Hi Michelle! I had my u/s and blood test yesterday and got to talk to my doc which was really great. All of a sudden my ovaries are awake and I had four maturing follicles and one that may or may not start maturing. They like to see two to five follicles for an injectible/IUI cycle so I am right on track. I am continuing on the gonal F and had another blood test today. I think I will have to go back for yet another u/s and blood test tomorrow. My doc was very encouraging. He said that my body responded the way they wanted it to for my two clomid cycles and is doing well with this gonal f cycle too. He said we'd try this three time then move to ivf.
I think the reason for starting with IUI's is because my husband's sperm count and motility were slightly on the low side. I also think that they do it for unexplained infertility. We're in the unexplained/mild male factor category. At first my doc thought our only problem was the fibroid I had removed in January so we tried from Feb til june with no success on our own in addition to two years of trying with that stupid fibroid in the way!
I think a lot of clinics just start out with the drugs first and then move to IUI so maybe you won't need the IUI! Hopefully you'll get pregnant right away with the gonal F. So, if you don't mind my asking and feel free not to answer if you don't want to, why do you need provera to bring on a period? I read things about that and that they often prescribe gonal f or other fsh only drugs for women with PCOS so I didn't know if that's what you had or not. I read that women with PCOS often have a great response to gonal f on the lowest dose. Maybe that's all you'll need! Let me know how it goes!
Stacy :)
