Funny Infertility Friday & CD10 Update

Today was my CD10 u/s and this picture above is kinda accurate. I only had two follicles, but I was on Femara 7.5mg for five days and Menopur 150ampules for several days. When she did the scan and then assumed I was doing iui this cycle, I about fell of the table. My response " I am NOT doing an iui for two follicles". My doctor was stunned which surprises me because all along they said I have bad eggs, so why would they waste a cycle on iui for me with only two follicles. I was just sitting there and shaking my head. The doctor then asked " how many did you think you would have?" I thought at least four and then went on to tell her last month I had four on Follistim and always respond well to the medications. She told me " well this isn't Follistim" I don't know if it was my self induced pissy mood, but I really wanted to slap the shit out of her at that point.

Oh well...........................................

We have a 14mm and a 16mm, lining was 6.5. Trigger tomorrow night and then TI. I don't have any choice but to make the best out of this situation so that is what I will do.

I also have some Menopur that I am willing to get rid of. Please let me know if you are interested. 


  1. This is such a redundant and inane comment, but I'm going to say it anyway. Sometimes all it takes is one good egg, and you've got two! You just never know. And I'm going to believe they are GOOD eggs and not bad eggs. I see what you mean about not using Menopur moving forward it does sound like you get better results with the other protocol. Happy bd'ing this week!!!

  2. I only had two when I got my BFP! I will be sending you TONS of good vibes :)

  3. Sorry you didn't get the response you were hoping for. I have to agree with Amber above though...2 follies is 2 chances! I'm realizing more and more lately, that # of follies has zilch to do with success in IVF, IUI, or otherwise. Gotta believe in those two super follies!
