geeky - probably just from the insertion catheter! Also, if it hurt a little bit more this time they may have had a hard time finding yoru cervical os or perhaps they poked extra hard at your endometrium which will cause cramps and irritation. I doubt it is something to be concerned about - do not worry (says the worrier ;))!!!!!!!!!!

Neg test this AM (wandfo and hospital grade test) with FMU, ladies. DPO17. At this point, it has never been clear if it was the trigger still hanging around or a chemical pregnancy. Never did a beta with REI due to work schedule. Alas. AF due tomorrow. Will update you guys. If she comes, I am planning for IUI late Nov with a switch fom Clomid to letrazole for concern for decreased CM (literally did not have any EWCM with Clomid)/borderline EMS (8mm). I feel so attached to all of you - should I be posting on November board if I do Nov IUI? Where will u ladies go if you get a BFN?

Even though I feel like I'm out this month, I am wishing BFPs to everyone else!

Geeky, could they have had to pinch your cervix? They had to do that for two of my IUIs because I was too tense and they couldn't get the catheter through. Both times I had spotting (one time even kinda heavier bleeding) for one or two days and slight cramps.

Puertocan, sorry to hear about your negative test :-(

Good question about the board - should we just stay in the October thread or all switch to the November one?

Hello,
I had my first IUI on Oct but ended up having AF on 10/31/2016. I just had a doctor appointment today to discuss fertility options. I was informed that I had mild PCOS which causes me have abnormal ovalation. Also my DH had10 million sperm count on last IUI with very low mobility. Doctor suspected that he has varicocele which prevents sperm mobility. However, It may be fixable by doing operation.
Doctor gave us two options :
First - DH sees the specialist to solve low mobility issue then do IUI again.
Second - directly jump into IVF. I feel the doctor strongly recommended this one as we both have issue in our end and the chance to get pregnant is lean.
We are tend to do the IVF but want to ask it is too soon to do IVF? I saw people in the forum doing IVF after at least three tries of IUI. Thank you!

Hi snoxx, if it was me i will probably get my dh check and if the surgery for him is a good 80% i will go that route first. Mild pcos can also be treated with stimulation, clomid or femara. Now if you can affort going directly with ivf. Hey i would they will directly put his sperm in the eggy ;) then implanted in your uterus.

More bad news to post - AF came for me yesterday.

Sweetpeabutternut: Sorry for your news. :( Keep your chin up. Now that you have done 2 IUIs it wouldn't be unreasonable to go to IVF. Sending virtual hugs to you and your DH. Have a glass of wine, enjoy your NYC trip, and think positive thoughts about next cycle! See you on the November board?

Hi ladies yes I'm half way there 9dpiui. Today i had a biosy of my lining in my uterus was a little crampy all day like menstral cramps took two tylenol and fall asleep thd rest of the afternoon. My boobies are starting to hurt and feeling more bloated than before mostlikely i will bleam the endometrin that im using2 to 3 times a day. I will test tomorrow moring to see if the tigger shot has left my system. Other than that nothing to report. Doc wants me to do blood work on the 18th of november to see if im positive, by then i know if im out. Im really trying to stay positive but its hard after 7 iui. Oh and he also check my uterus to see how much it was messuring and at 9 day post ovulation it did not grow anymore than what it was at iui day 9.4mm
Babydust ladies and thank you for your words of incoragements it help alot. God bless
