Hello everyone!

Hi all, it’s nice to meet you! My husband and I have had one unsuccessful IUI treatment (in March) and on July 20th, went in for another. We’re waiting for the results and it’s the [I]longest two weeks[/I] ever! I don’t have known fertility issues, but my husband does.

We’ve done the bravelle, letrozole, and now this time we added progresterone treatments.

I look forward to talking with you all as we take this journey together!

New to this Forum.

Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum and am looking to read about the experiences of others and make some new friends.

I decided to undergo IUI after being single for the past two years. There is nothing that I want more in this world then to be a mother.

From a very young age I was diagnosed with Polycystic ovaries and until now have never tried to get pregnant. I have been on pills for the past 5 days and just started my menopur injections today. I am not sure of the success rate on the first try, but I am hopeful and keeping the faith.

This whole experience has been so exciting, yet scary too at the same time. I am looking forward to having a place where I can speak openly about my thoughts and what I am going through.

Hi Sandi! Nice to meet you - I’m new here too. We’re only a few week apart in our progress - I’m in the long two week wait now.

Perhaps we could check in with each other every now and again.

I’m having completely different symptoms this cycle. Last month I was crampy almost every day. Yesterday was the 1st day after the IUI that I had cramps and they hurt so bad. They’re starting up this morning too. I’m completely exhausted this morning, but that’s probably because I kept getting up to pee!

Day 6, hoping I can make it to next Wednesday!

First IUI yesterday - fingers crossed!

Hi everyone!

My husband and I have been trying for 18 months, and had our first IUI yesterday. Doc said everything looks good, had five large (21+) follicles, a decent lining, and my husband’s got some good swimmers after the wash. Did Clomid, plus the trigger, and start progesterone on Friday. Here’s hoping!!!


#2549

Good luck to you! I’m at the midpoint of my TWW and am starting to get anxious!

Your follicle count sounds really good. My only advice is not to read into every symptom you thik you might be having, early stuff can just be the HCG trigger.

I’ll be thinking of you. Good vibes and lots of sticky baby dust!

re introduction

My husband and I are planning on starting the IUI process in september. I was on these boards about a year ago starting the process for the first time. We did 3 rounds of IUI and got our positive. My pregnancy progressed wonderfully, and other then the normal pregnancy issues I had a healthy pregnancy. At 36 weeks we went in for our weekly appt and the heartbeat was 145 " which was right on track" I was so excited and ready to meet our daughter (skylar lynn) the next day i felt kinda off, but didnt think anything of it. By 1:30 I realized that I hadnt felt any movement after eating lunch which was abnormal, but also heard that the closer you got to delivery the less active the baby was, so I waited it out for another hour or so and then called the dr. by the time i traveled home, and met up with DH " at this point i was not really worried i just thought we would go in and get checked out, and perhaps i was dialating or something". The ultrasound was SILENT nothing to hear…the obgyn came rushing in and counted about 40bpm so i had a stat c section where they knocked me completely out. When i woke up they told me that her heart was not beating when she was delivered, and that they put her on a ventilator, and worked on her for 19mins “yes 19” before her lil heart started to beat again…she suffered extensive brain damage which left her brain dead, and we had to take her off life support. I never got to see her open her eyes or move her lil hands etc… Now it has been almost 7 months since i gave birth, and her passing, and we are ready to try again. I am terrified that something will go wrong again since the only thing they were able to confirm was fetal distress. sorry for the super long post, and i realize that this was probably not the place to put my horror story, but it is part of me moving forward " not moving on as she is and will be my first born"

Nikki, I’m so sorry for your loss. I couldn’t imagine what you went through. I’m glad to hear you are giving it another go. I wish you the best of luck!

First IUI today

Hello!! I am new here! About 15 years ago I joined a group called ONNA and they helped me so much. I am now ready to try again… This time I’m 40, though…Been TTC for 7 months. Had to get my right ovary and tube removed in June due to a large solid mass. They suspected Cancer and wanted to do a hysterectomy, but I refused before the surgery and told them to leave everything else…just take out the right one. Well, it was cancer free and here I am with my first round of IUI this month. Just has the second procedure today so now I begin the dreaded 2ww! We are going on vacation on Monday for 10 days, so I cant even get the ultrasound to see if i Od!! I know that I won’t be able to get through this without all of u!!


#2553

Newbie! Love this forum!

Hi everyone!
Just joined tonight! I’m so grateful for this sight… What did people do 20 years ago without having wonderful places like this to be able to lean on one another?:grouphug:

I’m not really sure what my story is, as both DH and myself are completely fine, except that I haven’t ovulated on my own in years. (we’re both 28.) I recently had a very extensive bowel reconstruction due to Crohn’s Disease, and my dr thinks all the meds I’ve been on and the severity of my disease has caused my period to go into hiding!

