New to IUI

Hi, my wife and I have just got a letter for our first appointment to start IUI - It is through a NHS womans clinic. Can anyone that's been through the IUI process let us know what to expect. Thanks:)

Hi and welcome Miapiper :)
You can join us in the September IUI post if you'd like! If you have any specific questions though, I could answer here since I've done quite a few, in the last two years. When is your first appointment? Have you already discussed different protocols (meds)?
Take care!

hi Mia, I can imagine it must be exciting for you to embark on this journey. at least that was what I felt. I'm on my first try of iui. last month I took clomid from days 2 to 7 and had 6 follicles, 3 on each side. however iui was cancelled. this cycle i took 5 mg of letrozole instead, with a ultrasound scan on day 12 to check on the growth of the follicles. I had one lead follicle at 20 mm so i triggered on day 12 itself. iui was scheduled two days later.
if this is ur first time, u will most likely be taking oral medication like clomid or letrozole.
but jus curious, have u guys done the check ups and hsg yet?
