Anyone had success with IUI on a natural cycle?

Hello, I haven't been on here for ages as been trying not to obsess too much! I was just wondering if anyone had success doing IUI without drugs to get more eggs.
I've had 3 attempts like this (just with a trigger shot to time ovulation, and an extra one later on to boost progesterone levels).
The Doc promised that we could move to IUI with drugs, but then last time DHs count was pretty low (previously it was as good as normal after washing), so he said next stage would be IVF. However, DH has to have more blood tests first, so in the mean time we're continuing with the IUI, as it is almost better than doing nothing and fairly cheap. I've tried searching the site to find out if anyone has had any luck doing 'natural' IUI, but couldn't find anything.
This site is great, I know I'm not the only one thinking about it all the time, although sometimes I could forget all about it and obsess about something else instead.

Hi, Claire
I honestly don't know if anyone on FZ has. I myself got my BFP on medicated IUI...

Hi Clare,

I have just seen a consultant who has suggested that I start with natural IUI.

The chances of success are rather low apparently although I have read some encouraging stories on various sites.

We are going to limit the natural cycles to three attempts before trying with med's.

Good luck
