    Hello,

    I'm married for 6 years and trying to conceive from 2 years. Had 2 miscarriages in my 2nd month pregnancies:sob:. Now taking treatment with Dr.Ratna Durvasula from Rainbow hospital, Hyderabad. She gave me Gonal-F Injections 75IU but on CD9, there is no follicle growing :disrelieved:and it seems that doctor is not satisfied with my endometrial thickness as well which is 5mm:weary:. Do any one of you have slow response to Gonal-f. She gave me another 3 injections and asked to come for scan on Day 12. On Day 6, follicle is 7mm and Day 9 it is 8mm. So there is no much increase. Do any one has same problem. This cycle was supposed to be my first IUI. But no response with injections. Please share some tips regarding the same.

    Though i have not been in this situation, i could understand your worries. continue ur FS and see if there is any improvement. have you done FS alone (without iui) before? dont worry about this cycle.. there is always another cycle to try.

    It can happen if follicles require more FSH for their growth. Just continue another 3 days chances r that dey may develop and mature. I think ur doctor can wait until Day 18 also before the trigger shot. Some people ovulate late. So ur follicles still have a week to develop n so will the endometrial thickness. Since it's ur 1st IUI cycle v have to wait n watch. N don't worry if this doesn't work out this month ur doctor can go for higher doses of Gonal-f. Infertility treatment is a trial n error process, what works for one person may not for other. So u just relax don't go into d technicalities, keep calm n rest well. Lots of sticky baby dust to u.:thumbsup:
    N I had one doubt, what's d indication for ur IUI? N what was the cause for ur miscarriages??

    Hello Ashwini,

    Thank you so much for your positive reply. Yes My doctor has kept on 3 more injections of same dose gonal 75iu. So I had another scan on Jan 8, 2016 and waiting for some positivity. For my miscarriages, my doctor told that my egg quality or my DH sperm quality might be weak as I am 32yrs and my DH is 36yrs. So doctor told that it may be bcos of our ages the quality of the egg or sperm is not quite good. So she said that for IUI the quality comes good and there may be chances of conceiving with good quality egg and sperm. I am so tensed about this and never thought that it is this tough to get conceived :( She asked me to do some abdominal exercises because my tummy is bit fatty and some exercises help improve the chances. Please pray for me. I was always been a silent watcher in this site. But now wanted to take all of your support.

    Definitely positive things will come ur way this year. Just trust God n believe he is always with u. Don't think much about the process coz it will stress u more n never compare ur findings with anybody else's. U r unique in ur own way n every body has different response to drugs. Just follow ur doctor 's instructions. Tc dear. :hello:

    Hello "hopingformiracle" Thanks for the information. This gave me some hope. I have my scan tomorrow which will be Day 12 and I will update the results if the follicle was grown or not. I have been doing some abdominal exercies as well since 2 days. Lets see what would be the result. So what about your result? Finally you got a positive for your IVF? please update :)
