5th IUI no go

Well our fifth shot didn't work either and my good old friend AF showed up this week.  DH and I want to try one more try on the hope that we won't have to go IVF, so back on clomid I go and we start the waiting game all over again.  Thanks for all of your support and well wishes!

So sorry, Misty. My 2nd IUI was a no go as well - actually it appeared to be a chemical pregnancy because I had small traces of Hcg. I'm hurting as much as you must be. I too am going to do one more iui, and RE wants me to go on to IVF right after that. However, I've only been ttc one year and I have unexplained infertility, so I feel like IVF would be too soon. I'd be curious to know what you decide. Have you tried vitamins, TCM, acupuncture, etc...? I think I owe it to myself to do that before trying IVF....

Caren,


I am sorry that your IUI didn't take either.

(((HUGS))) anytime a treatment doesn't work it is hard but sometimes I wonder about how they push you to do cycle after cycle without giving you a month off.
