Are you currently in an IUI cycle or will you be starting one soon?  What types of meds will you be using?

I don't know when we will be starting, my doctor just recommended it to us. I'm just not sure where to start and what questions to ask, having a hard time accepting moving to the this step. My mind just went blank when he suggested it. How do you know that it's time to try IUI? I just feel so defeated that I'm at this point in trying to get pregnancy, not sure what I've been doing wrong, why my body isn't working.

Michelle:

I've done 4 IUIs so just ask away!

don't feel defeated, i see an iui as helping my dreams come true without all the bodily functions getting in the way. i have learned so much in this journey.

are you charting? doing OPKs? fill us in on your story and we can help ease your fears!

Today!! Just had my 2nd IUI today!  What a crazy cycle it has been.  To top it off I just typed the entire thing - it's the stuff of reality TV, and it didn't;t post!  Well, that is just par for the course!

Nutshell - 1 unsuccessful IUI, 2 months cancellations due to cysts, Sept 9 get the go ahead, Sept 19th BW shows eggs need 1 more shot gonal f, which I threw away, convince neighbor to dig in trash and recover, day of IUI get stuck in crazy DC traffic, almost miss sperm "window of viability", get IUI, Dr comments on good cervical position and CM (has never happened before, hoping for the best!  OK BREATHE!!!

I am 37, going to do my first IUI in October. We’re not using any meds because my Dr. said my hormone lab work doesn’t indicate needing it right now.  I won’t say that I’m not worried about that after reading some of the treatment plans of others but we are willing to start with a simpler approach. I’ve been doing OPK’s for the last 3 months with consistent results. Next month is the real deal!!

Not sure if this board is still going but AF showed up today. I am still taking my progesterone which is really confusing as to why I would start my period. Preg test was today so I guess I have my answer. This is frustrating and I am very sad. I was really hoping.

I got a BFN today, so we'll be doing IUI #3 mid November.  I was prepared this time to get let down, so it really didn't phase me.  For our first IUI I was so hopeful and excited that I was really bummed and put out.  I think having a plan that assumes you won't get pregnant helps.  We had already been discussing how many more IUIs we would try and what options for IVF we might take.  I hope the rest of you are having better luck!
