inbetween cycles .... how long to wait

greetings people ...

have been away for a while ... but i'm back again now with another question (yet again)

i had a chemical pregnancy with my last iui .... i found out on the 1st of july that i had dropped the embryo ... fell ill with an awful virus the same day and am barely recovered now .... finished with an almost normal period (too much info?), which lasted about 4 days ...

what i need to know is how long should one wait before trying again ?

emotionally i just want to go ahead because i feel like atleast i'm trying ... my doctor says that its a really positive thing that i got pregnant on my first try with iui ... even if it ended up sad in the end

what i want to know is how long have people waited in between iui's?

any input would be most helpful ....

Hi Hoopoe,

Sorry to hear about your last attempt at IUI.
I had IUI last month but unfortunately it didn't work for me. I got my period on the 4th July and am having the IUI again this friday. And if that doesn't work I'll be having it for another two consecutive months after that!!
I think it really depends on how you feel. But personally I would say go for it.

Hope this helps and wishing you the best of luck :smile:

Hi, hun - how long you wait between goes varies from clinic to clinic and based on what meds you were on. I used Clomid and Gonal F and did consecutive cycles with no breaks between except for my surgery and one that I requested as I had exams to write. Others on similar regimes have had to wait for one normal AF (in other words a one cycle break) and those who have had to downreg have had to have up to 2 or 3 cycle breaks between IUIs.
Good luck on whatever you decide, Hun
