Lizzy,

Welcome to FZ.

Can't help you re iui, but can tell you that the RMU at the Infirmary is fab. Are you there or Jimmy's?? I was at LGI for my ICSI. There is another girl on here who has had treatment at Jimmy's if you are there. I also knew someone there who said it was good.

Anyway, good luck for your treatment, whichever one you are at!!

Hi Lisa

Welcome to the board. If you have any Q's just shout. There are many people here on both Clomid and IUI.

I can't help you with IUI specifically at your Leeds clinic, but can give you an idea of what IUI involves :

The protocol of drug stimulated IUI can differ from clinic to clinic. If you are continuing on Clomid and just having insemination when you are ready to ovulate, you should carry on taking Clomid days 2-6 of your cycle, then you may be called in to your clinic to have scans to check your follicle developement and to see when you are likely to ovulate. You may also have to do the Ovulation Pee Sticks to watch for your LH surge.

When you are likely to ovulate... the actual insemination procedure should be something like this:

On the morning of your insem, your partner/husband will have to provide a sample early in the morning and take it to the clinic. They like to have this for a couple of hours. So you may be able to go home again. The clinic wash and prepare the sperm. You may then be requested to pick up the ready sample from the Lab (or they will have delivered it to your Doctor ready for use.
You go back to your Doctor a little later in the day for the insem.

This is done by opening your cervix - as is done when you have a smear. The sperm are already prepared in a syringe/catheter. This is then placed in your cervix and they carefully manouver it so it reaches up high into your uterus.

The whole procedure should only take 1/2 hour, then you can be on your way home again

Good luck

Lisa

HI thanksfor replying. I'm not sure as yet which hospital i'm at. I have just found out from my dr that you are only suposed to have 6 mths of clomid and i've had 12. Anyone else had this many.
I thought I was put on the waiting list in Feb but then i eas told June now been told Feb. I just wish they'd get on with it.

hi Lizzy

I had more than 12 months of clomid on a low dose. what was your dose? I think quite a few others have been on more than 6 months.

Hi again

I think the tablets come in 50mg doses. I was on half a tablet a day & I remember my dose being 25mg

Did you get them prescribed from the hospital? Are you going to ask them whether it is ok to continue. Are they monitoring you with scans or blood tests?

good luck Lisa
