March 2016 IUI

Postby Shalu2014 » Tue Mar 01, 2016 12:09 pm

Hi.. I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I am TTC a little over an year now. I have mild PCOS which means My periods are irregular and I do get positive OPK tests. My OB/GYN initially put me on metformin for three months but, that did not change my erratic cycle. So she put me on 50mg of clomid along with metformin for five cycles. My cycle was like a clock work with clomid but, we could not get pregnant naturally. My husband's sperm analysis results are very good and she also ordered a hysterosonogram. The results look fine but I feel clomid makes my CM dry. So I took a break and got off of all medication for three months and then saw a RE to try IUI. Feb 29 is my CD1. I am going for a HSG on march 7th and then IUI as well. He put me on 100mg of clomid that I have to take from CD3 thru CD 5. I am looking for ladies going thru the same phase post anything that is worth knowing.

I will! Just know that with the clomid you are still in a good position. You still have lots of options available. I am starting to run out of options and I cant afford IVF. Yesterday was a very emotional day for me as i thought my cycle was going to be cancelled. Good luck with everything!!

Hi ladies.

Brand new to this. I had my 2nd iui on Tues 1st March so now on 2 ww.
I am finding it hard today and talking myself out of any hope. Silly cos not out yet but it's hard to imagine it coming good.
Been trying for 3 1/2 years. Had a myomectomy in December so been through a lot. My little sister also had her first baby in November.
We haven't told anyone that we've had the treatment this time so really need some friends to talk to.

Hi. I have done my IUI 6 days back. I am sometimes feeling cramps on my abdomen. Feeling tired. Some worst smelling farts are coming.
Background: My husband sperm count is good. 107 million processed sperm inserted during Iui. I have 2 follicles on left ovary. 19 and 22 mm. It was a medicated IUI. My husband suffers from ED. So we went for IUI

Now, please tell me what are the chances of pregnancy.

Well, I have no idea what the chance of pregnancy is. And hi to both of you. I had my IUI 4 days ago and I also am feeling awful. I cramped the whole day afterward. My stomach has been swollen since the day of my IUI. IT HURTS!! As I sit at work right now my pants are unbuttoned and I have to walk very slow. I am also starting to talk myself out of it. I had about 10 follicles. I dont know the size of them at the time of the IUI but they should have been around 20mm. We had 40 million sperm. Doesn't seem like much at all next to your 107 million lol.

What I do know is that I have a 25% chance of multiples. My ovaries are very overstimulated.

Hi ladies.. I see most of you are in the two week wait period and it seems like forever. I remember myself being in office and a small change like dehyration made me google if that was related to pregnancy. I slowly realized that every body is different and they respond differently. I used to take my mind off by watching tv till late hours just to take my mind off of my body.
I wish the very best to every one and may all this be worth when u have a beautiful baby.

BTW I had my HSG today. The whole procedure was less than 10 minutes and went very smooth. I felt severe cramps during the dye injection for about two minutes. The nurse was with me and she was very caring while I was in pain. She said she had undergone this before and it will be worth the pain. The radiologist who did the HSG was quick and explaining me what he was doing all the way. However, I expected to see the screen which showed the dye going thru the pelvic areas but, unfortunately there was one screen and it was turned towards the doctor. They also placed an x-ray right above my abdomen for imaging , thats one more thing i did not expect. So, i was not able to see a thing. After the HSG, the doc said that my tubes are open and I really felt the pain was worth it. I had to tell u , when i first entered the x-ray room, i doubted if I was in the wrong place and also why would a radiologist do it. But when the nursed explained me it did clarify my doubts.
I took two tablets of 200 mg motrin an hour before the procedure. When i reached home i was very drowsy probably due to the pills and fell asleep. When i woke up everything was fine. Now cramps, bleeding nothing.

Awesome HSG results!! That nurse was so right, it is very worth it. All of this pain i have been going through, totally worth it...i think LOL. The closer i get to possibly actually having a baby after all of this time I am scared.

Welcome Nickysy! You are both in a good position fresh out from the HSG. Best of luck on that! Unfortunately i was put on birth control right after my HSG and it broke my heart.
Today I am 5dpo, 7dpt (trigger) and i am feeling excited. Wonder if tommorrow my little bean will implant.

Be prepared for a little cramping afterward. I hurt about an hour after the IUI and i have been in pain since then. It has finally started to subside today and I am 5dpIUI.
