Fertility drugs

I recently started seeing a specialist in May. We went through a lot of testing. DH had testing does and he is fine. When my results came back I was hypothyroid and my eggs weren't maturing the way they should be. I just did one round of femera and had my ultrasound yesterday. They said I responded well to it so they gave me ovidrel. I'm supposed to do timed intercourse and take my first test august 1st. What I would like to know is: what are the success rates I this drug combination and how likely am I to conceive on the first round? My follicles measured between 18-20 and the dr said my lining was perfect. They also gave me progesterone suppositories to start taking on the 25th. Has anyone done this sort of treatment before? How did it go for you?

Good luck! I just took my last dose of femera today, and go for an ultrasound and possible trigger on Monday. I'm not sure what the statistics are for conceiving the first cycle, but I do know that with most fertility drugs your chances increase with each consecutive cycle. I'm sending you lots of baby dust!

I'm hoping it will only take one. August 1st is also our wedding anniversary. It would be the best anniversary present ever to have a BFP.

I'm hoping it only takes one cycle too. My husband has agreed to up to three consecutive medicated cycles, and then we're done. So I'm praying it only takes one.

I also just took my first cycle of femara because my body stopped responding to clomid. I have an ultrasound Friday and I am hoping that my follicles are good! I have read good things about femara online being effective so hopefully it works for us all!

Well my follicles were really good today at my ultrasound! I have two follicles that are big enough to do IUI on Monday so I am triggering tomorrow night and going in on Monday for the procedure!! Femara is awesome!!

Toopicky429 how did your ultrasound go today? Did you get to trigger today? I had my second try at IUI this morning and now I wait for two weeks to try and test!

I took a few tests. 3/4 said positive. Took 2 of the clear blue advanced with the weeks estimate on it and they came back pregnant 1-2 weeks. I hope it's for real and nothing false. I want to believe it soo bad but I don't want to get my hopes up. Doctor told me to test on the 1st but my antsy self got the best of me.

Just wanted to say GL!

I took femera for nearly a year (we had male factor infertility)... It definitely gave me perfect eggs and didn't mess up my lining so it should help you :). I'm currently 5 weeks pregnant :)

When the femera worked for you how long did you wait to test? Does the ovidrel shot give a false positive even a week after injection?

I had 2 big follicles so I triggered yesterday. I have to wait 16 days from yesterday before testing. Good luck!
