any sucess with back to back iui's for ladies age 38-40 yrs old

i know that this question has been posted once before a while back... i just turned 40 yrs old and have tried 3 single iuis and when i go back in aug or early sept i will be doing the double iui, i was just wondering if there are any sucessful stories of any ladies that have tried the single iui with no sucess and then tried the back to back iui's and then have gotten preg.

Hello. Not to be a stick in the mud, but if you are serious about getting pregnant you need to be combining injectable drugs with your IUI's, and it wouldn't hurt to throw in acupuncture too. If a few cycles of stimulation drugs and IUI's don't work then move on to IVF right away. Doing IUI's without injectable stimulation (forget Clomid, it is for 30 year olds) is a waste of your valuable time and money. You still have a chance of success at 40, but every year after that it gets harder and harder if not impossible. If you haven't had your hubby/BF checked out then he should get a semen analysis too. Just telling it like it is. Good luck and baby dust to you!

UGH!! I am sooo sorry that I misunderstood. Thanks.Yes, I will let you know tomorrow what the doctor says.

My husband's chemo was for testicular cancer. We were told at the time that he was no longer viable, but apparently that changed. His counts are very low, but they have him on meds to help increase it.

I hope that we both have luck this next treatment! :)

I just figured out my misunderstanding. Someone by the nickname candybar is going through IUIs as well. She had a positive pregnancy test last night. In my quick glance this morning, I thought it was you. I am sorry!

I am just going to have hope that we will be in the same situation soon!

every thing that you just mentioned has been done and my meds are changed for this next cycle ... i have the injectables, and accupunture, the only thing that i havent done is the ivf and that is because the ins doesnt pay for it...so maybe one day they will ...can only hope ..

Hey there. I don't often check these threads, but I wanted to tell you that a friend of mine did back to back IUI's with drug stimming and on her 3rd month she conceived twins, a boy and girl. They are healthy, normal babies now about 1.5 years old. My RE was stunned by this story since he didn't have much faith in a 43 yr old getting pregnant at all! So, you just never know. I hope it works for you. Keep us updated. :)

ok well, i did my first session of the back to back iui and today i recieved the 2nd and in the past with the 3 single iui's i always had very very bad cramping during the insemination and then about an hour to two hours after i got home i had the worst cramping ever but with these 2 iui's i had no cramping during and/or after, i was told that the cramping actually pushes the sperm away from the eggs because it is because it is disturbing the cervix and it is just a reaction... she told me that due to not having no cramping during or after this my be a really good sign that "MAYBE" something took with her experience with other women... but i am now starting the 2ww and i go for the blood work on the 19th. i am going to TRY not to take any preg test along the way.... i am not getting my hopes up or down, i will just go about my daily routine... tiadreams i apprieciate the experience of your friend, i am so happy for her and if i could be so lucky with twins.. i would just love that 2 girls, 2 boys or one of each as long as the baby or babies are healthy i would be sooo soooo happy... i will keep everyone updated... good luck with everyone and pending families...
