I don't have any results yet, sorry.  As soon as my opk is positive I'll go in for IUI the next day.  The IUI should happen within the next 6 days.  We had one failed IVF fresh cycle and one succesful FET.  Now that we are tapped out financially we are trying IUI's.  Our RE recommended trying 6 times before giving up.  Before doing IVF we had done 4 or 5 IUI's that all failed.  I'm hoping we are not wasting our time as I'm turning 38 this year and DH is turning 45.

Are you doing an IUI soon?

No we did three IUI'S and attempted one but meds failed. then we did IVF. It failed also. We cant afford to do IVF again right now. I was just wondering anyone ever had results with IUI Afterwards. Its much more affordable but I see some women trying like 6 or 7 times and that adds up. The stuff is so expensive and insurance doesn't cover a dime.

I agree about the expense and we get zero help from insurance for IVF.  Fortunately our insurance covers 50% of the IUI cost and our RE did not recommend any med's this time around.  So each IUI will be $130 total cost.  6 of them is nothing compared to IVF.

I'm so sorry for all of the prior BFN's.  I hope you and I both get a BFP very soon!

Thank you! That means a lot! I hope you get a positive this time! That's great that your insurance covers the IUI. I wish ours did cause we prob would have kept trying if it  had! Let me know how it goes!

How is everything? Have you gotten your results yet?  This month I ovulated earlier than usual and started getting a crampy feeling in my side and it has continued. My period according to when I ovulated is due today or tomorrow. But I am giving it till next week just in case I misinterpreted the time I ovulated. Let me know how you are doing!

No luck this month.  AF came today with a vengeance.  Round 2 should be sometime mid-March. I hope you get some great news next week!
