Default Injectables & IUI success?

Hi!
I am not pregnant (though I do hope to be sometime in the near future). I was just wondering if any of you have had success with injectables and IUI? I tried many many many cycles of clomid only to find out that my body does not react to it. I'm in my second cycle of down regulating with birth control pills, lupron injections, gonal f injections, ovidrel and IUI.

I am feeling anxious and wondered how many, if any, find this method helpful??

THANK YOU!!!
Ruby

I got pregnant with injections and IUI. It was my first cycle that I actually ovulated on! The best advice I can give is take it really easy after you get the IUI. I ended up getting OHSS so was pretty much forced to be lazy, but I swear it helped!
Good luck!

I did injectibles with timed intercourse... but was also successful. The clomid didn't work for me either. But once they got ovulation going, it took only 2 cycles. (My 1st injectibles cycle got cancelled for over-response, so I did a total of 3 injectibles cycles.)

I've done gonal F, ovidrel, and IUI 4 times and got pregnant 3 of them. I also did not respond to Clomid. I've been happy with this method! Good luck!

Wowzers.. thanks for your replies. You have eased my anxiety as it brings be comfort to hear other successes. When my first round failed I was heartbroken; I tried so hard not to get my hopes up but when they were up I couldn't bring them under control!

I start Lupron Injections on the 12th, Gonal F on the 22nd...

Thanks again!!!

I have no luck with clomid. My first round was clomid/injectibles but cancelled to no response. Second round was injectibles and cancelled for overstimulation. Got pregnant with twins on the third round with injectibles, trigger shot and IUI.

I tried many cycles of clomid and femara with IUI and Ovidrell with NO luck. The first cycle of follistim I over stimulated and they cancelled my cycle. I got pregnant my very next round of Follistim, plus Ovidrell plus IUI then another 1/2 Ovidrell injection 7 days after IUI. I DO agree to really make sure you take it easy after IUI. Oh and I also did acupuncture the day before my IUI. Good LUCK!!!! Hope this works for you!
