iui failed - trying other things

Aug 23, 2011 - 3 comments

I am just frustrated with my doctors, there are MANY tests they should have suggested before putting me on 100mg of Clomid for 6 cycles. I am upset that I had to find all of this out on my own. Things like a Post coital (after intercourse) test to make sure CM is healthy and sperm is getting to the right place, or a test of my uterine lining to make sure its thick enough, i feel so annoyed with my OBGYN!!

Oh man, I am so sorry about the IUI and that you have frustration about all the other tests they could do.  I know there are a lot of girls on here that know more about those tests than I do so hopefully they can give you some more advice on the subject.  I do know that I've seen it take a few tries for an IUI to work -- as evidenced by at least three friends on MH -- but I understand if you want to seek alternatives.  You will narrow it down more and more as time goes on and hopefully, sooner than later, you get your BFP!  Take care and I'm here if you need me.  Kimberleigh

I am so sorry your IUI failed. My RE never had me do the post coital test either, he didn't feel it was necessary. All they did was the hsg test, blood tests and some ultrasounds. I still want to do IUI a couple more times before I do any other testing since IUI worked once for me, although I miscarried at 7 weeks. As Kimberleigh said IUI often takes a few tries. Although after 6 cycles of clomid I can definitely understand why you might want to take a break from it and try other options and testing. I am sorry your doctor didn't give you all the options from the start. Good luck on whatever step you decide to take next.
