    4th IUI was the CHARM!

    1. How many IUIs did you do before getting your BFP cycle? 4
    2. How many mature follicles did you have? Sizes at trigger? 12,17,20
    3. What were your sperm counts & motility post-wash? 95 million - 75% motility
    4. How many inseminations did you do for the BFP cycle? 1
    5. What were the timing (hours after trigger or surge) of those IUI's for your BFP cycle? IUI was 24 hours after trigger
    6. What medications were you using & dosage, if any? 150mg clomid CD3-CD8, then HCG trigger (now taking prometrium 200mg 2 x daily)
    7. What day past trigger (for consistency) did you get your BFP? 22 days past trigger
    8. Did you have implantation spotting? no, but did get a light period (which is why I didn't get my BFP until 22 dptrigger! I thought I AF was here!!
    9. First Beta number(s)? 242 on 23 dptrigger
    10. If you know yet, how many babies? not sure yet - I'm assuming only 1 since my beta isn't high (won't find out until u/s in one week)
    11. Any other advice during the 2WW or symptoms that helped you know this was "the" cycle? The only symptom I had (in hindsight) was increased CM. I really had no idea!

    Good luck everyone!

    I'm a 2nd time IUI success poster. Happy to be back!

    I just had my beta yesterday (14dpiui) and it was 118. Here is my story for this time around:

    1. How many IUIs did you do before getting your BFP cycle? this was our 2nd attempt
    2. How many mature follicles did you have? Sizes at trigger? 2 follies, I don't exactly recall. I think maybe 21 and 17 a few days before trigger.
    3. What were your sperm counts & motility post-wash? 10 million mobile is what the doc said.
    4. How many inseminations did you do for the BFP cycle? one
    5. What were the timing (hours after trigger or surge) of those IUI's for your BFP cycle? 37 hours after ovidrel trigger shot
    6. What medications were you using & dosage, if any? Clomid 150mg days 3-7
    7. What day past trigger (for consistency) did you get your BFP? 13 days past iui
    8. Did you have implantation spotting? No
    9. First Beta number(s)? 118
    10. If you know yet, how many babies? too early to tell.
    11. Any other advice during the 2WW or symptoms that helped you know this was "the" cycle? I have had crazy dreams every night for the past week. Other than that, no symptoms. Although after my BFP, I have felt a little queasy twice eating. Didn't have morning sickness with my first pg so I'm hoping to be lucky enough again this time not to have it much. My advice would be prayer and try not to stress.

    Smile 4th IUI worked!

    I am 37, DH is 39. We had been trying for 19 months total. After about 9-10 months with just Clomid, my regular gyn and I determined I was not ovulating even on Clomid (using Basal temp chart). She referred me to fertility specialist. On first visit, fertility doc determined I had a very large uterine polyp, benign on biopsy. Had laproscopic/hysteroscopic surgery to remove it. Then 2 months later, we tried IUI for the first time. After 3 IUIs and no BFP, we were a little despondent and took a break from treatments and decided to move on to IVF. Then I read all of the posts on this page and decided not to give up on IUI so readily. Tried a 4th and it worked!

    1. How many IUIs did you do before getting your BFP cycle? Four. After the first 3, we took a 2-3 month break and tried on our own. Then, we did IUI #4and got a BFP! A few things were different about our 4th cycle. Who knows what was responsible for our +, so I'll just describe them all: DH and I usually had two glasses of wine each night. Leading up to the IUI, we curtailed that significantly. Also, I was pretty stressed due to infertility and work factors and carried a lot of tension in my back, so about a month before the IUI, I started getting chiropractic adjustments. I suspect what made the biggest difference, however, is that during our break from IUIs I used home ov predictor kits and discovered my LH surge was consistently on day 18 of my cycle. On previous IUIs, we had them usually around day 15 or 16. For our BFP, we did our IUI on day 18 (also did Ovidrel trigger shot 36 hrs before) and BMS on day 19. Also, the day before IUI, I tried to really de-stress -- got a pedicure and a facial and tried to think very positively, which is hard for a worrier like me. Following the IUI procedure, instead of returning to work as I had in the past, I went home and laid down on the couch with a pillow under my rear and watched TV for about 3-4 hours and tried to remain positive.

    2. How many mature follicles did you have? Sizes at trigger? I had 2 mature follicles, measuring approx 17 each.

    3. What were your sperm counts & motility post-wash? - Counts were low, so take heart - it can work even with low counts. Total motile of 4 million. 0% A, 50% B quality (doc says it is very rare to have As).

