RE: New to site & first iui

Hi, I am new to this site too, have to be honest forums are not usually my thing, but having read other people's threads I thought it may be a good thing for me

I am on my first attempt at IUI and on day 13 of my 2ww, the doc said I should test on day 15.

I am surprised to hear how all consultants seem to do this procedure differently. I had Letrozole tablets from day 2-6 of my cycle, and started puregon injections (75ml) on day 4 of my cycle. I had a scan on day 4, 7 and 9 and had the insemination on day 11. The Consultant said I had 3 good sized folicles and that my ovaries were super speedy at producing folicies, he also said my womb lining had thickened nicely. My partner produced a sample of 47million sperm (supposedly good?)

I felt really positive but as the testing date approaches I am worried I am going to get my period, I feel bloated and I feel slight stomach cramps which are playing with my mind....

I am not sure I can cope with this not working! :-(

RE: New to site & first iui

Hi Kirsty,

I am new to this site and on my first IUI also! I am having the IUI tomorrow but they must aspirate one folicle... I am really excited but trying hard to be realistic as it only has a 20% chance of working - as my DH pointed out again this morning!

How are you getting on? Have you been on meds?
What stage are you at?

Best of luck,

Karried

Hi Ria,

Best of luck on Monday, I would imagine you will be in on Tuesday for the IUI if your next scan is Monday.

Let me know how you get on... I have mine in about an hour - a little nervous now!

good luck!... Karrie

I've just started my first cycle of IUI - took my first dose of clomid today, going for a scan next Thursday. I'm really excited but not quite sure what to expect... good luck to all of you.

HI Indie Chick,

I am on the TTW now... Trying hard not to think about it!
I can't test until the 7th.

How are you feeling? when is your next Scan? were you trying for ages before you got the BFP? Congratulations - it is great news!
