IUI question

Janet - October 20

If you can answer this question please assist. I will try to keep it brief. I've decided to try IUI; I made an appointment today. My next cycle is 11/01 and my predicted ovulation for next month is 11/14 - 11/16; is that enough time to have the procedure during my next ovulation?

I answered on the other thread. When is your appt though?

Are you taking meds as well, or will this be a natural cycle of IUI? How will you monitor your O? OPKs? I would think it would be enough time for you to have the IUI. Good luck, Janet! This is an exciting time for you.

Thanks Toni and Mega. This is my first time posting and I wasn't sure of the best way to post. My appointment is Wed 10/26. This is my first visit to the fetility specialist, I was referred by my obgyn.

My clinic monitored me and did a bunch of tests first before we decied togo with the iui. We ended up monitoring 2 months, checked the tubes, check the dh sperm counts,motility etc and all the bloodwork and ultrasounds to find out what my levels were. After 2 months of monitoring (and ttc since Jan) we were suggested the iui route-our ages are also a factor (over 40). I dont know if they will do an iui just because you want one, there is a lot to consider.

Thanks Isa. Let me back up a little. We've been ttc for 10 months, DH sperm count low and we're over 35. My doctor thought we should seek other options after 6 months of ttc but we held out.

Hey Janet, you sound like a good candidate. I hope your appt goes well -good luck and keep us posted on how it goes.

Good luck Janet. I can't wait to hear about how your appt. with the fertility specialist goes. I'm doing my first IUI on Monday. My DH has morphology issues & I have PCOS. We're so excited for our first cycle (& hopefully only cycle for now, at least). I feel like this will be our first real chance of conceiving. We're ttc #1, we've been trying for 14 months now.

Mega, I just wanted to wish you good luck with your IUI! We tried for 3 1/2 years on our own before finding out that my husband has severe morphology issues. They gave us a 5% chance of conceiving through IUI, and I still got pregnant on my first one, so I think you definitely have a good chance of success!

Thanks all and I will keep you posted. Good Luck Mega. Babydust....
