ovulated with 1-2 follicles. Increasing the dose will only increase chances of multiple pregnancy (not good!). These injections are very effective with pregnancy rates around 15-18% per cycle with iui. You should expect the same as the first time. ...Read more

On IUI with inj. 1st cycle 125/225IU Follistim-3 follicles, 2nd cycle 200IU Follistim-1 follicle.  3rd IUI MD wants 450IU, is that dose too high?

Not too high: It's still a standard dose, used frequently. Whether it's "too high" really depends on how you responded at lower doses., especially what your estradiol (estrogen) level peaked at. Trust your doctor, but ask him/her questions if unclear. Good wishes. ...Read more

Depends: First of all ovulation kits are not always perfect and they work less for women who do not ovulate. Even if Clomid (clomiphene) works, it still does not guarantee how fast the egg grows and so sometimes a later ovulation can occur. ...Read more

3 failed iui, took 100 mg clomid, n on bravelle (urofollitropin) + hCG trigger shots from cd 10. Today is cd13 n still no + opk. Do injectables delay ovulation? Worried

Test again: It may be positive tomorrow. You must have had positive opk's prior to the iui's. It's hard to not worry yourself into a frenzy when working on fertility issues but it sounds like you are getting good attention. ...Read more

Took Clomid (clomiphene) 100mg cd3-7,trigger shot cd 11. 7 mature follicles. IUI cd12 30hrs post trigger & cd 13 49hrs post trigger. What would adding FSH cd9 do?

Took Clomid (clomiphene) 100mg cd3-7,trigger shot cd 11. 7 mature follicles. IUI cd12 30hrs post trigger & cd 13 49hrs post trigger. What would adding FSH cd9 do?

CC/IUI: Some stimulation protocols combine CC with small doses of hMG/FSH added later. These protocols are a little bit arbitrary, meaning they reflect "recipes" that an individual doctor has found helpful, not a general practice. You'd need to ask your own doctor why he/she wants the FSH on CD9. ...Read more
