Hi Angie,


You can ask your RE, but I think that the FET would have much better success rates than a medicated IUI. My first IVF cycle I got a BFN, then we did a FET with the last two embryos from that cycle and I had twins! I did five IUI before that and never got pregnant----the only reason we did them is that the insurance company required them first before they would pay for IVF. Anyway, I'm a huge fan of FETs.
