SBruno - do you know if Menopur is as 'risky' as Gonal F? I know they say there is a possibility of cervical cancer with these treatments but didn't realise they are advising those with a family history of cancer not to taken them...

Hi Ladies

I had my first injection today! It went fine, Dp did it for me although he did jab it in to my leg, talk about getting his own back! I think I will do my own on sat! :snigger:

When I had the scan she said that i could have pcos which I was shocked at, every test ive had have all been fine, even the lap and dye.

I had a banging headache this morning I think I was stressing more than I thought I was because I was fine after! I could do with some relaxation classes or something to stop me stressing out so much!

Yep and i'm having a bad time of it. Hate it, hate it, hate it. I've got a really strong feeling that af is going to show up real soon. I'm only on CD 22, but i've been having cramps for a few days and since yesterday i'm getting "she's definately on her way" pain. Today as well, but it comes and goes. So i don't know what to think. :bawl: and i'm tired of hearing myself.

Hi ladies,

I had IUI this morning so I'm now officially PUPO and on my 2(and a bit)ww....had my scan first thing and I have to admit I didn't think my follie would be ready but it was so had tx just after 12pm. Am back home now resting up....am under strict instructions from DH to take it easy. It's a lovely day out there and I'm feeling pretty positive........let's see how I'm feeling later on in the 2ww :snigger:

Hope you're all doing well. Meadyhumm - well done with your first injection. Don't get too stressed about PCOS - it really is extremely common and doesn't necessarilly affect your fertility.

Charlie - I hope the pains are a good sign and hope the witch stays away x

MrsW - your 9 day results are looking good. Keep up that PMA and good luck for Monday and Weds x

Everyone else lurve

Hi everyone

Can i join in ur thread please??
i'm 27 DP 25 and we have recently been referred for assisted conception on nhs. We are on the ivf waiting list, but they are going to try iui a few months whilst i am waiting for ivf.

I know what IUI is, but im not sure what the process is with injections, scans, etc.. and was wondering if you ladies could help me please?!

Firstly my left tube is swollen so at a higher risk of ectopic pregnancy, what i'm wondering is could they scan me to see which ovary is going to release the egg, then if its my left ovary i could hold the iui until next month when my right ovary will release egg down my good tube. Sorry if im confusing everyone??!! ?(

I think they are going to give me clomid cos i never used to ovulate on my own.

So i would REALLY appreciate it if someone could give me a dummies step by step guide to this IUI lark??!!

thank you :happy:
xx

Hi girlies,

Had my IUI this morning at 10am - Snap SBruno and Kayjay!! We're on the 2ww together! DH's sperm was good, 19 million at 99% motility ( from 50 million total) much better than last IUI so we're feeling positive. Came home and slept most of the day!!

Kayjay - good to hear that you had you IUI as planned and you're relaxing!
SBruno - let us know how it went?
Betty - ditto - how did it go?
MrsW - sounds good! they are moving well. Good Luck for Monday and fingers crossed for Wednesday!
Charlie - PMA! PMA! it could be anything that cramping. it could be good news. Think positively and repeat to yourself positive sentences. You might look a bit mad but you never know it might help! I'm trying it this cycle. Last cycle I was all negative and convinced that AF was arriving at any moment when I felt cramping so this time I'm gonna put it to the back of mind and when I do think about it, I'm going to repeat positive sentences to myself (like 'I want to be pregnant this cycle, I want to be fertile') I know it sounds a bit mad but I'll try anything once!

Hello to George1 - welcome to the IUI chitter chatter. With ovulation induction, you might get a follicle on each side or only ever on your left side. You can't really tell and the ovaries don't really take turns. (as far as I know). But if you're willing to give it a try, speak to a clinic or your doctor and see if they will give it a go. It sounds like they are considering IUI for you so maybe the swollen tube isn't a concern to them. You can only ask them.
IUI - (my experience) - you go for a baseline scan when you get your period. They are checking for cysts and that you can go ahead with the IUI cycle. They show you how to inject yourself with the induction drugs (what they are and the quantities will be specific to you) you go away for about 8 or 9 days, injecting each day or every other day depending on what your doctor has decided. You then go back for scans to see what the follicles are doing i.e. if they are growing, no response or a slow response. The clinic might change your drug quantities depending on the scan results. Then (in my experience) you go back every other day for another scan to monitor progress of the follicle(s). Once one follicle has reached 18mm or over (deemed mature) you will be given a trigger shot (pregnyl) to inject at a certain time. Approx 40 hours after that, you will be asked to go to the clinic, if your partner is providing the sperm, he will need to be at the clinic a few hours beforehand to give the sample (in clinic) and for it to be prepared. Then you are inseminated via a catheter in through the cervix, to the uterus. Then you are usually asked to test 16 days after that (depends on clinic, some ask for a test 15 days after that some longer). Hope that helps.

It's all straightforward and you'll soon pick it up. I was embarrased the first IUI cycle but this cycle, I wasn't phased and even allowed two norwegian consultants to watch the procedure (visiting to observe my clinics way of doing things).

Hello to everyone else! I need to go back and catch up!

Claire - so good to hear you with loads of PMA....we ARE going to get pg this cycle! I like that way of thinking!

George - welcome to this thread...I hope you find it useful..I picked up loads about the process by joining in here as I had been waiting for my first assisted cycle. My experience was very similar to Claire's. They keep a close eye on you at the start so you'll know what's happening with follies on each side.

