CD18 Update-Postponed IUI

I went back to the clinic on Monday for my baseline ultrasound and labs. I talked to the doctor and after discussing our options, we decided to skip the IUI this month. The doctor wants us to start Gonal-F injectables in combination with Letrozole next cycle (she wanted us to start those this month but my insurance couldn’t ship it out fast enough). We have to pay $395 out of pocket for our IUI so I would rather wait until next month when I have the new meds to help with our chances.

I am really excited about trying IUI for the first time so I am kinda bummed that we are skipping this month. But it just makes more sense to wait until we have the new meds to try it. So this month we are just trying the good old fashion way + Letrozole.

    Good luck with everything. I went through 4 IUIs so if you ever have a question, please don’t hesitate to ask.

        Unfortunately I did not. I have PCOS, endometriosis and a unicornuate uterus. It worked for my sister though. Do not get discouraged. It might take a few times. My sisters 3rd one worked.

    I’m also going through these steps – I ovulated later than the doctor would like, so it’s been postponed to my next cycle as well. I wish you the best of luck!

    On our second IUI round this month! The meds they give you mimic pregnancy so legit don’t google anything. Just wait it out if you can for the two weeks after insemination.
