January 2017 IUI

Postby PixieDust2016 » Thu Dec 29, 2016 10:23 am

Anyone doing IUI in January?
This will be my 4th round.
AMH and FSH are excellent, both ovaries work well, good open tubes, normal uterus and very regular hormone levels. DH has excellent sperm count and motility. Our last IUI, we had 140+ million with 99% motility. Unknown infertility for us.

IUI #1 - BFP, great betas and progesterone was over 40 without any supplements, but had a miscarriage a few weeks later.

IUI # 2 - First cycle after miscarriage - hormones were still adjusting. No luck.

IUI #3 - I got really sick with food poisoning during the 2ww, and wound up in the hospital. Never got a chance to do a beta before AF started (4 days late), but I was very sick.

We decided to take a break from IUIs and had a wonderful Disney vacation. It was a perfect Christmas. Trying IUI #4 in a few weeks. Still waiting for AF. Anyone on this boat with me?

Hi Pixie!
Good to see you again. Glad to hear you had a nice vacation :)
AFM, you'll see in my signature, we decided to take a break after the u/s for IUI #5 showed a cyst (or a really big follicule). The RE didnt want to go through with the procedure. That was early december. We decided to take a break for December and start back late January, when AF shows up. At first, it was hard to "let go" of those two months. However, it turned out to be a well needed break for both of us.
Hope you are well and that 2017 brings love and joy to you and to all the hopeful ladies here on the TWW forums. :)

Hi ladies! I'm new to the group and currently waiting for a call back with my December IUI #1 beta results which are most likely negative since the home tests were all negative. So I will be starting injections around Jan 3rd. I was debating whether to go straight to ivf. My insurance covers two rounds of iui but I still need to pay deductibles which reset in January.

Here we go again ladies!
I am currently on cycle day 4. Next ultrasound is scheduled for the 7th and expecting iui on the 9th.
This month I will be taking letrozole since the clomid thinned out my lining too much last cycle. Has anyone used the letrozole? If so what side effects did you have?

Baby dust to all of us!

Just did an IUI today using letrazole. My side effects were hot flashes and general crankiness.
Now I'm in the dreaded wait!

Hi SA! Nice to see you again.

I had much less side effects from Letrozole. I am on Clomid now and going crazy. Moreover, seems like Clomid makes me do cysts. Letrozole just gave me headaches, and not even every cycle I took it. I had many follies each round, I hope it works well for you!

I had my IUI on Sunday (Happy New Year!), and am in the horrid wait. Started progesterone suppositories last night. Hoping for a positive January for us all!

Leslie, welcome to the TWW! I hope you have a positive outcome, and that time is going by quickly for you! One of my friends is pregnant with twins after using Letrozole, so I am wishing you a good cycle!

Geeky, we are on Clomid together. Today was my third pill. I am just taking 50mg. I am currently fighting a cold, and I have no symptoms from Clomid because I am too busy sneezing and coughing! LOL! I am hoping you have a positive outcome this month. Are you going in for IUI?

Deb, how did your beta go?

SA, I am going to be just a few days behind you! Let me know how things go!

Welcome, everyone. I hope this is the great start for 2017 that we have all been praying for!

Never give up..
Rf should be here next week and then we take it from there. Not sure if my medication will be in on time since i order online for the inyectable.

Thanks for the wishes mglupe, all the same to you *hugs* :)

Pixie, my IUI would probably have been today, had I not taken a break since early December. I am skipping Clomid this time around (yippee!) and going back for a scan on CD2 which will probably be around January 24th-ish, maybe earlier. I am keeping my fingers crossed for that cyst to be gone and only then will I start Clomid again... for our 5th IUI in early Feb.

How does Clomid "treat you" ? AFM, it drove me nuts. I have never been so impatient in my life. Then again, I was living a terrible situation at work, so circumstances were not helping.

I wish you all the best for this round and the year to come :)

For me, clomid made me a devil. I was miserable and was extra cranky and hot-flashy. This go-round (10 years later), I did letrazole, and had a few headaches but that was it. Last cycle, we didn't go through with the IUI (unmedicated) because I had fluid in my uterus which would prevent implantation. My dr. said that Clomid may cause it to happen even more, but letrazole would not.

Now on day 4 of the wait... it's killing me!

Welcome back, MGlupe - baby wishes for you!

Geeky - Clomid hasn't done anything bad for me. I usually feel fine, with an occasional headache and ovulation pains. Last time we had 4 big follicles, so that will definitely be uncomfortable for a few days! My poor ovaries! :)

Hi ladies, long time lurker, first time poster.
Me 38 4 days ago . DH 40. Unexplained infertility.
I had my first iui in July last year but sadly lost the babe at 5.5 weeks. Now round two yesterday.

Cd 1-3 nothing
Cd 4 - 8 Begin stimulating with 150 iu of menapor
Cd 9 - 75 iu of menapor as my follicles on cd 8 were 14-15mm
Cd10 - no stims
Cd 11 - trigger shot 500 iu of Gonal-f
Cd 12 - boobs really tender in the morning. And my left ovary feels raw like an egg is rubbing in there. Had iui. DH had to give 2 samples since the dr said the second sample produces better sperm. DH sperm after washing was 25m viable sperm. After 10m with a pillow under my hips, I went to work. Dr said we should BD this evening and the next day and then every other day after
Prescribed Cyclogest progesterone pessaries to be inserted morning and evening

Took a hpt yesterday and today to make sure the trigger is out of my system. Yesterday was a faint positive and today's was negative. Now I know it's out of my system, any positives are legit!
