Anyone getting a bfp after five iuis? Af showed up today so I'm getting ready to do my fifth cycle. Am I just kidding myself or do I still have a chance? Getting hard to stay hopeful. I think I'm going to try folistim this round.

I only did two rounds of IUI.  Still waiting on my sticky.

I've read before of after 3 then the chances goes way down. Doesn't mean it's impossible but ivf is more realistic. I haven't watch every detail of your journey since I left but is ivf an option for you?

And i think anything you try differently will change your chances.

I don't know how we could afford it

I think you will have a good shot with adding folistim. Fx

We've done 3 IUI's. But that was our cutoff number we set for ourselves before we even started. Do what works for you, emotionally & financially! FX & baby dust

Update....so I guess I pissed off my RE. I called her today to set everything up for this cycle as af started. I ask her about the folistim. I bought it for last cycle but my estrogen was too high so we didn't use it. I want to try something different. She wants me to continue using half a tablet of clomid only because I don't have any ovulatory issues. I get that but I bought it, I want to use it and I feel like we should try something different. She said she doesn't think its a good idea to change things around just to do something different when she said I reacted very well, just didn't get pregnant. I asked her about the chances of it working after five iuis and she was offended. Said I'm not going to waste your time and money if you don't have a chance. It just can take awhile. Iui only has 10% success rate and she says since I had a lap, it really only counts as one. I told her I do trust her but it is hard to keep doing the same thing and not getting different result when nothing is wrong with me. I also asked her about maybe taking a more in depth look at his swimmers. She said she already checked that when we do iui. I asked about shape, forward motion. She said she checks that too. Okay, well, I wasn't sure. Again, she made loud exhaling noises like she was annoyed told me this is what she does for a living, she's not going to waste my money or time, ect.

She's going to check my chart again later and call me back. I wasn't being rude or emotional. I thought those were valid questions. Maybe I'm just reading into it too much but I didn't like her tone. I feel like I should be able to ask all the questions I want. That's why I'm paying her.
