iui questions

Postby Mrs.Stacy3343 » Mon Dec 12, 2016 4:13 pm

Today my hubby and I found out that we are most likely looking at starting iui. There is a male factor which I've heard is good for iui but my cm might be killing his sperm also. How often do they let you try iui? Is there a very high success rate?

My RE will let us do as many IUIs as we would like, but after 6 they told us there must be a deeper issue if it hasn't worked. I believe the percentages are ~20% depending on your age, health status, fertility issues, etc.

Can you try two cycles in a row?

Yes. We just did our 2nd IUI in November, and currently in the TWW of my 3rd IUI yesterday. Once we get the IUI done, we take a HPT 14 days later, and if it is positive we go in for a blood test. If it is negative, you wait for your cycle to begin and then go in for a CD3 US.
