I used HCG my last IVF (successful) so I am nervous about the change to Ovidrel. Does anyone know any down side to using this or know of any people that it did not work for? Thanks.


Toni - October 2

Isn't that the same thing? I think Ovidrel is a brand name. Not sure though. I used it without any problems at all.

Hi Toni
Thanks. I had my IUI today. Doc explained one vs the other. HCG is derived from urine of pregnant women, YIKES, and Ovidrel is recombinant ( or chemical derived) and you are right, same result but not the same. It is more expensive which is why it is not so universal yet. Thanks again. Any luck?

Hey Lee, hope your IUI is successful! Is it your first time for that? I am going tomorrow for a sono to see where I am with this first round of clomid. My dr wants to go ahead and do an IUI. I am 39. So I hope that I get to do that this month. Keep us posted on your IUI results and symptoms! Good luck,

Hi Toni
I am 40. This is my first IUI, but I had one IVF and have a beautiful 3 year old as a result. I am feeling very good about this and I promise I will stay in touch. Good luck tomorrow, let me know.

Lee, Just had my sono and I have 4 follicles and we are going for the IUI on Wed. How many follicles did you have?


Lee - October 3

I had three. Two really big ones and then one that I count (RE didn't) it was 16mm right at the moment of IUI. Stay in touch and good luck on Wednesday! Four is great.


Toni - October 4

Lee, I will check in tomorrow. I can't wait to see if it worked for you!


TO TONI FROM LEE - October 5

How did it go?


Toni - October 5

Lee, it went great. I was worried it would hurt but it didn't. However, I have some cramping now. My dh's sample was good. About average numbers and great motility. Now the 2 week wait! Did you have cramping and how long did it last? For some reason ( I know not valid), I feel afraid to workout!