    4. How many inseminations did you do for the BFP cycle? Just one.

    5. What were the timing (hours after trigger or surge) of those IUI's for your BFP cycle? Ovidrel trigger shot 36 hours before.

    6. What medications were you using & dosage, if any? Femara days 3-7 of cycle, not sure of dosage - 2 pills each night, and then Ovidrel trigger shot 36 hours before IUI (which meant setting alarm for 3a.m.).

    7. What day past trigger (for consistency) did you get your BFP? 13 days post IUI.

    8. Did you have implantation spotting? No, but did have very mild cramping.

    9. First Beta number(s)? 14DPIUI - hcg 193, progesterone 50.9. Two days later, hcg more than doubled to 473!

    10. If you know yet, how many babies? Don't know, will have first ultrasound to detect heartbeat in two weeks.

    11. Any other advice during the 2WW or symptoms that helped you know this was "the" cycle?
    It was much like many of the success stories on this page - felt like I was premenstrual, but the mild cramping started several days earlier than usual PMS. Then breasts very tender starting about 1-2 days before BFP. I had a hunch this cycle was different, but did not want to get my hopes up so told myself it was just PMS. Took HPT expecting to go back to bed for a crying jag, but HPT said "PREGNANT"! I only use the digital HPT so that there is no subjectivity in interpreting the results.

    I got pg with IUI twice, but my second time was a lot more interesting and a longer road so I'll describe that one for you.

    1. How many IUIs did you do before getting your BFP cycle? 7 consecutive cycles

    2. How many mature follicles did you have? One. I believe it was a 16 or 17.

    3. What were your sperm counts & motility post-wash? 9 mil with around 50% motility. (It was frozen.)

    4. How many inseminations did you do for the BFP cycle? 1

    5. What were the timing (hours after trigger or surge) of those IUI's for your BFP cycle? I ovulated on my own without trigger.

    6. What medications were you using & dosage, if any? None

    7. What day past trigger (for consistency) did you get your BFP? Oddly enough, day 8 post IUI.

    8. Did you have implantation spotting? Yes, for almost two weeks starting on day 10 post iui.

    9. First Beta number(s)? 10dpIUI - 21, 13dpIUI - 126

    10. If you know yet, how many babies? one

    11. Any other advice during the 2WW or symptoms that helped you know this was "the" cycle? No. But my two male cats always got super friendly. They were glued to me, especially at night when I was sleeping. I had no symptoms until week 7. (Other than implantation spotting with the second pregnancy. I had no spotting at all with my first.)

    Best of luck!

    First IUI Successful!

    Hi,
    We tried to conceive for 1 year, and then decided to go to a specialist,
    All tests were normal, however, HSG took three tries to make sure tubes were fine. I was started on clomid and after just one cycle, we decided to go for IUI. So earlier this month, I had IUI with Clomid.
    Went for blood test today and found out that I'm pregnant!
    I still cant believe it, but have to go for a repeat blood test in a day.
    All I can say, keep the faith, have patience, and also continue to be pro-active.
    God Bless Us All!!!!!

    I'm so excited I finally get to post on this thread!! I'm living proof that IUI with only 100,000 sperm post wash works!!! I'm now a firm believer that timing is everything when doing IUI.

    1. How many IUIs did you do before getting your BFP cycle? this was the 2nd try

    2. How many mature follicles did you have? Sizes at trigger? Just one at 21mm on the day of trigger.

    3. What were your sperm counts & motility post-wash? 100,000

    4. How many inseminations did you do for the BFP cycle? 1

    5. What were the timing (hours after trigger or surge) of those IUI's for your BFP cycle? 37 hours

    6. What medications were you using & dosage, if any? 100mg Clomid cycle days 3 - 7 and 150iu Menopur on CD9

    7. What day past trigger (for consistency) did you get your BFP? 15 dptrigger

    8. Did you have implantation spotting? no

    9. First Beta number(s)? Beta #1 (14dpo):74 - Beta #2 (20dpo): 1699

    10. If you know yet, how many babies? not sure but thinking just one

    11. Any other advice during the 2WW or symptoms that helped you know this was "the" cycle? I was convinced that this cycle didn't work because we only had 100,000 sperm post wash. I walked around the whole 2ww planning steps towards IVF. I had an IVF consultation scheduled for last Thursday which is the reason I did an FRER just to prove to myself that we could move on to IVF and low and behold it was a BFP. I was so shocked!!! Needless to say I canceled my IVF appt LOL. The only thing that made me think for a split second during the 2ww is that I had a major break out on my chest. That never ever happens to me.
