I have previously sucessfully concieved and delivered children through IVF. I am now about to marry a man who is not the father of my children and he would really like to have a baby. I don't think I can emotionally and physically or financially go through IVF again. I am trying to get information on IUI to figure out if its something I would consider.

If I do injectables and hyperstimulate and the cycle is cancelled. What happens? Will my body still ovulate them and I just need to obstain or will they decrease and just vanish?

Do you need to be on as high a dose of injectables as you need for IVF?

I don't know a whole lot about injectables since I'm currently doing Clomid IUIs, but one thing the RE told me before I began this journey is the statistics - IUI only has about a 15% success rate each cycle (not sure if injectables are included in that stat though....). I know IVF has something like a 40% success rate. Definitely something to consider.

I did IUI with injectibles. It did not get me pregnant. I did quite a few cycles. For my IVF I was on higher doses (I had to give myself two shots of follistim a day vs. 1 shot of it for IUI). If you hyperstimulate they will not do the IUI and will tell you to avoid intercourse as well.

You did not mention, but what was your diagnosis before that kept you from getting pregnant on your own?

DS was conceived via injectables/trigger/ IUI. I was on 150 IU's (keep saying cc's but that is wrong). This was after two failed cycles of clomid/trigger/IUI. My problem is mainly egg quality, so hyper ovulating only slightly increases my risk for multiples. With DS I had 3 eggs, 2 fertilized I lost one at 7.5 weeks to a chromosomal (bad egg) issue.

I'm doing a cycle of Injectables (Follistim 150 IU's)/trigger/IUI.
This time I should have 4 eggs.

depending on how you responded last time to medication would probably determine what dosage they would have you do, and how aggressive you wanted to be.

Cost wise it, after everything my total out of pocket should be around $2000. That is going to greatly depend on your RE though.

What is the reason for going to injectibles? If you are responding to Femara like I am and ovulating each month, as shown by the ultrasounds and bloodwork, what would be a reason to go to injectibles? Just curious - something I've been wondering.

I'm on my 2nd IUI, FYI.

Injectables are going to make you ovulate more, increasing the odds of getting pregnant- but also increasing the odds of multiples in some women.
