Yesterday, I had a natural cycle IUI at Cooper. The pre-IUI ultrasound looked as if the follicle did not release. I didnot use a tigger shot. My blood work showed I started to surge on Tuesday. My estrogen and progesterone levels reflected ovulation, yet on ultrasound, the follicle did not collapse. The nurse mentioned LUFS (luteinising unruptured follicle syndrome). Does anyone have experience with LUFS? Another possibility mentioned by the nurse was the follicle filling up with fluid after ovulation. I feel down. This was my 11th IUI since 9/2010. I feel hopeless at times. The closest I got was last month when I had a chemical pregnancy.
First - if you got a chemical last month - then that is really promising.
Did you use a trigger shot last month? Which one?
Some people with LUFS cannot release with Ovidrel and must use something stronger - like Lupron. Others don't release every month. You could be in that category. You may want to use a trigger shot every month "just in case."
Have you been doing all of your IUIs with Coopers?
