Mah7437....Your post sounds promising! My 1st IUI was successful. It didn't stick, but it did work. My advise is to do your best to relax and think positive! Never underestimate the power of positive thought!

Fingers crossed for you!

I feel awful. This afternoons cramps have led to a bleed that mimics my AF. I am distraught but at 10dpiui feel it is really early for a bleed. Not sure what to do now. Am i definately not pregnant??

If I don't start AF I will retest tomorrow (16dpiui).

Sorry to hear about that S3rlca. I am not sure about that. Is that bleeding like your normal AF flow?

Iking, I'm sorry you had a rough time yesterday. Take your time to reset but never give up. Sometimes walking away from situation helps. However, not having AF yet doesn't mean you are totally out. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
I made in my head that I give a try 3 attempts and then take a step back. I did #1 and wait for results. It's been hard. Hugs to you my dear.

It is lighter than my normal AF but i would not describe it as spotting or pink in colour. You should test again. You can still be pregnant if there is no AF. Think i may just do my test anyway tomorrow if the bleeding slows down. :-(

S3r1ca you could have an implantation bleeding. If you are 10dpiui you are right there. What's your avg. length of luteal phase ?

One of the frustrating things for me is that I have "thin" PCOS, so my cycles are so irregular I never know when I am "late". I can go months without a period.

I am not sure since this is my first time doing iui and previous ovulation testing has never worked for me. All i know is that im not due for another 8 days according to my cycle length.

S3r1ca I know that 11-16days luteal phase is ideal. I was using opk and doing tons of stuff before I finally decided on IUI. I use an app to keep track, and it does amazing job for me even with different cycle lengths. I would recommend to test opk even if you take break from doing IUI. It's for your benefit. It makes things easier yet cheaper while doing IUI so I could prove to doc I don't need extra meds to help me ovulate or to time it. Paying out of pocket for infertility is a killer and most of us know it too well.
Anyhow, keep watching what happens. I cheer for you‼️

I tried using opk from january this year and never got a positive reading on the kits. So had to have meds to help me ovulate. Im still bleeding now so think this cycle will result in a BFN. Thank you anyhow.

So, I think I might be out for this cycle. Today I am 13dpiui and 14dpo, no significant symptoms. I cheated and tested today only to see a BFN. Tomorrow is the day I'm supposed to test, but I don't think this is my cycle. AF due in a couple days, roughly. I'm far from clockwork, but the meds have gotten me close to regular.

I'm thinking of looking into integrating some of my cultural traditional medicine into the mix. I did that a few months after a miscarriage 9 yrs ago and a few months later found out I was pregnant with baby #2. Just as important to make sure the spirit and mind are healthy along with the body. Good luck to everyone, keep me posted. Hope to see some BFPs soon!

I had a 22mm and a 24.8mm follicle the day of my trigger shot!! Stay positive. My lining was 11mm the day of the IUI!!! It works :) It worked for us like a charm!

I woke up this morning (9dpiui) and I was experiencing an increase in smells.... Some cramping in back and lower abdomen. And now I have a cold! But so far BFN...

So happy for you pixiedust! When did you get your BFP?

Hey all, I am 16 dpiui. Still a BFN, but no AF. I am considering my first IUI a fail. I plan to take a break for August, a total break.

Good luck to all of you.
