 Hi all, I will be doing my first IUI in September & I'm already nervous about the outcome. My RE says he's gonna start me off with:

  1. fertility blends
  2. blood works
  3. injectables cd3-7
  4. ultrasound
  5. injectables again
  6. more ultrasound
  7. all being well hcg trigger shot (he's aiming for 4 eggs)
  8. semen wash & procedure
  9. then more shots
  10. wait 2 weeks for pg test

Was this the way yours was done if you had done IUI? All this cost almost $1,000 equivalent to JA$100,000.00 ( I live in Jamaica)

Any advice anyone one want to share? Thanks for reading :))

I've had three IUIs, but none of mine were monitored, so mine was a lot more simple. I did two IUIs on Clomid, and one on Femara. I tested for ovulation with OPKs at home, and then had my IUI scheduled for the next day. And then waited for my period. None resulted in pregnancy for me, so I hope you have better results! :) At least with the ultrasound and being monitored, you will know where you stand and what is going on. I wish that was the case for me, but my insurance doesn't cover any of it, and we paid $400 out of pocket for each IUI cycle.

 Awww sorry to hear none of them were monitered and that u didn't get preggo. I wish u luck in whatever else ur trying to do, my doc is the greatest he told me he doesn't use clomid on his patient as it's a waste of time and that he just suggest they do injectables and he said he also aim to have aleast 4 mature eggs to work with. But if the patient want to try the clomid/femera he let them try it.

Good luck and all the best :)

I didn't really care for Clomid either. I don't think it did much for me, although I did get positive OPKs. I like Femara a lot better, this is only my second month on, and I already feel like it works better for me. I would like to try injectables sometimes, too. Anyway, thank you, and good luck to you, as well! :)

 Awww sorry to hear none of them were monitered and that u didn't get preggo. I wish u luck in whatever else ur trying to do, my doc is the greatest he told me he doesn't use clomid on his patient as it's a waste of time and that he just suggest they do injectables and he said he also aim to have aleast 4 mature eggs to work with.
