It totally depends on your clinic...some can get you started right away with your next period. Others have specific windows of time that they allow new cycles to start. Check with them....my current clinic was able to get me started right away with my next period. After your period starts, it's usually 6 weeks or so start to finish. It's a long process, but it goes quickly once you are in the midst of it.

Good luck!

We decided 4 months before getting started. In that time, we found out I had previously undiagnosed endometritis from my m/c and d&c. So after treating that with antibiotics DH and I talked and decided that the inflammation was probably why the previous 4 IUIs didn't work (embryos can't implant in inflammed tissue). So we decided that since we couldn't do IVF until June b/c of our schedules, we'd try another IUI with the inflammation gone. BFN. Should have saved our $ but it was so hard waiting and doing nothing. So here we are!
