Just decided to write to get out some doubts. My partner and I just did our 4th round of IUI. Last one was the end of last year. My other half takes a while to produce mature eggs so they put her on Gonal F at 25ml as she produces a lot of eggs, and then slowly increased it over 2 weeks to 75mls as the eggs were still quite small. Finally the doctor said she had a nice sized egg and she triggered with Ovidril and back in the next day, being last Tuesday. They then have decided to try her on 1500iu of Pregnyl every 3 days and have also just started her on Cronine to boost her P4 levels. She's been very positive but today she's just crashed. The pregnyl has made her nauseous and even physically ill once when she was given the first 2 shots, the nurses did state that if she remains ill it could be a good sign. On 7dpo she told me she went to the toilet and wiped after using it (sorry for tmi) and there was a tiny (and I mean tiny) amount of pinkish/brownish blood on the toilet paper and she had a slight cramp on her right side, nothing to drastic, and then nothing since. Yesterday her P4 results were 51 which they were happy with as the first go without the Cronine was 33, and she had her last shot of Pregnyl last night. She hasn't felt sick all day today and therefore has gone into the it hasn't worked mindset. She works in a childcare centre and it hasn't made it easier on her having all the kids around. It's hard seeing her like this as there's no real reason why it hasn't worked and there's nothing I can say to make it easier. She's just fed up. She has a severe needle phobia so all the needles has pushed her to the edge, plus the 3 failed attempts and on top the Cronine really makes her like a roller coaster.
I guess, it's made me start to feel the same way, that it hasn't worked as everything has calmed down. I don't show her that though and just hope it's her body getting used to the drugs and not that it hasn't worked at all as she's only now 9dpo. I'm sorry for the vent, I thought this would have been the best place to get it out. Thanks.
