I haven't done IUI but I have been considering it as well and wanted to share about what I have heard. When I talked to the accupuncturist I have been seeing, he mentioned that you need to prepare your body for something like that (including IVF). He said that it takes 3 months to improve follicles, strengthen uterus, and improve sperm (my hubby has low motility).  He mentioned that if your original problems are not addressed, may it be medical or feritility, it makes it more unlikely to be able to carry to full-term.  Having said that, I have a friend who conceived through IUI and now her baby is 6 years old so it does work. Good luck with what you decide to do!

Hope you are doing well...big hug to you!

Hey Cher,

Have moved on from 3 IUIs to IVF later this month. Unexplained fertility in our case so our RE was hopeful, but the success rate is just so low compared to what we are going through in the meantime. I felt like I hadn't heard of many success stories but I guess that's fair given the general success rate.
Good luck to everyone, hang in there, and congrats to those who proved it does work... blessings!

Thank you ladies. It seems hard to find first hand success stories... That's what I was worried about :(

I had 12 cycles, and the last of my IUI was back to back, so all together had 9. 7 I had with my OB/GYN, 3 on femara, no BFPs, only one chemical pregnancy. Last IUI cycle was with my RE, she put me on 100mg clomid, failed. Now I'm waiting for my last round of IUI. I took 150mg clomid, which thinned my lining a bit, but gave me 4 follies, we'll see how many will mature. Will let you know if this last one worked or not in a couple of weeks or so. I hope it will, otherwise we'll have to move on to IVF, which really scares me. I'm sure there are women out there that had success with it. I know I talked to a few at least. Good luck to you!!!

I had awful luck with IUIs. I did 4 or 5 (no BFP), and by the end, my RE agreed that IUI was NOT a method that worked for me and DH. We stopped, and got pregnant (clomid and BDing) the very next cycle (but m/c that pregnancy). Old-fashioned BDing without clomid was what brought me the little miracle boy in my tummy right now (24.5 weeks along). Good luck--everyone is different, you just never know what will work.

We have male factor infertility.  1% normal morphology, varying sperm count
1st IUI, natural cycle, 8 million post wash sperm 3% morphology - BFN
2nd IUI, 100mg clomid, 6 million post wash sperm 1% morphology - BFN
3rd IUI, 100mg clomid, ultrasound monitoring, HCG trigger, 6 million post wash sperm 1% morphology - BFN
4th IUI, 100mg clomid, ultrasound monitoring, HCG trigger, 13! million post wash sperm 1% morphology - BFP!
Unfortunately it ended at 6 weeks because it was an ectopic.

Waiting to try again, hopefully in May.

gosh seeing all these stories REALLY makes me feel like if I'm going the medicated route, IVF is probably better statistics!! I know there are lots of people with bfp's from IUI's, but doesn't seem like many when you look at all the comments on here!
