Hello. I'm Mel and I'm 35 years old. My husband and I have been TTC for a little over a year. So far, I've had a vaginal sonogram, blood tests and an HSG test and everything looks fine. I have an appointment this week to talk about next steps. I'm interested in trying IUI without drugs. We'll see what the doc says.

Have you tried medications at all yet? I was ovulating on my own and we still did Clomid to see if it would help my chances, I did have other issues with a short luteal phase, but I'm surprised they haven't suggested trying meds on their own before IUI.

Well, this week will be the first appointment since taking the tests so I don't know what the doc will suggest.  So far all we've done is use the ovulation predictor urine tests.

I'm afraid of taking any drugs because of the higher chance of multiples.

My baby is a clomid baby and there is just one baby. Everyone is different and I can understand being hesitant. The odds are usually greater that you would only have one baby, but I know lots of women who still don't want to take the chance. Keep us posted on how your appointment goes. I hope you figure out a good plan that will get you a BFP quickly!
