i just finished  my 5th iui.  still in the tww. ( two week wait) My hubby gives me the shots. the tops of the legs is best for me but some women like it in the belly. both are options.    I hate shots too!!! U have to get your blood ( b/w)drawn every few days and an ultra sound( us). U can watch things grow and thicken up. that part is neat.



A little secret of mine and dh is i go in the collection room with him and we have fun.  Trust me it helps both of u and it gives u something to look forward to.  This is the one part we get excited about!!!!

feel free to ask me any questions u want to. U will get into it and wonder about follicle size etc... Just ask away.

Injections are no big deal.  My H likes to play doctor  :) but I actually found that doing injections yourself is easier.  

Good luck to you!!  Sorry about the wait...  I hope IUI works for you.

1/4 work. U never do iui the day u do us. U take shots/ meds and go in for check up us once your folicles hit a good size then the dr. does the trigger shot. most res if u are just doing 1 iui and dh's sper count is not a big issue have u bd( baby dance=sex) the night  do the trigger . then  a little under 36 hours later they bring dh ( darling husband) in to ge sperm and wash it. then a few hours ater that u go in and they use  speculum  and a  plastic or metal tip cather to inject the sperm directly into your cervix. then u lay there.

so far i have had 2 out of 5 work. This last one failed.

I hope u get a bfp( big fat Pos) on your first one.
