We had our 3rd IUI on December 15th, on cycle day 13, after a CD 11 Ovidrel trigger and Letrazole on CD 3-7. Monitoring showed left ovary with 1 follicle at 20mm, right ovary with 1 @ 18.5 mm. Uterine lining 8 mm.
After the IUI, whilst reclining in my stirrups and chatting oh-so-naturally with my husband and RE fully dressed and myself…less so…we discussed what’s next.
We made the decision to do one more IUI cycle with more aggressive stimulation in January, then to begin an IVF cycle in February if I’m still not with child.
We’re fortunate to have insurance coverage for ONE IVF cycle, and because I’ve had 2 D&Cs in the past, she (my RE) suggested a saline Sonohysterography to rule out any uterine abnormalities.
I had an HSG at the beginning of the IUI journey, and Good Lord of Oreos - that was painful.
Can you please walk me through your experiences with a SSH? Is there pain? Was it in the office? What was the sensation compared to, say, an IUI or an HSG?
Thanks in advance
