IUI after laparoscopy, outcomes?

Postby geeky_gab » Fri Jul 21, 2017 3:36 pm

Good afternoon ladies,

I've been active in this forum mostly last fall, when I was trying for IUI. We have done 4 unsuccessful rounds so far.

Last February, my doctor recommended that I undergo laparoscopy to remove a 7 cm (2.7 inches) pedunculated fibroid. The fibroid was completly outside my uterus, therefore easy to remove. I had quite a few symptoms from it since it was pressing on my bladder. The operation on May 29th was a success beyond expectations since they also removed a pedunculated cyst on my right tube as well (and most importantly) as stage 1 endo that had not yet been found/diagnosed.

Follow-up doctor's appointment was today. We're up and ready, back on Femara for IUI #5. I expect CD1 to be on August 1st.

Has anyone gone through similar situations? How did you manage? How did the following IUI(s) go?

Glad to be back ladies, looking forward to spending the TWW with you all :)

Geeky gab I too have fibroids. I have had 2 hysteroscopes and one laparoscopy. They removed 7 growths from my uterus 3 years ago and I have been told if I ever get pregnant a vaginal birth is not possible. I have PCOS too but still trying iui and staying positive. I'm on cycle 3 as you know from our other group chat but have decided this will be my last go. I may consider one try at ICSI or IVF.