Betty - hun I know you've not got access to the internet at the mo but been thinking about you and hope all went well...looking forward to hearing from you on Tues..miss you x

All our other IUI ladies I hope you're all well and enjoying the weekend...loads and loads of babydust and :sticky: to us all x

Clairey congratulations on being PUPO :happy:

Like i said to KJ hope the 2ww is easy, and with all that positive thinking you´ve both got, it will definately help. Thanx for sending PMA my way hun :hugs:

George, welcome to the chitter chatter :happy: Don´t worry about it, you are seen to and monitored quite often. Good luck

I´ve just got home from work, cuppa tea, toast and 2 panadols. The af pains are getting worse. I´m only on cycle day 22 (9dpo) and normally when i have full blown af pains i should be seeing/seen the witch already. So don´t know what the heck is happening, my only guess is that the pessaries are holding it back. Going to try and get a good nights sleep and see what tomorrow brings.

Good night

Hi Girls! last night was 24 hours after my trigger shot and just had this ovulation pain all evening, sharp and dull at times on the left side where I had my big follies. This morning my temp rose by .4 degrees and I expect it to rise more by tomorrow morning. So we've been trying au natural, 'doing it' morning and night time and I am careful not to move right after. There is something nice about doing it naturally....

So if my eggie is now out I suppose it has another 24 hours to live at most...My Dr. called and looking at my results this month could not understand why I can't conceive and I am taking gonal f and doing IUI. So I explained that this is the first month in long time that I am ovulating like this naturally. Anyway, he wants to see me next week to discuss. Also thinks these 'sacs' are not much to worry about about...

I supposed starting now or tomorrow evening I will be officially on the 2WW with everyone else...and now the dreaded question: to take the progesterone tabs or not? ?(

I took my trigger shot 24 hours ago...wonder if I'll get any ovulation pain ?( will have to wait and see. We too tried naturally as advised by the nurse...she said that way you'll never know whether it was the IUI or ttc naturally if you get pg.

Were you advised to take the pessaries? or are they leaving it up to you?

HI GEORGE1: Welcome and you will feel right at home here :D The IUI is pretty much the way Clairey bell explained it. I used a pen thingy for my injections, its called the Purgeon Pen. It`s medication to make your ovaries produce more follies. They weren`t so bad :snigger: I think that they should be able to track what side you will ovulate from. You might have to ask them at your first visit. GOOD LUCK!

CLAIREYBELL: WOW so cool :happy: I`m glad every thing went well for your IUI, sounds great!!! Good to hear your PMA :D I hope to see some BFP`s soon. XX

CHARLIE: Sorry to hear that you are still having horrible cramping.. I`m sending you lots of babydust

SBRUNO: Congrats on your ovulation and how fun to be trying naturally :snigger: I don`t know if you should take the progesterone tabs, what did they say??? I heard they are good for making a nice environment for the follies XX

Hi LOU LOU: WElcome and sorry to hear about your failed IUI XX

Lyndsey - so sorry to hear of your BFN hun. Will you be going for another cycle of IUI?

Hi LouLou and welcome...of course sometimes it can be down to luck as even fertile couples only have a 25% chance every month. Did you get any kind of indication as to why its not working or is it just a case of being unlucky? Were your follies growing naturally..did they check you were ovulating? If for any reason you may be failing because something is not working as it should I would def try an assisted cycle...good luck and hope you get your BFP soon.

When I had my IUI done yest my DH asked the nurse if it does ever work first time...of course we know that it does as some of our ladies on here were lucky first time....the nurses reply to his question was that yes it does happen but most often it works 3rd or 4th time. She said the only explanation she could think of was that the body is more used to whats going on by then...who knows if this is medically correct but sounded like it made sense. She did say that everyone is different and of course for some people it will work first try.

LOU LOU: The clinic i went to told me that we should try 3 IUI and then we should move onto IVF. All of the IUI`s will be medicated with the Purgeon pen. With my first IUI i conceived but in the end the egg didn`t implant so ended in a micro pregnancy.This usually happens because there was something wrong with the egg. That`s their opinion anyway...
They say that by doing medicated IUI there are more chances to conceive then without the medication. If there is no specific reason why you are not getting pregnant then maybe you should move on to IVF and i`m sure you will get your BFP :D
I know that all of this can get soooooooooooooo fustrating. But keep trying :D

Ah! Help! I've ovulated and now I have spotting! What is this? Is this ovulation bleeding? Maybe I had an ovarian cyst burst? Anybody had this before...I did experience that ovulation pain 2 nights ago.. I wish I can have a webcam implanted inside my uterus/ovaries so I can always see what is going on! :cross:

Kayjay - yes, we've paid for 3 cycles. I've got an NHS IVF consultation appt in a couple of weeks though so not sure whether we'll put off trying the last cycle of IUI until after we've tried IVF? Not sure. Decisions decisions.

SBruno - hun follow this link...sounds positive!

http://www.justmommies.com/articles/ovulation-spotting.shtml

Lyndsey - you may as well try IUI in between going to your IVF appt...I guess the IVF consultation will be just that and they wouldn't plan on starting tx straight away so no harm in trying IUI one last time esp as you've paid for it. Whatever your decision I wish you all the best and hope I'll be hearing of your BFP real soon here.

Little - how you doing hun? What's happening with you? x

hsg went well

hello girls

posted my update of hysteropigiogram hsg in the wrong forum. Im still learning and thanx to Indie for re-directing me back here!
HSG was painful... I :bawl: for 20 sec as the dye was injected! It was a relief when they showed me on screen the dye spilling over indicating my tubes were fine. Minus one problem!
Now drinking fertili tea and taking vitamins... before initial consultation for iui at chelsea and westminster on the 24th of march... 24 days to go. Does anyone have a rough idea how long it took from consultation with doc to starting treatmentt?

Hope you are all well :smile:
