ICLW Welcome

Hi everyone, my name is Melissa and my husband Rob and I have been trying since May of 2007 for a little one. I'm currently on my 3rd IUI attempt, CD6. I'm taking Letrozole on CD3 thru CD9, and then I'm doing Menopur shots on CD10 thru CD12. I'll be going in on CD13 for a follicle check, and I'm guessing an IUI before January 1st. It's been a really hard 2009. We finally saw an RE and were diagnosed with MFI (abnormal shaped sperm) and given a less than 1% chance of conceiving naturally. I'm praying that this IUI will finally work for us, since our next option is IVF. Unfortunately our insurance doesn't cover IVF, so we would have to take out a loan to pay for it. My dream is that it won't come to this and everything will work out in our favor for once. I look forward to getting to know all of you!

  1. Hey chickee. Yeah, we're scheduled to go for a follicle study on the 28th. It was only 1 week after my IUI that I started my period. Weird, but typical for me. The follicle study will be on day 17 because of Christmas, so I'm not very hopeful for this month. :( I was really hoping that we would both be celebrating bfp's right now. BTW, what is ICLW?

  2. Good luck with your IUI; I'm also glad you found an RE - it's amazing the clarity that comes with it!

  6. Good luck with your IUI, I hope those follicles are ready soon! Injectables and IUI are what worked for me, so I'll pray that it's the same for you.
