Any other same sex couples TTC via IUI?

Postby jenna1208 » Mon Nov 28, 2016 10:28 pm

I'm 26yo, will have been with my lady for 9 yrs in may. We have been ttc for a few months now and I just did iui #2 Nov 8th but received a BFN. I have no fertility issues and am generally healthy. Just looking for other couples going through the same process. Any success stories or tips with iui and after how many tries. Also wondering if I should move on to IVF. Any and all advice is welcome! Thanks! Just trying to stay positive and find motivation...

Hi Jenna! I am sorry to hear about your BFN for #2. My wife and I have been together for a little over 8 years, married for a little over 1 and have been TTC since July. I have an 8-year old son from a previous relationship, so I would assume everything is working correctly - ha! We did IUI #1 in August, which turn out in BFN - then I had some polyps removed after they did a hysteroscopy, and I am currently 14dpiui of IUI #2. If this round doesn't work, I think we will try 2-3 more times and then that is that, with no fertility issues it should happen - but if it doesn't, then it wasn't meant to be!
Me - 27 // DW - 34
DS - 8
IUI #1 (8/13/16) - BFN - Femara Only
IUI #2 (11/15/16)- BFN - Clomid 25mg/ Ovidrel
IUI #3 (12/13/16) - BFN - Clomid 25mg/ Ovidrel
IUI #4 (3/1/17) - BFN - Femara 5mg / Ovidrel
IUI #5 (3/31/17) - BFN - Femara 5mg / Ovidrel
IUI #6 (5/27/17) - BFN - Femara 5mg / Ovidrel
IUI #7 (8/8/2017) - .... - Femara 5mg / No Trigger

Hey! Yep, my wife and I just started TTC this last month and got a BFN. I think we are going to try again in the beginning of the year. Getting a BFN hit me harder than I thought it would so I think we both decided a break would be good!

Hey guys !

I am on CD4 of my 5th cycle. My partner and I have been together for almost 4 years. Other than my " advanced maternal age" I have no known issues. I am 39. I started this process in march of thIs year. On my first cycle I got my BFP but had a missed miscarriage at 7 weeks. All other cycles have been BFN. My RE says due to my age and low lab numbers I am not a candidate for IVF. So, this IUI is my last chance. I do have one beautiful little 3 year old boy that was adopted at birth. I am on new meds this cycle, she added letrozole instead of clomid and changed the day of my gonal-f injections. I am hoping for good results :) luck to you all !
IUI #1 - March 2016 BFP - but MMC at 7 weeks
IUI #2- August 2016 BFN
IUI #3 - September 2016 BFN
IUI #4 - November 2016 BFN
IUI #5 - Coming soon December 2016
*all cycles with Clomid/Letrozole , Gonal-f and Ovidrel

thanks for replying boatlife and I really hope you get a BFP! I think we will try 2 more times and maybe 1 round IVF. If that doesn't work we'll probably wait a while before trying again (It's a pretty pricey deal)

Kduncan Yes getting a BFN is discouraging. I took it harder the second time around. But keep your hopes up and stay positive! I wish you the best and hope you too recieve a BFP!

Hi everyone! My wife and I started trying 2 months ago. Two cycles of IUI that did not work. Trying for round 3 next month. Taking a little break now to go on vacation. Good luck to all of you!
