Hi, I'm new here. I'm 41 and try to conceive using IUI. Until Dec. 1st my hubby and I thought we had no hope. I was diagnosed with PCOS at 21, and at 24 DH had stage 4 testicular cancer. Well given my age I figured we would be using a donor, but my tests showed I had a great level of eggs, and he has a very normal sperm count. My HSG showed that my uterus and tubes were clear. So Dr. gave me a script for clomid 150mg days 3-7, and scheduled ultrasound for day 11, that day I was told I had 3 very good follicles and some smaller ones on the other side. He told me to take Ovidrel on day 13. A few hours before taking the shot I started feeling ov pain, this again happened 1 time the day after the shot (day 14), and again the day of the IUI which was December 19th (day 15), the day after the IUI I had ov pain from the other side (day 16), I began prometrium 200 mg 1xdaily due to risk of miscarriage...I tested out my cycle and the hcg from the ovidrel is out of my system as of today 8dpiui. Two days ago on Christmas Eve I began to feel very weak and dizzy, and extremely tired, today my boobs began to hurt, and once again I became extremely exaughsted and fell asleep on the couch for an hr and a half...this isn't like me...I'm just curious if this is normal not to have symptoms and then suddenly have them, wondering if this is good thing?

Boatlife, KC, Rachel...so sorry that things didn't work out this time around. I hope you are managing to cope with those painful feelings.

Skeetersmama...sounds very promising to me! When are you planning to test?

So an update from me....

DH couldn't wait for 14dpiui to test. !3dpiui was Christmas Day. So he woke me up early in the morning and I we got our BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tested on a dollar store cheapie, a regular First Response, and a First Response digital. Then yesterday morning I took another First Response and a Clear Blue digital....all have been POSITIVE! I went to the RE this morning for my first Beta and I'm waiting anxiously to hear my numbers. This was our last round before moving to IVF, so I'm completely relieved. I'm also terrified that it won't stick, but praying and trying to take it easy. I still don't think I've completely processed this yet.

Hello everyone:

I need some advise from all of you. My progesterone levels are really low. I haven't been able to see the the doctor. I bought a progesterone cream to start bringing those levels up.

Do you think that is safe.

Thanks for your help.

December IUI

Postby Jeshickah10 » Tue Dec 27, 2016 8:22 pm

Good day Ladies,
I'm new to discussion boards so please bare with me. I don't know all the lingo. We did our first IUI on 12/23. Now for the dreaded TWW.

We have been trying to conceive since 2014. We had a early pregnancy loss in 3/2015 from natural conception. Tried clomid x3 in 10-12/2015 with no success. Saw a Fertility specialist in Jan 2016 decided to try IUI in April but conceived naturally in March. Had a 2nd M/C @ 10 weeks. We took some time off and have come back to try IUI. I have mild PCOS (left ovary only not right) and my husband has mild male infertility with morphology issues.

We decided to try a more aggressive route with IUI plus min stim. I'm 30 and my husbands 31 both American European decent. My LMP was 12/10, my birthday. I started clomid 100mg on the 12th after US showed 28 follicles on the left (as expected) and 14 on the right. I started Gonal-f 100mg subQ on the 17th for 4 days had US on 12/22 showed 1 follicle at 20mm, 1 @ 17mm, and 2 @ 15mm. Doctor said we'ld count 3 mature follicles. Said with these numbers muktiples would be 20-30% if conceied. Did IUI on 12/23. My husbands count was 59 million. So from what I've read it seems like the numbers are in our favor. I started Progesterone 100mg twice a date on 12/26. My last pregnancy my progesterone was very low and had no intervention until 8 weeks.

I'm excited but scared out of my mind to go through a 3rd M/C. Any words of encouragement or suggestions are welcome. I'm very open to learn as much as I can. I hated research in college but I find myself doing just that with statistics to back it. Maybe a bit of an over share. Like I said I'm new to this and looking for help getting through this TWW. TIA.

I've research a lot and everything I've seen says there is no harm from using take progesterone before and during pregnancy. I'm on 200mg daily after my iui on 12/23.

The only issue I've noted is it can delay your cycle if you do not conceive and intensify your symptoms ( bloating, cramping, breast tenderness)

Good luck.

Thanks Jeshickah10

This is all so confusing. I have not been successful with the 2 iui that we have done. In the last one we discover that from the iui to a week my levels went down to 3.

So I wanted to be ready for iui #3 I have a appointment with my doctor on Friday to see what we can do.

This is all so frustrating.

Hi ladies,Im new here! I just had my first IUI on December 18th, its been 10 days since and Im on progesterone and estrace pills both 2x a day. Now for the tmi, on 8dpiui I awoke in the night with cramping and I was completely soaked down there, I thought oh man af showed! Ran into the bathroom to find that it wasn't af but a clear water type discharge that was super sticky but it was everywhere! Has this ever happened to anyone? I called my nurse and she assured me that it wasn't anything to be worried about and to keep an eye on the color of it. Im still having so much discharge that I have to wear a pad to keep up with it. I hope Im not the only one this has happened too and I hope its a good sign as af is due tomorrow. Bloodtest on the 3rd. Fx crossed!

16dpiui (IUI #2 w/ clomid 100mg) and 31 months trying and I just had my first BFP!

i cant tell anyone else yet but I am so excited! I hope all goes well with my blood test...can't even schedule it until Jan 3. Please say a prayer this baby is here to stay and I will continue to keep all of your journey to conception/healthy delivery in my prayers. Had very minor symptoms- got sick the day after IUI sore throats and runny nose, got huge weird painful thick zit on my jawline and I've never had that before...tender breasts and period like cramping in the last 4 days I thought for sure I was getting AF. I tested 11dpiui and it was completely negative. So excited and scared and hopeful!
