Using this drug for the 3 rd time for an IUI. No pregnancy yet. Keeping fingers crossed this time works. If not we have to consider IVF.

I tried this medication for the first time this month and was planning to do IUI. However; on day 9 of my cycle, the medicine caused me to ovulate early (doctor said it happens in 10% of women). Guess, I will have to try again next month.

First round I developed 14 mature follicles and the second round the RE decreased dose by half and I had 4 mature follicles. We conceived with our first attempt of an IUI. We were VERY pleased
