IUI, or intrauterine insemination, is a procedure done in a doctor's office that places sperm directly into a woman's uterus to aid in conception. During normal intercourse, only a small percentage of a man's sperm will make it past the woman's cervix and enter the uterus to fertilize the woman's egg. Most of the sperm that is ejaculated during intercourse remains in the vagina.
I found this info very helpful as it is something that we might be trying in the next two cycles of we get another BFN. My only reason for not giving it 5* is I would love to know the price in Euro as I'm not sure how much it is to have done in Ireland. Is it the same as the US or is it more expensive. But other then that it was very helpful. Thank you.
My doctor told me that doing an IUI with unwashed sperm only causes mild cramping and is not a big deal. She recommended that I do it for a better chance of conception. Has anyone tried an IUI with unwashed sperm before?
This is Really helpful...it gave me a great Outlook on what's going on in my body. I just had my 2nd iui a couple days ago. My 1st one didnt wrk..clomid 100mg with hcg trigger...this cycle i took 3 tamoxifen 20mg tablets for 5nites 3 days of 1cc bravelle injections 2days of a bravelle n a half and 2days of 2 bravelle injections with a Hcg trigger shot the next evening and my IUI 36hrs after shot.....im now waiting 4 2weeks 2 test but my Dr. Wants me to come in 7days after my iui 4 my progestrone level check....I'm hoping this cycle produces a pregnancy.
That was a great article! We've just been told be out RE that we will being trying IUI, and I really didn't understand what it was. After reading your article, and another one at http://ivf-info.org/what-is-iui that i'd found, it has helped a huge amount. Although I don't quite understand the difference to "inject" IUI yet, just more reading though I expect.
