Anyone sucussfull with IUI? Also does it hurt, and how much does it cost.. I live in NJ

Hi, my insurance covered the IUI. Did you check to see if yours does? I thought it did in NJ (although I could be wrong). No, it didn't hurt. Just some light cramps (like menstrual cramps) when they did it and a little after but that was all. What dosage of clomid are you on?
Good luck!!!


Sorry, meant to say to gig23 - November 29

Sorry I was answering you and I put your name in the "name" section.
Also, I was lucky and the first IUI I had worked. Baby dust to you!!!

Hi, gig23. I had one round of IUI and got pregnant. This was after my husband and I tried for 3 1/2 years on our own. Our issue was with his sperm...low motility and morphology even though he has a very high overall count. My IUI was slightly painful, but nowhere near as painful as my HSG. I did have some mild cramping for a couple of days, but nothing serious. I'm not sure of the exact cost because our insurance covered everything, but I think the cost of the IUI itself was around $300. That doesn't include the ultrasounds and bloodwork that I had done beforehand, or the medications (I took fertility meds to increase our odds even though I ovulate normally). Good luck!!
