failed second IUI
Mon, 02-22-2010 - 9:57pm

So I had my second IUI on 2/14. I was supposed to have it on 2/7, but was not ready. Apparently I must have been, because I just got my period. According to my IUI I should have my period next week. But no I have it one week early!! Exactly when I would normally have it. I feel like I should blame the doctors, but I know it is not there fault. I mean it worked the first time, but did not stick.:( Why did it not work this time?

Tomorrow I have to call my doctor, so hopefully I can start again this cycle. I am not sure if I have to wait one cycle, I hope not. I just feel like not trying any more.

I just cannot keep going through this, I just feel like I am never going to have kids. DH and I have only been trying for a year and a half, that is not that long but it feels like forever. I am trying to be positive about everything but I cannot anymore. Why can't everyone get pregnant easily?? It's just not fair!

Sorry this message is going in a million different directions. But this is what I am thinking about right now. Thanks for listening

:( I'm so sorry Carrie! It does sound like the timing was off on the IUI, ugh how frustrating. I hope you don't have to wait a cycle in between, I can't see any reason why you'd have to. (but hey what do I know?)

You're so right, this journey is just not a fair thing to some and it is so annoying. Many hugs, I'm h&p that the timing is right on for your next IUI and you get a sticky little one this time.



I'm 38, DH is 42 and we are TTC #1. We've had 3 unexplained miscarriages and a bout with Asherman's Syndrome but we're determined.

So I called my doctors office and the nurse I spoke with does not believe that I have my period. Sorry in advance for the to much information. I told her that last night when I went to the bathroom I had some blood, then this morning I had nothing. When spoke to the nurse she said it is not my period, after I spoke to her I went to the bathroom and there was blood my my pad and when I wiped. Then I went to the bathroom on lunch and nothing. So I called the nurse again and she still said that it is not my period. Sorry for all the information. Has anybody had any experince with sonething like this??

Thanks, unfortunately it is AF. i just hope the nurse at the docs office believes me this time. I hope I can start Clomid this week. I just have to figure out what day they will be counting CD 1, today or yesterday. Thanks for your support.
