I am hoping that someone out there has had this happen to them and could offer some insight. This was suppose to be out 5th IUI. Our last IUI cycle with injectables produced 3 follicles, the Dr. was hoping for more so this cycle he upped my meds to 3 vials of Menopur from 2. My follicles seemed to be slow coming this month, but when I went in on Saturday, Day 11, it looked like a 4th follicle was coming up to size so I went home happy. But then I received a phone call from the nurse saying they were concerned because my estrogen dropped. So they wanted to get me in for the insemination the next day since they were concerned I was already olvulating even though the largest of the 4 follicles was only 17mm and I had not done the HCG trigger shot. Well they did an ultrasound 1st and I had already ovulate and they think it was most likely some time on Friday. So we there was no need to do the IUI. They do say there is some hope since we BD on Thursday night and I had one follicle that should have been large enough to produce an egg. Only 1 egg!!! What happened?? With the increase meds why did I ovulate before the follicles got up to size?? The nurse said every once in a while they will have a cycle that just fizzles out like this. Our Dr. is on vacation this week and so he won't be able to review our chart until next week. I was taking Chinese Herbs with this IUI cycle, could that have been the reason? I did ask the Nurse about the herbs at the start of the cycle and the answer I recieved is that there are so many kinds of Herbs and they are not regulated by the FDA, it is up to me to decide if I want to take them as recommended by my accupunturist. I may have made the wrong the choice.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