I have a lot of follicles but all are very very small (last month all were under 6mm)

I keep seeing stories about everyone having to wait whole cycles for each new round of treatment- I’m worried that I’m not receiving the correct treatment, because I recently went through 3 rounds of clomid in 1 month (50 mg, then 100mg then 150mg). Is that too soon? I did not respond to it at all, and now month 2 I am on Menopur.
Last week I was on 75 mg, and I had some growth- most were at 8mm, and 3 were at 10, so not much. This week I was bumped up to 2 vials and go in for my u/s tomorrow morning.
Does this seem right? I’m worried I’m being rushed and it will not give my body time to react. I’m happy to be going so quickly if that is normal, but I’m not sure!

Any advice??

Hi All, I am a newbie as all of you. I joined this forum last week. I am 32 and DH is 33. We [FONT=&quot]have been trying for nearly 3 yrs. Did a Laparoscopy and was told I am free off cysts and my tubes are patent. All the tests done were normal for the both of us. [/FONT]
IUI#1 – [B]BFP [/B] (1st iui after the Lap) but MC at 4 weeks
IUI#2 – BFN
IUI#3 – BFN
IUI#4 – BFN
IUI#5 – was done on the 1st of August “on my 2 ww”
I really hope this time it’ll be a BFP, if not we re advised to go for IVF :frowning: Which i am really scared and worried about.

Hi ladies, I am a newbie. I joined this forum last week. I am 32 and DH is 33. We [FONT=&quot]have been trying for nearly 3 yrs - awhile on our own, then with IUI. Did a Laparoscopy and was told I am free off cysts and my tubes are patent. All the tests done were normal for the both of us. [/FONT]
IUI#1 – [B]BFP [/B] with Clomid (1st iui after the Lap) but MC at 4 weeks :frowning:
IUI#2 – BFN with Clomid
IUI#3 – BFN with Clomid
IUI#4 – BFN with Gonal F :grr:
IUI#5 – was done on the 1st of August 2012 with Gonal F
During my 2 ww (after the 5th IUI) I am getting weird signs. Most probably it has to be my mind playing games. Today its 5 DPO IUI, I have mild cramps on my right side of lower abdomen (Egg was in the right side too) When I drink water I get a metallic taste. I don’t know why.
I am getting discouraged with so many IUI’s Really hope this time it’ll work for us :pray: if not we are advised to move on to IVF.

Lots of Baby Dust for all of us…. :wings:

Didn’t work, :af: came on Sunday. I cried for about an hour, but am feeling much better today. Hubby and I have a dr. appt Thursday to discuss options. I want to try IUI one more time before we move onto IVF.

With our work/travel schedules, IVF will be early next spring (Gotta be in the same city for that to work) and I want us to have the best chance for it to work (me not being stressed). I’d also like to lose some weight.

Dang it!!! I really hoped this was it for y’all! Don’t give up. It’s easy to get frustrated and sad but remember you can try again. Please keep in touch. I’ll be thinking about y’all.*

Long time reader, First time poster.

I have been reading these forums for about 4 years now. I was researching and gathering information to help my husband and I through what we feel like is the biggest blow we have encountered in our marriage thus far.

My DH and I are both 36 currently and have been married for 4 years in December of this year, when we got married we talked about starting a family as soon as we could. I have a daughter from a previous marriage but my husband and I wanted our family larger so we started trying. After 6 months and no pregnancy we went to my OB/GYN and after numerous tests found out I was fine. We were advised to do a SA on my DH; without thought we agreed and joked about how awkward it was going to be to complete the test.
A few days later the earth collapsed beneath us. He was diagnosed with azoospermia. After a couple more tests to confirm we were sent to a reproductive specialist dealing with both male and female infertility because we were told IVF was our only option. After more blood tests we were told that my DH had a slightly low Testosterone and a slightly elevated FH, I think thats right. Our doc told us that a TESA would be our only chance at having our own children and even that was a slim chance and if that didn’t work out we would need to decide if we wanted to use DS. After my DH heard that he would have to have a biopsy of his “boys” he had everything skid to a halt and asked that I let him take it all in. A few weeks ago he looked at me and told me he was finally ready to proceed, he still doesn’t like the idea of his “boys” being cut but he wanted a baby regardless of how or the cost.

So now here we are I am super excited to have a baby with my best friend and love of my life but sad now since he didn’t seem to interested earlier we have no way to pay for it, which just frustrates me because now we will have to save for a couple more years possibly before we can proceed. Just seems like there are road blocks around every corner. I know we can overcome them it’s just annoying to know that if there was money just growing on a tree somewhere we could possibly have a baby. Sigh

I am sorry it was so long and I look forward to talking to you all more often.

:pray: for a miracle…

Hi Everyone. I have been reading a lot of the posts and thought that I would join. I had my first IUI on 7/27/12. I was on clomid days 5-9 and had hcg shot 36 hrs prior to IUI. I had 2 mature follicles and 2 immature follicles as of the day before my hcg shot. I am currently in my 2WW and it is so hard! today was day 10 and I finally broke down and bought some hpt after work. I tested this evening and as I expected, :bfn:. I know it was a bit early to test and also not early morning urine so I am trying not to think negatively (no pun intended). anyways bought a bunch so I figured I would keep testing over the next 3 days until my beta test. keeping my fingers crossed for all of us! :cross:
