Re: Question on IUI
Feb 11, 2004
Hi ladies -- best of luck on your IUIs! I've had 3 (paired with clomid). No luck yet, but we'll be doing more, this time paired with Follistim hormone shots. I hope yours are successful right out of the gate!

LisaJojo, I really don't have any answers to your question, but I was a little crampy myself (before and after) for my IUIs. Before fertility treatments, I always had such a good understanding and knowledge of my body, but as I started taking hormones and getting probed and poked, I lost a little bit of that control and understanding. Now sometimes I just shrug my shoulders when I'm feeling odd and chalk it up to the hormones. I know this probably doesn't relieve your concerns at all.... Can you call your RE?

Baby dust!

Hi stillwtg - congrats on starting your IUI - this is my first so I don't know how much I will be able to help but I will definitly do my best! For the most part things have been good. I feel moody and bloated from the injectibles (are you doing injectibles or clomid). After a few times it didn't bother me to give myself the shots, the needle is so small you don't feel it except the medicine going in burns a little. The first round of the IUI didn't happen for me, I took all the meds and then my RE said it wasn't going to happen that time (he said very rare). I was really devasted that we didn't even get the chance but then I started AF on CD17 (because of the meds it made me start sooner) and started up again and had my first IUI on Feb. 7. The procedure itself lasted 30 seconds. My husband had to give his donation and then an hour wait for the wash and 30 seconds for the IUI. I laid there for about 10 minutes and that was it!! Now I am just waiting...that is the hardest part. I really don't think I am pregnant. I feel like AF could get here at any moment. My RE said that I could start AF earlier if it turns out that I am not pregnant. Hope this helped you some!! Good luck to you and keep in touch and let me know what is happening with you!

Lisajojo - I forgot to ask you, what inectibles are you on? Follistim, by chance? I'd love to hear about your experiences with that. I've heard that the shots are much better than clomid -- you don't get so emotional and wacked out as you do on clomid. That's what I'm hoping. Clomid makes me stark raving mad. :)
