Is there anyone who has had artificial insemination done to help them conceive? What were the costs, how long did it take for you to get pregnant using this method and what brought you to decide upon this procedure?

I did it because I was taking injectable fertility drugs to induce ovulation. I had to go in for frequent ultrasound monitoring because of the fertility drugs. The IUI was very cheap in comparison to the meds and monitoring, and my doctor told me using IUI would increase our odds of conceiving. The IUI itself was a very quick procedure and the cost was between $300 and $500 (drugs and monitoring was between $5k and $10K per cycle). I conceived twins on my second round of injectables with IUI, but that was about 3 years after my first doctor's visit.

After multiple miscarriages over many years, I went to a Reproductive Specialist and did IVF with PGD. The first time it did not work, the second time it did!! I have a wonderful little Boy! Each time it cost us $12,000 out of pocket for what was not covered by Insurance. I did PGD (pre-genetic diagnosis) & found out for whatever reason my eggs were mostly flawed. I had a 24% chance and it worked.
