August IUI

Postby Juls86 » Sat Jul 23, 2016 1:58 pm

I'm starting letrozole/femara with IUI this month. Anyone else doing the same?

Having major hot flashes on the femara... on it days 2-6.

29 year old TTC for 15 months, have had 3 5-6 week misses, recently diagnosed with PCOS even though I'm thin and not insulin resistant.

Hi Juls,

My cycle started on July 11th and I'm CD 16 right now and I have my first IUI insemination tomorrow morning at 1145am. I did Femara 5mg days 5-9 and Dexamethasone 2mg days 5-14. I did the Ovidrel shot last night!

Good luck!

Hi Ladies!

I am new here - although I have been stalking these forums for about a month - but thought this is the perfect place to post my 1st post, as I will hopefully be doing an IUI in mid-August!

How are you guysfeeling so far?

Baby dust to all!

Hi,i am so glad to find a site where i can talk to others who understand the pressures. I am in cycle #1 of iui and finding the 2ww hard. I have never been pregnant and am using donor sperm. I am 6dpiui today and driving myself crazy looking for symptoms. I know the period between 6-12 days is most important implantation but not sure if i have had any key symptoms yet?? My PT is not due until 5th aug.

Hi S3r1ca!

What did you think of the actual procedure of the IUI - was it painful or long? I am using donor sperm as well and am currently just waiting for AF to show to get this whole thing started! Are you keeping yourself busy during the 2ww? Just try to relax and let nature take it's course! ;)

Hi sun and sand, the procedure did not take long at all. It was just like a smear test except you check the vile of sperm and its details. You then sign off to say it is correct. The stirrups are in more of a crouching position so knees are higher up. The speculum feels cold but i did not feel anythig else. I had mild cramping pains, sore breasts and was very gassy for 2 days after. The 2ww is going slowly but this site is helping me a lot. You will be fine good luck.

Does anyone know if sex is allowed during the 2ww if donor sperm is used?

Hi ladies,

I got good news today that I have one follicle ready to go. Will do trigger tomorrow night and IUI Monday morning! This is my first IUI cycle too. Excited that the meds worked so far, but trying to stay cautiously optimistic.

Have any of you had any side effects from the trigger shot? Just curious.

Good luck to all!! It'll be nice to have buddies during the 2WW!

Juls i have had symptoms but they could be due to the trigger shot or early pregnancy since they mimic each other. Very sore swollen boobs, gassy, cramping pains, frequent urination and bloating. I had these symptoms on different days and combinations for the last 8 days.

Thanks S3! That's good to know. When I've had Implantation in the past I had Cramping and spotting (similar feel to the start of my period) but I'm not sure if the symptoms will be the same having taken the letrozole. And not everyone has symptoms of Implantation from what I've read. Sending baby dust your way!

Here we are! Did 5 days old clomid (d5-9) and ovidril shot last night at 9:30pm. We have our second IUI scheduled for 9:30am tomorrow, then we have the dreaded two week wait!! Hopefully, it goes the way we want this time! :) Baby dust to everyone!

Chuchu / tigerb5, i am now on 10dpiui treatment and i found it easier to keep busy after 5 days rest. I am feeling positive today having some cramps that feel different to my normal period pains today. Fingers crossed. 4 days till PT :-)

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??
