Hello everyone,

I normally post on the IUI board, but we are considering moving on to IVF and I have a question for you girls. RE said I would have to skip next cycle because I need to start taking some med on cd21 in order to do IVF, but I am wondering if we can still go ahead and try IUI next cycle, even though I would start taking whatever med he is talking about on cd21?? Anyone know if this is possible?? I am meeting with RE tomorrow to discuss what we are doing, but when DH brough this up I thought I would find an answer here sooner! Thanks for any info!! Take care.

Hi Sandra

I had the same question when I went from IUI to IVF. I thought that we could at least try and get pregnant ourselves or have an IUI done - but the response was no, because you could get pregnant and it would not be detected early enough causing damage to the foetus when you start taking the drugs on day 21. It might be different where you live but in Australia my Obstretican would not let us try naturally or have an IUI

Good luck
