So, I go back to the doctor tomorrow since our three rounds of clomid didn't get the job done. We said in September that our next step would be timed intercourse. I would like to by pass the timed intercourse b/c I feel like that is what we are already doing and going on to IUI. Any advice on how to put that nicely to the doctor?

Then, I think maybe we should do the timed intercourse b/c it would definitely be cheaper and might get us that BFP.

Ok, I don't know now. Any advice ladies??

I would just explain that to your Dr. It sounds like you've been doing timed intercourse with your clomid the last 3 cycles so it would only seem natural (in my opinion) to move onto IUI. Just talk it out with your Dr...you both will be able to figure out your best course of action.

I think we all time intercourse accordingly when we're actively TTC, especially with our complex situations... I agree with Nicole, tell your doctor you're ready for IUI. I was onl Clomid for 2 cycles and my doctor suggested we move on to IUI, because my charts are perfect, and we're still not able to conceive... I was going to ask him but he suggested it before I could say anything

Good luck and let us know what the verdict is!

Today is day 5 so, I am back on the clomid and if everything checks out good on Tuesday then Wednesday is the big day!!!

I kind of pushed for this cycle. He was talking and I said, so, we will do this next cycle or can we go ahead and try this one? I reminded him that today was day 5 and he said why, yes, we can!!!

Aww I'm so happy for you girl!!! This cycle would have been it for me too but DH wasn't with me when I went to see the doc so we had to wait til next month, to sign papers. Oh well, we have one last month to try!

How much Clomid are you on? Is that the only thing you're on? I take 50mg, nothing else.

Yes, just on clomid 50mg. This will be my 4th time on the clomid and the first with IUI. I am happy about it and have some hope now!

Is this your ob/gyn or a specialist that you talked to? i'm on my 1st round of clomid 50mg (5dpo) he only is going to let me use it for 3 cycles and then refer me to infertility. Im scared of doing all that if it comes to it. I was just wondering if it was ur regular dr that sent you.

This is with my regular, OBGYN, doctor. If three IUI's don't work, then we will be referred to a RE. It seems that every doctor is different in what they will/can do. One lady that I talked to at the doctor's office said that mine was actually very conservative and that the RE's had more options, hormone wise, that could help boost things up.

Good luck, I hope that this will work for you!
